Whats in Akaroa?
If you are going to stay in the Cottage you should check out this site www.historicakaroa.co.nz
As you will see there is plenty to see
One of the cottage neighbours ,Suky Thomson, runs the Akaroa Civic Trust. This is their site.
John sourced some wood and the infamous toilet from Suky and she has followed the restoration closely.
Pavitt Cottage has been fully restored and is ready for you to use.

A trust has been set up and we need to keep this legacy running with the proceeds from hiring the Cottage.

We have set the rent at $70 per night (half local Price) plus $10 per person to cover power, gas, and custodian services.
(N.B. for 1 night only it is $90 plus $10pp)

i.e. 2 people = $90 per night, $45 each
     4 people = $110 per night, $27.50 each
          "very reasonable rates"

Non family members $110 per night + $10pp
(must be booked by family member)

The cottage has now been fully furnished by John & Christine including Cutlery, Crockery & linen. All you need to take is food & clothes.  The trustees have  arranged for a local lady to service the Cottage after you leave, this will insure its ready for the next guests.
