The Double Dutch Guesthouse is a quiet, cosy & comfortable home set in the serenely beautiful Okains Bay. We are a 20-acre small sheep farm only a 15-20 minute walk, 5 minute bike ride, or 2 minute drive from Okains Bay Beach - often described as the 'Best Beach on the Banks Peninsula'. We are surrounded by lush volcanic hillsides...every angle is postcard worthy. The Guesthouse is the perfect place to get away from the hustle & bustle of the city, or a start or finish to your NZ adventure!

L'espai
The Guesthouse is a 3-bedroom home with an open floor-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area and washing facilities. It is situated at the entrance of a 20-acre sheep farm with easy access for multiple vehicles amongst beautiful lavender bushes and fruit trees. The owners live in the 1890s Colonial Cottage just 20 metres from the Guesthouse if you have any questions or concerns. Pots, pans, tea towels, coffee plunger, rice cooker, and a stove/oven and microwave are provided in the kitchen and all bed-linen, bath towels and beach towels are provided. There is a TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs, but no sky TV. The guesthouse would be suitable for couples, families, or respectful groups of friends. The main room is a king + single bed with full ensuite bathroom, and the queen bed and triple single bed rooms share a separate full bathroom. *PLEASE NOTE: The guesthouse is located on a working farm. If you are bringing children they need to be supervised on the property. Also, we charge the same additional amount ($25/day) for all humans over the age of 2, and have an 8 person total occupancy plus one portacot and high chair is available for an infant. Thank you for understanding, we find that each additional person, no matter how small, creates an additional strain on our systems and property, as well as more cleaning for us. Have a great stay :) *

Serveis i zones comuns
Laundry room within the house is available. Full kitchen amenities and wrap-around veranda accessible to all rooms with hill-side and pastoral views. Fresh free-range eggs when available. Farm tours also available on request.

Altres coses per tenir en compte
Our property is on the Opara riverfront and the birdlife is abundant, including fantails (piwakawaka), wood pigeons (kereru), bellbirds (korimako), NZ kingfisher (kotare), pukeko, white-faced heron, spur-winged plovers, pied (torea) and black oystercatchers, pied stilt (poaka), California quail, Australasian harrier (kahu), many types of ducks including the paradise shellduck (putangitangi)...the list goes on and on.

We advise you to visit a supermarket in Christchurch or Akaroa to buy fresh ingredients as we are a self-catering guesthouse. The small store in Okains Bay can provide you with basic supplies, such as milk, sugar etc. but has limited opening hours.

Coming from Christchurch there is a New World supermarket in Halswell, just a few kilometers out of Christchurch on SH 75. Akaroa has a Four Square supermarket. Coming from Mount Cook/Lake Tekapo there are supermarkets in Geraldine and Ashburton.

The Okains Bay Store is open on select weekend and holiday nights from 4-7 pm for fish and chips. Just ask for an updated schedule on booking :)

Okains Bay, Canterbury, Nova Zelanda

Okains Bay is a small community of approximately 100 residents in the Banks Peninsula, only a 20-minute drive from the flourishing French town of Akaroa with grocery and shops. Akaroa is famous for its swimming with the dolphins, dolphin watching, sailing trips, fine dining and is a lovely and quaint township with French heritage. We are happy to advise you on the choice of operators.

There is a lovely local store offering basic groceries/essentials, home baking and conversation and was opened in 1876, a local school and exceptional Museum known for its Maori and Colonial collector's items lovingly cared for by locals.

The store does have limited opening hours and the Guesthouse is self-catering, so it is advised that you stop at a grocery store prior to arriving in Okains Bay for your groceries.

There is a tennis court available nearby for a few dollars per use (Museum donation). We have a small supply of tennis rackets available for hire if you'd like to give it a go.

There is a large children's playground with flying fox close to the beach.

Our property is river-front and there are nice flat walking loops for all ability levels, including our favourite which is a 1 hour 10 minute walk down the riverbank (at low to mid-tide), across the beach to the volcanic caves, and down the charming country road back to your home away from home. Spectacular!

We are a young couple with a daughter born in July 2018, a german shepherd and a puppy border collie / black lab cross living on our 20-acre sheep farm in Okains Bay. We would love the opportunity to share our little slice of heaven with people looking to see a truly beautiful and unique part of New Zealand. When we're not working on the farm, we enjoy traveling, skiing, standup paddleboarding, surfing and, of course, tramping. See you soon!

Durant la teva estada
We (Reagan & Will) are often involved with farm activities including work with the sheep flock, chooks and veggie garden. We provide fresh free-range eggs from our chooks when available and access to the seasonal veggie garden for herbs for fresh ingredients for your meals. We offer farm tours, feeding the sheep, and helping with feeding of the bottle-fed lambs in season. We are also outdoor enthusiasts and can offer advice and maps of popular (and less known) hikes/tramps, local activities around Banks Peninsula such as swimming with dolphins and catamaran cruises, and many other activities to keep you as busy as you'd like to be on your holiday.
