Double Dutch is a small, homey place in Okains Bay, Akaroa. We really enjoyed our stay there. The proprietors live onsite, and are very helpful. There are only three rooms, so it's a small, intimate setting. The house is lovely, well-appointed, and immaculate. The kitchen is large, and there are eating spaces both indoors and outdoors. This was our favorite hostel by far.

Wandering through a quiet township

A travel blog entry by asidal on May 03, 2014

... local police officer, who happened to be casually wandering back down the pier, whether that's a public road and is there a look out point? Yes, he's says, you can drive up there but it eventually becomes gravel and there are a couple of places you can stop. So this becomes our plan for the afternoon. We return to the motel to grab some lunch (leftover fish and chips) and then hop in the car to make our way back along the township and up into the hills over ...

We've made it

... Monday. That meant we would have to stay a day longer in Akaroa than we planned so we immediately asked the hotel if we could stay on an extra night. We were in luck as this is peak season in NZ and we were even able to stay on in our small apartment without having to move to another. When we woke we discovered that one bedroom and the living room had beautiful views across the bay. We were right on the sea front but up on the first floor with a balcony so we could sit outside ...

... that are just so cool was amazing. That night, sharing 9 bunkbeds under deck with a snoring symphony of strangers that had become friends within a matter of hours was unforgettable…and the dip in the ocean when the sun was rising the next morning.

Let me leave with a giggle for the day. Conversation between mother and daughter:

Mum, what is “normal”.

“It’s a setting on the dryer, darling.”

Thank you for ...

Down State Highway 1 (SH1) to our first port of call – Foxton – for a quick visit to Steve where we originally left the bus when first purchased and then onto Merv who kindly put us up for 6 weeks while said bus was finished to our satisfaction and on this occasion provided us with a lovely meal and safe parking for the night. The following day we made our way to Levin (accent on the vin). We had been recommended by John and Joyce (of JJZZzzz fame) that a POP run ...

The Big BBQ

... Daniels dad, Trevor has been carrying out lots of repairs and modifications to his house as part of the earthquake repairs. His house is at the top of a hill and he seems to overlook everyone, but to get a first rate view of the water and countryside, he has added a first floor. The view is to die for, looking over the estuary of the Heathcote and Avon rivers, and over the Southshore spit, into Pegasus Bay. It was such ...
