... the Gingerbread Lodge, although quite charming, was located next to the kitchen and at 6:30AM Miki was preparing a breakfast for another guest’s early start. We’ve driven about 1.5 hours to the Banks Peninsula, which is sort of equivalent to driving from Boston up the coast and landing in a scenic area with a small town. We’ve arrived at the ...

... scenery we have seen today is undescribable. Photos cannot begin to do justice to what we have seen and experienced. In all our travels, we never seen anything quite like this.

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.
