A DEFINING EXPERIENCE IN AKAROA DINING & ACCOMMODATION
Dining at The Gables
Once again Lyn is offering her home as a dining destination for lunches and dinners. She will prepare a seasonal meal especially for your group of 6-10 family or friends, taking note of any dietary preferences.
Having guided and cooked for small group tours in many regions of Italy for the last 20 years, as well as owning a home in Puglia, Lyn’s food is very influenced by the fresh robust flavours of the Mediterranean diet. Her potager provides most of the produce that Lyn will use when designing your meal.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast at The Gables
With accommodation in just one guest room . . .
our aim is for our clients to have an experience they will treasure,
to enjoy the moment and all that ‘The Gables’ has to offer.
Peace, privacy in an environment that is totally unique.
Built out of solid Totara in the 1860s for a local farmer “The Gables” luxury accommodation in Akaroa has been lovingly restored. It accurately captures the romanticism of the age without compromising on comfort. The wallpaper and drapes have been imported from England, and a Stanley woodstove, imported from Ireland, is used for cooking and keeps the whole house warm in winter. The specially-selected antique pieces give the house its unique atmosphere.
Your double bedroom has its own private courtyard, an en-suite bathroom and a private dining room, which opens out onto a verandah with breathtaking views of the harbour. You’ll adore the superb brass double bed and antiques.
Your private sitting room has garden views. Your private dining room features an open fireplace with a kauri surround and a wonderful panorama of Akaroa Harbour towards the heads.
As the only guests you will enjoy the exclusive ambience of “The Gables” while being pampered in the relaxed atmosphere created by Lyn.
The superb grounds have been landscaped to accentuate the magnificent views. These, together with the magnificent old oaks, walnuts, plane trees and natives, are a feature of the property.
Enjoy the free range hens, sheep, horse, ducks, cats and dog along with a variety of native birds.
