We are just a few minutes stroll along the Esplanade to vibrant Sumner Village where there are various shops, a wonderful bohemian bakery, art galleries, cafés, restaurants and the Sumner Hollywood Movie Theatre.
Out the gate, we are only 3 houses up, cross the road and you're onto the beach where swimming, surfing and SUB boarding are favourites
with locals and visitors alike.
For the adventurous, head for the hills for some great hiking
mountain biking tracks.
We are only 25 minutes easy drive back into the city
and a perfect day trip to Akaroa
