All bookings require a credit card number or deposit of 1 night's accommodation to confirm reservations. We accept Visa and Mastercard. Payment of the full stay is charged 48 hours prior arrival, unless specified differently (ie; prepaid package).

Cancellations made within 48 hours of the reservation date are liable for those nights' accommodation affected. If the room can be resold, a $20 cancellation fee will apply to each room night cancelled. There are no fees payable if the room is cancelled more than 48 hours from the reservation date unless specified at the time of booking. A non-refundable deposit may also be required during periods of heavy demand such as public holidays and the Christmas / New Year period.


From the 3rd of December 2021, New Zealand is changing to the Covid-19 Protection Framework (Traffic Light System).

We have followed Government recommendations and as an accommodation business we are able to operate under green, orange or red lights. My Vaccine Pass is not required to stay with us.

However, we are following Government guidelines, and we are changing the way we operate slightly, for the safety of our guests and employees:

  • We ask our guests to use face coverings when entering the reception or when dealing with our staff and other guests within 2 meters of distance.
  • We are using contactless check-in for every booking and we are not servicing the unit during the stay (we are happy to drop clean towels or extra amenities at the door if needed, special procedure for long stay over 7 nights).
  • It is mandatory to keep a record of our visitors, please scan our QR code (located by your room number) or use the alternative option at the reception. We also require name and contact details of each person staying for group bookings.
  • Keep good hygiene including washing your hands regularly and sneezing in your elbow.
  • Keep distance from other guests who are not from your bubble and from our staff.
  • If you have cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms, stay home.
  • Our staff are wearing face coverings when in contact with guests and we apply strict cleaning procedures.

Please email us at info@akaroawaterfront.co.nz if you have any questions.

Stay safe.
