30 minutes' drive from Akaroa, on the south-eastern corner of Banks peninsula is Pōhatu/Flea bay, the perfect place for your next farmstay. As soon as you arrive you will be welcomed by many breeds of sheep, be amazed by the tranquil surroundings and isolation with relaxing private beaches, bush and many walks to explore.
On your own or with your family and friends there is an accommodation for you.
There are 4 different sleeping units available from the standard "Penguin cottage" to the more quirky "Gypsy wagon" or "Tree house".
Each unit is separated and offer privacy but the facilities such as kitchen and toilet blocks might have to be shared.
Pōhatu/Flea bay is a working sheep and cattle farm and was the first one officially established on Banks peninsula in 1843.
The Helps family moved in early 70's to what was at the time a run down farm. What they did not expect was to find that other residents were present: the White-flippered penguins, Canterbury's unique variant of the Little penguin.
