Popular Akaroa Waterfront Motels for sale

Popular Akaroa Waterfront Motels for sale

12 May 2008: Akaroa Waterfront Motels, two popular and immaculately presented motels on a prime waterfront site in the popular South Island town, are for sale as a going concern with a price tag of $1.3 million plus GST (if any).

The only motels on the water's edge in the popular Banks Peninsula destination near Christchurch, Akaroa Waterfront Motels consist of two two-storeyed motels - Driftwood and Wai-iti - both located at 56 - 64 Rue Jolie, Akaroa but separated by a small stream.

Being marketed by Harcourts Christchurch City Commercial Sales Consultant Bruce Page the .39 hectare harbourside property offers a total of 24 units and a sizeable house and garage for the owner/manager - all in a park-like setting within walking distance of Akaroa's attractions.

Driftwood, which is located right on the water's edge, has 12 ground floor and first floor units that sleep one to four people and all have stunning water views. Wai-iti, which is set at a right angle to the waters edge, boasts 12 units which range from one to three bedrooms each, with the upstairs units all offering spectacular water views. Meanwhile the owner/managers house is a three-four bedroom home with two bathrooms, an office and lots of storage.

In addition the motel grounds include a private jetty, a large off-street car park (with room for 24 vehicles), plus space to keep boat trailers. There is also a well-equipped laundry, a private spa in a tropical setting and portable gas barbecues, along with boats and kayaks for hire.

Mr Page says that given the motels location, immaculate presentation and track record of success he is confident they will attract considerable interest.

"The motels are on arguably one of the best sites in Akaroa. What's more they're in great condition and are reportedly turning a good profit too - so they present an opportunity not to be missed."

A popular choice for both tourists and locals, the motels cater to families, couples and independent travellers alike and enjoy a lot of return visitors, particularly from Christchurch, Mr Page says.

"Constructed of low maintenance materials, the whole complex was repainted in January 2007. Last year the owners, who currently run the business with assistance from a number of a number of casual staff, also totally refurbished eight units, as part of their ongoing maintenance plan."
