The Giant's House, Akaroa

This is what we came for "The giant House" and it was breath taking. If you ever go to Akaroa this is a must see, a step into wonder. This colourful, whimsical world is created by Josie Martin, who is trained in horticulture and art and it is not surprising that she has won many awards and scholarships. Close your eyes, tick your heals and magic appears (don't forget to open your eyes silly)
Josie restored this house which was built in 1880
Millions of pieces of tiles are used and some cups
Who wants to eat from a prima ballerina table
Just sit back and enjoy
