Detached 3 bedroom two storey house. Waterside position overlooking Pudding Island and Dunedin harbour at Portobello on the Otago Peninsula. Cottage garden, extensive decking with breath taking views yet enjoying total privacy. Main bedroom has balcony and sea views. Fully modernised, well insulated and cosy.


Amazing views. Watch the ships pass by from the extensive deck and your bedroom balcony.

Safe walkway alongside cottage into village of Portobello - pub, restaurant, fish n chips (voted one of the top 5 in NZ), cafe with internet, harbourside and peninsula walks. Quiet and secluded yet open to harbour and island views. Hear the native bird song whilst relaxing in the garden.

The expansive cottage garden has something in flower all year round. The Rhododendrons in Spring and abundant bush roses in high Summer are a delight to behold. Winding pathways meander amongst the flower beds. Sit on the bench and watch the sailing boats pass by.

  • Beautiful views, very nice garden

    Beautiful views, very nice garden. The terrace is great but lacks a parasol, so using it in the afternoon was roughly impossible. Living room is in contemporary style, well done. The kitchen is okay if you accept that refurbisment has been done only halfways (open a drawer and you see, that is has been painted only to the mid.). The kitchen equipment is very basic. The sleeping rooms are okay, the toilet too old and not up to the standard of the saloon. Cleanliness was substandard.

  • 2 Aucklanders and 2 Cantabrians - we stayed for 5 nights

    2 Aucklanders and 2 Cantabrians - we stayed for 5 nights. Loved the view out to the water and the outlook over the garden. Bleak weather did not stop us getting on with Dunedin stuff. Proved to be a good house just to chill out in during the evenings, excellent hear pump and excellent eating places in near-by Portobello. Be aware of steepish staircase to 2 bedrooms upstairs. Recommended accommodation, particularly if you're 'doing' the Peninsular.
