  • Beautiful cosy house

    Beautiful cosy house. Very clean and comfortable. We were mostly up in the clouds for our stay, which was very 'heavenly'. However, when the clouds did clear, there were amazing views. Close to Sandfly Bay which is beautiful and only 15 min to Dunedin city centre. Would stay again for sure.

  • The best place we stayed at in NZ and was very reasonably...

    The best place we stayed at in NZ and was very reasonably priced. The kids loved playing in the garden, loved the wood fire, the furnishings, the kitchen and the basic supplies left for our convienience. Not to mention the view which was fantastic. We look forward to returning to the peninsula to stay one day.

  • Great place and location

    Great place and location. We especially loved the fire place and wooden floor. Great for relaxing after a busy day out with the children. Only a 10 min drive out of the city centre. Beautiful views out of the kitchen and dining area. Well book next time we are in Dunedin.

  • Absolutely loved the bach, really cosy in winter, but lots of room

    Absolutely loved the bach, really cosy in winter, but lots of room. The boys (2 x 5 year olds) even had their own play area, which they loved, as well as their own bedroom, which made for two sets of happy parents. The view out to sea is wonderful, you could literally spend hours looking out to sea. Well positioned for all that the Peninsular has to offer, and easy access to Dunedin and supermarkets etc. Lovely and clean, highly recommend it and hope we can come back one day.
