You'll love this great cottage - a perfect holiday choice close to city , nature, beaches and wildlife..

Bird watch, visit the Aquarium, wander the hillsides and abundant tracks to discover to hidden coves and beaches - the Otago Peninsula has it all....

Situated high on the spectacular Otago Peninsula, 'Highcliff' is the perfect place to relax and take in all the local natural attractions.

Outstanding sea views and minutes from New Zealand's own historic castle - Lanach Castle. View the antics of yellow-eyed penguins, seals, sea-lions, Royal Albatross and enjoy wonderful walks - Buskin Track, Paradise Track, Greenacres Track - and this place is just stones throw to Sandfly Bay.

Just 14klm from heart of the city Dunedin,with its fabulous cafes, galleries, restaurants and shopping - and the University of Otago if you're visiting your studious off-spring but student digs aren't for you .

The cottage is also close to the village of Portobello for local shopping and your latte...

You're also close to Dunedin's main airport- 45 minutes - and which also has rental cars available from there.

This warm and welcoming holiday accommodation is in a very beautiful quiet garden setting - great for kids, outdoor areas to relax in the sun.

    Absolutely loved this property - amazing views, cosy lounge with fireplace lovely house and central to the many attractions on the Peninsula. Our three children loved the board games, garden and reading - all while looking at the expansive sea view.

    This is a beautiful home - even better than the pictures - with so many thoughtful details. Perfectly clean, really comfy beds, lovely linen, very snuggy doonas, excellent fire and heaps of wood, loads of space, well equipped kitchen, interesting books, stunning view, great location. Can't imagine a better house on the peninsula. Great value. Thank you Joanna for all the effort you have put into creating a welcoming holiday house.
