    Highcliff is a beautiful house perched on the top of the Otago Peninsula. It has stunning views of the ocean and is only minutes away from great tramps and Larnack Castle. The house is large, spacious and very clean. It has the best sun room! One note: there is no internet, but it is available at the nearby cafe in Portobello.

    Spectacular! The house is beautiful - so much space and the view to die for. Very grateful for the wood heater - we put it to good use. The house was handy to everything we wanted to do both in Dunedin and on the Peninsula. I would highly recommend this house - hope we will have the opportunity to come back!
