"Comfortably Numb" a very cute wee crib in great condition with large outside decks.

Wake up to the sound of bird song from the Tui's, Bell Birds, oystercatchers, woodpigeons etc.

Fabulous location right beside the water. Boating, canoeing and fishing right on your doorstep in a very safe inlet.

Collect cockles( Clams ) at low tide, take one of the many walks or just watch it all happen from the deck.

Visit Port Chalmers (10 minutes away) with its designer shops, cafes and restaurants.

Or take a 10 minutes drive to the Orokanui bird sanctuary or the other small costal settlements such as Karitane.

    Loved this neat tidy relaxing crib, especially sitting on the sheltered deck and making full use of great BBQ. Hope to return.

  • A 4-star crib; clean, warm, newly decorated, and exceptionally well equipped

    A 4-star crib; clean, warm, newly decorated, and exceptionally well equipped. It sits nestled in a gorgeous quiet spot, and having the use of the dinghy/kayak is a real bonus. Parking is limited and there is a short hike up the stairs to the house, and if you aren't sure about drinking tank water we'd advise bringing your own bottled drinking supply. Overall however this property is highly recommended, and close to lovely deserted beaches, within easy reach of Dunedin as well as many activities.
