Description

  • Delightful and attractive pioneers cottage
  • Wildlife nearby, 5 minutes from albatrosses, seals, sea lions and penguins
  • Lovely coastal walks, spectacular night sky viewing, close to Larnach Castle

A charming 1860s original early settlers cottage, recently restored to a high standard, providing unique accommodation. Enjoy the modern facilities and fantastic rural coastal location, central for all travel and tourist options. All main tourist information is available for you in the cottage, along with detailed maps.

The rural location is peaceful and the cottage enjoys a private, pretty cottage garden with table and chairs and sun umbrella. You can relax and observe the night sky in this area as it is unspoilt by artificial lights, it is ideal and spectacular for star gazing.

Come and explore a wide range of beaches, walks and boat trips. We are close to Portobello Village, the wildlife centre of Otago, with yellow eyed penguins and little blue penguins, the albatross colony, seals, sea lions, occasional whales and dolphins, birdlife and more. Larnach Castle and its wonderful garden are a short drive away. Outstanding arts and crafts are to be found on the Peninsula. Many sports including surfing, sea kayaking, cycling, .

We are on the bus route to Dunedin City Centre with a full service from Portobello. Cyclists enjoy the peninsula harbourside road, and the city is also constructing a new cycle trail which will go around the whole harbour.

Its an easy walk or cycle ride, or short drive to the popular Portobello Village and Bay. Portobello provides a great range of walks, restaurants, cafes, galleries, a friendly pub and well stocked village shop for your basic grocery needs.

Self contained and self catering, we can provide choices for you, including meals and tours by arrangement.

The owners live in the property next door, Crabapple Cottage, and are available to help you with any special requests.

Special conditions: The cottage is old so guests are asked to treat gently. We collect our own rain water which is excellent to drink, and aim to conserve water where possible. The attic is accessed by a fold-up loft ladder/attic staircase, which is new and safe but narrower than a full staircase. It also has a stair gate at the top for safety. There is no smoking inside the cottage. The kitchen has a small oven, a microwave and other equipment, fine for most peoples needs (i.e. not a full size oven).

  • Great location - very close to albatrosses, coast, harbour, walks and wildlife

    Great location - very close to albatrosses, coast, harbour, walks and wildlife. Cosy romantic cottage with wonderfully comfortable beds and spacious bathroom. Everything lovely and clean with flowers in various rooms. Cottage is historic pioneer's cottage with lots of atmosphere and original features - surprisingly warm too, with heaters and electric blankets. Can self-cater or there are cafes nearby.
