This warm and cosy, comfortable house will sleep up to 5 people and is located in the heart of Portobello. Very spacious for a 2 bed property. Hotel quality bed linen and towels. It features a good sized, full kitchen and open plan dining and living area.

Portobello is only a 20 minute drive on the low road beside the stunning Otago Harbour from Dunedin or take the high road and see both sides of the spectacular Otago Peninsula. Handy for a drive into town for the events at Forsyth Barr Stadium or many other attractions.

Enjoy local walks or explore the Peninsula beaches for wildlife, including penguins, seals and sea-lions. Local attractions include Larnach Castle, the Royal Albatross colony at Taiaroa Head, Penguin Place and Nature's Wonders to name a few. In Portobello, we have the World famous Happy Hens shop and the Art Gallery where you can purchase work from local artists.

After a long day exploring the Peninsula, park the car at the house and walk to the Portobello Hotel or 1908 Cafe for dinner. Alternatively, visit the Dunedin Farmer's market at the Dunedin Railway Station, to purchase the local ingredients for your romantic, home-cooked evening meal. Perhaps you fancy fish and chips from the award winning Ric's Galley takeaway or even try to catch a salmon from the harbour.

Dim the lights and settle down in front of the wood burner for a romantic evening and make plans for your next Otago Peninsula adventure. A BBQ will be available in the summer months. A number of interesting books, games and DVDs are available for you to use.

Your hosts Jenny and Rob live in the Villa next door and will leave you to your own devices. We are happy to be contacted should you have any questions or need tips about how to spend your time here.
