Long Beach Post Office is a quintessential Kiwi bach in the relaxing seaside community of Long Beach Dunedin, only 25 mins scenic drive north of the University city, Dunedin, and 10 mins away from Port Chalmers. Port Chalmers is a chalming, port town with artisan shops, cafes, restaurants, music venue (Chic’s Hotel), petrol station laundry mat and supermarket.

This cosy holiday home was the original Long Beach Post Office. The quaint, historical cottage is a well-loved, family get-away on a large, private, flat section. It is situated directly opposite a large domain with a children’s playground and cricket pitch. There is nothing more peaceful than waking to the songs of native birds, tui and bell birds, echoing off the cliffs to the backdrop of the gentle rolling surf.

UNLIMITED Wifi available onsite, also equipped with books, playstation 3, board games, iPod dock, DVD’s and CD’s.

Firewood is provided for the log burner which quickly warms the crib, and the recent new roof and insulation insures the cottage stays warm and comfy.

Long Beach itself, a renowned quiet, family-safe beach, offers an array of different activities including rock-climbing, caving, surfing, fishing, swimming, biking and bush/beach walks. Long beach caves are amazing, and the beach is surprisingly quiet given how beautiful it is. The name Long Beach comes from the fact that it is a very long, unspoiled beach. Bush walks are on both sides of the beach. Seals, dolphins and shellfish.

Orokonui Ecosanctuary, nationally renowned nature reserve, is a short 5 minute drive, with native birds (including Kiwis, Kaka, NZ Robin, takahe, kakariki, tui, kereru and tuatara lizard) café and education centre, perfect for family visits.

The bach can easily sleep 5 people, with possibility for one more. Please ask if required. 2 bedrooms, bathroom with shower, and clean outdoor toilet, open plan kitchen and living room.

Check in and out times negotiable upon request.

  • It’s in a lovely place, Long Beach is an amazing beach

    It’s in a lovely place, Long Beach is an amazing beach. Everything was clean and tidy and well explained by e-mail or by notes in the folder. The house was well equipped. The video game, the board games and the DVDs kept my children occupied when we couldn’t go out. The toilet being outside wouldn’t have been an issue if the weather had been a bit nicer, but it was cold, windy and raining most of the week, so by the end of the week, we were really tired of needing to go outside.

    We had a terrific time at Long Beach, such a beautiful place to escape for a few nights.

  • Beautiful location

    Beautiful location. Nicely renovated bach. Clean, thoughtful provisions. An electric blanket for colder nights would be appreciated. Dry firewood would make using the log burner less of an art. I did not think through the rural implications - a 10 day stay is a bit too long to be using a long drop. All up, a good experience. Thank you for sharing your bach.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks Bob. We choose not to have electric blanket for fire safety reasons, but there are always plenty of blankets, which I'm not sure you used. Plus it is super cosy in the cottage especially now with curtains between the rooms. So glad you had a nice stay!
