15 minutes north of Dunedin, Warrington is one of otago's safest swimming beaches, patrolled over summer and always popular with kayakers or surfers when the weather is rough. A short walk from the house is Blueskin bay where you can explore the many tracks or forage for cockels (southern clams) or oysters if you know where to look.

A walkway below the house leads to rocks where you can try fishing or collecting paua, the kids will be occupied for days!

There are many interesting drives within an hour of Warrington, the Orokonui sanctuary, the back road to Port Chalmers and Dunedin, wildlife tours of Otago Peninsula or just exploreing Dunedins many attractions.

North is the coastal route to Karitane for fishing charters, kayak hires and another fantastic beach.

Further up the coast is Moeraki fishing village, the well known "boulders" and a great restaurant.

Within an hour is Qamaru and its historic buildings.

The house has commanding views over Warrington beach and all the way to Taiora heads where you can watch ships comming and going.

Our "crib" is around 10 years old, it has always been used as a holiday bach and is pet friendly, it is simpley furnished, warm and inviting.

  • This is a totally relaxing spot - the house is quiet, private...

    This is a totally relaxing spot - the house is quiet, private and gets all the sunshine too. It's a treat to be lulled to sleep by the waves and woken by the Tui. The beach is glorious to walk along and search for shells. Nearby garden centre cafe is great, too. All in all, a fantastic place to unwind and recharge before heading back to the big smoke.

  • We were very pleased with our stay at Orchid house

    We were very pleased with our stay at Orchid house. Everything was just as the description said. The house was clean and tidy, well appointed. It had everything we needed for our 2 week long stay. It is just a hop, skip and a jump down to Warrington beach, which is an awesome beach. It was just perfect for our kids and us. Many thanks for a wonderful stay. We would highly reccomend this Bach as a must stay at place!
