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.

Gas BBQ available on request.

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.

  • The Bach / crib is well equipped and comfortable

    The Bach / crib is well equipped and comfortable. Not everyone will love the outdoor toilet, but the setup is great and the location wins!

  • It was a relaxing wee cottage, it had everything you needed

    It was a relaxing wee cottage, it had everything you needed. It was very quiet and nice to have the beach and caves on the door step. The caves at longbeach were pretty impressive. Port chalmers was a handy spot for a decent coffee and tastey cafes.
