About Jane Clutha
We are a couple with some wonderful decades of living behind us and have found each other in later life. Robin is English and met Jane, a Kiwi, while visiting New Zealand. We have created a blissful little oasis which we would like to share with you. The garden is our joy and you are welcome to sit and enjoy it in the unspoilt moonlight or bask in the midday sun, whichever you prefer! It is private and very protected. The flowers and veges are yours to share with us too. Inside you will find modern appliances and warmth you will expect. But you will also experience the nostalgia of yesteryear with the original flooring, walls, and some fittings. We even have two bedrooms upstairs in the loft. Perhaps a large family lived here in the 1860s. We don't know exactly but its fun pretending.
Jane Clutha purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Jane Clutha chose Dunedin
We loved this property from the moment we first saw it. It has a very beautiful setting with the garden in front and hens to the back. Two front windows on either side of a central front door give it that classic welcoming look! And it has been a huge amount of fun to work on it bringing it up to a standard for you to enjoy. It's now snug and warm and yet can still show us the old ways that families lived. You can easily imagine all who lived here before.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lovely coastal walks, spectacular night sky viewing, close to Larnach Castle and all the sights of iconic Otago Peninsula. The wildlife centre of Otago with penguins, Albatross colony, seals, sealions, occasional whales and dolphins, birdlife.

We had a lovely cozy stay despite winter, a windstorm, and power outage! We’d definitely stay again. Great location. Warm inviting hosts.

Thank you Ruth, it was lovely to have you stay and we'd love to see you back
Beautifully presented historic cottage. Super hospitable hosts.
Set in the countryside, with a charming cottage garden, this cottage was a peaceful place for our extended family to relax and play. It is well appointed, with period details, very comfortable beds and a large bathroom.The children loved the attic bedrooms and enjoyed meeting the ducklings and chickens. Jane and Robin were very friendly and hospitable hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unique place and warmly recommend it.
Thank you Joanne. Your family was a total pleasure to host. We love to help when families get together! You were all a pleasure to have in the Portobello Settlers Cottage and we do appreciate your kind comments. It was lovely to hear about your garden too and we are impressed with what you have at home. The children were a joy to have around, we always love seeing the faces when little ones visit our animals too.
Picture perfect cottage and garden.
We loved the cottage, renovated so beautifully, really cozy. Gorgeous garden, especially loved the chooks.
Perfect spot for touring the Peninsula, especially the Royal Albatross Centre.
Thanks for your kind and generous comments. We do like to make the cottage cosy and comfortable for our guests. We're pleased it worked so well for you as we are so close to the albatrosses. Hopefully you had a good viewing.
