The charming Seafarer’s Cottage is a small, private, romantic hideaway nestled within the mature English and native gardens of Rugosa Cottage, a historic home near the heart of Portobello village. Whether your holiday calls for leisure and indulgence or activity and adventure, Seafarer’s Cottage is the ideal home base for your Otago Peninsula experience.
If relaxation is the order of your holiday, spend the morning in your own private garden, curled up with a book and enjoying the native birdsong. Portobello’s famed Happy Hens shop and adjoining playground are just steps away, as are the savoury and sweet eats at Penguin Cafe, Portobello Hotel and Bistro, 1908 Cafe, and Ric's Fish and Chips. The well-stocked Portobello Store, just a two-minute stroll away, will ensure you have all the supplies you need for your holiday. Or check out our museum, art gallery, and shops like NZ Greenstone and Art, which feature the work of local artisans.
If your Peninsula holiday calls for sightseeing, Seafarer’s Cottage is a convenient drive to the Albatross Colony, Penguin Place, Larnach Castle, Allan's Beach, Victory Beach, Sandfly Bay, Sandy Mount, Harbour Cone, and so many more beautiful attractions in the surrounding area.
