A cosy retreat on a beautiful lagoon, with private bathroom & kitchenette
I am lucky to live next to a beautiful wildlife reserve with my husband and daughter. We are excited to share our slice of paradise with visitors so they can enjoy it too. I love good food, traveling and gardening. I am passionate about the part of New Zealand that we live in, being born and bred here. I have plenty of insider's tips for Dunedin and the local area!

It’s a kind of magic...
Situated down a long gravel driveway is sweet bliss. A place to take a deep breath and exhale while overlooking the most tranquil setting and only 30 minutes away from Dunedin.
The accommodation was everything you could wish for and the bed was super comfy, had the best night sleep.
Bathroom and kitchen was well appointed and breakfast was delicious and a great start to the day. Fabulous coffee and really yummy muesli.
Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Thanks so much for a comfortable and sublime place to unwind.
We loved staying here. Everything was perfect about the place, sheep wagon, kitchen and bath. We especially enjoyed being in close proximity to so many different kinds of birds and sea life. The beach was long and beautiful. A perfect way to end our epic journey to a remote beach on Stewart Island. Also so very happy we could make it for dinner at Fleurs Place in Moeraki. Loved seeing the Spoonbills.
A very nice place to stay if you appreciate a water view and being able to observe birds from close quarters.
Some difficulty finding the place as communication was by email on the day of arrival and we don't have roaming Internet access.
After we found we had a very pleasant stay.
I’m glad you enjoyed your time at The Bird Hide. I’m sorry if the arrival and address information was unclear. If you have suggestions on how this could be improved (other than the timing mentioned) please do let me know.
Thank you for staying!
Beautiful little hideaway
Lovely quaint little cottage, with Fanta views across the lake at sunrise. Beautifully presented. Would definitely stay again.
Lagoon is a best kept local treasure
Delightful location: a true hidden gem. Without staying at the Birdhide we would have not realized the secluded haven on the lagoon. The walking track around the lagoon was an easy flat walk and a great way to take in the variety of native birds in their habitat.
As for the accommodations, the queen bed was comfy and clean and the sunrise over the mountain was the best alarm clock. A heater was available and along with the quaint log burner it was more than adequate to keep away the chill of spring. The well maintained kitchen and bathroom were a short walk away and although tucked into the main home the access and use remained private with a little outdoor courtyard created between the spaces. The birdhide had all the necessities of true kiwi hospitality while offering a secluded retreat. We found the resident chicken to be a curious and friendly host!!! Thanks for the lovely stay.
