Escape, Relax and Explore. Welcome to my quaint and quirky macrocarpa cottage set in native bush setting. An abundance of wildlife and fantastic scenery on your doorstep. Beautiful private upstairs bedroom with sea views.
Sharing home with your host Chris and the rest of the family, Roxy the friendly lab/collie and Poutu the fluffy cat.
I offer privacy and a beaut place to unwind.
My home is 16.1km, about a 20 minute drive from Dunedin city, along the scenic winding Portobello Road. Your room is upstairs with gorgeous harbour views, complimented with tea making facilities with a range of teas, coffee, wine, chocolate and an assortment of fruit.
There are beautiful gardens to sit out and relax in, and also a hammock amongst native trees. If you are feeling like a soak after a day of exploring there is an outside bath to be enjoyed, there is nothing better on a starlit night.
Breakfast is served in the dining room but can be enjoyed in your room or in the garden. Breakfast consists of an assortment of NZ made cereals, bread, yoghurt, jams, orange juice, tea and coffee.
There are many local attractions such as Larnach Castle, The Royal Albatross Colony, Penguin Place, yellow eyed penguins, little blue penguins, sea lions, beautiful beaches, stunning views and bush walks.
You will be given your own key to come and go as you please. You are welcome to utilise the kitchen, lounge and dining rooms.

I am a lover of creativity. I am a florist, singer, love gardening, different cultures, reading, movies and muddling around with anything that can be recycled, upcycled.
My daughter and I moved to the Otago Peninsula 5 years ago from Christchurch due to the earthquakes.
I am very grateful to live on the Otago Peninsula, I feel blessed every day.
Living as eco as I can is very important to me. My floristry and art works are an extension of this.
My daughter and I travelled through Asia and Europe for 8 months in 2011. We house sat and couch surfed. We saw amazing things and meet amazing people.
Looking forward to meeting new and interesting people.
