The SpaceOur cottage is a lovely place to stay as you'll have complete privacy, a private bathroom, and free covered off-street-parking. In that sense, you've got the best of both worlds - on site hosts to help you figure out your local travel plans, and a private space to retire to as you wish!
Our home is situated five minutes drive from the city centre (i.e. close but not too close!), has views of the harbour, and we're located at the gateway to the Otago Peninsula, famous for Larnach's Castle, the Albatross colony, penguins, seals, stunning beaches, and one of the top 10 cycle roads in the world (according to Lonely Planet!).
Staying with us offers you great views, a comfortable private cottage, relaxed atmosphere, friendly local advice, outdoor spa (also known as a hot tub or jacuzzi), and most importantly a peaceful nights sleep.
The cottage has a queen-sized bed, and is perfect for one or two people. Guest AccessYou'll have access to areas within our house, including the kitchen (breakfast only), dining room, lounges and laundry. We also have a guest fridge available for your use. Interaction with GuestsAs much or as little as you like! We'd be delighted to help you with your travel plans, from local advice for the best things to do in the Dunedin area, to broader advice about your travels in New Zealand. We are very well travelled, and full of useful info!
That said, if you're looking for a private hideaway experience, that's totally cool too!
For the most part, we'll be around during your stay, however, from time to time we do take bookings while we're not at home, and we'll be clear in our communications with you as to our plans. The NeighborhoodDunedin is both under-rated and awesome. Whether you're into culture, architecture, outdoor activities, wildlife, history, a fun nightlife, or a quiet relaxing getaway, Dunedin has it all. We'd say more, but we don't want to give it all away - you've gotta come check it out for yourself!!
In regards to our neighbourhood, Andersons Bay is a relaxed quiet part of town, and we have a few restaurants and other facilities within easy walking distance. Nowhere is very far in Dunedin! Getting AroundOff-street-parking is available in a covered carport adjacent to your cottage - so really handy in regards to handling baggage.
We are very conveniently located for public transport - there is a bus stop just 50 metres from our home!
If you're travelling around the South Island, Dunedin is 5 hours from Christchurch, 3 hours from Queenstown, and 2 hours from Invercargill. If you're arriving from (or heading to) the Dunedin airport, it's an easy 30 minute drive to our home (we recommend the supershuttle, it's way cheaper than a taxi, and doesn't take much longer). We'll provide you with a full description for locating our home when you book with us.
