          The SpaceThe name says it all. We have spent a good deal of time and resources over the past 8 years rewilding 20Ha of land by removing introduced and highly destructive possums – and other exotic pests - and are now enjoying the resulting regeneration of the native bush and the welcome return of many of our native birds and animals. If you have an interest in the conservation of New Zealand's natural biodiversity and the concepts of rewilding, then Possums' End is the place to stay. At night, weather permitting, we have dark skies that make for outstanding sky watching. Amazing views of the milky way can be seen and the Aurora Australis - the Southern Lights - may put in an appearance. To the naked eye the aurora is often seen as an eerie glow, but with a correctly set DSLR camera beautiful pictures can be taken - see some examples in our gallery taken at Hoopers Inlet, just a kilometer from Possums' End. We have developed an Aurora view point for the use of guests. Possums' End accommodation is a fully self contained single bedroom homestay adjacent to the owner's own house, backing on to regenerating bush. The lounge/diner/kitchenette has stunning views across Otago Harbour and beyond to the Pacific Ocean. The kitchenette is well appointed with a dual hob, microwave and ample crockery and cutlery. A generous bedroom with a queen sized bed leads to an en-suite with underfloor heating and a shower over a large relaxing bath. The utility room has an automatic top loading washing machine and an area to hang wet clothing. A small private outside area allows for al-fresco dining with views over Otago Harbour surrounded by bush and native birdlife. Guest AccessPossums' End is set on 20 hectares of regenerating bush. Guests are welcome to follow the marked track behind Possums' End to the top of the hill. This gives fantastic views over Otago Harbour and the Peninsula. The track is steep and slippery in places, guests take it at their own risk. 2 bicycles are also provided gratis for guests. Interaction with GuestsWe are always keen to meet guests and discuss our conservation work. Our easy to find website gives more information on Possums' End, including things to do.
