Near to our home in Waitati is the Orokonui Ecosanctuary, Silverpeaks walking tracks, very beautiful beaches where we often go for nude walks and skinny dips. Just 20 minutes drive into Dunedin City. This is a genuine homestay being home to ourselves, extended family and long term guests. There is also a cat and a small dog. Waitati has been associated with freedom and innovation for a long time and this continues with the work of the Blueskin Bay Resiliant Communities trust and many community activities. Guest AccessThe guest wing opens onto a large sunny private courtyard with a spa pool and guests are welcome to wander around the rest of the 3 acres, mostly bordered by farmland. There are two sitting rooms, a dining room, a nice wee sunroom to relax in and a massage room. The grounds aren't completely private but the neighbors have been accepting of our naturist lifestyle.

The SpaceWe believe we have one of the most beautiful spots on the Otago Coastline (and possibly the world!) and we love to share it with people. The cottage is the original maid's quarters and still retains much of the original character whilst having the convenience of a bathroom and small kitchen added. We can comfortably accommodate 2 adults in the queen size bed and it is possible to put a king single bed in the living space if required. Guest AccessFeel free to go for a walk around our little lifestyle farm: perhaps a stroll down to the ocean, a wander past the sheep or chickens or explore the 1875 barn with an interesting collection of old farming and whaling equipment. Sit and enjoy the view and the bird song in the beautiful gardens. Interaction with GuestsWe love meeting new people, hearing their stories and helping them make the most of their time in the area. Our family house is situated close to the accommodation and the outside areas are shared. However, we are also very happy to give you all the space you need to enjoy your time in our little slice of paradise. From experience, you are unlikely to hear us as the buildings are separate. The NeighborhoodThere are many beautiful short walks in the area as well as longer walks for those keen on getting out and about. We have several stunning beaches nearby that are often deserted except for the local wildlife. We are a short (20 minute) drive from the centre of Dunedin. Getting AroundYour own transport is definitely the most convenient way to get around and we have plenty of parking. There is a bus service from Dunedin but it only runs 3 times a day on weekdays and stops 30 minutes walk from our property. Other Things to NoteWarrington does not have any shops or restaurants. The nearest supermarket and cafes/restaurants are in Dunedin. There is a small corner store 8 minutes away in Waitati and another in the opposite direction in Karitane but these have a limited range of grocery items. There is also a cafe in Waitati but it is not open for dinner. We are happy to provide dinner at a reasonable price (just covering costs) if you would find that helpful.

The SpaceSmall Self-contained House The cedar shingled cottage, nestled in one acre of trees, is one of the original holiday houses ("cribs") built in Warrington during the mid twentieth century.

The living room is lined with original plywood. In keeping with the character of the design a recent renovation has been completed this includes a double glazed master bedroom which is airy and light plus a new bathroom and modernised kitchen.

Interaction with GuestsHappy to provide local knowledge & info. The NeighborhoodCedar Cottage in Warrington is the perfect place for a break from the city or as a base to explore Dunedin, the Otago Peninsula and surrounding coast. The charm of this small unspoilt seaside village continues to offer the perfect spot to unwind. Blueskin Bay, a 200m walk from the gate, provides access to the beach at low tide, or you can forage for mussels and cockles in the shallows of the channel in the Bay. Warrington Beach, regarded as one of the safest in the region, is a short walk and great for a gentle stroll or run (if you are lucky you may see dolphins in or just beyond the surf). Within short driving distance are Orokonui Eco Sanctuary, Karitane beach and Dunedin. Or for a day trip up the coast, Riverstone Cafe or Fleurs Place, are well known for their gastronomic delights. If you like more vigorous activities, the Coast Road return trip to Karitane is a challenging hilly ride for cyclist. Or the nearby Church Road and Mountain Track Road loop through the Silver Peaks is demanding circuit for mountain bikers. There are a number of hikes into the Silver Peaks which you can access via a short drive. Getting Around20 mins from Dunedin via the main road, or 30 mins via the Port Chalmers peninsula scenic road. Easy to find off the main road. Tips: Get your petrol in Dunedin or Karitane- sorry no petrol in Warrington. Also would pay to visit supermarket in town to get supplies, as limited and more expensive stores at 'On the Spot' local store in Waitati.

            Blueskin cottage has a panoramic view over the estuary, in the evening if its very still over the water its particularly stunning. The cottage is surrounded in a variety of native plants that attract the large wood pigeons and bellbirds. There is always the sound of birds. Two km's away is the surf patrolled Warrington beach, there is a lovely walk to the end of the spit which ends at the mouth of the estuary a return walk can be taken on the inside of the spit. When the tide is low enough you can collect clams (cockles) from the beds either side of the shallow channel which is nearest to the cottage. There is a children's park next to the domain area behind the beach on the spit, good for picnics. In the summer if the tide is coming in at the end of the day the water will warm up over the sand so paddling or swimming is recommended. A few minutes away is Blueskin nursery which has an great cafe with excellent food and of course lots plants and handicrafts.
