Peaceful piece of paradise in Portobello!
We only stayed one night in this fabulous boutique motel (because Dunedin was booked up because of Elton John!) but wish it could have been longer! The studio accommodation is spacious, beautifully decorated and well-equipped with a balcony overlooking stunning scenery. The owners are lovely and thanks to their advice we enjoyed a truly magical wildlife boat trip with a local tour company. Thanks, Kate and Terence from Edinburgh

Beautiful bush and harbour view
Love the studio. Great view over bush and bowling club to the harbour. Great setup in the room and nicely decorated. We will definitely be back.

Perfect cottage!
My one night stay turned into two because of this amazing place! An updated cozy cottage with everything you could need... including two fabulous hosts in Greg and Jo. Excellent decor with little touches including the matching chairs and blankets to enjoy the view! Greg and Jo have done a wonderful job with the landscaping as well which adds to the character. Their bird feeder attracts a vast number of visitors just outside Cottage #1 as well!

Lovely, can't wait to stay again!
A one-night stay to attend an event on the Otago Peninsula. My "Comfort studio" was excellent, surprisingly spacious, clean, warm and well-appointed. \the view over the bay was beautiful too. I didn't need to cook but if I had done, there was a microwave, electric fry pan and two-plate electric hob as well as a kettle and toaster.

Portobello Perfect
Stayed two nights in a Studio King Cottage which had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. Our cottage was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and quiet. The King bed was probably the most comfortable on our two week trip of NZ. The shower had great pressure plus heated lights and towel warmer. The kitchenette was well equipped. It even had a teapot for tea lovers like myself. Bonus! Enjoyed relaxing in the two stylish lounge chairs, taking in the harbour views and birds in the garden. The location was great as a jumping off point of the Otago Peninsula’s attractions. The pub at the end of the driveway was also convenient. Good counter meals. Recommend.

Really lovely place in great little town
Lovely setting on the Otago Peninsula that is a great alternative to staying in busy Dunedin. We were in a studio cottage facing the water. The place is perfectly appointed with a really well equipped kitchen. And a really comfy bed. It is stocked with coffee, milk, tea, sugar, and more - and shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom. I only regret that we didn’t have more time in this fabulous accommodation. Don’t hesitate to book here.

This is a beautiful group of cottages in Portobello. The gardens are lovely and waking to the sound of chirping birds was a delight. While a challenge to get to, due to some current road work, it is close to the albatross and penguins and some decent restaurants.

Excellent view out to the harbour Best place to s
Best place to stay in Otago Peninsula. I stayed for 2 nights as my base for Eco-tourist tours in the area. Very stylish interior design. Highly recommended.

Excellent place - would stay again!
Great location with excellent views of the sound. Quiet location away from Dunedin and on the road to the penguin colony. The owners are fantastic and make you feel right at home.
