“An a absolutely fabulous place for time out to relax and recharge.”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The lovely old world feeling in the cottage is just perfect for time out from a hectic life, supporting rest and time to reflect and contemplate. The sea is within walking distance for a refreshing walk and cafes just a few minutes away in the car. The ducks called "The Brians" are absolutely adorable, loved watching them coming home every evening with an old wild mallard in tow for their evening feed before retiring to their little hut. And what a pleasure to find the bed was so comfortable. We had fresh eggs and veges from the garden every day, we will be back again. Thank you Jane and Robin for a fantastic time in your amazing cottage.

“a peaceful haven”
Reviewed 4 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A peaceful little haven in the home of the early settlers. Old worldly charm and yet modern comforts too. With chooks and ducks and fresh eggs and veges from the cottage garden , it really is the taste of the good life, with Jane and Rob the perfect hosts. It was delightful to see the birdlife at the albatross colony, beach walks, and a coffee at nearby Portobello.
A treasure of a weekend. I look forward to coming back one day.

“A peaceful beautiful place for some time out to reflect and refresh.”
Reviewed 30 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A beautiful location with comfortable and warm accommodation in an historic cottage with modern ammenities. The owners Jane and Robin were welcoming and happy to share their local knowledge. The cottage is situated away from the main house and surrounded by chooks and gardens. A great hideaway for writing and reflection with coffee shops and beach walks just down the road . I'll be back soon!!

“Charming cottage close to albatross colony”
Reviewed 10 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This is a romantic historic cottage, very charming with the most comfortable beds and a lovely big bathroom. Amazing to see how the pioneers lived (the cottage has all the mod cons though!). Great location - it's very close to the albatross colony. The birdlife on the dramatic coast is stunning, with seagulls trying to land on the steep cliffs and allbatross chicks in the field. There's also penguins and seals which you can see close up.
There are wonderful coastal walks and lots to see and do. The famous Larnach castle is a short drive away. Recommend this as a lovely place to stay on the Otago peninsula.- some cafes nearby with great food.
