“Wonderful views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2007

We had 2 nights at Captain Eady`s Lookout and met friends from Canada there. The B&B is actually in Portobello on the Otago peninsula and it is a long, windy road to get there but we loved it. The house has been nicely restored and has a beautiful garden and wonderful views over the water. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms new. Richard welcomed us with glasses of wine and recommended a nice place for dinner. He booked the Elm Wildlife Tour of penguins for us for the next day. We also visited Larnach Castle and Glenfalloch Gardens which are also on the peninsula, so we didn`t have to drive into Dunedin until the next day.
It wouldn`t be so convenient if you were expecting to do most things in Dunedin, but for us it was great.

  • Liked — Comfortable with great views

Take the time when in Dunedin to travel the short distance to Portobello on the Otago Peninsula, this Beautiful B&B was a Gem!
Just before the village of Portobello watch for Captain Eady's sign, this B&B is one of the most welcoming places we encountered on our holiday recently, Beautiful gardens and cosy rooms with fresh flowers from the garden. Magnificent views into Otago Harbour. A short walk to the village was a great 'plus'.
The breakfast was organic and lot's of home made delights, fig jams, stewed plums, Cheeses and warm crusty breads. Hot breakfast on offer also..just Perfect!
Richard and Ana were the perfect hosts, very informative and proud of their beautiful area and home, and so they should...it was wonderful!
Top marks from two very happy Irish Guests.
