About This Listing
Our house is situated on the beautiful, and sometimes dramatic Otago Peninsula. It is a ten minute drive from the Dunedin CBD and enjoys a rural aspect but has the advantage of being close to the city. It’s a large family home that I Deborah share with my husband Alistair. We would like the opportunity to share our house with travellers, but also earn extra income to travel more ourselves.
I have worked in the Tourism business in Dunedin for twenty years, and have a wealth of knowledge of our region, which we would love to share.
We have made two bedrooms available to air bnb guests, the rooms share a modern en suite.
We will only rent both bedrooms out if the guests know one and other (i.e. friends or family), other wise you have the bathroom to your selves.
The rates will be based on the number of people and the number of rooms/beds you want to use. One bedroom (1 or 2 people) is NZ$120.00/ night, second room is priced at the nightly rate of NZ$120.00
We provide a continental breakfast to our guests.
We are happy for our guests to make full use of the kitchen and laundry during their stay with us.
We also like our guests to make full use of the living area's and our garden.
We have a reasonable vegetable garden which we are happy for our visitors to help themselves to.
Interaction with Guests
We try to be at home if possible to greet our guests, sometimes this is not possible as we both work.
We try to be as helpful as possible without being too invasive.
The harbour view and the rural aspect enhanced by the fact it is just 10 minutes into the CBD.
When visiting Dunedin the two things you need to see are our striking heritage buildings and our unique wildlife.
We have a bus stop at the bottom of our driveway.
I recommend if you want to explore the peninsula renting a car is the preferable option.
Other Things to Note
Our beaches are our best kept secret, dramatic and quite often deserted. Clean and rubbish free, we love them!
No smoking inside
Deb and Alistair were excellent hosts, who went out of their way to make us feel welcome, comfortable and at home. They obviously like having guests and were more than helpful with information about Dunedin's attractions etc. The accommodation and breakfast was very good and we would highly recommend anyone to stay there.
Fantastic location on the Otago peninsula. Close to town and 10 minutes to Larnach Castle, you can't get a better spot. It looks out over the water and Dunedin. We loved the room and the bathroom. Looks like new! The beds were great. The whole place felt luxurious. The breakfast was great also. Thanks so much Deborah and Alistair!
Portobello B&B is located in an absolutely stunning setting on the Otago Peninsula, an easy 10-minute drive from the center of Dunedin. The Rose room was very comfortable and quiet with only sheep as our neighbors. Best of all, Deb and Alistair were the most engaging hosts of our NZ trip. Thank you for a lovely stay, we look forward to the next time ;).
Deborah and Alistair were just perfect. Very nice and warm people who make you feel like home. They share their amazing home with their guests like they were family members. We can just recommend to stay at their place. The location is very convenient in the middle between Dunedin and the Albatross Center. Deborah did give us good support in planning our activities.
Felt comfortable from the moment we arrived. Deb and Alistair have a lovely home on the shore of Otago Bay, our room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was modern and well appointed. The location was excellent for exploring the Peninsula attractions (penguins, Castle, albatrosses), and visiting Allan's Beach was a particular treat.
But the real highlight of our stay was our hosts. We connected with them quickly, and we enjoyed many conversations together. They were so relaxed and welcoming that we felt as though we were in our own home. One of our most enjoyable BandB stays ever!
