About this listing

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Other things to note

Our beaches are our best kept secret, dramatic and quite often deserted. Clean and rubbish free, we love them!

It was such a lovely stay. We only regret one thing and that's the fact we couldn't stay longer because we had booked a hotel the next night in mount cook ;). It was so lovely talking with these people. They are so kind, you feel really at home. The bedroom with the bathroom is just perfect. We really enjoyed staying with them and recommend it to everyone who wants to stay in Dunedin near to the lovely yelloweyed and little blue pinguïn.

You can't beat the views from the front porch at Deborah's place! Looking right onto the water is gorgeous. The bedroom was a good size, very clean, with its own bathroom with shower. The internet password didn't work for me, but that may have been my own doing. Otherwise the home was clean, fairly easy to find, but do mind when she says the driveway is steep as it really is. Also, if you don't know Dunedin, Portabello Road is very curvy and doesn't have a guard rail next to the water so driving can be slow. It was a perfect place to stay after seeing the penguins at the end of the peninsula late at night, and even more lovely to have breakfast on the deck in the morning. Deborah was easy to communicate with and even had neighbors check in when I first arrived. A great place!

Suffice it to say that this was our second time staying with Deborah and Alistair - we were fortunate to come back to New Zealand three years after our first time and stay at this lovely house again. Wonderful hosts, and the room is everything you need - comfortable, clean, private, and relaxed. The garden and its delicious treasures is another bonus.

The pictures only show 1/10 loveliness of the house! Every window with a different view! Cozy, comfort as home. We arrived the house about 8pm, and immediately Alister and Deborah came out and greet us. They gave us warm welcome, great info. about city. Someday we came back really late, Ms. Deborah was there waiting for us. We were even invited for a drink on our last night. Ms. Deborah and Mr. Alister are frequent travelers themselves. I guess that's why they know so well about what you are looking for away from home. Great time in Dunedin! Lucky that we chose this house and it is located on the peninsula!
