Lovely cottage in beautiful Portobello

Family-friendly vacation home in Dunedin
Welcome to WeeksEnd Cottage! This warm and comfortable house will sleep up to 5 people and is located right in the heart of Portobello. Extremely spacious for a 2 bedroom house. Hotel quality bed linen and towels. It features a good sized, full kitchen and open plan dining and living area. Bathroom with separate toilet and a laundry.

Portobello is only a 20 minute drive on the low road beside the stunning Otago Harbour from Dunedin or take the high road and see both sides of the spectacular Otago Peninsula. Handy for a drive into town for the events at Forsyth Barr Stadium or many other attractions.

Enjoy local walks or explore the Peninsula beaches for wildlife, including penguins, seals and sea-lions. Local attractions include Larnach Castle, the Royal Albatross colony at Taiaroa Head, Penguin Place and Nature's Wonders to name a few. Walk to the jetty to pick up the Port to Port Ferry over to Port Chalmers or enjoy a wonderful wildlife trip to the entrance of the harbour.
After a long day exploring the Peninsula, park the car at the house and walk to the Portobello Hotel or 1908 Cafe for dinner. Alternatively, visit the Dunedin Farmer's market at the Dunedin Railway Station, to purchase the local ingredients for your romantic, home-cooked evening meal. Perhaps you fancy fish and chips from the award winning Ric's Galley takeaway or even try to catch a salmon from the harbour.

Dim the lights and settle down in front of the wood burner for a romantic evening and make plans for your next Otago Peninsula adventure. A BBQ will be available in the summer months. A number of interesting books, games and DVDs are available for you to use.

Your hosts Jenny and Rob live in the Villa next door and will leave you to your own devices. We are happy to be contacted should you have any questions or need tips about how to spend your time here.

Portabello cottage
My wife and I really enjoyed three nights in this nice cottage. We did the Elm tour , getting picked up just around the corner and also walked to Allen’s beach to see sea lions and seals. Jenny and her husband Rob are genuinely nice people and we felt very comfortable here.

5/5 Excellent

Great house, hosts, and location.
The house was clean,lots of room, with a good kitchen and had everything we needed for our stay. Our hosts are wonderful people and were always helpful if we had a question or problem especially when my wife hurt her foot hiking and needed to see a doctor. We enjoyed our stay and if your want to see the fabulous bird life on the Otago Peninsula this is a great place to stay. We give this home our highest recommendation.
