Fabulous place: spacious room, beautifully clean, comfy bed, delicious breakfasts, pretty covered deck perfect for sitting out. Be sure to make time before breakfast for 45 minute walk to hilltop viewpoint. Wild Dunedin at its best. Jeannie and Peter welcoming hosts.

Peaceful location and nicely furnished room. Bear in mind that the bathroom is a little walk away (as described in the listing). Breakfast provided which was a nice touch. Two very friendly pets welcomed us which was lovely.

Jeannie and her husband are the perfect hosts. Their place is clean and comfortable, plus the bed was amazing. We loved the scones and coffee and meeting the rest of the family - including marmite the sheep. We look forward to staying with them again

I love to cook and get great satisfaction to harvest my own home grown food. We purchased this amazing property in 2015 and I have given myself the challenge of setting up a Permaculture orchard, berry garden and to grow enough vegetables to sell at the gate one day. As a cook I…
