I stayed here for two days having decided at the last minute to change my plans and visit the Otago Peninsula. I got the details in the accommodation book at the cafe in Portobello. The room was very comfortable quite large with space for a sitting room and an en suite. The interior was all wood and so had the... More

Lovely location, great room with a balcony and awesome views. This was a great place to stay for our last minute Easter break. Jenny and Bruce are a fun couple, with lots of ideas on how to make the most of your stay on the Penninsula and in Dunedin. They are very happy to share their home and nothing is... More

Though travelling NZ with a camper (Dec 23rd, 2013 - Jan 13th, 2014), we preferred to stay at nice B&B locations. This was mainly because we wanted to get a feeling of how life would be in this beautiful country outside of the touristic attractions. We especially enjoyed our stay at 'Callies' - clearly one of the "B&B highlights" of... More

We had a perfect stay at Jenny's and Bruce's B&B. They are so likeable! :-) The Otago Peninsula is great: we did kayaking next to a seal, standing next to huge sleeping see lions, watching penguins... Thank you! Meike & Slaven

Thank you both for your lovely review of your stay with us. There are certainly lots of things to see and do on the Otago Peninsula and we enjoy sharing our little corner of the world with our guests. Warm regards, Jenny and Bruce. More

We finished the penguin trip very late and found Callies B&B with coincidence when driving back to city. And we are so lucky since the place is very nice and comfortable room like your own place, Jenny and Bruce are really nice and helpful, treat us as family member, showed us photos and play with lovely Dog - Joey.

Spent two nights with Jenny and Bruce, they are wonderful people and the B and B set-up is perfect! The ensuite is separate from the rest of the house, quiet and cozy with a nice TV, bathroom, and beautiful view off a private deck. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. Breakfast is a... More

We recently had the opportunity to stay on the Otago Peninsula at Callies. This is a wonderful place with fantastic owners. They looked after our every need and took great care to look after all the little extras that made our stay so special. Highly Recommend!!

What a fabulous place to end our stay in NZ! We had 2 excellent nights at Callies at the end of February, and wished we could have stayed longer. Jenny and Bruce were fantastic hosts, and we were treated like old friends, not visitors. The room was large and very comfortable, the balcony had lovely views of the bay, and... More

We had a fabulous 2 night stay at Jenny and Bruce's accommodation. The bedroom upstairs is nice and large with a sitting area and also has a balcony. Our hosts recommended some scenic rides (we were on motorbike) and Jenny drove us in her car to Albatross Centre (we did not have enough petrol to get back to town otherwise)... More

Bruce and Jenny were great hosts. Lots of tips on wildlife as Bruce has helped at the Albatross Centre, the breakfast was really good. It was particularly nice that Bruce and Jenny sat with us at breakfast so we could chat at leisure. The bedroom was fine. If Otago was closer to Europe we'd go back like a shot! Stunning... More
