The cottage is about halfway along the peninsula. It is cosy & welcoming with very good sized rooms & is well equipped- just as shown in the pictures! The owners kept in contact & provided help quickly when I contacted them before our visit with questions regarding the local area. We had our own car which enabled us to visit Dunedin city & Larnach Castle.
Our 4 night stay at Kowhai Cottage suited us perfectly as we were a week in to our touring holiday. We cooked our own meals, caught up with laundry and ironing and felt thoroughly relaxed and 'at home' in this beautifully furnished and very comfortable accommodation. Everything that we needed was there, plus lots of extras. Owner Mary came to the house to greet us personally, and was very welcoming and helpful.
The views are lovely, and there are plenty of things to do in Dunedin and on the peninsular. A visit to Larnach Castle (just 10 mins drive up the road) is a must..... absolutely beautiful house and gardens, and the views are magnificent from the road to and from the castle as well.. We also enjoyed a trip to see the wildlife at Taiaroa Head and a day in Dunedin itself.
It was aIl so enjoyable, we would stay again in a flash!
