Captain Eady's Lookout, a delightful homestay bed and breakfast, is situated at Portobello on the Otago Peninsula - a short scenic drive from Dunedin.
This character house, hosted by Richard and Ana Good, is situated on a small bluff overlooking Otago Harbour and near the high road to Larnach Castle.
The house was built early last century by Captain Eady, a ferry master, who it is said used to watch from his window the ferries plying the harbour.
Welcome to the World of Captain Eady's
The house is set in a quiet and peaceful location, with a secluded and romantic garden featuring roses, rhododendrons, and New Zealand native plants.
The Harbour side is just below the house, and at low tide Pudding Island is reachable by walking across the beach.
Only a few minutes walk away is Portobello village with café, craft gallery, museum, store and the old ferry wharf.
A little further afield are the Marine Studies Centre Aquarium, Royal Albatross Colony, Larnach Castle, and ocean beaches deserted save for yellow eyed penguins and seals.
You can choose to go kayaking, boating, horse trekking or just walk the Peninsula tracks.
Your generous hosts will happily assist you with your travel plans, day trips, rental cars, bus, train, and tour bookings.
