Staying in Harwood's Harbourside Hideaway was a great experience. It is quiet and peaceful with a wonderful view. There is so much to explore in the neighbourhood and going to see the blue penguins at night was a high light without a long journey back to Dunedin. The house had plenty of room for 5 of us, the 7 year old loved the fireplace and roasting marshmallows over the embers. He even helped sweeping out the ashes so we could make another fire. it wasn't cold when we stayed there, we just lit the fire for the experience and roasted marshmallows. The house was clean and tidy, had a few issues with the wiring and had to ask for help for how to use the oven. I wrote down some instructions for future users of the oven. that was minor. if you looking for a nice quiet place to stay out of town while in Dunedin, then i would recommend this house. We took the high road to Dunedin a few times but decided that the coastal road was safer.
Everything was perfect with the house: charming, comfortable, everything one could need, beautiful garden. The house was immaculate. The owners are clearly paying attention to every detail and care about providing the best experience for their guests. We would rate more than 5 stars if possible.
