Welcome to Fantail Lodge

Self-contained accommodation in Dunedin, New Zealand

At Fantail Lodge we welcome you to our two environmentally-friendly cottages which are tucked away amongst the trees in our lush harbourside garden. The accommodation is located on the Otago Peninsula, in Dunedin. The cottages are great for couples but we can also accommodate small families. Both cottages have private bathrooms and fully equipped kitchens making them comfortable and homely for short and long stays. Continental breakfast hampers can be ordered if required.

In Broad Bay we are surrounded by walking tracks, beaches, bays and islands to be explored on foot, bicycle or kayak.  There is a small swimming beach and fishing pier right across the road. Additionally there are several restaurants, cafes, craft shops and galleries along the peninsula.

Dunedin’s city centre as well as all the wildlife and attractions of the Otago Peninsula are a short drive from Fantail Lodge: Larnach Castle, the Royal Albatross Centre, penguins, fur seals, sea lions and secluded beaches.

We, Tessa and Vic, have been welcoming guests to our accommodation in Dunedin for over 20 years. Alongside running the cottages, we volunteer with local conversation projects and have worked for years as an albatross tour guide (Vic) and the local aquarium manager (Tessa). We are always happy to share recommendations regarding local attractions and wildlife to make your stay extra special.
