Otago Vacation Rentals

Endangered and rare native species make their home at the Orokonui Ecosanctuary which is located in the hills above Blueskin Bay, and can be reached by driving 15 minutes north of Dunedin. You can feel at home in comfortable vacation rental accommodations. Staying in a privately-owned accommodation is a welcomed alternative to booking a hotel for your holiday lodging. The Otago region can be found close to the bottom of South Island. World-class vineyards are cultivated here. There are beautiful surprises. Walk among wild seals; kayak in semi-submersed caves and jet-ski down rivers. The natural beauty of Otago includes white-sand beaches and open plains, forests and mountains – flat-topped block mountains in eastern and central Otago, and the glacier-sculpted Otago Alps in the far west.

The harbour city of Dunedin has been called the Edinburgh of the South. This location has a rich Maori heritage. When you visit the Tangata Whenua gallery within the Otago Museum, you can be up close to the beautifully-crafted Te Paranihi waka – a 17 metre canoe - and other treasured objects crafted from greenstone, whale ivory and wood. The Maori people made their sea journey from Hawaiki – an island or group of Polynesian islands - about 1000 years ago to Aotearoa, the Land of the Long White Cloud. The first European to see New Zealand was a Dutchman, Abel Tasman. The Catlins area of Otago is a place of shipwrecks and caves. Small towns dot the Catlins coastline and you can see plenty of waterfalls and deserted beaches as you explore this area. Within a 15-minute walk, you can visit the Cathedral caves during low tide.
