I have two young children, a 3 month and a 2 year old. We had driven down to Dunedin from Timaru (3 hour drive) and stayed at Callies for a night. I was lucky enough to be able to watch a super rugby game at the stadium that evening but my wife was reluctant for myself to leave her with... More

Bruce and Jenny's place is so wonderful; their door is always open for a nice chat or for a question and they can offer you a lot of great things to see and do on the Otago Peninsula. The room is very cosy and clean, with a superb lakeview, the breakfast is delicious and the region is wonderful. Thank you... More

We loved Callies. Jenny and Bruce are super hosts and have a lovely home in peaceful surroundings in the village of Portobello just a few minutes’ walk from a couple of good restaurants and the local store. Our room (there is only one) was spacious, very clean and comfortable with a marvellous view across the water, whether sitting in the... More

We had a lovely two night stay at Callie's. Bruce and Jenny are just as wonderful as everyone says. We had every type of weather on the peninsula and enjoyed them all. Very cozy and spacious room. Sun came out for us to enjoy the private fleck after a blustery drizzly walk. Elm wildlife tour was terrific too.

My husband and I had a delightful stay with Jenny and Bruce for 3 nights whilst visiting the Otago Peninsular around mid-Nov. Both could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We arrived to a friendly Jenny who immediately offered us a glass of wine after showing us around and an energetic Joey, their cute dog. Our room was very... More

This one-room B&B is truly superb! We landed not just in a lovely area of the South Island but also in the heart of a warm and wonderful family. The place is located about a 5-minute walk from Portobello, where restaurants and the bus stop are located. The room, on the second floor, was large, spotlessly clean, and equipped with... More

It was a stay with a family, not just a Bed and Breakfast. Beautiful surroundings, excellent and homely facilities, to-die-for breakfast served by the owners, we will go back to stay with the Callies every time we visit the South Islands.

How can you review someone who has had more than 40 people telling the world that they are excellent? What more can you add? I think it's suffice to say that when we left Callies, we told Bruce and Jenny "they have a home in Christchurch now and they should drop by our place whenever they are in the Garden... More

The only downside of this stay was that we had to leave after one night - definitely not long enough with this lovely B and B and the amazing Otago Peninsula. I can't believe that I'm a kiwi and have never been here before. Jenny and Bruce definitely made our stay, they're so very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble,... More
