You will love this place for its simplicity and quiet, its all-day sun and the way it lies open to the sky at night. Cosy yet spacious, this 1912 cottage is set in a lush garden, minutes away from the water. Broad Bay is a stunning location within easy reach of Penguin Place, Allen's Beach, the Pyramids & the Royal Albatross colony at Taiaroa Head. Dunedin city with its many cultural offerings is a short drive away. An ideal retreat for women travelers, couples, writers, artists, adventurers.
*Izinyoni is a Zulu word meaning 'Place of birds'. I love the combination of Zulu and Maori language in my peninsula address, the way this brings together my country of origin and the country that called me - Dunedin being my 'turangawaewae', or 'place to stand'.

I will be here to welcome you on arrival and will then make myself scarce so that you can enjoy the peace and quiet. If you need anything during your stay, please feel free to call me on the telephone.

Firewood is stored in the shed outside the kitchen courtyard. During the winter months, I will pack a fire for your arrival and make sure there is ample wood and kindling for you to keep cosy. There is also a heat pump that warms the whole cottage very efficiently.
- The cottage prefers shoes to be left (under cover) at the front door - thank you!

I'm a South African-born artist and writer who traveled to Dunedin in November 1994, the idea being to live and work here for eighteen months. Twenty-three years have passed since then and - well - I'm still here! Truth is, I found my 'turangawaewae' - a Maori word meaning 'my place to stand' - and feel blessed to call Dunedin 'home'. A lively university city on New Zealand's dramatically beautiful South Island, Dunedin was recently awarded International City of Literature status and is surely one of the most picturesque and culturally rich centres in our country. I love living here - love the landscape with its knotty, windswept trees and lichen-encrusted rocks, the quirky birds and native plants. I enjoy traveling to far-away places, too, especially wilderness areas where man's impact on the environment is kept to an absolute minimum. I was fortunate to spend two research seasons in Antarctica (2005 & 2008), the only 'down' side to my time there, this; I get homesick for that place, for the 'music of ice'. Seldom without a notebook or camera, I love walking, music, books and conversation around a table at the end of the day... I very much enjoy meeting people from foreign places and finding the stories we have in common. Airbnb is a great way to network. Hosting visitors - and, too, being hosted by others - has led to many surprising connections and rich conversations. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my home and our beautiful city with you.
