Dunedin, Otago Region, South Island
Margate-by-the-Sea offers a rare opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Otago Peninsula from the privacy of a self-contained 2 bedroom apartment with spectacular harbour views - all to yourselves.
Our central location on the water's edge in Turnbull's Bay is just 20 minutes from Dunedin City. Bird watchers can enjoy wonderful displays of flying, wading & feeding seabirds from the comfort of the spacious living area, queen bedroom or balcony.
The spectacular view is centred on Quarantine Island which can be visited by boat from the University of Otago's Marine Aquarium wharf just 10 minutes drive away, while the surrounding hills frame wider views of the Otago Harbour. If the weather is inclement this ever changing scenery can be enjoyed from the warmth and comfort of the self-contained apartment.
