Chy-an-Dowr is a character house and was originally built as a general store in 1915. Rosemary Retreat is a self contained apartment located on the garden side at the back of Chy-an-Dowr and is located in a private setting. Rosemary Retreat has a sitting room with a sofa bed, TV, DVD player, books and magazines; a bedroom with king-size bed; bathroom with shower over bath and a kitchen with an Induction Hot Plate, an oven, microwave, toaster, fridge/freezer etc. French doors open to a garden patio behind the rosemary hedge. In summer enjoy views of the rose garden from the lounge and patio. The Canterbury suite is a guest apartment upstairs at the front of our house and has panoramic views across the harbour. The Canterbury suite covers the entire top floor and has two bedrooms, one ensuite bathroom with a shower and one separate bathroom with a bath and shower, a sitting room and a sunroom. There is no kitchen, but there is a microwave, toaster, kettle and a coffee maker in the sitting room. The staircase to upstairs is quite steep, so not suitable for guests with mobility problems. If requested breakfast is provided in the rooms to enjoy at your convenience.
Welcome to Rosemary Retreat and the Canterbury suite at Chy-an-Dowr. In 1981 we emigrated from the Netherlands and in 1993 we started our B&B Chy-an-Dowr on the beautiful Otago Peninsula. We enjoy welcoming guests from all over the world to our lovely location.
The Otago Peninsula is well known for the Royal Albatross Colony, Yellow-eyed Penguins, Little Blue Penguins, seals and sea lions. There are many walkways, secluded beaches and wonderful views. Larnach Castle and Glenfalloch Gardens are nearby.
