Company Bay is a suburb of Dunedin, New Zealand, located on the Otago Peninsula between Macandrew Bay and Broad Bay. Access to surrounding suburbs and the centre of the city is via Portobello Road, which skirts the edge of Otago Harbour. A smaller, winding road ascends from the bay, linking with the peninsula's ridge road (Highcliff Road) close to Larnach Castle at Pukehiki.

Geography[edit]

The suburb of Company Bay extends north-east from Macandrew Bay, an indentation along the Otago Harbour. The suburb encompasses the Bay and surrounding areas - from mission cove, extending into the hills and around to grassy point. Company Bay is a 20-minute drive from Dunedin city centre. In 2013 Company Bay had a population of 336.

Houses and architecture[edit]

Company Bay is characteristic for its large modern and contemporary homes built on lifestyle blocks.

Company Bay is primarily a semi-rural residential suburb. Home to many new developments; such as mission cove, construction has swelled over the past 10 years. Homes in the surrounding hills such as Grassy Point are built on larger lifestyle blocks, in both modern and traditional styles. The 2006 census revealed Company Bay to be the wealthiest suburbs in Dunedin by household income.[1]
