Located at the head of Otago Harbour, Dunedin is a beautiful historic city surrounded by rugged landscapes.
Our 1920's Californian style villa is the perfect location for you to base yourself, while you explore Dunedin and its surrounding area.
Close to the city, our comfortable home has two spacious
family sized rooms available. The larger room has a small fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.
There is lots to see and do in and around Dunedin. While you are here, you might like to visit Dunedin's museum which hosts a tropical rainforest. If you are into surfing, the St Clair beach is for you. A nice outing, for rainy days with the family, is a visit to the Cadbury Factory in town. Otago Peninsula, with the only land based Royal Albatross colony is a wonderful experience whether by land or sea.
If you are arriving by car, off street parking is available. Wireless Internet is also available for your use. The local bus to town stops just metres from our gate!
Family and Child Friendly
Suitable for Events
This is a special place with special people. We enjoyed every moment with Maria and her family. Good conversation and good sharing...you can't ask for more.
Dear Maria, Anna and Miriam!
It was a pleasure to be your guests. My children liked the toy corner as well as your pets and the trampolin in your garden. Many thanks to all 3 of you for the very cosy stay. You are very lovely hosts, helpful and open-minded.
Alexandra and family
My family had a warm and wonderful stay at Maria & Mike's home. Maria and her daughter Mariam prepared a very comfortable room for us and my 4yr boy told me he slept quite good for the 2 nights. The location is quite good, near to the CBD and very convenient to everywhere. We were very lucky that we saw the yellow eyed penguin at sandfly bay after the half day train trip! Sincere thanks to Maria and Mariam!
Maria has a very comfortable home that is located close to the city CBD. Although our stay was brief, Maria was extremely friendly and hospitable. She assisted us in many ways, which enhanced our experience in staying with her. Thank you very much for welcoming us into your home!
Maria and her family gave us a very warm welcome and made us really feel at home. The room is very nice, clean, with a small fridge and very comfortable bed. The breakfast is very good and they are always very helpful, generouse and we had a very good time together chating and playing with the friendliest dog in the world, Scruffy!
Thank you to Maria and her two daughters Anna and Mariam who welcomed us so lovely. We were 4 girls and had a very comfortable room to sleep in and we all are still talking about that yummy breakfast we got which was amazing after all that traveling and plain backpacker breakfasts!
I have not met Maria and Mike in person, but my family had a very pleasant experience staying in their house in Dunedin. This place is definitely recommended!
Very welcoming family, comfortable room and great breakfast.
Maria was an excellent hostess! (Mike was out of town so we didn't get to meet him) Maria gave us some great things to do in Dunedin, helped us plan out our drive, made tea and snacks on our arrival and breakfast in the morning, and even did our laundry for us while we were out! The house is beautiful and secluded in a garden. It's well worth it to stay with Maria and mike if you're planning a trip to Dunedin.
Maria and her daughters were very kind and made us feel warm & welcome. I particularly like their positive life attitudes and enjoyed chatting with them. The house is the first one built on the street with special traditional style. We enjoyed staying here and would like to recommend it to all others!
