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
We found Maria & Mikes place and family, including the dog a delight to spend our brief time with.
Very welcoming and friendly and the breakfasts were just fantastic.
We would thoroughly recommend this stay to anyone.
Maria and Miriam were just great hostesses! They were helpful in giving advice, directions, had great suggestions for restaurants, and were very personable.
We had some good talks late into the evening.
The Airbnb room is very nice and roomy and the shared bath no problem at all.
They are in a grand location on the Otago Peninsula but close enough to downtown to be perfect.
We stayed with Maria and her daughters for two nights. They were very kind and welcoming, even let us a ride with them to central dunedin when the bus didn't show up for us! Breakfast was very good in the mornings. The room was nice, small refrigerator in it was a bonus for us, bathroom was okay...little awkward sharing it with everyone in in the home. Room was clean but the rest of the house/shared areas were a bit untidy for us.
We really enjoyed staying with Maria and her daughters. They have a nice home away from the busy city. They were very welcoming and warm. The room we stayed in was clean and tidy. The only issue was that there is only one bathroom to be shared with the entire household. That really brought back childhood memories!! However, Maria said she is looking into adding another bathroom. If that was done, I would definitely recommend staying with her.
It was pleasure to meet Maria, Anna and Miriam and learn more about life in New Zealand. We did feel like staying at friends house. I would recommend staying at Home style welcome to guests who travel to Dunedin by car as it is not located very close to the city center.
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!
