Dunedin is both under-rated and awesome. Whether you're into culture, architecture, outdoor activities, wildlife, history, a fun nightlife, or a quiet relaxing getaway, Dunedin has it all. I'd say more, but I don't want to give it all away - you've gotta come check it out for yourself!!
If you're travelling around the South Island, Dunedin is 5 hours from Christchurch, 3 hours from Queenstown, and 2 hours from Invercargill. If you're arriving from (or heading to) the Dunedin airport, it's an easy 30 minute drive to our home (we recommend the supershuttle, it's way cheaper than a taxi, and doesn't take much longer).
We look forward to meeting you soon!!

Steve and Elke are fantastic hosts!! Very very friendly, helpful and you can ask them whatever you want to know, you'll definitely get a great answer! They'll help you planing your trips and try to explain you the bus timetable as well, which isn't easy :D One morning I had to get to the city centre so Steve picked me up very early on a sunday morning and took me there. Just to give an example of there friendliness. The room was very clean (just everything in the house) and everythink was like in their discription.
You want to stay in Dunedin for a few nights? This is the right address!
Wish you all the best in the future with everything,
We spent a quick 2 nights at Steve and Elkes. They were wonderfully helpful and easy to talk to. The house was was very inviting and comfortable. We were able to do laundry and make ourselves at home. You won't regret booking here!

Steve's bed and breakfasts is convenient to all parts of town but especially to the Otago peninsula. Steven is a most helpful and knowledgeable host going out of his way to help. The area is in a peaceful neighborhood and all the rooms are clean and tidy. We would definitely stay there again.
