About this listing
Our home is quiet, private and a great place to relax. Our room has space for one or two people, a shared bathroom, and off street parking. We're located at the start of the peninsula, five minutes drive from central Dunedin. See you soon!
We enjoy hosting fun worldly travellers in our wonderful home.
Our home is situated 10 mins drive from the city centre (i.e. close but not too close!) and directly at the gateway to the Otago Peninsula, famous for Larnach's Castle, the Albatross colony, penguins, seals, and one of the top 10 cycle roads in the world (according to Lonely Planet!).
Staying with us offers you great views, a comfortable room, outdoor spa (otherwise known as a hot tub or jacuzzi), relaxed atmosphere, great kitchen, friendly local advice, and most importantly a peaceful nights sleep.

If you're travelling with a friend or in a group of 3 or 4, we have a second room available (please see our other listing for details!). If you have any other requests, just ask, and we'll see what we can do!
We're well travelled - and enjoy outdoorsy stuff, music, hosting, meeting new people, learning new things, gardening, playing sport, reading, brewing beer, eating nice food and drinking nice wine!
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
PS: are you planning to stay in Queenstown while in New Zealand? We recommend staying with our friend Philip who is also an AirBnB host: http://www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/951960
Arrive any time you like after 5pm on the first day of your stay and depart by midday on the last day of your stay (please ask us if you'd like to request an earlier arrival or later departure time).
Generally-speaking, it's quiet time from about 10:30pm (this includes the spa), but we're flexible for earlier or later, depending on your schedule. No smoking, no pets. Pretty standard stuff really :)
Play a musical instrument? Bring it! Or feel free to play the piano or one of our guitars - we some times burst into an impromptu sing-a-long! (but only if you're interested of course)
