“I had a great stay at Fi's place. She is definitely a superhost. I was expecting to arrive at 10 pm and was a bit worried because it was going to be late but she was very helpful with that. Comunication was good. Location is good, very close to the botanic garden, which is beautiful, and easy to reach by bus. Complimentaries were very much appreciated. Highly recommended! Thank you Fi”
Our home is situated in Kaikorai Valley with rural views. We have hosted many homestay students and back packers over the years. The cabin has no kitchen but does have a fridge, electric jug, toaster and microwave. We are motorbike friendly and can find a place to park your bike in the shed. BUT please note our driveway is very steep and even if you drive up there are 11 concrete steps and later 10 wooden steps to the cabin. The rural views, however, make the climb worth it.
“The listing is as described something a little different from staying in a hotel or motel. A nice little cabin up on a hillside close to Dunedin centre with a nice view from the cabin. Ideal for a weekend away or a short trip. Place was clean and comfortable with tea/coffee and cereal available for breakfast in the morning. Easy, straightforward communication and check in. Judy the host met us upon check in and offered us some local tips a nice touch and the cabin also has a information booklet providing additional info on local sights. Thanks.”
Enjoy your complimentary continental breakfast or a cupa in your own private sunny courtyard surrounded by native plants and the odd croaking frog. Around a five minute walk to St Kilda beach, two bus stops, supermarket, petrol station, and many takeaways.....depending on how long your legs are and how fast you walk.... and takes around 10 minutes to drive to the Octagon, which is the centre of the city, depending on the time of day.
“We really enjoyed staying there. It was so nice to see thoughtful touches everywhere, was sparkling clean and we were quite satisfied with the various breads and cereals. I've been to many accomodations in New Zealand, and I'd say this place is the best for sure.”
