Located just 15 minutes from Dunedin City Centre and 18kms from Dunedin International Airport, on the Southern Scenic Route, Ocean View Apartment offers fresh, attractive, modern decor in the office end of what was formerly the Ocean View School.

Our apartment is a lazy 5 minute stroll to the pristine white sands of Ocean View beach that beg to be explored and enjoyed. Vast and wild, with growing visits from the NZ Sea Lion and NZ Fur Seal, the local beach is a super spot for landboard riding, horse riding, surfing, running or getting out for a brisk walk. It is banked by gorgeous grass covered sand dunes and looks as long as the eye can see and more. The safer Brighton beach offers volunteer surf lifesaving patrollers from early November until late March annually and is a great beach to take the kids as it has a shallow, slow flowing estuary for the very young child to enjoy.

Special conditions: Guest must clean the apartment and leave it as they find it. Please strip the beds leaving the mattress and pillow protectors, duvets and queen bed coloured pillow covers in place - in other words only remove white linens. We will make up the beds with fresh linen ready for new guests.

    The property is a converted school so there is plenty of room to get your gear sorted out and for kids to play and explore. The beautiful beach is just a short walk away and is a perfect place to unwind from your travels.

  • A great place for a family holiday

    A great place for a family holiday. Quiet but with a tennis court and animals and plenty of space for kids to run around. The drive into Dunedin was easy and took about 15 minutes. Beds were clean and very comfortable. We had a very enjoyable stay despite the weather.

  • Peaceful location, close to lovely beach area

    Peaceful location, close to lovely beach area. A unique setting being a previous school office area converted into a holiday home. It was clean, comfortable and well presented.
