  • A peaceful and tranquil stopover.

A friendly welcome awaits you at Height of Dunedin.

Relax on our unique 6-acre property and experience the semi-rural atmosphere in a lovely self-contained, 1-bedroom cottage. A sunny, clean and tidy, 44 square metre, 2-room detached home. Behind our house in the middle of the farm you are secluded below awesome pine trees with a well-appointed courtyard garden.

Height of Dunedin is a peaceful, tranquil stop-over slightly out of the city. We are only 5km to restaurants, city shopping and a 10 minute drive to local sites. Yet we are far enough away to enjoy the sunsets. Recharge with a wine on the patio. Be amazed by the magnificent Milky Way. Catch a shooting star and the Southern Cross wonderfully clear away from city lights.

Awaken after a restful sleep to the morning chorus of local birdlife including tuis, bellbirds, rosella parrots, wood pigeons and pet hens.

All this at 350 metres above sea level guarantees some snow falls during winter and beautiful, picturesque surroundings.

Well-equipped Kitchenette: microwave, twin hot plate, mini table oven, rice cooker.

    The cottage itself is lovely in the farmlike surrounds and would be a fatastic place to stay in the summer. however the heatpump struggled to keep up with the intense dunedin cold! Single glassed windows leaked badly and we had to leave the heatpump on 24hrs to keep the place reasonably warm.. The beds were comfy and good quality.

    Thanks for your feedback. It was a surprise that an unannounced snow fall hit on the night you arrived. It can definitely be cold in Dunedin so we stock the cottage with extra warm bedding to ensuite you have a comfortable sleep. We're pleased to advise we have improved the cottage for on those chilly nights by instaling a Ventilator. This is a heat transfer unit that promotes warm dry air and has greatly reduced any condensation.

    We were a little worried that the property would be too far out of town, and were pleasantly surprised to find that it was actually quite close to Dunedin and the CBD, and was easy and quick to get to by car. The accommodation was ample for our family of four, and we really appreciated the kitchen setup and supplies, and the wonderful bottle of milk.

    Yes we have a very direct route to the centre of Dunedin and only a 10 min drive, yet you get to benefit the semi rural atmosphere. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

    The location of the property although slightly out of Dunedin was relatively easy to find and a very very peaceful spot for relaxing. Thanks for sharing your place with us.
