This beautiful home is 2 minutes walk to St Clair beach and cafes and a few minutes drive to the centre of town, hospital, university and Forsyth Barr stadium. The Hot Salt Water pool is now open so that is a great feature to enjoy.
There is lots of space for guests to enjoy the comfort of a real family home with magnificent views and excellent hospitality.
We can only accommodate 1-2 people. The bed is a queen and the bathroom is solely for the guests.
They can use the lounge area upstairs to have breakfast and the use of the lounge area to relax.
This is shared with the household. There is also a laundry which the guests are more than welcome to use.
There kitchen is not available for cooking. You are welcome to use plates etc and the use of a fridge if need be.
I am very approachable to advice and conversation as we really want your stay in Dunedin will be a friendly and memorable one. Julia and I both work but varying days but just love hearing about our guests adventures.
I expect the guests to act in a respectful manner at all times. The booking is for one bedroom so that has a maximum of 2 people. We do not allow pets and we are a non smoking household.
Sorry but we do not have guest cooking facilities.
As I am hosting just one bedroom and my home please don't hesitate to ask me any queries you may have. I love meeting people and want your stay to be memorable in the best way possible.
I am originally from Christchurch and lived mostly in Australia until we returned in 1991. I love Dunedin and epsecially the life style and sense of community here in St Clair. I have been in our family business running restaurants for the past 23 years. For 1.5 years prior to 24/12/15 I ran a fashion business for a local Dunedin designer Tanya Carlson. Loved it but she closed her shop to concentrate on her Auckland outlet. I am now working for another lovely Dunedin fashion store called White by Design. Love it!
I have two sons; Brett, living in Christchurch and the other Finn is in Queenstown. Finn now drives the jet boats on the Dart River out of Glenorchy in Queenstown. We are a sports orientated family with my youngest son, Finn,competing in the Barcelona Olympics. My oldest son, Brett, has 3 beautiful girls with the oldest 20 who is at uni studying to be a vet. I'm immensely proud of all of them.
I love music, theatre, movies, fashion, travel, cooking, walking and dogs.My Bulldog Judge that is shown in my pictures died on the 3/1/15. Miss him heaps. I have now acquired my sons wee dog Billy. He is a wee Lhasa Apso/Maltese cross. A bit yappy on arrival but a delightful quiet dog. You will love him.
I am a friendly relaxed person who wants to ensure that everything is right for guests. With being many years in the hospitality trade I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world.
My friend Julia lives in a self contained part of the house and helps with airbnb guest requirements.
So don't hesitate you will love it here.
My life motto is BE KIND.
