- English, Korean
Hi there, my name is Nadine and I am a photographer who lives in Dunedin, a brilliant small city filled with arts, great food and even better coffee. My partner Jake originally came from Korea and is a home handyman and golfer by day and a chef, creating some of that great food, by night!
Nadine_and_Jake purchased this House in 2010
Why Nadine_and_Jake chose Dunedin
This house, built at the start of last century was originally purchased as my home because I loved the features, the feel and the light. I also loved the rambling cottage garden and the green and private back yard. I always wanted a house with water nearby and when there is enough water in the creek, the sun is high, and the trees green, it is like being in the countryside. It is situated in North East Valley which is a great part of town filled with friendly people and small local businesses.
What makes this House unique
An ideal house for relaxing but also in walking distance to Baldwin Street, the world's steepest residential street! It is also in walking distance to the bus stop or the Gardens supermarket and other stores. It is a 10 minute drive to the stadium, and 15 minutes in busy traffic to the city centre, the beach or pretty much anywhere! I love vintage and retro furnishing and this house suits the items I gathered over time.

Beautifully renovated, comfortable, sparkling clean. Has everything you need. Convenient to town but quiet location.
Lovely and cosy
Enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and tidy. All beds had electric blankets so we were very warm.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay Tricia!
Immaculate, very well presented, very peaceful spot. Great wee fire (with plenty of firewood) made the sitting-room cosy. Well kitted out with everything you might need. Excellent wi-fi and great selection of DVDs. Good location close to town, with easy access and plenty of parking. Great communication with the helpful owners. Would definitely stay again.
Thanks for the lovely review guys. We were seriously impressed with how clean and tidy you left the place and you would absolutely be welcome back any time!
A great place to stay!
A perfect house for our needs, extremely well equipped, tidy, spacious and quiet. It was very kind of Nadine to have heaters on and a fire going to welcome us on a cold evening. I'm hoping we will be able to stay here during future trips to Dunedin.
Thanks for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and you are welcome back any time!
Great cottage that has everything you need. Very well organised. Lovely owners
Great experience. Nadine even has fire and heat pumps on for when we arrived late at night. So nice to be welcomed like that. ‘This is a great house that is well looked after and has everything you need. Close to park for kids. Had a great stay. Would definitely recommend.
Thanks for the lovely review. It was our pleasure to host your family. You are welcome back any time.
Otago University Open day
What a cute cozy place! Nadine was prompt and efficient in our communication. The place was clean and had everything we needed. There was no TV but a screen with a DVD player. There are a lot of books and movies for people to enjoy. The fact that there was no TV, we were able to sit down every night we were there, and reflected on our day. (our daughter is looking at otago uni for next year).
The fire was quick to warm up the place and there is also a heat pump in the dining room if needed.
All in all, the house suited us perfectly. It was close to the university, supermarket, takeaway places, diary etc.
Thank you Nadine.
Signal Hill Lookout and Bracken Lookout are both a short drive from the house. For the fit who are good with going uphill, from nearby Bethune’s Gully there is a dirt path up to the Mt Cargill lookout. Alternatively you can take the still steep but shorter walk to the top from the Organ Pipes. If that is all too ambitious you could simply take the very short walk to stand at the bottom of Baldwin Street, the “world’s steepest residential street” or even attempt the walk to the top!
