  • Description


    A working man in a very large and old house with two dogs and a large garden. There is a great view of the city of Dunedin, the beach and the harbour. One mile from the beach and two miles from the city. The house is very warm and receives all day sun. Very close to the bus, but one can either walk or ride a bike to wherever they want to go. Bikes available for use.

    There is plenty to do and explore in the city of Dunedin. The surf is often good except in winter when it is too rough, but the waves are very big. There are many walking tracks. There is good rock climbing locally, tramping/hiking sailing, fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, kite surfing, wind surfing, normal surfing, four wheel driving & jet boating. There are no continental rules here. Otherwise chill out, read a book, watch a movie or play some music. Unlimited Wifi. Transport is by bike, walking or bus. Workawayers must wash the bed sheets, dry them in the dryer, and remake the beds before they leave even if this means getting up early. Alcohol and/or drugs are not permitted to be consumed on the property.
