Sunny, leafy retreat close to the University of Otago


We own a great property in the tranquil neighbourhood of Opoho, overlooking the city of Dunedin and its surrounding hills. The home comes fully furnished and features modern appliances. Enjoy gas cooking facilities and a great coffee machine! Complimentary high speed fibre-optic Internet is delivered via a Wi-Fi router with full coverage across the house.

You will stay warm due to full double-glazing throughout along with ceiling and floor thermal insulation. Two heat pumps (hall and living areas provide convenient heat when required. All water heating is provided from a gas instantaneous boiler system meaning you will never run out of hot water.

Electricity costs are charged based on consumption, but the home is very warm and well insulated so heating costs are typically low. Energy for water heating and cooking is supplied by LPG gas which is included in the monthly rental so no additional cost is incurred for those services.

The house has three bedrooms however the third bedroom can be set up as a home office / study area.

The home has extensive green space on the street facing front entrance, as well as a large, established vegetable garden and private outdoor area to the rear. The property is fully fenced and is very safe and child-friendly.

This is a great area to live in, and we should know as we live right over the fence!

About Me
I am a data scientist based in Dunedin, New Zealand where I work for the local power utility company. My partner and I like to travel but are always happy to come home to Dunedin which is arguably New Zealand's best kept secret. In the weekends I'm usually found working on various projects around our home, having developed a taste for home handyman work after having completely renovated our home in the last few years.

We stayed for two months in October and November and found the house warm and comfortable, which can be important in Dunedin. The location, on Signal Hill has stunning views, it is a safe residential area on the outskirts of the city yet close to the centre for easy access. The house is roomy with excellent washing and drying facilities provided. Local shopping is excellent adjacent to the beautiful Botanical Gardens at the end of the road.
