World famous is a lovely little house at the bottom of Baldwin Street. Central for Dunedin Town centre and places to see about town. Loved the house. Elenor was excellent as an owner. Even roping in the next door neighbour to help. Would recommend this property and the owner to anyone. Thanks Elenor nothing was any trouble.

Management response:

Thank you for being such wonderful guests. I really appreciated you looking after the house so well and leaving it so tidy and clean. Also, thank you for your friendly communication. It was a pleasure to have you stay and you are more than welcome to return anytime at all.

We loved staying here so much, we brainstormed ways we could move in or at least stay a lot longer. The house is cute, very well styled, warm, spacious and has absolutely everything you'd need - as well as a few things you didn't know you needed (playing cars on the kitchen floor - just brilliant!). It's our favourite stay...
