Enjoy modern comfort in this cozy private guesthouse. Perched atop a one-car garage, its position high above a quiet residential street gives this tiny house a very private feel. Large double glazed windows on three sides and a spacious private deck provide sweeping views of Otago Harbour & Peninsula, walking distance from the city centre.

Eignin
Newly constructed and nestled among towering tree ferns, with an expansive view (both from the deck and from the bedroom) of harbour and peninsula. Designed by owner-architect Valeri, experience the high ceilings and tall windows of a traditional New Zealand villa without the cold drafts and faulty plumbing that plague the century-old versions of this grand old style.

When you arrive, a short flight of stairs behind the garage leads to your private deck and keypad entrance to the guesthouse.

The kitchenette nestled behind the entrance door is equipped with microwave, toaster, fridge, electric induction hotplate, stainless steel cookware, electric jug/kettle, and a digital meat thermometer. A gas barbecue is available for the exclusive use of guests on the covered portion of the deck.

A full bathroom with privacy lock features a full-sized bathtub w/shower with high pressure hot water. In keeping with our "old but new" design concept, the walls and ceiling of the bathroom were hand-plastered by an artisan with "Relay," a high-tech plaster (also used in airport runways!) that is increasingly being adopted in high end residential architecture overseas. We believe our "tiny house" represents the first residential use of Relay in New Zealand.

The double bed on the main floor is an antique; the mattress is very soft, which most guests love, but if you prefer a firm mattress there is a second double bed available in the wee loft above the bathroom. Both beds are doubles, so approximately 190cm (6' 3") long by 135cm (4' 5") wide; moreover the bed on the main floor has both headboard and footboard (see photos), which are only slightly further apart (194cm) than the mattress length. The platform (2.4m above the main floor) is accessed via a 70 degree ladder that can be stowed against the wall when a second bed is not required. (Note: some guest reviews in 2019 and early 2020 mention an unpleasant "sag" in the antique bed; this has now been rectified by replacing the supporting wooden beams; the bed is still as soft and cozy as ever).

A child-size mattress (70cm x 130cm) is also available and can be used either in the loft or on the floor of the main bedroom (in which case it can be slipped under the main-floor bed during the day).

Energy efficiency: All windows are double glazed and tightly sealed, but can be opened if you prefer fresh air. A high efficiency heat pump will keep you warm in winter and double as AC if you have the good fortune of visiting on one of Dunedin's rare hot summer days. Walls/ceiling/floor have been insulated to a high standard, facilitated by 150mm framing depth in wall/roof timber. We have also installed a Showerex energy drain in the garage below the tiny house. This device acts as a passive heat exchanger, transferring heat from draining shower water to incoming cold water.

Secure WiFi is provided to guests free of charge (gigabit fibre connection w/unlimited data); an ethernet port is also available next to the bed.

Walking(driving) times to local destinations, in minutes: Roslyn Village 6(1); Moana Pool 8(1); Octagon 18(6); University of Otago 30(6); Forsyth Barr Stadium 45(10); Mercy Hospital 14(3); parking for Tunnel Beach (13); Mt. Cargill viewpoint (21); parking for glow worms at Nichols Creek (11); parking for Soldiers Memorial (15); bus stop 1. Note that we are near the top of the hill, so a walk downtown means a climb (or 10 dollar taxi ride) on the return! But for us the view from up here makes it worth the effort.

We are American ex-pats who moved to Dunedin in 2011. We love outdoor adventures (we first met in a Seattle mountaineering course!), and even after years on the ground in NZ we remain in awe of the natural beauty of the South Island. We use Airbnb as both guests and hosts, and enjoy meeting fellow travelers and sharing local secrets. Professionally, Valeri is a self-employed architect and Trent is an economics lecturer at the university. Our daughter attended high school in Dunedin and is currently pursuing undergraduate studies in the U.S.
