888 Cumberland Street
About the house: Upstairs is warmer than down so choose wisely with bedrooms. Very little insulation but with a small amount of heating or a dehumidifer the rooms warm up well. Outdoor area is a let down as the washing line hangs over the only back yard space you have so if your an avid beer pong player it may need to be done inside. All rooms have dead bolts on the inside and the front door aswell. However the back door can be a little temperamental with closing and unlocking/locking.
Landlord/Property Manager: The landlords are super helpful and have properties all over Dunedin so now about how to deal with everything and know exactly what they want. Are very quick to answer any queries you have and when locked out of your room (due to the fantasic locks) have come instantly to let us back in.
Best Thing: Spacious rooms
Worst Thing: Shitty outdoor area and very small kitchen/living room
About the house: Close to New World Gardens, about 10 minutes to Central library. Brand new kitchen and bathroom in 2016, new carpet the year before. One bedroom downstairs that is the coldest, rooms upstairs warmer, two good size, one small that wouldn't fit a double bed. Cold in the winter, but the heat pump warms it up quickly. big freezer in shed with washer and dry. In general a really good student flat
Landlord/Property Manager: Could not ask for better landlords, so responsive. Bring us baking, help immediately if we are locked out. Anything that is broken is fixed straight away, any suggestions made are listened to.
Best Thing: The landlords are angels, and it's such good value for money
Worst Thing: Just the classic low temp
