81 Opoho Road
About the house: This is a great flat, warm for Dunedin, inexpensive and still close enough to walk to the Octagon. The property manager is great to deal with and really understanding and prompt to fix anything. Having said that it is due for some TLC from the landlord, paint and window renewal etc.
Landlord/Property Manager: The landlord is prompt to repair issues around the place when notified by the property manager but should be looking to invest in renovating and maintaining the property. Double glazing, insulation in the living room, and new carpet would make a big difference to a flat that is good for Dunedin standards but with further room for improvement.
Best Thing: The fireplace!
Worst Thing: lack of long-term investment
About the house: This flat was okay... Needs insulation, new carpets and as the last commenter said some investment! The fireplace is great but we couldn't always afford to keep it running. Not a bad place for a first-time flatter, we loved this flat in Summer. Winter, however, was miserable without the fire.
Landlord/Property Manager: We didn't have any contact with the landlord. The property manager is nice but wouldn't reply to emails
Best Thing: The location, the character
Worst Thing: Cold, Needs a renovation
