Best Thing: The view and spaciousness
Worst Thing: The cold
About the house: Great flat. Has HRV as well as a moisture filter that keeps the place dry all year, never had any condensation on windows. Great view of North Dunedin from the balcony and lawn, nice little BBQ area, although it gets a little bit windy. Downstairs bathroom has a really awesome shower with a shower-dome which keeps the heat in when you're having a shower in winter, by the end of the year we were all using that bathroom. Kitchen is nice and big with enough room for 3 or 4 people to cook at once. Rooms are massive, the front rooms have a really nice view but the back rooms are warmer. The flat is a bit cold in winter but its a big flat and its Dunedin so that's a given. It stays dry so I'm sure it would be easy to heat, we don't use heaters and we survived.
Landlord/Property Manager: Really nice landlords, always willing to help out if something broke or went wrong. They don't mind parties as long as the place doesn't get damaged and is kept in reasonable condition. Respond very quickly and mowed the lawns for us.
Best Thing: The view
Worst Thing: Walking up the hill
About the house: Awesome location
Hill can be a bit sketchy in winter due to lack of sun on the road.
Landlord/Property Manager: Simple, don't screw them, they don't screw you. Awesome landlords to work with and always willing to help out with any queries.
Best Thing: Location and View
Worst Thing: Tad Cold
