Welcome to Maple Cottage in the city of Dunedin! This quaint and cosy cottage built in 1890 is full of character and has plenty of space, warmth and amenities to make your holiday as comfortable as possible.

The holiday home is ideal for a large group of family and friends looking to have a peaceful holiday whilst still being able to enjoy access to the city of Dunedin. Location-wise, it is still possible to use this home as a base to enjoy the bottom of the south island or use this dwelling as a slightly longer stop to recover on a road trip!

Featuring Queen and Single-sized beds in 4 bedrooms as well as 2 bathrooms, Maple Cottage will allow you to relax comfortably on your stay. With an open plan living and dining room alongside a spacious living room, there is ample opportunity to socialise and spend quality time with loved ones. When the weather is fine, step outdoors to soak up the garden with all of its lush greenery.

The closest shops in Mornington are just a 5-minute walk away with cafes, florists, boutique stores, bakeries and dairy stores as well as the Countdown supermarket. The town also has Jubilee park - a beautiful park with stunning views over the city, its own children’s area and space for dog walking. Discover more about the history of this place, with a visit to the Mornington Tram, which was one of the world’s steepest tram lines!

Dunedin is a popular city amongst visitors to the south island known for its Scottish and Maori heritage combined with Victorian and Edwardian Architecture. Head into town to explore all of this as well as visiting museums, restaurants and shops to experience the local culture.

If you’re looking to find nature, head to the Otago peninsula where you will find lots of species of animals living in their natural habitats. With Queenstown and Te Anau being 3 hours drive away it is a popular stop amongst travellers looking to discover the hidden gems of the south island.

What are you waiting for? Discover Dunedin and your happy place from the comfort of Maple Cottage!

Lovely villa in quiet street, only minutes from centre of city. Warm, clean, and nicely presented. Perfect for a family gathering.

Stayed April 2022

Lovely home. Beds all comfortable

Stayed March 2022

Great location and very quiet. Good working heat pumps on a cold day. The dishwasher was out-of-order and the gas bottle for the hob was empty. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.

Thank you for your review, Justine! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your holiday at maple Cottage and sorry that the dishwasher and hob were out of order during your stay. We're working with the local team to ensure these two issues are addressed for all future bookings. We hope to see you again in the future!

Excellent house

Stayed January 2022

What a fabulous house. It was so perfect for our nearly two week stay preparing for our daughters wedding. The size meant all of our daughters and niece (the other bridesmaid) could stay and when we had 7adults in the house (for about a week of our stay) it was completely fine. The garden was lovely to relax in after a day of cake baking (yes, the kitchen was fine for some serious cooking). The main living room was perfect for us all and we have beautiful photos of the girls having their hair and makeup done with the green garden behind them. I wanted a house that was practical for our adult family to live in and for the few days it was o ly a few of us, but was also a “pretty” wedding anticipation appropriate place. It exactly met these expectations for me. And as a small bonus (referring to an earlier review) there is a lock on the bathroom (most necessary!). As google maps shows it is also in an excellent location and In a nice area for evening walks. It’s hard to think of negatives. The lounge was small and on its own but that actually worked well for us (and our 21 year old daughter and her ps4!!). The wifi dropped out a few times but maybe we were overusing it. Beds were comfy, plenty of blankets, heater worked (yes this shouldn’t be an issue in an NZ summer but…) and there were enough plates etc (and the wine glasses were nice - very important for a wedding morning toast before we all headed out to Port Chalmers). I highly recommend Maple Cottage for a relaxed stay in a lovely environment.

Stayed October 2021

What a great place for a family get together, beautiful home with lots of room. Good kitchen facilities. Would stay there again.

Stayed August 2021

Great house good for families or large groups. We loved the location. It was well presented and had everything we needed.

Stayed April 2021

A wonderful “ grand older lady” with most of the modern comforts in an ideal location. We will definitely return.

Stayed March 2021

Maple Cottage is a gem! We absolutely enjoyed our family reunion whilst in Dunedin. Plenty of room for us all and very comfortable beds. Such a stunning house we would definitely stay again!

Stayed November 2020

Spacious and comfortable home

Stayed September 2020

The property is a beautiful character home with lovely furniture and a great sociable kitchen for a family gathering. It was also very clean and the bedrooms are all large with comfortable beds. The pictures online do not show the main bathroom, which unfortunately is quite small with a shower over the bath and 1 tiny mirror. The bathroom which is shown in 2 pictures taken at different angles is actually the ensuite, which can only be accessed via one of the bedrooms or by going outdoors. A general lack of mirrors in the house and no locks on the bathroom doors made it a little challenging for 7 adults to stay comfortably.

Thank you for your feedback, Sarah! We're glad you enjoyed the character of the Maple Cottage and are sorry to hear you weren't entirely happy with some aspects of the property. We will look at getting a photo of the additional bathroom added to the property listing.
