About this house

Our experienced house keeper ensures that the house is warm, comfortable and safe and that the daily meals provided are varied, nutritious and enjoyable.

All studios are en suite and all rooms are unfurnished, so that you can bring your own furniture, truly making it your home. The two storey house was specifically designed and built for us. It is very accessible as it has a lift servicing the upper floor and is level throughout, suitable for wheelchair and walker frame users.

Abbeyfield house management

The property is managed by Abbeyfield Dunedin Inc. a registered NZ charity. Each resident participates in the house management through their participation in the House Committee. The volunteer, non-profit management contributes to our ability to provide quality accommodation at an affordable cost.
