About this Holiday House

Stay in our comfortable private accommodation for less than the cost of most motel rooms but with 4 times the space! The apartment is in an attractive art deco row in the heart of Invercargill opposite the Water Tower. It's a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk into the city centre and Queens Park is round the corner. Also close to Stadium Southland, Velodrome, Splash Palace and other sporting facilities, plus the fabulous new Transport World museum. WiFi on. The apartment can sleep 2 couples in permanent beds - 1 king bedroom and 1 double. There is a sofabed in the lounge plus a single trundler bed: however, more than 5 people and their luggage is too much of a squash. In the main bedroom there is also a day bed which can sleep a child (or anyone under about 5ft). "Doony" is fully self-contained with a well equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower over bath, and laundry. It is all-electric with heat pump. All linen is supplied. Doon St is quiet with just the reservoir and tower as main neighbours. There is off-street parking to the front, and a private decked courtyard to the rear. The apartment originally had 1 big bedroom and a previous owner has divided the space into 2 sleeping areas (see floor plan in photos). This means the smaller bedroom space has the sliding front door, the bigger bedroom space doesn't have an opening window, and there is a connecting door between bedrooms (which you don't have to use). This is fine for families and friends but may not be suitable for work colleagues. However, you can use the back door as the main entrance and keep the front bedroom space private. SORRY BUT NO 1-NIGHT STAYS. 2 nights+ is great; WEEKLY FROM $500 for 2 weeks+ Southland Hospital is less than 10mins drive away at Kew. There is a takeaway, bakery, supermarkets and petrol station close to the house. It is within a couple of minutes walk of Queens Park - 80 acres of mature trees and gardens. At the park entrance is the Southland Museum (home of the tuatara), Art Gallery and Visitor Centre, where you can also hire bikes. The park also contains a huge aviary, elaborate Victorian glasshouses, a big playground with water features and most wonderful of all to children - an animal park with llamas, deer, rabbits, wallabys, Auckland Island pigs, chooks and an ostrich, amongst others. All free! An 18-hole golf course sits to the side of the park. Invercargill is fantastically located for the delights of Southland and the Lakes District. It takes 2.5 hours to drive to Queenstown, or Dunedin. You can take the Southern Scenic Route through the Catlins. The dunes and huge open spaces of Oreti Beach are 10 minutes away, where the Teratonga Raceway is located. Best of all 20 minutes to Bluff and you can catch the ferry to STEWART ISLAND (or fly, the airport is a 5 minute drive from the CBD).

We loved this delightful apartment. The location was fantastic and we really appreciated how wonderfully clean it was and that it was so comfortable and inviting. Had a wonderful time here.
An absolute gem - we stayed at Doony for a week and it was central to everything. It is clean, warm, well equipped and owners Chris and Holger are lovely and friendly. Thank you for your warm hospitality and ensuring that there were toys for our little boy to play with :)
