Family-friendly Dunedin holiday home in Ocean View, near Brighton Beach
Welcome our hidden treasure, beach holiday house. Unwind and have a relaxing stay. You'll find everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, your 'home away from home'. Walking through the doors you'll immediately feel at ease with the inviting ambiance, soft tones, cosy furniture decor. All of the beds have comfortable luxurious linen and electric blankets for those cooler winter nights.

This two-storied house features an open plan kitchen, lounge, dining area. The private fully-fenced section has outside decking over two levels. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one separate toilet, and fully contained laundry to cater to your family's needs.

This house does not contain television but has 'fiber broadband' for those who wish to stay connected to the outside world with wifi while on their stay.

There is off-street parking on either side of the house, with a single lockable garage.

Within 50m walk you'll find a children's playground and picnic area before reaching the stunning Ocean View Beach. Just 15 minutes drive from Dunedin airport and 20 minutes Dunedin city centre. This property is well suited for anyone who is looking for a getaway on the outskirts of Dunedin.

Around the corner from our house, you will find a Fish and Chip shop. Within walking distance, just over the hill, you'll find the quaint township of Brighton. You can enjoy a coffee or breakfast from the cafe or an ice-cream from the convenience store. Brighton hosts a surf club where you can enjoy swimming in the beach in a safely patrolled area. In nearby Green Island (8 min drive), you'll find a Fresh-Choice supermarket, petrol stations, cafes, health services and various other amenities including some great Chinese takeaways.

At the end of the street is a bus stop, making it handy to get buses into Dunedin City

Ocean View is a stunning beach with glorious views and rocks to explore. However, it is noted to not be a safe beach to swim in. There are strong, dangerous rips. For safe swimming, it is advised to head around to 'Big Rock' at Brighton Beach to the patrolled area.

5/5 Excellent

Great family property
Thanks Lauren and Jimmy! A great place to stay with 3 small girls as the house has many toys that the kids loved. Great property for a larger family/group.
Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2021

5/5 Excellent

Affordable cozy coastal getaway for your family!
Having visited Dunedin for the first time, Ranui on the beach was perfect for our family from Otara Sth Auckland. It wasnt too far from town because the views distracted any gas monitoring. The house itself was a holiday in itself-everything you need is all packed in this cute 2 level homely home. Having no tv at the house meant our kids played board games, spent time at the white sandy beach which is literally a 5min walk and the world is your oyster when you seize the morning from the master bedroom window. Such a lovely feeling looking foward to coming home after a days out exploring Dunedin, Invercargill etc Lauren checked on us when the recent flooding hit central Otago, thankfully we were not affected as bad as most around Brighton Rustic, cozy, homely and beachy yet family friendly (catered to a pacific island family might i add) i would so come back to Dunedin, first stop Ranui at the beach. Thank you Becker family!

4/5 Good

Family break
This property worked out well for our stay. The kids loved being close to the beach. Our only bad experience was that it was hot during our stay which meant we had to sleep with the windows open and unfortunately we were mauled by mosquitoes!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely Beach Getaway
Comfortable, warm, clean, nicely furnished house. Contained everything we needed. The kids were in 7th heaven when they discovered the toys and games. Well situated, close to the beach, also close enough to Dunedin for easy day trips. Would definitely stay again!

5/5 Excellent

Chilled out beach pad.
We really enjoyed our stay at Ranui. The house is comfortable and roomy and set up with nearly everything you might need. 5 minutes walk to playground and beach and well positioned to capture as much sun as possible! Indoor outdoor flow is great! House was warm, even when it snowed, we loved all of the places available to lounge around and read a book!
