There weren't many reviews or mentions of this property, but it looked excellent from the website and we weren't disappointed. This was probably the most luxurious self catering accommodation we stayed in on our trip around the South Island. It is about 15 minutes from the Octagon and the central part of Dunedin along one of the main shopping streets, and just a few blocks from the University of Otago. The room was very clean, large and well appointed, with a cleverly designed kitchen area just inside the door than incorporated a refrigerator, cabinets, sink, and combination washer/dryer. The latter takes a bit of getting used to since it is possible to under & overdry your clothing, or even rewash the load when you're trying to add drying time. The jacuzzi tub was a real luxury and an unusual feature in New Zealand lodgings. The only minus is the noise from the two student apartments adjoining the property on Saturday night and a bit on Sunday (don't know about Friday, since we weren't there). Monday evening was completely quiet, so I imagine that it is that way when school is not in session. Downstairs is a large living room and sitting area that is for guests' use. There is also a computer terminal with free internet access - a real plus if that is important to you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bluestone. Neville and Janet were very pleasant hosts; their daughter has a rabbit hutch with 3 resident rabbits in a corner of the parking lot. The driveway is moderately steep and about a half block in from the street.
