About Dunkley House

Dunkley House is a contemporary and stylish guest house recently created from a period property dating back to the early 1900s.


Located in a quaint Victorian street and set within a private and tropical walled garden, Dunkley House contains 11 spacious en-suite bedrooms, four with their own private patios and two with their own private plunge pools, as well as a two bedroomed self catering apartment.

The whole house can also be rented on a self catering basis, for groups of up to 24 people. Enjoy delicious home cooked breakfasts in the dining room or on the patio beside a sparkling pool.

The old colonial shutters, sheer crisp white curtains, high ceilings and our unique mosaic floor creates an airy bright atmosphere throughout the house. The owner has decorated each room individually, using contemporary colours and furniture to result in a pleasing, comfortable and stylish environment without compromising the original character of the property.
