Scarfie Flats


If you want a student flat a short walk from the University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin’s best nightlife, and Forsyth Barr Stadium, or if you’re a student looking for a room in an existing flat, then Scarfie Flats is the website for you.

The Kinraid family have been landlords in Dunedin for over 25 years and handle all the maintenance, and lawnmowing themselves. They live locally so any maintenance problems are sorted quickly and easily, without going through a third-party property manager.


For the Scarfie Flats website, it was really important that the site be fully functional on mobile devices and easy for potential tenants to view properties and make contact with the team from their phones. This was their first website, so it meant starting from scratch to create logos, gather photos, and decide how to display their properties for the best impact.


Turboweb worked with the Scarfie Flats team to create a simple-looking yet highly functional site that the Kinraid family could easily update themselves.

The Scarfie Flats logo was one that Turboweb’s graphic design team created together with the Kinraids, and which they feel captures the essence of the business perfectly.

The Scarfie Flats site makes great use of Turboweb’s Properties Module, making it easy for potential tenants to view flats and properties that are right for them.


'Kinraid Kinco Ltd have been in the student property business in North Dunedin for many years, and times have changed. We needed a website so that potential tenants could view our flats digitally from their couches anywhere in the country.

The process was easy. I enjoyed the developing of our logo as I had an idea of what it should look like. The team was patient as it evolved and it’s brilliant. Our logo represents the business perfectly.

The Turboweb team listened to my brief, were very supportive during the process and gave us a simple and professional website that I can easily administrate on my laptop and potential tenants can view from their smartphones. Thanks Turboweb'
