Make a holiday rental home, or villa in New Zealand your home away from home

Accommodation in New Zealand

New Zealand is a country of rare and diverse beauty with glacial mountains, abundant forests, cosmopolitan cities and long, deserted beaches. With a number of outdoor activities and sights to see, holiday homes in New Zealand are perfect for anyone. Adventurous visitors can choose from hiking, skiing, rafting and bungee jumping, while younger visitors and travelers looking to relax can swim with dolphins, whale-watch, fish for trout in gorgeous streams and rivers, play golf on one of the many courses. From a New Zealand holiday cottage in the countryside you will undoubtedly enjoy the sensational natural phenomenon or relax in the unrivaled welcome of the locals.

Places to holiday in New Zealand

Visitors looking for holiday homes in New Zealand have two main islands to choose from.

Between the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean, North Island is known for its sub-tropical climate. This makes it a pleasant place for a New Zealand holiday rental all year around. North Island is also famous for its beautiful long white beaches and native Kauri forests. Activities in the region include diving, hiking, golf, and a lot more. The food and wine trails encompassing the country's northern most vineyards at Kaitaia have become hugely popular with visitors taking a holiday rental in New Zealand and locals alike.

South Island is one of the most strikingly beautiful places on the globe, with huge areas of unspoilt forests, mountains and glaciers. There are a host of activities to enjoy, especially the adventure sports around Queenstown. From your New Zealand holiday home on the South Island, you can travel to Stewart Island or the Chatham's Archipel. It is also recommended to check out some key attractions such as the new National Park, the Catlins, and the Southern Scenic Route.

Things to do in New Zealand

Visitors staying at holiday homes in New Zealand are offered the best of both worlds—extreme adventure, extreme scenery and extreme relaxation.

For adventure activities, visitors are advised to head down to Queenstown, Taupo and Rotorua. These areas are popular holiday destinations and provide stunning scenic backdrops for bungee jumping, skydiving, white-water rafting, and jet skiing adventures.

South Island is home to Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier. Take a guided glacier trek or view the majestic glaciers from a scenic flight. Kaikoura, on the east coast of the South Island, is home to a pod of giant sperm whales and a successful whale-watching industry.

Other activity options offered throughout the country include horse riding, safaris, 4WD tours, quad bikes, hot-air balloons and kayaking. This is a country which loves sport, and especially adventure sports. A New Zealand holiday rental will be almost guaranteed to be close to facilities for any sport imaginable!

Weather in New Zealand

There is a noticeable difference in the climates between North and South Islands. The top of the North Island is sub-tropical, while the bottom of the South Island is temperate. Overall, New Zealand has a very mild climate, which makes it a suitable destination for a holiday rental, home, or villa all year round.

Travel to New Zealand

The majority of visitors arrive by air. There are seven airports that handle international flights: Auckland (AKL), Christchurch (CHC), Dunedin (DUD), Hamilton (HLZ), Palmerston North (PMR), Queenstown (ZQN) and Wellington (WLG). There are cruise ships that visit New Zealand, but no regular passenger ship services.
