New Zealand Vacation Rentals

New Zealand is comprised of two main islands - North Island and South Island, and some smaller islands - Chatham Islands and Stewart Island-Rakiura. It lies 1,500 kilometers east of Australia. In New Zealand: ski in the winter time; go mountain biking. Swim with the dolphins; get up-close to royal albatross, penguins, seals and sea lions. Discover wild black-sand beaches; walk on a trail in a rainforest or hike across a glacier. Go surfing, scuba diving, or swimming alongside welcoming beaches. Relax.

Vacation rentals accommodations offer all the comforts of home. Some enable you to avail yourself of the services of a personal chef who will prepare meals for you in the kitchens of vacation rentals. Or, you can have meals catered, gathering in the great room with friends and family in your vacation rental. Others may have a swimming pool, perfect to start your day with a swim, and then have breakfast on the terrace. A centrally located condo rental with city or ocean views, vacation rentals that offer privacy yet have plenty of room for a large group, and charming cottage accommodations are but some of the lodging choices with Owner Direct Vacation Rentals.

Take a wine tour; enjoy a game of golf. Climb on board a boat cruise; go horseback riding, or cycle. What could be better than soaking in a geothermal hot pool? Leisurely take in all that the galleries and museums have to offer. Go shopping; find traditional carvings and weavings of the Māori. Learn about the history of New Zealand. The Māori gave it the name Aotearoa; take in a Māori cultural event.

Visit New Zealand where winters are warm and summers are cool; January and February are the warm months and July is the coolest month. The areas with the most sunshine hours per year are: Bay of Plenty, Hawke's Bay and Nelson-Marlborough. The mountainous areas - Central Plateau in the north, and the Southern Alps in the south - see the most snow in June through October.

On the North Island you will find the wine country of Hawke’s Bay, and hot springs, with bubbling mud pools and soaring geysers close by Rotorua. Auckland, the cosmopolitan city, is ideal for shopping as well as exploring its harbour filled with spectacularly beautiful islands. Discover why New Zealand is the perfect location for Middle Earth, the setting of Tolkien's books made into the movie, Lord of the Rings.

Rent a car and see the South Island: its stunning opaque turquoise lakes set within magnificent landscapes, the Southern Alps, Canterbury Plains, Fiordland, Marlborough Sounds, and the rainforest and rivers of the West Coast.
