Stay in New Zealand
Matamata / Hobbiton
Hosts Denise & Bruce Bryce
77 Duncan Rd, Walton, Matamata 3474, NZ
Bruce and Denise are incredible hosts and incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area and art. They will welcome you with warm hearts and for breakfast Bruce’s famous fresh warm out of the oven croissants and George Clooney coffee. You will love their beautifully decorated home and of course don’t forget to spend time with “the girls”
12 Bolton St, Wellington, 6011, NZ
Had a great stay at the Bolton Hotel centrally located and well appointed with a hip little coffee bar in the lobby, great gym and pool. Good for families, executives and couples as some rooms are apartment style where everyone can spread out and have their own space.
170 Esplanade Apt #1, Kaikoura Canterbury NZ
Hosts: Lynette and Gary Schott
Hosts Lyn and Gary are awesome and so is their beautiful Golden Labrador Retriever Alexa This two-bedroom apartment is super clean with a fantastic seaside view and an abundance of activities within walking distance in Kaikoura. Go sea kayaking with dolphins and seals with Kaikoura Kayaks or take a leisurely stroll along the sea wall; all outside your door!
State Highway 8, Lake Tekapo, South Island 7945, NZ
ph: 800 275 373
Great upscale condo accommodation and tasty buffet breakfast option. The full kitchen is super for families or couples but if you want to cook don’t forget to stock up on groceries before you arrive because there is not a grocery store for miles.
63 Andrews Rd 7 Doc Wells Lane
Queenstown, Otago 9300, NZ
Queenstown town has tons of motels and hotels, but we found a super Two-bedroom air B and B that was just great and within walking distance of Queenstown. Parking is scarce in Queenstown and expensive so if you have a vehicle, ensure you get accommodation that offers parking.
Milford Sound Lodge
State Highway 94 Milford Sound, NZ
Milford Sound is truly breathtaking World Heritage Sight and home of Fiord lands National Park. It is a must see but very remote. You can stay about 50 km away in the nearest town of Te Anau but if you can, try to get a reservation for camping or accommodation at the Milford Sound Lodge. Reservations are a MUST as the Milford Sound Lodge is the only hotel/motel in town.
