Make a holiday rental property or accommodation in New Zealand’s North Island your home away from home

It is hard to know where to start with New Zealand’s North Island. It is a stunningly beautiful island, home to the large cosmopolitan cities of Auckland and Wellington, the adventure sports centres of Rotorua and Taupo and the stunning serenity of regions like the East Cape, Napier Bay and the Whangerei region. Whenever you travel to New Zealand you will receive such a warm welcome that you are tempted to up sticks and buy a New Zealand property to live in full time! It is a country of hugely diverse landscapes which are steeped in Maori legend, from the steaming craters of the Te Whakarewarewa to the sub tropical rainforests of the Bay of Islands.

Things to do on holiday in New Zealand’s North Island

New Zealand is a country where sport and active living is paramount. Everywhere you go, the great outdoors are the playground for locals and visitors alike, and even the cities are filled with bungee jumping sites, huge arenas and enough entertainment to keep anyone lucky enough to be staying in New Zealand accommodation happy for quite some time. Around the coastal regions, water sports thrive, from activities like sailing and windsurfing to swimming with dolphins or scuba diving. However, the beaches that surround the coast are perfect for quiet beach holidays, secluded from the rest of the world if this is what you wish for from a New Zealand property.

The mainland is ideal for walking and cycling, through magnificent scenery which you would be hard pushed to beat for shear beauty. Across New Zealand’s North Island you will be able to find golf courses, tennis courts and large parks, and depending on the exact location of your New Zealand holiday rental, you could try black water rafting (white water rafting in the pitch black of a cave!), zorbing, bungee jumping, sky diving or any manner of sports, both known and unknown!

There is more to taking property in New Zealand’s North Island, than getting a fix of adrenaline. Travel guides of New Zealand are filled with an enormous number of points of interest, as the country’s development has been staggeringly well documented, as a result of the relatively recent colonization and the great respect with which the indigenous people have been treated with, leaving an unrivalled combination of historical and mythical places of interest available to tour.

Places to holiday in New Zealand’s North Island

Beach holidays and holidays to remote properties in New Zealand’s North Island can be taken with ease, as there are endless beaches from which to choose from. The beaches of the Bay of Islands are some of the most popular places to take holiday accommodation in New Zealand, but surfers who travel to New Zealand will be best taking accommodation on the west coast of the island.

Auckland is a great city, and even if you take a New Zealand holiday rental elsewhere, it is worth taking a few hours to investigate the city a little bit. The famous skyline is not simply aesthetic, as you can climb the Auckland Tower for great views, bungee jump off Auckland Bridge or abseil down a number of the larger buildings. The marina is filled with multi-million pound yachts, and is surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the country.

Weather in New Zealand’s North Island

The New Zealand summer is blissfully hot, despite its location in the world. Average temperatures in December, January and February average around 25°C, with daily peaks in the mid 30’s. Winter can be cold, with temperatures dipping to around 6°C.

Travel to New Zealand’s North Island

Flying from Britain, you will arrive into Auckland International Airport (AKL). There are flights to Auckland from London Heathrow (LHR), having stopped over in Singapore (SIN), Los Angeles (LAX) or Kuala Lumpur (KUL).

Lovely property with everything you would need.

4 of 5
Annie was a great host. The house is great and very comfortable. It has a beautiful view and a lovely balcony to sit on. If you are a walker you can go on the track to Russell. It's 4 sections and they are 35 mins each. You need to be equiped and maybe get someone to drive you back. We did the first part and enjoyed it. The car ferry is very close but allow for delays in peak season. We preferred Long Beach for swimming. Overall we would recommend Annie and Aimeo Cottage and we all enjoyed our week long stay. Jan 2018.

Enjoyed our two nights here, friendly host, clean and well equipped with a great view. Good value but a steep drive to walk up to our car on the street. Thanks for having us.
