Holiday homes

You are here

Holiday home accommodation is a fantastic option if you're travelling as a group or value having your own space and self-catering facilities.

The tradition of owning a holiday home is strong in New Zealand. In the North Island the local word for holiday home is ‘bach’ (pronounced ‘batch’); in the South Island it's ‘crib’.

Renting a privately-owned holiday home is a great way to be self-sufficient. No two homes are the same, and they range from simple cottages by the sea to luxurious lodges in the mountains. And compared to a hotel or motel, you’ll have a lot more living space to enjoy. 

Our holiday home listings include some of New Zealand’s most idyllic locations. Browse carefully to get the location and level of comfort you want.
