Ideal for the budget traveller who wants to make friends and get to know a place.
This is suited to families and those who are looking for a slightly longer stay on more flexible terms. 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’). No two bachs are the same, and they range from simple cottages to luxurious lodges.
