My family intends to go for a holiday in NZ for about 2 weeks in November. We would want to try out various types of lodging such as boutique hotel, service apartments, home stay and farm stay if possible. We are thinking of spreading out our travel to Auckland, Lake Taupo, Christchurch and Queenstown. We may also consider putting up at Lake Tecapo or one of those famous bays around Auckland if there are enough attractions. Typically we will stay 2~4 nights at each of those places depending on the attraction and logistics.
Essentially, our idea is to spend more time at some quality and attractive places instead of covering all corners at one go. This way we believe we could enjoy and relax more.
Hope some of you could share your experiences as well as suggest some good places to stay.
