I 2012 we did a month stay in Europe with a one week cruise and the rest of the time in Barcelona, Venice and Florence at AIRBNB's. We had a wonderful experience with our hosts through AIRBNB and are looking forward to a similar experience when we travel to NZ.
We are flying to Queenstown on May 22 and staying there until May 28 then driving to Dunedin and will stay there until June 3. We will rent a car and drive up the coast to Oamaru and then on the Christchurch. We fly from Christchurch on June 12 to Auckland and we will stay in Auckland until June 19 when we fly back to the USA.
This is a once in a lifetime trip for us and we are very excited to see NZ with all it has to offer.
We prefer firm but comfortable beds with private bathrooms.
We are not terribly fussy about our accommodations and have found AIRBNB very helpful in finding very nice places to stay.
We are not early risers in the morning and take our time getting from place to place which you need to do when you retire together.
