Auckland accomodation


Just trying to get an idea of the market...

If you were looking at coming to NZ / Auckland - would a private bush retreat style Airbnb , with sea views, 2 mins walk to beach, only 35km to city centre appeal or would you be more interested in being closer to the city?

Hi Eva,

Depends upon your interests, and how long you are staying in Auckland. If this accommodation is at the end of a lengthy visit, a bush setting and close to a private beach would appeal very much.

If you are arriving into Auckland and have never visited this city before I would be inclined to stay as close to the harbour-CBD as possible because that's where transport to the city attractions stems from.

Depends on location as well. If it is a west coast Auckland area, set in native bush and close to a west coast beach, this area is not too far to drive into the CBD. But if it is a location south of Maraetai and nearer to Kawakawa Bay, the routes to get into the CBD require more navigation/driving.

Where exactly is it? 35 km out of the city could be a real pain on public transport!

Might be okay if you just wanted to hang out there and not do much otherwise I would suggest the city centre.
