Villas & Apartment Stays


    Self catering options whether apartment, villa or farmhouse are perfect for the Kiwi traveller looking to live like a local or get off-the-beaten-track and enjoy a slow holiday.

    5 Top Reasons for Self Catering:

    1. Value for money – especially for families or groups
    2. More space – not just a small hotel room
    3. Laundry facilities – great if you are overseas for a long trip
    4. Cooking facilities – a great reason to buy produce from the local market
    5. Outdoor Living – your own pool and outdoor terrace for alfresco dining

    Villas and farmhouses are typically a week long option and usually only booked Saturday to Saturday whilst apartment stays in cities are perfect if you are staying longer than 3 nights. Most of the top cities offer good apartments including Paris, London, Berlin, Rome, New York, Vancouver and many others.
