10 Best Affordable Airbnbs Under 75 USD In Queenstown, New Zealand - Updated 2024

| 5 min read

Any photo you’ve seen of a meadow on a postcard is likely shot in New Zealand. Its luscious greeneries make it the perfect location for epic films such as Lord of the Rings. To describe this place as “picturesque” is an understatement. The town of Queenstown is no different. This scenic place in the Otago region of South Island embodies a serene vibe. However, it leaves room for adventure-seekers to go skiing and the city folks to enjoy the laid-back urban atmosphere that it also offers. If you plan to spend a few nights in this Maori-rooted region without breaking your bank, scroll down for the best affordable Airbnbs under 75 USD in Queenstown, New Zealand.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 19, 2024.
