Top 10 Long-Term Rentals In Auckland, New Zealand

| 6 min read

Auckland became a colony in the 19th century and has since only seen upward growth. Today, this city in New Zealand is a multicultural hub of landscapes, art, ethnicities, music and food, attracting travellers by the hordes. While you can explore the incredible landscapes at one of the 26 regional parks, such as the nearby Duder Regional Park and Āwhitu Peninsula, you can remain closer to the city centre and visit Kohimarama or Mission Bay. Alternatively, you can plan a day trip to the nearby islands in Hauraki Gulf, including Rotoroa Island and Tiritiri Matangi Island. With that said, it might be worth planning an extended stay in the city to make the most of your time here. You will find several comfortable and equipped accommodations where you can stay for a long period of time. Scroll down to book the top long-term rentals in Auckland, New Zealand.
