The harbor city of Auckland is one of the top destinations in New Zealand and for many great reasons. Its urban landscape has a vibrant art scene, and its culture and history are preserved well in museums such as the Auckland War Memorial Museum. Guests also get easy access to beautiful beaches, charming rural landscapes, the biodiverse Hauraki Gulf, and even the Great Barrier Reef if you wish to venture a little farther. You can also indulge in cosmopolitan cuisine crafted with nothing but the freshest produce, then wash it all down with authentic New Zealand wine. The city is also very pet-friendly, and you might want to bring your pet as a travel companion. You need a great accommodation that would welcome your pet if that’s the case. Here’s our list of the best pet-friendly Airbnbs in Auckland, New Zealand, that will help make your journey memorable.
