Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Rangiora, New Zealand - Updated 2020

airbnb Rangiora, New Zealand

There is a thing about travels, it is that the smaller the town the better the experience. Rangiora, an area less than 20 square kilometers, and population under 20,000 is the ideal location for a small-town, simple-life experience. There really isn’t much to see, a few resorts, an old wooden church, a museum and that’s about it, but the charm comes from the greenery around, the spots to spread out a picnic blanket and the hiking trails that beckon exploration.

The town, a satellite town of the largest city of South Island of New Zealand, Christchurch, is originally a Maori settlement. But the beauty, unadulterated air and the pristine grazing lands around, inspired a Canterbury surveyor, Charles Obins Torlesse, to pitch his tents in 1851 and invite more Europeans to this little piece of paradise. This confluence of these two civilizations led to the development of this beautiful little town, where everything from the life to the meals and culture is simple but still culturally rich. There is nothing better than getting that sense of belonging in such a beautiful town, even if it is for a week! We present to you the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in Rangiora, that gives a chance to live a simple, meaningful life.

1. Kensington Palace (from USD 80)

A spacious and modern home, fit for a family and comes with two rooms for adults, one for the kids and a kennel for the dog. Best of all, you will enjoy cooking locally sourced ingredients and relishing homemade meals outdoors in the warmth of your garden. It may not be Maori, but it surely is Rangiora! The host’s parents, who can assist with the things-to-do in Rangiora, have enough experience in the town to share stories with your family!

Rangiora- a sunny and warm paradise!

A glimpse at these ten homes gives you an idea of the warmth this little, South Kiwi town exudes. It’s the best of both worlds really, with beaches and pastures! Its no Rome or Paris, but just the experience of sitting down with your family, cooking your own comfort food, and listening to the music of the town, it is pure bliss. You are sure to appreciate the town’s efforts in keeping it humble and interesting. It’s a small area packed with experience! If Rangiora isn’t on your list right now, it should!
