Top 12 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Rangiora, New Zealand - Updated 2023

| 4 min read

There is a thing about travel — the smaller the town the better the experience. Rangiora, with an area of less than 20 square kilometers, is a satellite town of the largest city of the South Island of New Zealand, Christchurch. It has 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, spots to spread out a picnic blanket, and hiking trails that beckon exploration are what make it a great alternative destination, especially for those taking a break from the tours and things to do in Christchurch. There is nothing better than getting that sense of belonging in such a beautiful town. To have an immersive stay, check out these top Airbnb vacation rentals in Rangiora, New Zealand.

1. Landhuis Homestead (from USD 182)

Spend a holiday at the enchanting Landhuis Homestead cradled in a picturesque 20-acre (8.09-hectare) farm and homestead. The tranquil private garden and pond, along with the serene stream that winds down its verdant setting, invite you to explore its countryside charm.

Regardless of the season, this private house rental in Rangiora is a haven. A fabulous log burner, heat pump, and electric blankets are made available for chilly nights while the sheltered deck with grill is handy for summer adventures. Modern conveniences blend seamlessly at this dog-friendly property with the cozy ambiance, boasting a large kitchen and a living space with a smart TV. The basketball court on the premises is a major plus for those who wish to stay active.
