New Zealand with its reputation for good old kiwi ingenuity knows how to create some quirky, appealing and great places to stay. These are scattered all over New Zealand. Prices range from high to low. What you get ranges from luxury to the simple life. Wondering how to find these places? Wanting a bit of detail about each place? Wanting to know the things which make each place unique and quirky as well as a price guide and the website contact details?

Here is a glimpse of what is available: There are yurts and tepees, safari tents and glamping sites.There are historic conversions – old miner’s huts, mills, banks, stone cottages from  the nineteenth century. There are romantic hideaways with candlelight and furs – no electricity, no disturbances. There are eco-retreats, rammed earth houses, mud brick cottages. There are more modern conversions – woolsheds, boat sheds, school houses, churches. There are fantastic creations that defy categorization – a cave, a modern day castle, a reclaimed  movie set, a hobbit house….

There are now three books available which will take you to these places, showing you where they are and what they offer. These books are  full of photos, – plenty of food for thought as you plan your next trip or a great reminder of where you stayed. Check out the books.
