New Zealand Apartments is a collective group of similar style holiday apartment properties providing accommodation to international and domestic travellers or holiday makers throughout New Zealand.

Each apartment is available for a short term stay in exactly the same way you would book and stay in a hotel.
You can either book online or phone the central reservation office in New Zealand to make an enquiry or booking for any of the properties within the group.

Below is a list of what to generally expect from a New Zealand Apartment. For full details please refer to individual property pages on our website. Each property is unique in style and location so slight variations occur.
