Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbor

“If you’re staying in Auckland I would suggest the gorgeous Sofitel on Viaduct Harbor. You can get bay-view rooms and have easy access to the ferry. It’s a beautiful hotel with incredible waterfalls as you walk in and an amazing staff.”  —  Parson James

La Bodega Waiheke Island Accomodation

“If possible, you should try to stay in Waiheke Island at least one night. Stay at La Bodega Bed & Breakfast. It’s one of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever stayed. It’s run by a very lovely couple who have traveled to New Zealand following a dream of running a hotel. It’s modern and sleek with restoration hardware type decor and rooms with humongous open windows that face all the nature/ocean and beauty of the country.”  —  Parson James
