The best Airbnbs in Auckland

Auckland has some of the best Airbnbs and we’re semi-obsessed (let’s be real, head over heels in love) with these secret city dwellings that go above and beyond. Whether it’s luxury embodied, breathtaking views or something a little unexpected, we’ve got you covered.

And we’ve got you covered too, so without further ado, here’s the best Airbnbs Auckland has to offer.

Best Airbnbs in the Viaduct

Princess Pier Gem

LOWER CBD 4 guests | 1 bedroom

Spacious but with the little details to make it cozy too, we love the view from this absolutely luxurious apartment. To your right you will see the iconic Auckland Ferry building and its buzzing city center, and to your left the sparkling waters of Waitematā Harbor.

Building with city view

Lower CBD 2 guests | 1 bedroom

Enjoy a private room in this living apartment with a common shelf and a balcony with a view of the sea and succulents. Guests also have access to a swimming pool, sauna, spa, fitness center and tennis court. Walk down the road to reach the viaduct, or venture out to find yourself at the base of the Sky Tower.

Penthouse Quartier Wynyard

Lower CBD 4 guests | 2 bedrooms

The textures, patterns and colors that went into this indulgent penthouse apartment are inspired. We bet you’re so ready to relax on the private patio and take in the city views, and with parking, pool, spa, sauna, and gym, you won’t need to leave… but if you do, you’re within walking distance of the Viaduct’s best bars, restaurants and cafes.

Best Airbnbs in the Big City of Auckland

PIHA 4 guests | 2 bedrooms

Cozy, beautifully designed and soaked in nature, and with a fireplace for the winter months and an outdoor bath for the summer, you can enjoy this jewel of Piha all year. Tired of exploring walking trails or hitting the beach, then find a spot on the deck and marvel at the sunset over Lion Rock.

Chalet Kauri

Titirangi 2 Guests | 1 bedroom

Surrounded by native bush this serene nature chalet is a short drive from the beautiful black sand beach of Karekare Beach. It’s perfect for a romantic getaway, a refreshing getaway for best friends, or for pampering yourself in nature.

GRAY LYNN / PONSONBY 4 guests | 2 bedrooms

This private wing near Ponsonby Road is absolutely enchanting. Resembling something from Alice in Wonderland, this private wing features two bedrooms, a covered patio, and a private lawn. Continental breakfast, tea, coffee and ‘treats’ are included.

Relax in the Coatesville countryside at this luxurious country villa, affectionately known as the Small house. Enjoy sumptuous decor and panoramic views over a glass of champagne (or two).

A slice of paradise

Takapuna 2 people | 1 bedroom

It’s all about the summer atmosphere at Palm Studio. We love their beautiful hardwood floors, cute styling, and outdoor shower for washing off the sand (there’s another two meters inside too). Start the day with homemade granola and a Nespresso, then take a 90-second stroll along glorious Takapuna Beach.

Near the lake

MILFORD 2 guests | 1 bedroom

Perched on the shores of Lake Pupuke, this private bedroom and bathroom, with its own entrance, has a garden sauna and an energizing spa bath. You read that right: a sauna AND a spa bath. You may even have a fluffy little visitor, Ollie, the host’s curious and friendly cat. Adorable!

CHELTENHAM 4 guests | 2 bedrooms

Happy and by the sea, with a breathtaking view of the mighty Rangitoto, this beautiful space is the next level. With a great location everything is within walking distance: stroll along Cheltenham Beach, climb North Head or stroll through Devonport Township. We relax just by writing about it.

Victorian Seaside Villa

Devonport 2 hosts | 1 bedroom

They got us to ‘room in a superb victorian villa‘. Add to that the fact that it was built in 1906 and has a claw foot tub, yes, please. Just two minutes from the ferry, you have easy access to Auckland’s CBD, but you might just want to lounge in the lush tropical resort-style pool and garden instead.

The Boat House

BAYSWATER 2 people | 1 bedroom

Retaining the details of its former boathouse life, The Boat House is both nautical and nourishing. Enjoy the sea (which literally washes down to your doorstep) or jump over the fence to the pool. Do you want to venture out? Bayswater is halfway between Devonport Township and Takapuna, so the world is your oyster (we had to).

Best Airbnbs in Auckland with Pool

RIVER PATH 2 people | 1 bedroom

Located on an equestrian lifestyle property this ridiculously beautiful guesthouse has some significant fantasy date vibes for Bachelorette and we live for it. The interior styling is impeccable with polished wood floors, plus there’s a huge pool, hammock for lounging, and a cozy outdoor fireplace that just screams s’mores. If you’re fed up (will you do it though?) A short walk will take you to Riverhead Forest.

Resort lifestyle

NORTHCOTE 4 people | 1 bedroom

This refuge (main article image above) not only has a swimming pool, there is also a spa pool, a children’s play area and not one, but two trampolines. Admire the view of the sea and the city and share a delicious meal around the outdoor table. Oh, and the pool lights up so that at night you can live out your neon mermaid fantasy.

Downtown shrine

Gray Lynn 9 guests | 4 bedrooms

This spacious and bright house overlooking Gray Lynn Park, there is enough swimming pool for everyone and it is heated. Make use of the vegetable patch and fruit trees, and delight in being a temporary caregiver of a parlor turtle called Feisty.

EAT EAST 16 guests | 9 bedrooms

With a name like that, you’d expect something epic, and that’s exactly what this character villa delivered. For starters, it’s huge with nine rooms. We dig the lanai and the monochrome bathroom is exquisite.

Welcoming guest rooms

Mangere 2 Guests | 1 bedroom

So much thought has gone into shaping this friendly and inclusive stay. All ethnicities are welcome, it’s LGBTQIA + friendly, and there is an abundance of vegan gluten-free breakfast options. The house is not on a flight path, ensuring a restful stay, and the host has a friendly cat called Strawberry who obviously wins hearts.

Oasis In The Bridge

Mangere 2 Guests | 1 bedroom

Formerly reserved only for the family, this luxury guesthouse at Mangere Bridge is sure to refresh you. Whether you want to do a little extra work before your flight or stretch your legs in the open air with a stroll around the neighboring farm, this place won’t disappoint.

Nice loft with lots of plants, a Persian rug and a loft bed - complete with ladder. Urban Jungle Apartment

CBD 3 guests | 1 bedroom

Pinterest is real, folks. And it takes the form of this pretty apartment like a painting, with abundant vegetation, macrame and loft-style bedding. We love that it takes its inspiration from the subtropical rainforest of Auckland’s west coast while being in the heart of Auckland city.

Green urban getaway

West Lynn 2 Guests | 1 bathroom

Two words: talkative stream. This elegant ground floor apartment, with private access, is just lovely. Relax on the beanbags to watch native birds flit through the forest just steps from the bridge. Special mention has to go to the pretty deep artwork in the bathroom, a self-affirming mantra for “Be-you-tiful.”

Apartment Loft Anzac Nord

CBD 8 guests | 4 bedrooms

A color palette of cedar, ocher, and crushed blue velvet brings a kind of soothing charm to this beautifully large apartment. The luminous bubbles in the living room are a bit whimsical and we can already see a group of our friends meeting around canapes and a wine on the terrace.

Sophisticated white marble kitchen with bare light bulbs.Apartment Insta-Digne

MISSION BAY 7 guests | 2 bedrooms

It is sophisticated minimalism at its best with clean white walls that would make a great backdrop for the ‘Gram (just say). We love the accents of plants, coral and rooftop, and if the mesmerizing bathroom mirror with moon reflections appears in our dreams, we won’t be surprised.

Nestled in the trees

Maraetaï 2 guests | 1 bedroom

For something completely different, this treehouse just 300m from Maraetai beach could be a bit of you. We bet the queen-size memory foam mattress would be perfect for tired backs and legs, especially after a day exploring Duder and Omaha State Parks which are only a one-minute drive away. .

A little bit of heaven on earth

Whitford 5 guests | 2 bedrooms

If your idea of ​​a great getaway involves alpacas, look no further. This independent apartment, with private access, is on a four acre block, and yes, it is also home to a small herd of alpacas. Precious.
