Situated on South Island, Christchurch is known as the Garden City. It is the third-biggest city in New Zealand and features spectacular surroundings full of lush greenery. Several structures of exquisite Neo-Gothic architecture make up Christchurch's center. Outdoor enthusiasts will relish all of the adrenalin-pumping activities they can enjoy here including rugby, cycling, snorkeling, hiking, and sea kayaking while nature lovers will fall for the numerous picture-perfect coastal trails, parkland pathways, and the variety of marine life indigenous to the region. If you need a break from all your active adventures, you can always spend a day relaxing in a Christchurch spa. Fine dining, great entertainment, and a buzzing nightlife also add to Christchurch's diversity.

A vacation rental is an option that's second to none. A few of the choices to consider include a home close to countryside, an apartment in the city center, or condo on the city's outskirts.
