South Island Accommodation Recommendations

South Island Accommodation Recommendations

Back your backyard and support kiwi businesses.

Over the years, Turboweb has worked with a bunch of great kiwi businesses in the tourism and hospitality sector. Check out these amazing places to stay in the South Island and discover a new corner of our mighty little country.

From large motels with luxury apartments to cute little bed and breakfasts, there’s something here to suit everyone, and they’ve all got some amazing pricings on offer. We’ve grouped them by geographical area, so scroll down to find your next cosy escape. 

Most of our accommodation providers can give the best price for locals when you make a booking directly with them, rather than using the 3rd-party booking functions embedded in their websites. So, although those embedded options are super-convenient, right now we're strongly recommending that you visit the websites to check them out and grab their contact details, and then pick up the phone and call them directly.

Treat yourself to a weekend away – there’s never been a better time to do it.

 

Dunedin and surrounding areas

Come visit Dunedin, a UNESCO world heritage city of literature. Dunedin has so much to offer with beautiful Botanic Gardens, historic buildings and walks, bustling cafes and restaurants, and of course the Otago University and Polytechnic. Even if you're a Dunedin local, why not treat yourself to a quiet retreat that's not too far from home?

A short drive will take you to the spectacular Otago Peninsula where you can get up close with wildlife like albatrosses and yellow-eyed penguins, visit the historic disappearing gun at Fort Taiaroa, or just get away from it all in a sleepy seaside cottage.

Turboweb build great accommodation websites.

If you've got accommodation that you rent out to travellers or tourists, have you thought about getting your own website to advertise it?

Relying on third-party sites such as AirBnB or Book-a-Bach to list your place is a great way to get started, but having your own website gives you total control over your pricing and advertising options, including having your own URL to share on social media and other platforms.

We can integrate with most third-party booking platforms to let your website visitors book directly that way, or we can work with you to develop an online booking-enquiry form and even set up a payment portal for you.

Talk to Turboweb about your new accommodation website today.
