Whether you are planning to visit New Zealand or you live here and want to see more of the country, this is the book to help you decide where to go, and where to stay. It's a photographic celebration of 21 of New Zealand's most interesting 'homes away from home', and a record of the diverse and often impressive landscapes that surrounds them. Reviewing director Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings, a movie critic wrote, 'If locations were awarded Oscars, New Zealand would scoop the lot'. The many different places to stay shown and described in detail are some of the country's most interesting and unusual. Grand or simple, large or small, contemporary or traditional, the only things they have in common are that each one is original, and character-full.
