I have gotten a working holiday visa for New Zealand that is good for a year. I figure I will stay there for 6-9 months with the bulk of the time around Auckland. Does anyone know of nice, cheap, temporary housing?? Please help me out. I am leaving July, 20th 2005...

Thanks,

Mikie

you said youll be studying in auckland right?

you can rent an apartment by youself for about NZD$250-300 a week! or share accommodation thru ads in the paper for about $70-$100 week in or walking distance to the city.

it also depends on if you want to have a car or public transport.

look online at the nzhearld. i think its url is www.nzherald.co. but its only for auckland (strangely) every thursday i think it is they update their accommodation coloums.

hope that helps
