Taking a vacation to an exotic place doesn't have to break the bank. These cheap weekend getaways to North Island in New Zealand will have you still living the good life in some very nice, but still affordable accommodations. Cozy up in a cabin rental near the Bay of Plenty or enjoy the views from the window of your cottage rental near the Waiui Falls and the Kauri Forest. It doesn't take a lot of money to enjoy the luxury of vacation like private balconies, beautifully landscaped gardens, shared pools, hot tubs, and game rooms. Those ready to get out an explore can do so by taking a hike down the Mangorewa River, eating at the variety of restaurants nearby or playing a round of golf at the Te Puke Golf Club.
