In the shadow of Auckland’s famed Sky Tower (close enough to hear the screams of the Sky Jumpers!) and just 5 blocks from the water, this apartment is one of the best finds in all of my travels, Altitude Auckland. With a stay of 7 nights or longer, this two-bedroom penthouse apartment called the “Sky Deck” in the Altitude building can be had for less than $100 a night. While the apartment itself is small in size, the million-dollar views from the wrap-around deck complete with picnic table and hot tub are worth three times the price. This is my favorite place to stay in the city since I happened upon it 3 years ago. In fact, I hesitate to post this one at all since I want it to be available the next time I head to New Zealand! I won’t post detailed information here, but if you catch me in a generous mood, I might be willing to provide it by email to RTWin30days subscribers.
