It's awards season in Hollywood and all the celebrities are out and about strutting heir stuff in the most extravagant of attire, celebrating their success on the big screen. Well, we think itâ€™s time we recognise some of our famous villas!
For ‘best in a television series or blockbuster movie’…and the nominees are...
Wyuna House for 'use of territory in Lord Of The Rings'
4 bedroom | 5 bathroom | 8 people max | From NZ$175 pp, per night*
Wyuna is set amongst the iconic 'middle earth' territory in Glenorchy where numerous Lord of the Rings scenes were filmed. The endless amount of beauty in the diverse landscape can be appreciated from inside Wyuna House, where the interiors complement the surroundings as you look through the large bay windows. With cladding in local schist and cedar plus timber floors, walls and ceilings, this house has a warm lodge feel and sits harmoniously amongst its picturesque setting.
Hurakia Lodge for 'photo-shoot worthy backdrop on America's Next Top Model'
5 bedroom | 5 bathrooms | 10 people max | From NZ$250 pp, per night*
Hurakia Lodge was chosen to showcase the beauty of New Zealand to the American market. The lodge sits on Rakino Island and has magnificent views of Waiheke Island and Auckland city in the near distance. The villa features wide open areas and floor to ceiling windows to maximise the feeling of space, as well as being able to fully absorb the stunning scenery.
Bridgeview Luxury Apartment for 'being host to Germany's Next Top Model'
Viaduct Apartment | 2 bedroom | 2 bathroom | 4 people max | From NZ$460 pp, per night*
It only made sense for a gorgeous property to host to the gorgeous German Next Top models, so Bridgeview Luxury Apartment was the top pick. Auckland central, stunning viaduct, city and harbour bridge views plus divine interiors.
It's no wonder that the apartment is currently being leased out long term... luckily we also have the Viaduct Apartment which is situated in the same building as Bridgeview and offers the same deluxe feel and views.
Te Hihi Estate for 'supporting stage in the X-Factor New Zealand 2015'
5 bedroom | 5 bathroom | 10 people max | $920 pp, per night*
Spoiler alert: When the judges of X-Factor have their 'home auditions', the properties aren't their actual homes.
It's become expected that the judges home auditions are at extravagant properties that 'wow' viewers to create an illusion of how the celerity judges must live.
Te Hihi Estate has copious amount of 'wow'. From the outdoor fire, swimming pool, to the onsite golf course, tennis court, gym and private spa. The villa itself boasts french-country styling with home comforts.
