We are looking for a hotel or vacation rental for one night on the 4th of Feb. 2011. We will be taking the 8:25am ferry to the south island on the 5th. I found some vacation rentals, but they are not in the downtown. Can someone give me an idea of the neighborhoods and which ones would be close to downtown and easy access to the ferry. Also, does anyone have any experience with car rentals that say you will leave your rental on the north and pick one up on the south?
Thanks for your help!
