Wanaka was the second-most popular destination in the country this holiday season and Queenstown was eighth on the list, according to a rental company's figures.

Bookabach's data were based on the number of nights booked at a destination via its website between December 1 and January 11.

Whangamata took out first place for the fifth year in a row, with Wanaka, Mangawhai Heads, Whitianga, Mt Maunganui, central Taupo, Raglan, Queenstown and Onetangi and Oneroa, both on Waiheke Island, making up the top 10.

Bookabach chief executive Peter Miles said the average price for renting a holiday home in one of the top 10 destinations had increased 5 per cent to $326 a night, with luxury properties in Queenstown and on Waiheke Island commanding an average price of at least $440 a night.
