The quarantine-free travel zone between Australia and New Zealand is almost a month old.
Since April 19, families and friends have been able to freely able to fly between the two countries with little disruption and many predict demand will only grow with confidence.
While a lot of attention has been given to air travel, one lettings company has been looking at a different kind of transtasman traffic: web searches.
Since 6 April, Airbnb searches by Australian holiday planners looking at Kiwi baches have quadrupled.
Driving this demand are tourism favourites such as Queenstown, which saw by seven times as many searches by Australian ski fiends and Airbnb hunters since the opening of the bubble. While the adventure capital was number one on Australians' wish lists, the top five were rounded out by urban hubs Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington and searches for relaxed, Kiwi baches in Northland.
Kiwi searches in the opposite direction have also bounced back, though to a more modest extent.
Searches for Australian Airbnbs by New Zealanders is now 150 per cent higher than it was a month ago.
Number one on the wish list was Sydney, with the NSW city seeing three times as many searches since the bubble opened. This was followed closely by 'second city' Melbourne and sunny Queensland dominated the rest of the top five, with the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast.
A new addition to the top 10 was Hobart, with the arrival of direct Tasmania air links fueling Kiwis' curiosity.
This search data has backed up the early quarantine-free flight numbers on both sides of the Ditch.
In April, TIA chief executive Chris Roberts reported that in the first week of a travel bubble there had been 30,000 arrivals versus 20,000 departures at New Zealand airports. While this represents just 20 per cent of the yearly average for April.
"While we may be rivals on the cricket pitch and rugby field, there's clearly no hesitation when it comes to exploring each other's backyards," said Susan Wheeldon, New Zealand and Australia country manager for Airbnb.
While Airbnb is currently tracking transtasman searches with interest, New Zealanders (and some Australians) are already looking for self-catered holiday on the Cook Islands, ahead of its own safe-travel bubble next week.
However, the Cook Island's Tourism Industry Council say there may not be the same choice of accommodation that there was before the travel shutdown. With many rooms coming off Airbnb.
"There have been a few homes that were renting short term that have moved to long term," said Liana Scott, president of the Cook Islands TIC. "These therefore would come out of the market pool until perhaps next year. Unfortunately they just could not hold on any longer and had financial obligations that needed to be met."
Wheeldon said Airbnb hosts will be "looking forward to rolling out their welcome mats and helping to bring valuable tourism dollars to businesses throughout the Cook Islands."

It appears quite a lot of us got a dog last year, and could do with a long de-stress in a hot tub.
By far the top searched feature was "pet friendly" accommodation, up three places since last year. Second most important feature was a Jacuzzi, which had risen four places in search rankings.
This year Kiwis are less bothered with laundry (down three places) while taking short stays, and are more willing to eat out with kitchen and cooking facilities dropping two places to fourth priority.
