Since launching our new guest website in June, we've been seeing record setting months for bookings across the business! Our bookings over ski season have been closing in on the peaks we traditionally only see in the height of summer! Fantastic news all round that investing in our new guest booking site has been welcomed so well in the marketplace. You'll be glad to know it is being complemented by some good recent coverage and partnerships.

1. Bachcare feature in Kia Ora magazine

Bachcare Air New Zealand

If you were on an Air New Zealand flight in October, you may have come across an interview with our founder and managing director Leslie Preston. It covers off the humble beginnings of Bachcare managing just 5 properties in Hahei in 2004, to now being NZ's #1 holiday home company now managing over 1,600 properties! Pictured in the magazine is Pacific Beachfront - a stunning Hot Water Beach property recently added to our collection! You can see the listing here for the full gallery -

2. Banana Boat Ocean Swim Series - official accommodation partner


We love supporting 100% kiwi owned and operated businesses, so when Ocean Swim Series founder Scott Rice approached us about becoming the new accommodation partner for this event, we instantly felt it was a good fit. 

With 7 events across New Zealand, it spotlights many outstanding locations around the country. For full details you can see more here at the Ocean Swim website. With over 2.5 million visitors to their site every year and plenty of digital and event activity, we are sure to get a neat lift in brand awareness among guests who are keen amateur sports fanatics! 

3. Our Coromandel Magazine 2017/18 edition


We were stoked to be approached by Our Coromandel magazine who wanted to cover Matarangi Beach Retreat and interview its owners, Mark & Diane Bedford as part of their 2017/18 edition. It's a wonderful piece and we're very appreciative to Mark and Diane for accepting the interview and allowing the magazine a glimpse into their life, their stunning property and how it is working with us here at Bachcare. For the full magazine you can view it here - Our Coromandel Magazine, and Matarangi Beach Retreat can be discovered here.
