Being an overseas investor, Melanie is an indispensable partner for me. As the manager of my two commercial buildings in Wanaka she has truly gone above and beyond the standard day-to-day management of the properties.

Everything from arranging valuations, finding new tenants, organising renovations and advising on colour schemes and flooring solutions. Her deep network of contacts and goodwill in the community has proven incredibly valuable. On top of this is Melanie’s energy, proactiveness, attention to detail, and the fact that she always greets me with a smile. Melanie takes the stress out of owning commercial properties from afar. - Joran Laird Hong Kong


We purchased two properties and decided to treat this as our ‘superannuation’, rather than put savings into to a retirement fund. This was a huge commitment and we needed someone on the ground to manage them if this was going to work. Our first few years were really difficult and our managers were not satisfactory – in fact, we seriously considered quitting the project and selling up. Fortunately for us, a local business man who we had become friends with, suggested we try Accommodation Wanaka as he personally knew one of the managers there. The rest is history and we’ve never looked back.

Our main contact over the years has been with Melanie Moore – such a genuine person, a real delight and easy to work with. She is considered in her opinion and advice, but tells it like it is. Always good with the tenants, approachable, deals with any concerns they have and get things done in a timely manner. We generally visit Wanaka once a year and catch up with Melanie, the staff and our tenants.

Our regular contact is by email and phone; there are also the maintenance service inspections which are done on a programmed basis. We get a full report with photos, which is perfect. Financial statements are received fortnightly and end of year financials are provided. So, in a nutshell, thanks to Melanie and her team, managing our properties long distance isn’t a problem – we just leave it in her capable hands and know everything will be fine.

Living overseas it was key for me to find a Property Manager that I can relate to and trust to manage our property to the high standard in which it is built.  Upon meeting Melanie and her team, they gave me the comfort that they could not only do the job, but do it well.  They were thorough in the tenant vetting process and kept me in the loop throughout, giving me confidence they would find the right tenant, which they did. 

I am continually impressed with their communication, professionalism and pro activity to keep on top of maintenance issues from both tenant and landlord side.  Sue and Melanie are a pleasure to work with and often go out of their way to help get jobs done that fall outside of their normal scope of work, which is a huge help when living abroad.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Accommodation Wanaka as our experience has been nothing but great.

Such a great experience! From the house viewing to moving in, the whole process was straight forward and stress free. - Josie Gamble
Accommodation Wanaka arranged a fabulous 2 bed house in sunrise bay with access to shared spa, gym for the winter season. Melanie and her team were available and answered any questions we had pertaining to the house and local area. Her service was personal and professional we couldn’t have asked for a better person to listen and deliver a property to meet our needs. We have used Mel and Accommodation Wanaka again and highly recommend - Andrew Seavill
Melanie and Sue manage our home. They are efficient, professional, friendly and have never given us a reason to use any one else. We vacate our home for just over 4 months every winter and always return home to find it in great order. Communication with them is excellent as is the paper trail. We can highly recommend their services - Greg Napper
Sue and Accommodation Wanaka helped us into an awesome two bedroom for the winter. Sue was always available to answer any questions and was so helpful with getting us into our place. All around a great experience! - Jenna Bramble
Sue has been lovely, great to work with and super responsive, making the pre-winter move to Wanaka easy and stress free. - Emma McCombe Baker
Listing our property as a winter rental was a breeze with Sue and Melanie. Communication is excellent. They filled the tenancy very quickly and living out of town we have complete confidence that the property is being well managed. Happy to recommend. - Reuben Lindsay
As a landlord who doesn't live locally I'm totally reliant on Sue and the team to look after my asset and manage my tenants professionally. When they took on the business a few years ago I noticed an immediate uptick in the information I was getting and the care being taken. I'm completely confident that my house and its occupants are being well looked after. I'm particularly impressed by the effort Sue goes to to give me great advice of what to spend my maintenance budget on, to keep the house in good condition, enhance its attractiveness and keep my long term tenant happy. - Mike Gilbert
