Julia and Murray are experienced Motel Minders / Temporary Managers.

Having owned and operated a 14 unit Motel ourselves for many years we are now keen & available to provide minding or temporary management services to other motels.

Together we were fully hands-on and involved in all aspects of the Motel operation from guest services, reservations, payments, etc. to property management: from cleaning and servicing units to laundry, gardening, lawn mowing and pool & spa maintenance. Working closely with the housekeeping staff we ensure that presentation for guests is kept at the highest quality.

Since late 2018 we have undertaken various Motel minding/temporary management contracts completing all tasks of running the business. Our recent assignments have included a 23 unit Motel in Auckland, a 14 unit Motel in the Waikato and an 18 unit Motel in New Plymouth.

We are active, computer literate and quick to learn. Our experience includes use of MotelMate, Callista, Aurelian and Starfleet together with various channel management systems. Willing to take on any work required we pride ourselves on a high standard of guest service and Unit cleanliness.

Available for additional opportunities and challenges to assist you where possible (sorry, but due to the risk of lockdowns, we will only travel to North Island locations).

Please contact us anytime via email murrayfurness@outlook.co.nz
or phone: Julia 021 172 4605 or Murray 027 291 0222 for a friendly discussion.

We are a couple that are looking to make the best of our time after a very active life. We are from the Netherlands but have reside in NZ for over 15 years. We know that we are too good to stop doing what we are doing and that is being of service to a business group that needs to have a break of sorts for themselves. We are experienced minders and both have a lot of managerial experience due to our jobs in NL but also through minding here in the country.

Please have a look at our experiences and have a chat with us to find out what we can do for your business.

A CV will be sent on request if we know you are seriously interested in our services.

Looking forward to hear and see more of you and your businesses.

Our names are Shelagh and Ross Laird, we are based in the Central North Island. We have had over 12 years working in the Motel, Holiday Park and Tourism industry between us. It is a lifestyle and a job that we enjoy very much, we also enjoy travelling around New Zealand so we decided to combine the two by minding Motels and Holiday Parks while the owners go on much deserved breaks.

So far we have used Seekom, Callista, Aurelian, Strait Reservation, Reservation Master, Motel Mate and Park Mate booking systems and are very familiar with Kiwi card and Kiwi Parks, we are also very able to learn any other systems.

If required we have our own accommodation being a bus or a caravan depending on the motel /park and location. We are willing to assist staff with cleaning, maintenance, lawn mowing and many other tasks while you are away, Ross has his HT and Passenger licence, he has also worked with a lot of heavy machinery. We like to get stuck in and help around the accommodation as much as possible. We normally arrive the day before you leave - first day we arrive and set up, we go over the running of the motel/park with you, day two we are ready to work on our own. When you arrive back, we carry out hand over and discuss anything with you that we need to.

We have a facebook page Rollin Holiday Park Minders NZ. We are both computer literate and we learn systems very quickly. We pride ourselves with good customer service and we also take great pride in the work we do.

If you would like to discuss anything further with us you can contact us via the email above or by phoning 0275581771. As references you can phone Paul and Mandy at King’s Court Motel at Wanganui pH 06 345 8586 or Shelly and Julian at Opunake Beach Kiwi Holiday Park pH 06 761 7525. We will also be able to provide other references as well if required.
