We purchased our house in Pukehina in April 2017 and then returned to Austria to tie up a myriad of ends. Prior to leaving NZ, we were extremely lucky to have received a recommendation to use the services of Beach Rentals and it was the best thing we did. Shelley and her team were able to find tenants and were then faced immediately with organizing and co-ordinating extensive unexpected major renovations to the house. The whole process has been dealt with very professionally and efficiently. The disadvantage of not been on the spot in person to see how work is progressing is barely felt, as we have been receiving constant updates and photos which are very welcomed and appreciated. We have the feeling that Beach Rentals have our interests and those of our tenants very much at heart and are more than pleased to strongly recommend the competent and friendly services of Beach Rentals.

Testimonial for Bay of Plenty Beach Rentals:

The reasons why we chose beach rentals to advertise our family beach house at Pukehina was because:

We had heard good reports about them.

They are a small business, living right on the beach, with easy access for us to just pop in and ask any questions, or if there are any issues they are close by, and can respond quickly if necessary.

They are very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

As we live in another city, quite a distance from our holiday house, it is reassuring to have people we can trust that will keep an eye on it, and who are happy to tap into, and access, local contractors, to do the maintenance for the upkeep of the house.

They know the market to price it appropriately, to promote and advertise it for us. More importantly, they take the work and hassle away from us. We would be very happy to recommend their services to others.

Thank you. Denise and Keith Elliott.

I had the pleasure of signing up our home for a holiday rental management  contract with Shelley and Linda in January 2016 – and I am extremely pleased with the decision.  

Given we are based overseas – we needed a “turn-key” management solution to managing our Pukehina Home. The BeachRentals team have established an extremely professional offering and have always ensured the utmost care in selecting guests, ensuring the property is in perfect condition for the letting and maintain a high standard of upkeep on the house. They are proactive in ensuring the correct maintenance and health and safety standards are maintained.  To my mind, they do a great job for both owners and renters.  

I would have no hesitation in recommending Shelley and team for either homeowners or prospective holiday renters – the provide a great solution with friendly and warm service.

To whom it may concern

Beach Rentals have been managing our investment property since we purchased it.

We set the property up as a holiday rental and Shelly and Linda were very helpful in the initial stages offering us very sound advice as to what we need to do to ensure we received consistent holiday bookings.

They have provided us with a full management service which means they handle all enquiries and booking. They also greet our guest, arrange restocking of consumables and have the property cleaned once our guess vacate.

We have received 100% positive feedback from our guests and we are very happy with the level of bookings we have received to date.

We have no hesitation in recommending Beach Rentals to any property owner

Testimonial for Shelley McCarthy – Beach rentals Pukehina


My wife and I listed our property at Pukehina in May 2014 with Shelley and were, I think, one of her first customers.

From the outset Shelley was professional and very easy to deal with.  Photos of the residence were taken and advice given on anything we could do to make the property appealing to a prospective tenant.

She thoroughly vetted all applications and then recommended the ones that she thought met our and her criteria. All the issues regarding our responsibilities as landlords were fully explained as well as what we could expect regarding her role as our Agent.

Once the tenants had moved in she did inspections at the required interval and always sent us updated photos of the condition of the house and promptly bought up issues that needed dealing with by us or the tenant. The tenants she selected were absolutely model tenants and would still have been there if we hadn’t decided to sell our property.

Throughout the two and a half years she managed the property for us we were more than happy with her performance and would recommend her to anybody. Her professionalism as well as her cheerful nature makes her a joy to deal with.

We wish Shelley well with her future endeavours and believe she will continue to flourish in her business.

We are more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions regarding this
