We were introduced to Kristin through a mutual acquaintance when we were looking for a smaller sized property management company that would look after and manage bookings for our holiday home in Mt Maunganui. We had used larger holiday management companies before but were seeking a more personalized boutique company and Time in a Place seemed the perfect match.

Right from the moment we met Kristin we had a strong sense that she would look after our Bach as though it was her own. We asked for a three month trial but after the first few weeks of managing a few bookings we knew we had found the right person. We have never had any reason to doubt Kristin’s ability to manage our home.
Her team of cleaners are brilliant and our Bach is always immaculate, Kristin is always on the ball with queries and questions that we have and guests are always happy with the service that she provides. She is very professional and friendly not only to us but more importantly to our guests. Kristin’s three month trial was never questioned.
Time in a Place is a small, well managed and professional company that I would have no problem recommending to holiday home owners that need peace of mind and assurance that their homes are being well cared for and guests have everything that they need for a great holiday experience.

Having not rented our property out short term before we engaged Kristin from Time in a Place to manage the whole process for us. We have found her to be extremely helpful and professional in her attention to detail and her response to any queries have been dealt with promptly.

We would highly recommend her to anyone needing a property manager.

I’m very happy with the way Kristin manages our holiday home rental in Papamoa. She did a great job setting up the property on both the Airbnb and Bookabach websites – she organised the photographer and wrote an effective and appealing description highlighting the best features of our home.

I really appreciate Kristin’s proactive style, where she makes useful suggestions on things we could do to improve our home’s appeal and on ways to market it more effectively.

Most importantly, Kristin is very personable, friendly, cooperative and flexible, which I see as crucial since she deals directly with guests from the moment they first make an enquiry right through to the end of their stay. The positive interactions that guests will have with Kristin are an important part of their overall holiday experience and will encourage them to return in the future and to leave positive website reviews – and of course, as the home owners, we also find her great to deal with!

I fully recommend Kristin to anyone looking for a holiday home manager in whom they can have full confidence.

We have been delighted with the help Kristin has provided in preparing us for renting the beach house out. She has put our families mind at ease with the tenants she has found for our property. Kristin’s communication and quick response to any maintenance required at the property has been appreciated. Right from the beginning Kristin has been a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anybody looking for a property manager.
