What we do


We manage a luxury accommodation portfolio of apartments and villas in Queenstown’s most popular locations. Holiday & Visitor Reservations, Property Management and Cleaning services are all performed under one roof by our own Staysouth inhouse staff. 

All the properties we manage are Queenstown based and individually owned by absentee owners who want to be able to use their property when they visit queenstown and have it maintained and earning income when they are not in residence.

We take the hassle out of your Visitor Accommodation Resource Consent and Queenstown Lakes District Council compliance requirements. We will take care of all compliance issues on your behalf as well as keeping you updated on changes within council regulations.

We enjoy a reputation of delivering high levels of service and owner satisfaction. 

No one knows a town like the locals do. We are a passionate and dedicated team who are all long-term Queenstowners with unparalleled knowledge and experience of the best that Queenstown has to offer.


We are a cohesive, modern property management team and are regularly on-site in our owners' properties, ensuring they are maintained to the highest standards. All our management processes are systemised and our point of difference is the attitude we bring to our workplace. We are verse with the Unit Titles Act and regularly deal with Body Corporates, often representing our owners at AGMs and Committee meetings. We treat our property owners, many whom have been with Staysouth for over 10 years with respect and we pride ourselves on providing prompt communication and a progressive attitude to problem-solving. Our accounting department provides transparent and detailed owners' returns.

Our team is available by phone seven days a week and we have long-term, established relationships with a core group of the very best service providers and tradespeople who always give us priority when under delivery pressure. We enjoy the company of the people we work with and guarantee the delivery of top-quality property management - service with a smile.


Staysouth (formerly known as Mariko Holdings) commenced business in 2006 and has built up many years of experience in successfully renting luxury apartments, villas and luxury complexes in Queenstown.  We have an extensive online web marketing programme which ensures a high level of occupancy for our owners and we pride ourselves as being market leaders;

  • Ongoing monitoring of market conditions and regular amendment of overnight rates both up and down via dynamic pricing algorithms to ensure competitive rates to guests, maximising profit to owners and therefore the best possible occupancy.
