Ownership Details

Whether you are looking for a holiday home for a few weeks a year or you spend time oversees and you need a spectacular hassle free property in New Zealand then Castaways Villas have been designed for you. All owners benefit from the income provided by The Resort’s letting of their property when they are not in residence.

The 125m2 two bedroom villas each sit on freehold titles with sizes varying from 400 to 1500m2 with an average of 800m2 with no boundary fences, elevated views and extensive native planting, a true spacious coastal setting has been achieved for all Villas.


The freehold titles are like any others however the services are commonly owned and are located on a service lot which all owners share and manage through an incorporated society.
 

The key to the low cost and hassle free ownership is allowing Castaways to let out the villa when not in use by the owner, now a proven system successfully operated by Castaways for over 16 years.

All villas are designed to operate as part of the resort when being let out or for independent living when an owner is in residence. The spacious, modern villas are comfortable for short stays or longer durations.
 

The management structure has been developed for minimal risk to the Investor, as in the unlikely event that Castaways were no longer able to manage and maintain the villas the Incorporate Society would then assume management giving owners total control.

Depending on the time you spend in residence, you can dictate a healthy financial return whilst enjoying a stunning location for your retreat.


The returns from letting your villa will net you 50% of the villa income after operational costs have been deducted.


Castaways has a very simple but fair system to calculate the return to a villa owner. We maintain a totally transparent system so all relevant details of income & outgoings are made available to the villa owner.

Our financial calculation in brief.

  • Guest income for each individual villa is calculated

  • 9% Resort Licence fee is deducted from income

  • 4% villa long term & 2% villa short term
    maintenance levy and a 2% Incorporated Society levy is deducted from income and is contributed to the respective funds.

  • All managements costs are deducted from income

  • 50% of surplus guest income is allocated to the Owner

  • 50% of surplus guest income is allocated to the Manager

  • Any Owners consumables and servicing costs are deducted from the Owners income. 

More details of the financial structure can be found in our management guide.


Our system does not guarantee a minimum income to either the owner or to the management company however it does allow an owner to share in the successes of the resort. This structure makes the letting process and resulting income fair for all parties involved and allows the owner some control of their income as this is largely governed by how often an owner is in residence.


Since 2002 through the highs and lows of New Zealand’s economic fluctuations, Castaways Resort is proud to say they have continually delivered a profitable return to all existing chalet owners.


The Resort believes in a fair and unique management rights structure based on the principle that if the management company is making a profit, so should the villa owner.


The safety and security of the investor has always been of primary concern at Castaways Resort. Fail-safe systems in place mean that even if the management company were to fail, owners would remain largely unaffected.
