Wanting a family holiday but no room in the budget?

Winter is the perfect time to start planning your next break. Imagine lying on the beach in beautiful Ohope or splashing around the pools in Hanmer Springs… but with costs rising all around us you may think we’re crazy to suggest booking a family holiday right now. 

Great news for you – we have found a collection of 13 spacious holiday homes around the country that parents can rent super-cheaply. This is a great opportunity for families, by not-for-profit Kiwi organisation Manchester Unity: A collective of members who support each other that has been around for more than 180 years!

Manchester Unity members simply pay $8 a month (that’s just $96 per year), and get access to book any of the 13 holiday homes for as little as $255 for a week. 

On top of that you’ll qualify for more great perks like $9 movie tickets, shopping discounts (at some of NZ’s biggest retailers), fun online games and competitions, and so much more.

The $96 membership fee is quickly paid back with discounts on outdoor gear, technology, home renovations and more (sometimes up to 60% off) or renting a two-bedroom, centrally located house in Queenstown for $82 per night rather than the market rate of $350 – $500 per night. 

Here’s your chance to create family memories at beautiful New Zealand beaches, playing in the snow and cycling on the best bike trails. Parents have been so thankful and can’t believe how valuable it has been. 

Here’s what parents have to say:

“I took the family to stay in Manchester Unity’s Hanmer Springs holiday home…(it) had everything we needed. Such a great location. We love being able to go and not spend a fortune!”  Jane, Christchurch

“We have had three summer holidays at the Ohope holiday home… our little home away from home. Ohope has given us the best holidays we have had as a family… so many memories for the kids…thank you so much Manchester Unity, for giving us the opportunity to have an affordable kiwi holiday at the beach…” Stephanie, Napier

“My wife and I were a bit apprehensive about the [Hanmer Springs] unit and what the standard would be like. When we arrived the condition of the unit surpassed and exceeded our expectations.

It was warm, tidy, clean, and roomy with all the facilities one would expect… We look forward to using our members units in other locations in the future…” David, Christchurch
