Bachcare celebrates 10 years in Taupo with Sponsorship

Friday 19 October 2018

Bachcare celebrates 10 years in Taupo by sponsoring the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge.

A company that has spent ten years looking after Taupo holiday homes is supporting the region’s and New Zealand’s iconic cycle event.

Bachcare, New Zealand’s largest holiday home management company, is celebrating 10 years operating in the Taupo area by becoming the newest sponsor for the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge.

Bachcare founder Leslie Preston says they’ve always had a soft spot for Taupo which was one of the first regions to embrace the idea of having someone look after their much loved holiday homes.

“Taupo is such an iconic destination for kiwi holidays. We love working with both holiday home owners and holidayers. The places we look after are more than just properties, many have been part of families’ lives for years - they are places where memories are made.”

From just one holiday home in 2008, Bachcare Taupo has steadily grown to over 230 homes in the Lake Taupo area and nearly 2,000 nationally. Ms Preston estimates Bachcare Taupo has managed almost 25,000 bookings and hosted over 144,000 guests in the last 10 years.

She says sponsoring the iconic BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge was an easy decision.

“We help manage the holiday home experience which is so iconic to Taupo – it made sense to support one of their most iconic events.

We are already very involved in the Taupo community with nine holiday home managers operating in the area to make sure everything is taken care of for the holiday home owners, as well as, the guests.’

Debbie Chambers, Event Director for the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge said, “Bachcare brings another great accommodation offering to the event and we are delighted to have them on board as the official private accommodation partner. Every year we have groups of people looking for quality accommodation. They have trained together in the lead up to the event and they want to stay together when they take part. That’s where a holiday home can work well.”

“So often with big events, there is the perception that all accommodation is sold out as the hotels and motels tend to fill up quickly and put up the no vacancy sign. However, holiday homes are another great option and Taupo has a fantastic selection to choose from.”

Ms Preston said, “The BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge signals the start of the busy summer season for Bachcare Taupo. With our rapid growth in Taupo, we fortunately have some properties available over the weekend of the 24th November. We will be providing benefits to participants still seeking accommodation, as well as other competitions and giveaways in the lead up to and during the event.”

“We are really excited to be involved in the BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge and look forward to a long relationship with the event that goes well beyond this year.”
