Meet the Team

Wanaka Holiday Homes offers a personalised service to meet the individual needs of holiday home owners and holiday makers. We specialise in managing holiday homes in Wanaka, Northlake and Albert Town. Founded in 2008 by local resident Heather Kahl, Wanaka Holiday Homes started with just one property and is now the leading holiday home management firm in Wanaka.

The Team

Heather Kahl

Heather Kahl enjoys hosting guests and has been helping home owners since her first home in 2008. Heather has carefully built the business with a genuine approach and a commitment to reliability and going that extra mile. The relationships with her home owners are very strong and she enjoys welcoming the guests to stay in Wanaka. Heather lives here in Wanaka with her family; she balances a life in business with time in the outdoors, travel and with her teenage daughter.

Rachael Leslie

Rachael Leslie takes care or our homes and our people. She welcomes guests and makes sure they have a great stay. Rachael is charge of quality control; she is fastidious in upholding our standard of cleanliness as well as ensuring overall maintenance and upkeep of each property. She communicates with our property owners and manages our cleaning teams. She is a marvel with all of these details. When she is not keeping everything ship-shape, she is spending time with her teenage girls, in the outdoors and making the most of Wanaka’s biking and hiking tracks.

Rachael and Heather are supported by an incredible team of cleaners, local suppliers, tradesmen and maintenance people. They all love working in a small team to get this big job done.

The approach

We are deliberately a small team, who take the utmost care to ensure houses are clean, tidy and taken care of to a very high standard. The Wanaka Holiday Homes team are mindful of the environment, all have an incredible eye for detail and they each enjoy the dynamic and satisfying work involved with managing these properties and hosting guests. They work seamlessly together to deliver a genuine, down-to-earth service.
