Ōrere Point TOP 10 Holiday Park is looking forward to a busy summer season boosted by a commitment to modernisation from its owners, including upgrading its facilities and using a smart software system that keeps customers singing its praises.
Site Manager Sunny Han says the holiday park is a paradise of tranquil parkland surrounded by forest and bathed in birdsong, with a river wandering gently through on its way to the sea just five minutes’ walk away.
“It’s a classic yet unique slice of Kiwi paradise.”
Nestled on the edge of the Firth of Thames, the holiday park boasts an array of accommodation options, from humble campsites and cabins to motel-style self-contained units. Running the park is made easier by Seekom’s iBex property management software, which powers the bookings calendar, extras, pricing and availability, making it simple for customers to secure bookings and for the holiday park’s staff to manage them.
“Since we started using Seekom in July 2020, it’s made life much easier,” Sunny says.
“We’ve never had a complaint about the booking process.”
Her team of six staff all use Seekom to manage the smooth operation of the holiday park. The flexibility to instantly introduce short term or long-term rate changes, or minimum stay periods, means she can tailor the park’s rates to target peak periods and drive maximum occupancy.
Sunny says she appreciates Seekom being simple for new staff to learn and pick up, and its ability to handle both online and in-person or phone bookings in one place. One particularly helpful feature of the booking system is the option of excluding accommodation units from being booked online, if a room or cabin is undergoing maintenance or a large annual group booking is expected but hasn’t yet been paid for and completely confirmed.
As a cloud-based software solution, Seekom can be accessed on any device connected to the internet - gone are the days of clunky installation disks or hardware requirements that restrict access. In addition, Seekom is self-updating and maintains industry-standard data security to safeguard its customer’s information.
New owner Daniel Yi took ownership of the park in 2008. Since then, a modernisation programme has been underway and the park now boasts a conference room, refurbished games room, enhanced mini golf course, giant chess, a trampoline, spa and sauna, 2GB of on-site Wi-Fi for each guest and just about everything else required for a heavenly holiday.
The 5.29 ha piece of paradise also operates as Daniel Christian Camp and specialises in welcoming church groups, school camps, sports groups and families. It has a history of hospitality, having welcomed guests since 1964, and is looking forward to a bright future with the peak holiday season just round the corner, Sunny says.
“The seasonal break is just round the corner and we’re all really excited about celebrating Christmas with various different Christian groups who will be staying with us.”
