Owning a shared holiday week gives you access to an apartment stay with so much more flexibility than can be provided by a hotel or motel. Your stay will be relaxing as it is shared with other considerate "Owners."

The options are wide - Purchases are made in units of ‘one week.’ You can use the week yourself, let your family or friends use it, rent it out, or ‘exchange’ your week for another timeshare resort in New Zealand or elsewhere in the world using an exchange company.


Many of our Owners own multiple weeks and spend a fortnight or month in the Bay of Islands or each year as we are so accessible to Auckland. With our borders closed some have recently swapped their weeks to stay in an apartment in Wanaka, Queenstown, Mount Maungaui, Tauranga, Taupo, Turangi and Mount Hutt instead. 

All repairs, refurbishment and operating costs are budgeted annually. A levy is set to cover all of these and you get a weeks accommodation each year on payment of this levy.

Our one bedroom apartment levy has been.$725 for the past six years. Unless voted on by all Owners there are no other costs associated with your weeks ownership. 

A pooling agreement provides flexibility for all "floating" weeks and you are able to stay any week each year between mid February and the end of the year.

If you wish to visit the Resort in January or early February you will need to purchase a "fixed' week. Levies for fixed and floating weeks are identical. 

Membership in RCI & 7Across exchange companies gives you complete control over your holiday ownership experience. You may own a NZ timeshare, but you have the ability to travel to thousands of resorts worldwide within each individual exchange company’s affiliate system.

As an Owner you have the opportunity to select which apartment of the type you purchase that you would like to stay in. 

What are the specifics?

The annual maintenance fee is a fee set by a committee of elected owners and ratified at an annual general meeting. This will be then payable by each owner for the coming year due in February, once this levy has been paid, the owner will have a new entitlement per timeshare. 

At this time there is no deferred maintenance so ongoing maintenance and refurbishment of units is being conducted out of our standard levies. 


There are two types of weeks:- Fixed and Floating

Each apartment at Busby Manor is sold to 51 owners in units of ‘one week’. Weeks are numbered 1 through to 52 based on the calendar year (Friday to Friday) with one week set aside for maintenance.

Fixed Week: These are weeks over the Christmas/New Year period. Each year, owners of these weeks use the specific apartment number and week number which they own.

Floating Week: The remaining weeks (approx. 48) are called ‘Floating weeks’.
