about the accommodation directory

Merivale Manor, ChristchurchThe move2nz accommodation directory was built due to the huge demand for good, well priced accommodation for migrants, travellers and migrant's visiting families. It is currently small and covers only a small area. However it will be growing over time with more types of accommodation being added including longer term rentals.

How do you select which establishments to list?
We have realised that the only real way to find out what accommodation is like is to go in and look. So Tammy and Tui have been visiting many different establishments, talking with the owners and checking out the facilities. Listings in the directory are by invitation only and, to keep it select, only a few of the best found in each area will be invited to join.

This directory will never become huge, chiefly because we want to keep it select and easily searchable. In an area like Christchurch with approximately 200 motels we will list as a maximum around 40 if enough meet our standards.


How is this directory different from all the others?
Well, apart from the fact that we have personally visited each and every place listed, only establishments that are run by great people, with excellent facilities and above all a great migrant focus are invited. This site is all about providing great services at little or no cost to migrants, so naturally this is the best directory for migrants to use!

What areas will this directory cover?
Currently Tammy and Tui have been travelling around Canterbury - our back yard. Shortly they will be heading off to Otago, Wellington and Auckland to expand the directory over the next few months. Eventually we will cover the entire country, but it'll take a little time because we need to check each and every one out personally.

Do you charge accommodation providers commission?
In a word, no. We list businesses for a small annual charge but we want this to be a free service to you. Adding a commission could push the cost to you up! What we really want is to reduce your costs so always make sure to mention you found the provider through move2nz as we will be working to get discounts for you with as many businesses as possible!

What's next for this directory?
This is just the first version of the directory. In version 2 coming soon we will be adding tools such as the ability to save your search or email it to a friend as well as an advanced search where you will be able to:
  • search by price bracket
  • search for a particular amenity - such as whether they are pet friendly or have a spa pool

What if a place is not listed here?
If an establishment is not invited to list in this directory it doesn't necessarily mean that it wasn't good enough, it could be we had enough establishments of that type for that particular area already. However you know that if a business is listed then it is a great place to go and stay!

If you have any questions about this service, or would like to give feedback please email tammy@move2nz.com.
