About us

Beyonder is something special. It’s that place beyond the mundane; the space where the magic really happens.    

At Beyonder we’re passionate about the beautiful Bay of Plenty and going above and beyond to provide experiences that enhance lives, refuel souls and leave you with a new mindset.

The Bay of Plenty is our home and we’ve woven the best of it into the very fabric of Beyonder and everything we stand for.

Our boutique business is much more than a booking platform or a holiday home management service, it’s a new way to getaway. 

At Beyonder we handpick our holiday homes, care for the properties ourselves, and collaborate with local likeminded artisans. Alongside this our thoughtful touches and sustainable eco-friendly essentials help to set the scene for unique slow living experiences.

Whether you come to rest, unwind, explore or play in the Bay, Beyonder has curated the very best of this beautiful region. That means you can slow down, relax, and enjoy the ease of holidaying while we look after you and our planet. 

Your Host

Haley Saunders, Founder and Director of Beyonder

Haley is a highly skilled property manager with a genuine passion for people, the Bay, and showcasing and caring for beautiful homes.

Beyonder is an extension of Haley’s successful career managing holiday homes in stunning locations all around the world. She has travelled extensively and worked with homeowners from all walks of life, and with properties that range from historic villas in bustling cities, to luxury homes in Wanaka, and apartments nestled in idyllic mountains.

With her finger on the pulse of exceptional property management and inspiring getaways, Haley elevates and enhances the experience for both homeowners and holiday goers, taking away the stress and enabling them both to slow down and enjoy life. With Beyonder Haley has taken her exceptional knowledge of quality property management and complemented it with her love of the Bay to create something refreshingly different. Beyonder fills a gap in a growing market by embracing sustainability, enhancing slow living, collaborating with local artisans, and showcasing the very best of the Bay all on one platform.

When she’s not living and breathing Beyonder, Haley can be found enjoying one of the beautiful local beaches with her dog, Reggie. Reggie and Haley work from the Beyonder office on Tukorako Drive in Mount Maunganui, so pop in for a cuppa and have a chat about listing your property.
