Jack's Point Resident Owners Association
Renting your home
Renting your home long term is permitted at Jack's Point. Property Owners remain responsible for ensuring that tenants adhere to the bylaws and that both the property and landscaping are maintained, landlords will need to ensure that there is sufficient parking on the property for all related vehicles.
Visitor accommodation (less than 1 month) has the below parameters as the residential areas are primarily for residential use and visitor accommodation in the future is expected to be mostly provided in the village:
- You many rent your property for a total of up to 90 days in any calendar year.
- You are responsible for obtaining any council consent needed.
- You require dispensation to use a management agency other than the rental agency or market the property yourself.
- Jacks point is a registered trademark so if you wish to use this in any advertising, you will need to keep within the brand guidelines and get the approval of the trademark owner.
NZ Post does not deliver mail to homes at Jacks’s Point and so there is no post code. You can establish a post office box at the Wakatipu Post Office (Frankton), this is currently a free service for Jack's Point residents with proof of address.

- the business operation is unlikely to breach the Constitution or any bylaw.
- the business operation has minimal impact in terms of signage, lighting, parking or traffic.
- all commercial signage has been approved by the Residents Society.
