Personal, Professional and Virtual Assistance

Monterey Assistance offers a wide range of services to assist businesses, families and individuals. We are based in Auckland, New Zealand, but work virtually, so wherever you are, we can help.



Getting "All The Things" Done for You

Monterey Assistance exists to provide clients with support wherever they may need it. We provide a broad range of services so that you can focus on what is most important for you either at the office or at home.


Need a Hand with Your Office Admin?

We can support you with a variety of Office Administrative tasks from basic data entry to proofing and formatting documents, from minute taking to implementing systems to streamline your workspace. We mainly work virtually, but can be based onsite as required.

Free Up Your Time

We can turn our hand to pretty much anything!

Needing a holiday? Don't waste your time finding the perfect holiday. We will do the research based on your timeframes, wish lists, locations and budgets and source your best options. We have extensive experience with planning travel. 

Need Gifts? Birthdays? Anniversaries? For yourself? We will research and source gift ideas for your whole family based on your budget and guidelines. All the gifts will be beautifully wrapped and ready for the special day! We like to support Local and New Zealand businesses, especially small businesses, for these gift ideas (and always try to go ethical, organic, natural and always animal cruelty free!).

Have a bunch of errands? Need your shoes reheeled? Dry cleaning dropped off or picked up? We are able to undertake errands in the Auckland area.
