Our home

Our house is situated at the end of a lovely peninsular overlooking the inner Tauranga Harbour. We have beautiful views from every window in the house. The living spaces are upstairs to take advantage of the lovely views, two bedrooms, master and one other twin bedded room upstairs, together with bathroom and separate toilet. Kitchen, with all mod cons and dining room adjoining. Large lounge with woodburner fire adjoins the dining room and with direct access to outdoor decking. Downstairs there are two further bedrooms with queen bed and single beds plus another room used by us as an office. Another bathroom and separate toilet plus hall and front door completes the living space. There is direct access from the hall to the exceedingly large double garage and utility room where the washing machine and dryer are located.
The locality is extremely safe and neighbours are very friendly. There have been several north American home exchange visitors to the immediate locality and they keep returning year after year!

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a retired professional couple who live in New Zealand and travel for part of the year. My husband was a high school teacher and I worked in the financial services industry until our retirement. Our family now live in Florida USA and Sydney Australia so we try and spend time visiting these countries each year in order to enjoy our grandchildren whilst they are growing up. My husband is a keen video photographer, and I like digital still photography. We have been cruising for the past five years but would now like to explore more of the USA and Australia because we believe there is so much variety and exciting places to visit in these countries. As our home in NZ is vacant for almost five months, we can arrange a non simultaneous exchange. We have a gardener who comes and keeps the garden tidy whilst we are away.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Omokoroa is a small village 17km (10-12 miles) north of Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty New Zealand. We live in an area which is the kiwifruit capital of NZ. There are also many avocado orchards as well. The village has its own 18 hole golf course, bowls club, boating club, and a small beach and open domain area. There is a beach store which sells most needs and two restaurants, hot mineral pools available at the local camp grounds and many wonderful walking routes throughout the village and along the beaches. We are only twenty minutes drive from the city of Tauranga which has many fine restaurants and shopping, and the golden sandy ocean beaches are about 25 minutes drive distant where one can swim or surf or just walk and enjoy the many cafes and restaurants in the area.
Rotorua,one of NZ main tourist attractions is an hours drive away and many other lovely places to visit are within easy reach. Auckland International airport is two hours drive distant and shuttles will bring you straight to our door from the airport as well as collect you to take you back to the airport when you depart NZ. Tauranga has a small domestic airport as well.
