Our home

We are proud to have designed this as a spacious well-appointed retirement home with all modern amenities, the latest heating/cooling climate control system and fully flyscreened. It is a 5 year old single level dwelling with ease of internal access. Our large master bedroom has 2 comfortable armchairs and wonderful window views plus adjoining 3 piece ensuite bathroom. Guest bedroom 1 has a double bed and bedroom 2 has two twin (single) beds. They are served with a handy 4 piece bathroom. Close to the living area is another 2 piece guest toilet. We have a formal dining area combined with a cozy living/lounge room with the latest large flat-screen TV/DVD. The award-winning kitchen is a chef's delight with 5 burner gas stove and all other modern appliances. It is open to an informal dining/family area with another large TV. From here, east & west patio doors lead onto an expansive private outdoor patio area which has great northern (southern hemisphere-sunny aspect) views over a golf course in the valley below with urban views on the far side. During the long pleasant summers there are ample choices of outdoor seating/dining in 4 separate arrangements and we have a new top-of-line barbecue. Our home is on a large 3/4 acre lot located in a lifestyle subdivision within the Tauranga city boundary.

Who we are

  1. We are an active married couple having both retired from the pharmaceutical industry after living the last 25 years in Calgary, Canada. We both enjoy cooking & entertaining family/friends, gardening, long strolls and reading plus we are both ardent hobbyists. We are blessed with wonderful neighbours in a quiet friendly street. Our eldest daughter lives just 20 minutes away to assist if necessary with house, local and tourist information tips. We've just completed our 5th home exchange so we've become ardent enthusiasts of this wonderful concept. In 2011 we would like to home exchange in the SE of England, south of France or in the Tuscany region of Italy. Because we are retired we have flexibility in trip timing, however we would prefer to home exchange during the northern hemisphere spring or fall (autumn).
    Please try us as we are easily tempted!!! & we WILL reply to every query.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Tauranga is a city of over 120,000 located on the east coast of North Island just over 2 hours drive south-east of Auckland (NZ's largest city). Our home is only a 3 minute drive to the local suburban village that has all necessary amenities, 10 minutes to the city centre and 12 minutes to our beautiful harbour & Pacific Ocean beaches. This region has plenty to offer the overseas tourist with a diversity of spectacular scenery, many unique local restaurants/cafes, bars and shops, nearby wonderful uncluttered beaches, great hiking, many golf courses and an abundance of other outdoor & watersport activities. It is at the centre of NZ's major kiwifruit & avocado growing industry. We are only 40 minutes drive away from famed Rotorua thermal area (mini Yellowstone Park) and 2 hours south to Taupo & NZ's largest lake backdropped by 3 magnificent mountains/skifields. For these reasons Tauranga and environs is regarded as the vacation mecca for New Zealanders and international visitors.
