About our home

Lovely, large, warm, sunny, family home located in a quiet rural area on the outskirts of Tauranga. Ten minutes drive to gorgeous cafes and an easy 20-30 min drive to some of the regions best white, sandy beaches. The house has a large open plan kitchen/dining/family room with bi-fold doors opening onto patio/bbq area, plus a separate lounge and separate games room (with pool table and playstation). Single level home with four bedrooms (master with ensuite). Bikes and kayaks can be made available if needed. Enjoy full use of our motor vehicle to explore the nearby bush, beaches, cafes and hot pools. An hours drive from Rotorua, New Zealand's famous thermal wonderland and only just over an hours drive to the Coromandel penisula.

We are a family of 5. Two adults and three teenage sons (18, 16, 14). Pete works in finance and Pip has worked for years as a Teacher Aide and is currently studying to become a Primary School Teacher. We love the outdoors, sport, going to the beach, great holidays, and spending time together as a family.

  2. Pete is a Mortgage Broker and Pip is studying to be a Primary School Teacher. Matthew (18) is studying management at University, Sam (16) and Joshua (14) attend one of the local high schools. We all enjoy outdoor activities, sport and spending time together as a family.
