We are a married retired couple( Kerry and Barry). Our interests are most sports, fishing and boating, music, reading, playing Bridge and gardening. We love to travel and are always keen on new places to visit.
About Our Home
Our home is family friendly as well as ideal for couples. We are quite private as we are on a back section, down a drive. The house opens on to a large deck with table, chairs and barbeque where you can sit and look over the water towards the city, as seen in the photos. We have tropical gardens and enclosed courtyard with doors opening onto it.

We have a shopping centre less than 10 minutes walk away which provides most basic needs. Bus stop is almost right outside our place. It is 10 minutes to the main town centre by road and 10 minutes to the nearest surf beach.The very popular seaside suburb of Mount Maunganui is a 15 minute drive away. We are very central here between the town and beaches. We are quite happy to swap cars for the exchange.

We are very central to many attractions in the North Island, being a bit less than 2 hours by road from Auckland, one hour from Hamilton, one hour from the hot springs, boiling mud etc (attractions) of Rotorua and 2 hours to Taupo. and a little bit longer than 2 hours to the ski fields. The Bay of Plenty region has a sub tropical climate and as we are surrounded by water there are many water based activities to be utilised in this area. We are only 10 minutes away from Tauranga airport which has flights connecting with Auckland International airport. We have satellite TV in our home with 50 plus channels available.
