Located in the stunning Bay of Plenty region, Tauranga boasts a warm climate, picturesque surrounds and both an infamous and enviable lifestyle. It’s easy to see why this idyllic location is recognised as one of the most desirable places for retirement.
Perfectly positioned on what was once the iconic Mills Reef Winery, The Vines is just moments from the thriving Bethlehem township. Residents enjoy an easy stroll to fantastic amenities, boutique shopping and sensational dining.
Bethlehem’s superb locality promises convenient access to all main arterial routes. Seaside mecca Mount Maunganui is a short drive across the harbour bridge; its golden sands and scenic walkways are an attractive drawcard.
Ever evolving, Tauranga’s CBD, art gallery and library are all less than ten minutes by car.
Numerous golf courses and local reserves are dotted around the area, offering active retirees continued enjoyment in favourite leisurely pursuits.
Keep doing what you love, together with likeminded peers, in safe, comfortable surrounds but with much more time.
