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 a leisurely 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 only a short drive across the harbour bridge, and its golden sands and scenic walkways are an attractive drawcard.
