Welcome to the Winter edition of the quarterly update of The Vines at Bethlehem, lifestyle retirement newsletter.

The Vines is certainly progressing at a very quick pace now with 33 residents now living in their new villas’.

Our club house is already being well used by residents, and a few weeks ago we celebrated our first gold medal from the World Masters Games held in Auckland. Read about this further along in the newsletter.

It is wonderful to see the new entrance begin to take shape, and the planting along the road frontage.

It is hard to believe that it is now June, but for us there is no stopping as we put our energies into providing a stunning living environment for our residents in what is Tauranga’s newest Lifestyle Retirement Village.

We would love to hear your feedback and ideas regarding our e-newsletter.  If there is anything you would like further information on, please contact me on or give me a call on 07 578 0525

Stage two villas’ are under construction with stage one villas only a few days away from final build completion. Landscaping is a major priority for the village and the theme of space, trees, hedges and beautiful plantings are taking shape. Once spring arrives the village gardens will start to look stunning.

Stage 2 comprises of 2 and 3 bedroom homes ranging in size from 100sqm to 155sqm as standalone and duplex configurations. These homes are selling so fast that we are now looking at moving forward the construction of Stage 3.

A visit to our new show home will enable you to appreciate the build quality, with items such as raking ceilings in the living areas, high studs, sensor lighting, and superior fittings.


Last month we celebrated with presentations to the following:
First signed expression of interest, Richard and Angela Woodyear-Smith
First signed Occupation Right, Penny and Neville Heapy
First Residents, Brian and Dot Guy

This was a very exciting celebration for us with a large number of new and future residents enjoying time to mix and mingle with their neighbours. Tim Preston, one of the Directors was on board to present trophies which will be a lasting memory for those who were first to dip their toes here at The Vines. We had a wonderful evening, enjoyed by all.

We have many other activities that will be available for the residents of the village including a walking group and Tai chi to name a few.


We recently also celebrated one of our residents (Helen) winning a gold medal at the World Masters Games in Auckland. Helen and her foursome won gold in bowls after defeating the Canadians, Australians and another New Zealand team in the final. What a wonderful result and here at The Vines, we are terribly proud of Helen and her team from the Tauranga Bowling Club.


Our show home is now open Monday to Friday 10am – 3pm.

We welcome you to view the show home during opening hours, but if this doesn’t suit contact Tony to arrange an appointment to discuss availability and pricing. We are fortunate to have a second show home under construction. Currently due to open in October 2017.


I would love the opportunity to discuss The Vines at Bethlehem, and our vision of what we are offering. I am happy to run through the process of securing one of our homes, and can answer any questions you may have.
