3 bed Apt, lovely water view, v close to beach, Tauranga. New Zealand
Our apartment is an expansive 160 square mtrs with 3 double Bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a very generous deck. It has large sliding doors off each bedroom and lounge opening to the deck. The deck vista includes a tidal estuary with comings and goings of many boats, windsurfers, jet skis and waka. Part of this complex includes a boatstack and associated canal, interesting. This innerharbour view extends to a tree clad island and includes spectacular view of Mount Maunganui. The harbour entrance gives views of local and international shipping including many modern cruise ships. There is always something of interest to be seen from our outdoor living. A cafe can be found on the ground floor, just a short lift ride from our front door. Downtown Tauranga is only 20mins walk and about $10 cab fare to get home after visiting a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants.
Tauranga is very central and has a number of beaches, shops (the mount shopping is boutique style strip shopping with plenty of cafes restaurants ) surrounding it. Rotorua which is very appealing to tourists is about 1 hour away by car which has all things tourists like to do.
Of course you could just sit on the deck and watch the world go buy as there is always lots to see in the weekend as people launch their boats a few seconds away.
There are hot pools at the Mount (10 minutes drive away) and a lovely boardwalk and great views if you choose to walk around the Mount (a walk of 45 minutes with beautiful views of the ocean) You will not be alone if you decide to do this walk as a large number of people do this walk every day. If you are very fit you could walk around the summit.
Our apartment is on the edge of Tauranga Harbour and has very nice views overlooking the water and a boat ramp. There is a boat stack as part of our building and a restaurant. It is an easy walk of 15 minutes to Tauranga shops and there is a Grocery supermarket 10 minutes away. There is a beach at the end of our road 10 minutes walk away.We have a number of shopping areas within 10 minutes by car or bus.
There is a Golf course at Bureta area a matter of 10minutes walk away but there are also 4 others ranging from driving 5 minutes to 30 minutes so very handy to these ammenties. Please Google Otumoetai golf course, Omanu Golf course, Mount Maunganui Golf club and Omokoroa golf course which is closer to 20 minutes away by car.
