An idyllic setting..
Tauranga's relaxed coastal lifestyle and warm, sunny climate have made this city an attractive place to call home. The Maori definition of Tauranga is 'the place of rest or anchorage' and many centuries on, this definition still rings true.
Bethlehem has flourished in the past 15 years we have lived here, further adding to the vibrant community and range of amenities situated close by. It is close to the local main centres of Mount Maunganui and Tauranga CBD, yet provides a secluded enclave from the hustle and bustle of city life.
We fell in love with the beautiful established native trees at Woodlands, at over 100 years old, these trees are some of the last remaining remnants of bush that would have once stretched throughout the Bay of Plenty. This is a truly unique part of the world that we can't wait to share with you.
