Tauranga has long been a favourite spot for Kiwis looking to retire. But word got out and hordes of people have flocked to the beautiful seaside town, turning it into a pretty bustling city. But there is a way to enjoy all that Tauranga offers while still experiencing the tranquillity of a relaxed retirement. Gables Retirement Lifestyle Village in Omokoroa is only 20 minutes away. Here, you can retire in style with Tauranga just down the road.
Warm weather – competing for NZ’s sunniest spot each year, the climate in Tauranga is hard to beat. The hot summers are cooled down by a sea breeze; the winters are mild and sunny.
Beautiful beaches – Tauranga is famous for its beaches and the view of the harbour from the city centre isn’t too shabby either. If you’re looking for a retirement close to the sea, being super close to Omokoroa harbour and being on the outskirts of Tauranga and its many beaches is ideal.
Friendly folks – when you live somewhere as beautiful as Tauranga, it’s hard not to smile. This happiness is infectious, and unlike busier cities, people here take the time to share a smile, a conversation or even a cuppa with strangers.
Family fun – if you already have children and grandchildren living here, you’ll know how family-oriented life in Tauranga is. If not, it’s a great place for them to visit. There’s an excellent selection of child-friendly activities, plenty of parks, and an art gallery.
Fantastic food – from the farmer’s market to the restaurants to the award-winning café, Tauranga has something for everyone. It’s close enough for you to enjoy a dinner out with family or a coffee by the beach.
Once a sleepy seaside town, Tauranga has grown to be NZ’s fifth biggest city! The beauty, weather and local beaches have attracted more than just retirees, and the pace of life has changed.
Omokoroa, on the other hand, has stayed a retiree’s little secret. Part of greater Tauranga, it’s just 20 minutes away from the city centre. It’s the perfect spot for a retirement village: close enough for a day strolling in town yet small enough to enjoy the quiet lifestyle of a relaxed coastal town.
