As a native Scotsman who moved to New Zealand in 2004, I have traveled myself extensively around the world and now live in Tauranga most the year and also spend plenty time in Kinloch, a short distance from Taupo. Both areas, I fell in love with from the very first moment I visited. Tauranga and Mt Maunganui with its long sandy beaches makes for a fantastic place for families. Kinloch is my lake and golf course retreat where I love to recharge with the incredible golf courses, fly fishing, boating and walking. Our property in Kinloch is located by the Kinloch Club, a Jack Nicklaus Golf Course which is world class, and is an exceptional venue for combined families, golf groups, weddings or birthday celebrations ! The property I look after in Mt Maunganui / Tauranga is a stunning 3 bedroom Terrace home only 30 seconds from beach access ! I love this place for its location being so close to the hustle and bustle of Mt Maunganui, but far enough away to be private and quiet, Bayfair, Baywave and also Rotorua only a 35 minute drive away. Great for family holidays ! I look forward to welcoming future guests to these pieces of paradise!
