About the neighbourhood
Being a peninsula, the area is surrounded by water. Most properties belong to permanent residents and holiday makers. Okere Falls and lake Rotoiti are set between rural land and natural forest reserves with a small population density and many amazing bush and river walks. One of the best place in the world for natural hot springs, mountain biking, lake swimming and trout fishing.
Getting around
We are situated half way between Rotorua and Tauranga (Mt Maunganui) on State highway 33. The nearest airport is Rotorua Airport 15 minute drive away from which buses and taxi are available.
