About the “Maungatapu” Suburb of Tauranga

Real Estate

Maungatapu offers easy access to the city (approx 10 minutes) and also to Mount Maunganui (10 minutes).

Real estate development in this subdivision was predominately in the 60’s and 70’s with many prestigious homes built with obtaining magnificent harbour views, some with their own water access.
Lower priced 3 or 4 bedroom homes have great appeal to working families for the proximity to the CBD and intermediate and college schooling.

This is also a sought after area for those wishing to invest in Tauranga real estate as good rental properties in an established area are always in demand.
