About the “Welcome Bay” Suburb of Tauranga
Welcome Bay is now a large community offering homes from the inexpensive (popular with first home buyers and rental investors), to medium priced properties accommodating families, to higher priced executive homes commanding spectacular views. A portion of these homes are sited on the edge of Welcome Bay estuary giving close up harbour views, while others are on elevated farmland taking in the expansive rural and water views.
Real estate in this area continues to expand onto re-developed farmland as does the neighbouring suburb Ohauiti similar in habitat. Easy access to Mount Maunganui, Bay Of Plenty Polytechnic and Greerton.
