Default Touchdown in Tauranga

Well we made it. Arrived in NZ on the 12th. Spent two days in Auckland then headed down to Tauranga to get things rolling.

Have been given a verbal start date of my new job for Jan 18th so am officially on holiday until then. Drove along Papamoa today - nice area - as am hoping to be able to find somewhere to rent there. Staying with family atm which is fine but there is nothing like having your own place.

Looking forward to any meet ups in the future and getting to know peeps.

Call in at the butchers they may know about a private letting.

There are still places to rent here try picking the leaflets up outside the letting agents on Cameron Road they are closed but leaflets are usually left outside.

I wish I could help, I have my own rental agency here covering Tauranga, Mount & Papamoa - but we have nothing left at the moment!

I have one coming on in the New Year in Otumoetai and one in Omokoroa, I also have a lovely rural property, furnished, in the Papamoa Hills but not coming on until March. If I hear of anything in the meantime I'll PM you.

I agree, pick up the flyers from outside the other agencies they certainly have more than us! Any problems, let me know.

Will definitely be interested in the new year, Otumoetai is nor far from where I am now. Would be looking for long term though as dont really want to have to move again too soon. Please let me know when you have something come up.
Cheers
