downtown tauranga

Willowdene Boutique B&B is situated just far enough away from the main arterial routes which feed from Bethlehem, to ensure your sleep is restful and undisturbed. However, easy access to the roads north, south and west mean you are within minutes of divine beaches, golf courses, weekend farmers markets, the city of Tauranga and its restaurants, shops and movie theatres.

An easy ten minute drive over the Tauranga Harbour Bridge brings you to the seaside resort town of Mount Maunganui, known for its exquisite ocean and harbour beaches, cafes and more. The Tauranga Harbour is said to be one of the safest in the world and there are a multitude of activities to be enjoyed on it, or further out to sea.
