- Carmel Country Estate is nestled in the friendly Tauranga suburb of Ohauiti. The village is bordered by a greenbelt, creating a calm and peaceful environment. Yet we’re just a few minutes from the local shopping centre, and only a ten-minute drive from the amenities of downtown Tauranga.
The 142 homes at Carmel Country Estate are spread across 16 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. Our spacious two and three villas are designed to make the most of the Bay of Plenty sunshine, with north-facing living areas, patios and plenty of outdoor space. Many of our villas are customisable, and all come with their own garage and parking. Carmel Country Estate also has a number of attractive one and two bedroom apartments, situated over our community centre. These units come with high quality kitchens, fully-equipped laundries and exterior storage cupboards, as well as secure, ground level parking.
Village life revolves around our well-appointed community centre. This is where many of our activities take place, including craft sessions, choir practice, art classes and indoor bowls. Enjoy a game of croquet, watch the rugby on our wide screen TV, or just relax with a book in our sunny conservatory. Other facilities at the centre include a well-stocked library and computer room, nurses room, all-weather bowling green, hair salon, gym and woodworking workshop. The centre has a full kitchen, and is often used for hosting birthday parties and visiting entertainers.
Carmel Country Estate is family owned and operated. For more information, please make an enquiry.Open Day: Sunday 30 June 2019 10am - 4pmVillage tours with villa and apartment viewings

Guests and family are welcome to use the facilities as long as a resident accompanies them.
What does the entry fee cover? ×The entry cost gives the resident an occupational right which is the right to live in the property for their lifetime or as long as they choose. When the resident leaves the village they will receive the cost paid minus the deferred management fee and any other charges due.
What are the residents rights if the village got into financial difficulty? ×Residents are protected through a first ranking mortgage with the Covenant Trustee Services Limited who are the statutory supervisors. This provides security over the village land in order to ensure priority and security for the rights of all residents. The statutory supervisor also ensures the operator of the village acts in accordance with the Disclosure Statements and the village is run in a financially responsible manner.
What happens if there is a delay in sale? ×If the property has not been sold within 3 months the village is required to let the resident (or enduring power of attorney) know in writing and provide monthly reports until it is sold. These reports will contain what steps the village is taking to market the property and the progress being made. If the property has not been sold after 6 months then the village (at its expense) must obtain a written valuation by an independent registered valuer. The resident is welcome to have their own valuation completed (at their cost) with a registered valuer. The village is then required to market the property according to the agreed valuation. After 6 months, weekly fees drop by 50%.
