Location

Tauranga, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

Taiaho place is a very quiet but loving neighbourhood situated between both the central mount and downtown Tauranga. It's like living in the country....but you're in the middle of town.
Walk out the back gate and you'll have access to a tennis court, inner harbour swimming, a wharf and lying on the grass!

I am a proud New Zealander and I love sharing knowledge about our unique country and history. I am always interested in meeting other people and sharing with them friendship and good company. Five things I can't live without are: 1. My beautiful wife and son 2. Enjoying the fantastic beach here in Mount Maunganui 3. Learning (and sharing) Maori knowledge 4. Watching Rugby (and Rugby League) 5. Contributing to our global community to make this world a 'happier' place. My favourite travel destination I have yet to discover, my favourite book is 'behind the tattooed face', my favourite movie has to be TROY (I love seeing people 'in their power', I love New Zealand Reggae music, and my favourite food is creamed Paua aka Abilone (a native dish of Maori New Zealand. If you come and stay with me and my family you will experience laughter, learning, friendship, caring and FUN!:-) My 'job' is as a self employed educator and trainer in the field of Te Ao Maori (the Maori World). My motto for life is....ENJOY!
