The Sanderson Group Story

Family Owned and Operated

The Sanderson’s purchased their first site in 1987, and together with their young children, they commenced development of Omokoroa Country Estate. The children have now grown up, and after obtaining university education and work experience, have joined the family business. Sanderson Group has continued to grow into the success it is today by having a clear vision, a desire to provide luxury retirement living through the Bay of Plenty and Waikato, and by maintaining a simple philosophy; ‘if it’s not good enough for our family it certainly isn’t good enough for our residents’


The successful developments carried out by Sanderson Group comprise of:


Bethlehem Shores 2013
Bethlehem Lodge In Progress

Cascades 2003
Metlifecare The Avenues 1997
Metlifecare Bayswater 1995
