The retirement village lifestyle.

The right village, one that truly fulfils your needs and expectations, can help enrich your quality of life and enable you to pursue your later years in the way you want to.

You can continue to live life independently, with the reassurance of the support and amenities our villages each provide. It doesn’t matter whether you are 55 or 90 years of age; it’s a lifestyle that can be enjoyed by all. All our villages are located in prime areas, close to their communities and within easy reach to public amenities.

Across our villages we offer options different sized units with a variety of bedroom and living configurations. Some villages have an emphasis on 'lifestyle' facilities, while others provide a full range of care options so our residents can enjoy the best of the village for as long as they want.

The types of accommodation we offer will vary from stand-alone villas to townhouses to apartments, as well as serviced apartments. All our villages offer a range of recreation facilities, based on a hub around a community centre.

Don Fleming

Resident at Pakuranga Park

We love the friendliness.”

Don has lived all his 90 years to the full. Joining the air force, he’s had postings to Cyprus, Malta, Egypt, the Middle East, USA and around New Zealand. While in London for four years at the High Commission, he represented High Commissioner, Sir Denis Blundell at official occasions. Called to the Lord Chamberlain’s office at Buckingham Palace, he was appointed one of 10 ‘Extra Gentleman Ushers’ to Her Majesty The Queen, for her lifetime, attending numerous state occasions such as the garden parties – he loved the perk of having a car park at the Palace!

Back home, the now Wing Commander took on various projects as well as acting as ADC to the Governor-General. After the air force he enjoyed a successful business career and today is currently writing a book on women in aviation.

He and Ila, a teacher, have been married for 67 years and for much of his career Ila has been with Don around the world with their three boys.

Resident at Epsom Village

I've no regrets at all moving into life at Epsom Village”

It is a compact site so close to frequent public transport; I’ve found visits to either Auckland Hospital or Greenlane Day clinics are a breeze. While further afield, Newmarket, Britomart, Wynyard Quarter or the Auckland Museum are just as easy to reach using public transport.

For more flexibility and longer journeys, the village have provided an electric car for us to use – free of any charges. A simple booking system is in place.

Another aspect of village life I’ve enjoyed is the inherent feeling of security. Going away on holiday is a simple matter of locking up the front door, making sure enough windows are open for adequate ventilation and advising the office of the anticipated nights I’ll be away. Even my mail continues uninterrupted.


Resident at Remuera Gardens

Be grateful for every day. It is easy when you live here”

I have been in Remuera Gardens now for 8 months. How lucky am I to find myself in this lovely peaceful, tranquil place?

The gardens are such a delight, some new plant appearing, it seems every day. The gardeners are so dedicated to keeping it beautiful for our enjoyment.

This is a small village and feels like an extended family. I didn’t know anyone here when I arrived but was made to feel very welcome straight away. The staff are part of the family as well, so charming and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble.

I love my garden apartment with all my treasures around me and feel so completely at home and happy. One of my favorite places is the pool, but I’m not going to tell you too much about it because I love having it all to myself.

Reception at Warkworth Oaks

Our residents are unique and you build a special bond with them”

My connection to Warkworth goes back many generations and I am delighted to be working back in town after a career as a committee secretary for the council.

My primary role is as receptionist, but I do so much more! No day at Warkworth Oaks is ever the same. Organising activities, social functions, and assisting residents with a myriad of tasks. I support the manager and sales manager and I know a lot about the running of the village.
