What's New

Brand New Winara Retirement Apartments

Retirement can be a time of opportunity, a time in which hobbies and personal interests can be indulged in. However, when the retirement years arrive, many people feel the need to keep a close eye on their nest-egg, to ensure that any future care needs can be taken care of.

For many people, the family home is the major asset, and in an ideal world, this would be mortgage-free by the time of retirement. However, home maintenance costs are generally ongoing , sometimes escalating as older folk find it difficult to maintain their homes without assistance. Under these circumstances, staying in the family home can become a catch-22.

Winara Retirement Village Apartments provide an excellent solution to this bind from only $232,000

Each apartment comes complete with a modern kitchen, full whiteware package including washer, dryer, disherwasher and fridge/freezer, open plan lounge and dining area and an ensuite bathroom. Residents can relax in the village community lounge, use the library, play indoor bowls – the list is lengthy! What’s more, if the need for greater care does eventuate, village residents enjoy priority access to our on-site rest home, and seven days of free respite care per year.

Retirement should be a time of freedom. If the freedom that Winara Retirement Village apartments offer appeals to you, call Lin today on 04 293 2591 or 027 242 6108 .

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
