Shoal Bay Villa is located on Auckland’s sunny North Shore. We offer a totally obscure, secure home within a lovely garden setting.

Our 1920's villa provides many beautiful era characteristics including ornate fireplaces, grand ceilings, native timber flooring and stained glass features in some rooms. We have a variety of rooms - with or without ensuite - that all either open out onto a courtyard or garden.
We offer inviting and vibrant communal living spaces and more intimate, private areas available to those that enjoy quiet time.

Our skilled onsite chef’s provide our nutritious meals, 7 days a week. Each season introduces new meals which are cooked in our kitchen and are on a six week rotation for variety.

Offering subsidised and privately funded care, respite, carer support and day stay options, we welcome you to come and take a look at our home.
