Description
Named after the well-known New Zealand painter, the Grace Joel Retirement Village provides a full range of retirement lifestyle options for the elderly.

The village encompasses 360 degree views bringing the world to your window - along with a full and varied activities programme.

The resort-style facilities include an all-weather bowling green and a Village Centre with a heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gymnasium, grand internal atrium, beauty and hairdressing salons, library and internet services, bar, lounges, shop and much more! There is so much for residents to enjoy, including many outings and events.

The village is adjacent to a fully equiped medical centre containing a pharmacy, physiotherapist, podiatrist, dentist and a wide range of doctors and specialists.

With all the luxuries of a five star hotel, and a warm and friendly atmosphere, it’s no wonder our residents exclaim….

“its the only place to be!”
