Description
Somervale is a boutique intimate village. It has a 'homely’ and friendly atmosphere, along with its perfect location, will win your heart as it has many others over the years.

If you or your loved ones are starting to struggle with life at home our serviced apartments provides the perfect balance between support and care. WATCH THIS SPACE - NEW CARE HOME COMING (currently under construction). The new care home has been designed with groups of pods made up of resident rooms, shared kitchen, dining room and lounge, encouraging greater interaction between residents and a more homely environment.

"When Mum was still at home we'd have to spend time doing the vacuuming, the laundry and things like that. Now we come in, enjoy each other's company and make the most of every moment we have together," says daughter of a Serviced Apartment resident.

Somervale is close to Mt Maunganui's Bayfair Shopping Centre and the beach, the village is designed for your safety, convenience and comfort.
Our villas and serviced apartments are all on flat ground and have pretty gardens, with plenty of parking.

The village is close to bowling clubs, community clubs and medical facilities, and we have a range of recreational facilities and social activities right on your doorstep.

All outdoor maintenance is taken care of, so you have the freedom to do whatever you like doing.

Somervale has a range of accommodation choices that allow for completely independent living through to hospital care.

Somervale celebrated it's 30 year anniversary on the 6 May 2015
