Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Welcome to The Wood, an Arvida Retirement Village close to the heart of Nelson.

The Wood Retirement Village offers luxury retirement living, security and care in a happy, home-like environment. We have a dedicated team of trained staff, whose focus is on “positive ageing”, ensuring needs are met while providing excellence thoughout our continuum of care.

The Wood Retirement Village is centrally located close to the Milton Street shops, parks, gardens and just minutes from Nelson’s CBD. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens you’ll find tastefully designed Villas, Serviced Apartments and Studios, our Rest Home and Hospital.

If you are looking for a retirement community where you can continue to enjoy life to the full, and where people respect and look after each other, we’d love the opportunity to show you around our village.

Why not give us a call and experience life at Arvida for yourself?
