Visitors with limitations - please call us first
Nestled in the heart of Kumeu wine country, overlooking Kumeu River winery and surrounded by picturesque grounds, Kumeu Village is a rest home with a difference.

We don’t just care for our residents – we’re on a mission to provide a real home, rich with experiences and companionship. Kumeu Village is a true community where our elders can live active and varied lives with autonomy and dignity.

With the Eden Alternative philosophy at the heart of all we do, we’re working every day to create a new standard of rest home care and comfort.

Our staffing ratios are almost double the Ministry of Health standard recommendations. That means residents have the freedom to live how they like – not managed for our own convenience.

Residents can bring their pets, we don’t have set times for meals or ‘bedtime’, there are spontaneous activities throughout the day, there is choice with what and where people want to eat, and a residents action group so that the residents decide what they want from their home.

Our home was founded with the belief that our elders deserve to enjoy their lives, supported by kind, respectful care. To us, that means running our business with love and compassion. We look inwards to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of residents, and outwards to support the people and communities who care for them.

"We are so lucky to have this amazing place for my dad to live and thrive in."

"Awesome...... my mum was treated like a queen. The complex an staff were amazing. That is how our elderly SHOULD be looked after. Many rest homes should take a leaf out of their book!!"

"Amazing place, my grandmother lives there and she has the best care. All the staff are lovely and friendly. All residents are well cared for. 10/10"

"All I can say is Amazing! If there were ten stars, my family and I would rate 10. It is truley the Garden of Eden. Tribute to Belinda, Georgia, Dayna, and all the staff. Thank you."
