Rest Home Care: Edmund Hillary Retirement Village

Named after one of New Zealand’s greatest achievers, the Edmund Hillary Retirement Village provides a full range of retirement lifestyle options for the elderly.

The village is situated on Abbotts Way, opposite the Remuera Golf Club, with panoramic views across One Tree Hill, Mt Hobson and Mt Eden.

The village provides a full range of retirement lifestyle options along with the very best of resthome care from our friendly, caring staff.

The village features the latest designs in retirement living including architecturally designed Independent Townhouses & Apartments, Serviced Apartments and a Care Centre set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.

The village facilities are unprecedented in New Zealand, including an all-weather bowling green, petanque court, indoor heated swimming pool, spa, library, gymnasium, hair and beauty salon, shop, bar, internet cafe and so much more for residents to enjoy.

Location is everything with this village! Meadowbank, Eastridge and Remuera shopping malls are within easy reach, and the Eastern Suburb beaches are also close by.

Living at Edmund Hillary Retirement Village isn't about slowing down - it's about having time to do so much more!

We welcome your call.
