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

How would you like to continue to live well in retirement, enjoying the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed would be yours? Aria Bay is a very special boutique community located in one of Auckland’s beautiful North Shore bays, with Browns Bay shopping centre, cafés, beach and social amenities all close by. With only a limited number of luxury homes available, our apartment community is relatively small.

We want all our residents to feel younger for longer and actively engaged in life. Aria Bay is a welcoming, inclusive community where the relationships and interests developed over a lifetime are treasured and nurtured. Visitors, friends and family are welcome to visit and enjoy our facilities and help us maintain our connection with the wider community.

To find out more about the attitude of living well and homes currently available contact Sharon on 021 618 913.

Quote from a residents family:

"Last night we went to see dad, he was super chipper and came out with the best thing I’ve heard all year. “I love it here, the staff and residents have made me feel welcome, I’m never moving again! And that Raquel is a fantastic driver”. On the inside I was doing a little happy dance.

You and your team are truly amazing.

Huge heartfelt thanks."

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
