From the friendly community spirit, right through to the plentiful gardens, purpose built villas and friendly staff, Brightwater Village by Enliven has everything you need to enjoy an independent and relaxed retirement.

Brightwater Village is conveniently located on Brightwater Terrace in Palmerston North. Its off-street location is peaceful, quiet and private, yet only a few minutes drive from the city’s square - the heart of the city and its many shops, malls, cafes and restaurants. Comprising of just seven villas, this charming village has been carefully laid out to give residents optimal privacy, sun and space. On sale, each villa is renovated to a high standard.

Enliven’s Brightwater Village provides independent living, but with the security of knowing our friendly team is never far away. As a resident of Enliven’s Brightwater Village you are, of course, free to do whatever you like, when you like. But you can be confident that our friendly team is on hand to offer the support and security you need.

At Enliven, we believe retirement is not about slowing down (unless you want to!); it’s about having the time to do the things you enjoy most. Enliven’s Brightwater Retirement Village has been designed to let you make the most of your retirement years.

If there comes a time that you or your spouse needs extra support, as a resident of an Enliven retirement village you’ll be given preferential entry into Enliven’s rest homes. Neighbouring Brightwater Home provides short-term respite and health recovery care. Plus, the home provides specialist hospital and dementia care making it a perfect option for couples who need different levels of support, but want to remain close-by.

Residents say:

“I love it! – Its bright and airy, the sun streams in, and I feel safe living alone.”

“It suits me down to the ground here, it really does. They are excellent villas and they have everything you need. You couldn’t wish for anything more.”

“There’s no outside work to do! All the lawns are mowed for you, the gardens are done, and the maintenance man does all the things that need doing.”

“The village coordinator comes around and she keeps an eye on everybody to make sure we’re all ok. If you need anything done she will see to it. You know help is close if you ever need it but you also live independently.”

The icing on the cake for the residents of Enliven’s Brightwater Village is knowing that by purchasing a villa, they’re investing in the future. As a not-for-profit organisation, all the proceeds from the sale of Enliven’s retirement villas and apartments are invested back into Enliven facilities, or into social services for vulnerable children and families provided by Family Works, which is also part of Presbyterian Support Central.

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.
