Visitors with limitations - please call us first
Located opposite Auckland’s stunning Botanic Gardens, Elmwood offers a range of options for aged care and retirement living, including one-bedroom cottages and one and two-bedroom villas for independent living, and a choice of standard and premium care rooms, including Care Suites.

Being just around the corner from the Southern Motorway with easy-access to public transport, it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or take you out and about to local shops and cafes. The Auckland Botanic Gardens offer 64-hectares of beautiful gardens and native forest to explore, as well as a fantastic on-site café that makes the perfect spot for catching up with friends and family.

Family-friendly is how we’re often described by our residents - and we certainly live up to that reputation! From the staff who greet you in the hallways, to the fresh and inviting living spaces, at Elmwood you’ll feel right at home. Our main lounge is a vibrant hub of activity. Follow the music and laughter to find a friend to chat to, or to join in the day’s events. Or if it’s peace and quiet you crave, explore the bountiful gardens, or relax in a comfy chair in one of our many cosy nooks.

We don’t have visiting hours at Elmwood because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. Just like at home, friends and family can join you anytime for a cuppa and catch up.

Elmwood offers the rare opportunity to retire in a comfortable and affordable villa in Auckland. Whether you like to entertain, or simply enjoy your own space, you’ll love the relaxed feel and open-plan living at Elmwood. From recently built one and two-bedroom villas, to cosy one-bed cottages, there’s a choice to suit all budgets and lifestyles.

Oceania is a leading provider of premium healthcare services in New Zealand. With over 40 locations across the country, we’ve been part of local communities for over 50 years. We’re recognised as industry leaders in care, winning awards for innovation, food, staff training and community engagement.

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.
