Enliven, the trusted name in positive ageing services, is excited to bring to the Wairarapa the very best in modern retirement living with Kandahar Village.

Situated just off Totara Street, Lansdowne, these architecturally designed, modern villas are situated to make the most of the Wairarapa sunshine. You’ll find the villas to be light and bright in summer and warm and snug in winter.

Enliven, known for our holistic approach to care, has crafted Kandahar Village with retirees in mind. This meticulously designed development offers 52 private villas with Lifemark 4 accessibility features signifying thoughtfulness and consideration for the ageing process.

Moving to Kandahar Village means you can continue to live your life your way.

You can sit back, relax and enjoy retirement with peace of mind knowing you are part of a supportive community and help is on hand if you need it.

The villas at Kandahar Village have been modelled on Enliven’s sought-after Kowhainui Villas in Whanganui – so we already know you’ll feel right at home. Residents tell us they love the modern, light, sunny and spacious villas and there’s always a waiting list to join the popular village.

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 Kandahar Village has been designed to let you make the most of your retirement years.

The icing on the cake for the residents of Enliven’s Kowhainui 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.
