*** Somervale village tours and sales of independent living units and serviced apartments are currently on hold due to a proposed redevelopment of the village. If you would like further information about Metlifecare villages in the Bay of Plenty please visit:

Somervale is a smaller more intimate village. Some call it ‘homely’ and its friendly atmosphere and perfect location will win your heart. Residents tell us that neighbours quickly become family in this cosy seaside community.

It’s perfectly positioned – just three minutes to white sand beaches and with Bayfair Shopping Centre, the Bay of Plenty’s biggest shopping centre, right on your doorstep. The village is also surprisingly affordable – you will not find better value for the location.

Our units and brand-new deluxe flexi-services apartments are all on flat ground and are surrounded by pretty gardens, with plenty of parking. The village is close to bowling clubs, community clubs and medical facilities, and we have a range of recreational facilities and social activities right on your doorstep.

All outdoor maintenance is taken care of, so you have the freedom to do whatever you like doing. Experienced staff are available 24/7 for added security and to take care of your needs.

We also have a full continuum of care, in the form of Flexi-Services Apartments and Care Home, should you need it. Somervale’s modern independent flexi-services apartments which allow residents to choose the services they want are a wonderful addition to the village. Housed alongside our boutique homestead model Care Home with its family orientated spaces, they provide peace of mind living.

Somervale is part of Metlifecare, one of the largest retirement village operators in New Zealand. All Metlifecare villages offer residents added assurances including fixed village fees, no hidden costs, no capital loss and continuum of care with priority access over non-Metlifecare residents to any Metlifecare Care Home (subject to availability). For more information on Somervale, please make an enquiry.

"I felt like I had died and gone to heaven" - new resident survey comments.
"Everything I ever need is just a short walking distance away"
"Why would I want to spend more money on the bigger, newer villages when I have everything I need here, and money in the bank"
"It's the friendliness, the acceptance; I have come home"
"Whether you are wearing your pearls and best dress or walking down to the pool with your dressing gown thrown over your togs (you found after 30 years) you feel comfortable and it's home"

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.
