Summerset by the Dunes is our second village in the stunning Bay of Plenty and is located in the picturesque coastal town of Papamoa Beach. Once complete, it will offer 287 homes to choose from, including villas, cottages, serviced apartments and our state-of-the-art memory care apartments. With a range of brand-new homes to choose from including villas and cottages, there's never been a better time to visit our stunning village! Plus, we're now pre-selling* our serviced apartments which are perfect balance of independence and help on hand if you need it.

Our village centre will open early 2024, and will be home to a stunning range of resort-style facilities, a Ministry of Health certified care centre, serviced apartments and our award-winning memory care centre. Summerset's continuum of care means that should your needs change in the future, you will be able to access additional levels of care and support in your own home, in your serviced apartment or in our care centre (subject to availability). And, if you ever need ongoing care, as a resident you‘ll receive priority access, right up to hospital level and dementia care. You’ll always have peace of mind of knowing all support needs are taken care of without having to leave the village.

Once the Village Centre is complete, Summerset by the Dunes will be humming with a range of on-site activities and features. This includes a café, exercise room, library, hair salon, vegetable garden, bar, indoor swimming pool & spa pool, lounge, and barbeque facilities. An on-site Activities Coordinator will also be joining the team to organise events, outings, and activities every week.
Soak up all that your retirement has to offer in this stunning coastal community surrounded by some of New Zealand's most beautiful beaches. Not to mention, Summerset by the Dunes is only 4kms to Papamoa Plaza, and 20 minutes drive to Tauranga City or popular Mount Maunganui.

*Licence to Occupy. Please note, all images are indicative only. The Village Centre and Care Centre will be open approximately early 2024.

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.
