Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Our ethos here at The Vines is centered around enhancing your life during the finer years.
We provide you with everything you need to relax and simplify your environment so you can live freely.

Our village has been designed to feel both welcoming and sophisticated, surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds and modern villas. The community is secure and gated, with a 24-hour emergency call service, so help is never far away should you need it.

A lively social club and several supportive community groups have been established, fostering a sense of belonging, that will only evolve as our village does.

If you need a hand with something in your home or garden, our Vines team are ready, willing and able to help. But at the end of the day, your home is just that – yours. Your privacy is respected.

Perfectly positioned on what was once the iconic Mills Reef Winery, The Vines is just moments from the thriving Bethlehem township. Residents enjoy an easy stroll to fantastic amenities, boutique shopping and sensational dining, in the prestigious suburb of Bethlehem. The Vines is within walking distance to the local doctors, pharmacy and physiotherapy practices.

Bethlehem’s superb locality promises convenient access to all main arterial routes. Seaside mecca Mount Maunganui is a short drive across the harbour bridge; its golden sands and scenic walkways are an attractive drawcard.

The iconic Mills Reef winery building, once an art deco-styled winery and event space, is set to become “The Vines Clubhouse”.
The Vines has been developed with a gold-class lifestyle in mind, so it is apt that its clubhouse will be the village’s ‘gem of a building’.

Whether you prefer to be in close reach of others, or enjoy your own space, we have the home to suit you. Choose from one of our two or three bedroom villas, in detached and duplex configurations.

To find out more about what it is like to live at The Vines, call us on 07 578 0525 and we can answer any questions and show you around.

Comments from one our residents - "I looked at numerous living options but my decision came down to design and no one could do better than The Vines. The houses are beautifully finished and I loved the look of the gardens. I have a chapel ceiling in my living room, which is a gorgeous feature but also gives a wonderful sense of space. Another drawcard was the lifestyle - The Vines is not a rest home and I like that. Everyone here is still living a very active life - there’s always something to get involved with. I’m secretary of the Resident’s Committee and have joined the book club. It’s still early days so, as time goes on, dynamics will change and opportunities grow.

Also, the people are very nice, welcoming and friendly. I toddled off to happy hour the first night, not knowing quite what to expect, but everyone was just so welcoming.”

Hi All,
I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU once again for your entire team there at The Vines.
I have to eat my words big time about what I’ve felt about retirement villages in general.
Me and my family are entirely grateful for all that you did for my Mum. I always thought retirement villages were a rip off, but I can see why people are flocking to them now. I just wish my Mum had more time there. As I told you when I saw you last my Mum was more unhappy leaving her lovely villa at The Vines than leaving her house of 30+ years. That is a great testament to her short time there.
I hope the new resident loves it as much as Mum did, and most importantly gets more quality time there.
Kind regards, Megan

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.
