Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Wairarapa Village is a relaxing village retreat set in over three hectares of beautifully landscaped grounds, featuring hundreds of roses, beautiful walkways and a stream that runs through the village gardens. Just a 400 metre stroll away is the centre of Masterton, the heart of the Wairarapa.

Many of our residents have recreational and sporting interests outside the village and are fully engaged in the community. Wairarapa Village has a variety of facilities and social activities on offer with a dedicated social coordinator running a programme of events offering something for everyone.

Security is a priority, with the main gates automatically closed each night and regular secruity patrols through the evening 365 days a year.

Wairarapa Village offers a full continuum of care with a large range of independent living one and two bedroom villas, one bedroom serviced apartments, along with rest home and hospital care options.

If you or your loved ones are starting to struggle with life at home our serviced apartments provide the perfect balance between having care and support available when needed while being able to live independently.

Sometimes the extra support living in our village provides, makes all the difference.

“I’ve come into this serviced apartment and now I feel completely settled. It’s a great feeling.” Muriel Mulliner, Wairarapa Village serviced apartment resident.

Please contact the Village Manager Katie Riley on 06 370 6026 to talk through your personal needs if retirement village living is something you are considering.

After 30 years living in and around Lower Hutt, Muriel Mulliner searched high and low for affordable retirement village living in her local area. What she found was that her best retirement option was 83 kilometres away in downtown Masterton.

“There were a couple of issues when I first started looking at the retirement villages near where I lived in Lower Hutt. First were the prices I’d have to pay. Second there were waiting lists which weren’t very convenient for me,” says Muriel.

After deciding to look further afield, Muriel discovered Wairarapa Village in the heart of downtown Masterton. Now four happy months after moving in, it would be fair to say that so far this warm and welcoming village has ticked all the boxes. Muriel chose one of the village’s serviced apartments to call home.

“My serviced apartment has plenty of room for the things I need and it’s very comfortable. I also have my meals taken care of which I like. Cooking meals for just myself had become somewhat of a chore, but now I get my breakfast delivered each morning and I go to the dining room for my lunch and dinner,” she says.

“The location of Wairarapa Village is very convenient to the town. Plus the village van does a shopping trip for residents every Monday and Thursday.”

Even though Muriel is happy in her new home in Masterton, she still catches up with her friends back in Lower Hutt. In fact, she regularly takes the train back down south and meets up for lunch and a good natter!

Putting the affordable price and great location aside, Muriel is very happy with the move she has made. “The atmosphere is friendly and the staff are all kind and helpful”. There are plenty of activities in which to participate and she enjoys the beautifully landscaped grounds.

“I’ve come into this serviced apartment and now I feel completely settled. It’s a great feeling.”

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.
