Restrictions - critical visitors only
Set in spacious, well laid out grounds and situated not too far from the centre of Invercargill, Peacehaven Village offers the ideal retirement living option. It features a safe and supportive community environment. At the same time Peacehaven Village encourages residents to enjoy the level of independence they are accustomed too but also to be able to take full advantage of the many social activities on offer. Being one of the original homes for older people in Invercargill, Peacehaven Village boasts a proud historic reputation for being a top quality care provider in the local Southland community.

There is currently more than a five year waiting list for our rental cottages, however we are presently able to take waiting list applications for rental accommodation.
To have a nice warm cottage and good company means a lot to me and to know that I will be well looked after by caring an thoughtful staff also means a lotto my family who are overseas. Job well done!

I lived on a farm all my life and when I came to Peacehaven I wasn't very happy. I felt lost but now I don't think I could be better looked after. The nurses and staff couldn't be better. I am well looked after. Thank you.
