This service provider has not received any reviews yet.

Wesley Village’s 32 villas, flats and townhouses provide homely rental accommodation options for independent living without the concerns of property maintenance.

If you enjoy living without the ties of ownership, our villas, flats and town houses offer a variety of homely environments set in a beautiful, sheltered gardens.

Wesley Village does not require ‘licence to occupy’ or ‘home purchase’ agreements. We believe that asking residents to forego 20-30% of their equity while not being able to share in any future capital gains is rather unfair. We prefer to offer rental options to suit your needs.

At Wesley Village you are able to live independently, privately and at modest rental levels. The Villas and Ricketts Court Town Houses provide reasonably priced rental accommodation for older people within the vibrant and friendly community of Wesley Village.

Our philosophy is to help people achieve and maintain a quality of life they control and enjoy.

Wesley Village with its extensive gardens and stunning views is nestled amongst the hills of the Eastern Hutt Valley.

“Like living in a little bit of heaven.”

“It’s very peaceful because we’re tucked away in the bush, it’s so quiet here.”

“It’s more social here than when I was in my own home by 10,000 times. Oh yes. When I first came in it was Christmas and I had people from all round the island call into see me when they were down here. It was my birthday the other day and I had some friends from Te Puke come into see me.”

“You get an amazing view, at night time all the street light up like a Christmas tree, that bus service is superb. Get on the bus, sit anywhere you like. Every 15 minutes it goes.”

“The grounds are nice, beautifully kept, we go for walks in the warmer months. The gardens are so nicely looked after.”

“We take a personal interest in the clients; the residents here are not just a number.”
