Ryman Healthcare have been providing retirement living and care options within one village community for over 30 years. Putting residents first has always been our priority, and our terms, care and innovation are a direct reflection of this. Because at Ryman, it's all about people.

Winner: 2019 Trusted Brand Aged Care & Retirement Villages

The Bob Owens Retirement Village is named in honour of one of Tauranga’s most respected leaders. On Carmichael Road in Bethlehem, the village is part of the Ryman Healthcare Group with 32 villages throughout New Zealand. Conveniently located close to the Bethlehem Town Centre, the village features panoramic views of the Mount, the harbour and across the neighbouring reserves.

The Village provides a full range of retirement lifestyle options from independent villas and apartments, along with serviced apartments, resthome, hospital and dementia care.

The village features the latest designs in retirement living including architecturally designed Independent Townhouses and Apartments, Serviced Apartments, and a Care Centre, set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.

The resort-style facilities include an all-weather bowling green, and a Village Centre with a heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gymnasium, internal atrium, recreation room, beauty therapy and hairdressing salon, library and internet services, dining room, bar, lounges, shop and even a movie theatre! There is so much for residents to enjoy, including village events and outings.

The modern village design, together with the friendly, caring staff, means our residents enjoy the very best of retirement living and care.

Living at Bob Owens Retirement Village isn't about slowing down, it's about having time to do so much more!

We welcome your call.

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.
