Cargill is set within three acres of flat, landscaped gardens in Waikiwi and is situated close to the bus stop, supermarket, Church and the Waikiwi shopping area, yet away from the busy roads. We have a range of interesting activities that you can choose to join in. However, if you prefer your own company, that’s something we respect.

Please don’t hesitate to visit our village any time during business hours or contact Janet Hamlin ph. 6432158886. Mobile: 64274042747.

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.
