Moved into village (with wife) about 2 years & 9 months ago. Would I do it again? Answer is yes.
Apartments are small, but get used to size. Prices cannot be bettered. Location excellent. Well worth 2 or 3 visits to get feel of place.
Community living allows for privacy of own apartment, but socialise in lounge, conservatory, activities etc. Soon make a new friend.
Security excellent, manager available by phone 24 hours.
Special memory: Ambulance called at 4 am. Ambulance staff arrive, with Denise (manager) 2 steps behind. Thanks Denise.
Owner- Jimmy, Manager- Denise, Staff- Karen: all are honorable and a pleasure to deal with.

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.
