Gracelands Retirement Village offers independent living as well as a Rest Home and Hospital Facility.

Our lovely Village is nestled in the heart of sunny Hawkes Bay, world famous for its vineyards and art deco.

Village facilities include a large Community Centre which provides indoor bowls, a large heated spa pool and a billards table. There is also a library which once a month acts as a church.

Gracelands Village has an active Residents Committee who provides lots of activities, fun and entertainment.

Gracelands is owned by Oceania Healthcare, an operator of 50 retirement villages and rest homes across New Zealand.

“For myself moving to Gracelands was a case of making the change before you get too old. I had some reservations, but it’s turned out very good indeed. There are so many things organised for our entertainment. Like on ANZAC night we had a happy hour with a pianist – we all had a great sing along. Our manager who runs the place is absolutely marvellous.” Verna Lisk

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.
