Enliven’s Huntleigh Apartments offer a modern retirement lifestyle in the central Wellington suburb of Karori. From the great social life to the fantastic community spirit, right through to the perfect location, purpose-built facilities and friendly staff, Huntleigh Apartments by Enliven has it all. 

Huntleigh Apartments have been purpose-built to provide modern and secure retirement living. The one and two bedroom apartments are bright, light, warm, and just the right size. Each apartment boasts a sunny courtyard or balcony and spacious living areas.

The apartments include:
- an open plan living – lounge, dining and kitchen
- kitchen appliances – a hob, oven, dishwasher, range hood and fridge
- 24/7 swipe card access to the apartment complex
- a private courtyard or balcony(s)
- a heat pump/air conditioning
- quality curtains or blinds
- carpet and slip resistant vinyl flooring
- full insulation.

Enliven’s Huntleigh Apartments provide independent living, but with the security of knowing our friendly team is never far away if you need them. As a resident, you are, of course, free to do whatever you like, when you like. But you can be confident that our friendly team is on hand to offer the support and security you need. 

One of the best things about a move to Huntleigh Apartments is you can focus on enjoying your retirement while we take care of the rest. We’ll look after the property maintenance and gardening; we even offer meals and housekeeping services.

If there comes a time that you or your spouse needs extra support, as a resident of an Enliven retirement village, you’ll be given preferential entry into Enliven’s rest homes. Neighbouring Huntleigh Home offers short and long term rest home and hospital care, health recovery and a day programme, making it a perfect option for couples who need different levels of support but want to remain close-by.

“I honestly believe that this was the best move I could have ever made. My life has continued on as normal with the same friends, interests and hobbies like I always did, but now I don’t have to worry about the hard work – Enliven takes care of that. And I know help is available from the adjoining rest home if I ever need it.”
– Kay, Huntleigh Apartments resident.

“We don’t live in each other’s pockets, but we’ve got communal library, lounge and dining areas, along with a beautiful courtyard garden. We often take advantage of these for social events. It’s a perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbours, and everyone here is really friendly.”
– Graeme, Huntleigh Apartments resident.

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.
