Winner: 2019 Trusted Brand Aged Care & Retirement Villages

At Margaret Stoddart Retirement Village, we’re dedicated to caring for you now and into your future. It’s comforting for couples at different stages in their health to know that they can be cared for within the same Ryman village, by the same Ryman team.

We provide independent living and assisted living in serviced apartments, and resthome care.

Providing the full range of living and care options is just one of Ryman’s points of difference.

When Ryman Healthcare was founded over 35 years ago, our co-founder Kevin Hickman thought about what he’d want for his own mother. He set one simple standard for the care we provide:
It’s got to be good enough for Mum.

Today, we not only uphold that same standard, we continue to raise the bar in retirement living and aged care.

Ryman offer some of the most resident-friendly and transparent terms in Australasia, with agreements written in plain language so they are easy for everyone to understand.

Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your townhouse, guaranteed.* And our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

Leading innovation is something that Ryman are becoming renowned for. Our seasonal Delicious menu is made fresh on site by in-house village chefs. If you ever feel like letting someone else doing the cooking, you can choose from three main courses, including a vegetarian option. We also cater for special dietary requirements.

Just like our Delicious meals, our individually frozen meals are made fresh, using only natural ingredients. The ready-to-eat meals are very reasonably priced and are available to purchase from the village café or reception.

We’ve developed our own ACC accredited Triple A exercise programme. Catering for all ability levels, this free programme improves strength, balance and mobility. Our Engage activities programme provides events and activities for residents, such as the weekly Happy Hour, arts and crafts, and outings in the village van.

Having daily activities and events to look forward to, combined with a friendly village environment, is what life is all about. It’s those moments of shared joy and laughter. Because At Ryman villages, we create the kind of community that our residents grew up in – connected and caring.

The location of this boutique village allows residents to take advantage of the many amenities that Riccarton and the central city provide.
To balance this, the village is tucked away from the hustle and bustle, and the tranquility of Hagley Park is just up the road.

Townhouses are designed with the over 70s in mind. Their spacious, well-considered layouts include kitchens and bathrooms that make daily life easy for you. For your peace of mind, call bells are monitored 24 hours a day by on-site staff, and we have 24-hour security to ensure your safety at all times.

Amenities include a hair salon, library, indoor bowls and bar.

As a Ryman village, Margaret is part of a brand that, since 2014, has repeatedly won the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand: Aged Care and Retirement Villages award. And we’ve been awarded the gold medal four times in the Reader’s Digest Quality Service award.

Of all the large providers (with 15 villages or more) in New Zealand, Ryman has the highest number of care centres with 4 years’ certification – the ‘gold standard’ in care – from the Ministry of Health. Margaret Stoddart is one such village that has achieved this ‘gold standard’ in care.

The Lifestyle at Maragret Stoddart Retirement Village has so many wonderful aspects. However, we appreciate that everyone has different needs and expectations. Which is why we encourage you to come and visit.

Compare Ryman terms with other retirement village providers, find out what care options they provide for the future, and join in with the activities or events on offer. That way, you’ll obtain a real appreciation of village lifestyle, and whether you can see yourself living there.

We look forward to introducing you to our wonderful community.

We have been impressed with the special team at Margaret Stoddart.We cannot speak highly enough of this boutique village.The ambience and atmoshpere of the whole complex reassured us Mum and Aunt were safe and being well cared for.
Many thanks for the comfort and tranquility provided for our family members in their golden years, which greatly added to the enrichment of their journey through life.

I have enjoyed eight happy years in my independent villa. With a recent health upset I spent time in the village rest home.
I experienced outstanding care from dedicated staff. Nursing at it's best.I have now returned to my villa and am filled with gratitude for all of these lovely woman in whatever capacity they served. Frances

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.
