Some people think that moving into a retirement village signals the beginning of the end. For Les and Judy Remnant, nothing could have been further from the truth.

Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

With Kerikeri’s mild winters, stunning scenery, wealth of outdoor pursuits and artisan producers, it has long been a desirable destination. Located in the heart of town and handy to local attractions and clubs, the lifestyle offered at Oakridge Villas capitalises on the long sunny days and laid-back nature.

Right on their doorstep, the village boasts a superb country lodge themed community centre. The luxurious yet relaxed Pavilion features all the recreational and activity facilities attributed to the social heart of this friendly village and is a great gathering place for residents and their families.

A vibrant community is growing here with a host of leisure opportunities to suit everyone. In fact, Oakridge Villas’ fun-loving and community-spirited residents have won Kerikeri’s Christmas Parade Float three years consecutively.

Surrounded by beautiful, lush gardens and stylish self-contained villas, these homes are light and warming environments featuring open plan living with two bedrooms and three bedrooms available.

We invite you to come and explore further, so pop along to our next open day or stop by between 10am and 4pm any day – feel free to bring family and friends if you wish.

Private 2-bedroom deluxe villa - Pompallier Place


Bed 2 Bath 1 Car 1 Floor Area 119m2

Property Type: Villa

Looking for something a little private? Then this north-facing, sunny deluxe 2-bedroom villa at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac maybe just the ticket. Enjoy the generous living area with an open plan...

Some people think that moving into a retirement village signals the beginning of the end. For Les and Judy Remnant, nothing could have been further from the truth.

The Kerikeri couple had lived in the local area for 22 years. While they certainly didn’t want to move away, they did want to live in a home that was easier to manage than the 3 level, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house which they also ran as a bed and breakfast.

It was a big house to take care of and after Les had a knee operation, he wasn’t that keen on ‘walking up and down the stairs all day’. After looking at various options, Oakridge Villas was the standout choice.

One of the biggest benefits of living at Oakridge Villas is the freedom the lifestyle allows. In particular the ability to lock up and leave your home, and have the peace of mind that everything will be safe and secure while you are away.

Which is absolutely perfect for Les and Judy who head away in their 25ft caravan for many weeks at a time. “Last Christmas we went on tour for six weeks and last month we did another three weeks staying in places like Taupo and Wellington. We can go away and completely forget about the house. When we come back, the lawns are mowed and everything else is just as we left it,” he says.

From time to time Oakridge Villas hosts retirement seminars, to give prospective residents the chance to find out more about village lifestyle. Les often speaks at these talks to give a residents’ perspective of life there.

“The biggest point I make is that it’s best to move into the village before you have to, not when you have to. The other thing I always mention is forgetting any preconceptions you have about living in a retirement village. There are certainly people that have come into the village feeling a bit pessimistic, but in a very short space of time they fall in love with the fantastic lifestyle,” says Les.

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.
