Pinesong truly is a slice of heaven, nestled in the heart of Titirangi – Auckland’s greenest suburb. The village has a sweeping 180 degree sea view and is set in 8 hectares of lush gardens and a beautiful native bush reserve, offering great peace and tranquility.

The gently undulating landscape is a perfect setting for our spacious, up-market apartments and townhouses. You will have the choice of living in an independent unit/apartment or a serviced apartment. Our serviced apartments cater for those who want to keep their privacy and independence but need support with daily tasks.

"When Mum was still at home we'd have to spend time doing the vacuuming, the laundry and things like that. Now we come in, enjoy each other's company and make the most of every moment we have together," says daughter of a Serviced Apartment resident.

Come and experience this charming village and exceptional lifestyle for yourself.

For more information or a private tour, please call Allan Kay on 09 817 0464.
Most people start slowing down when they’re in their 80’s, but for Joan Fulljames, the easy, peace-of-mind serviced apartment living at Pinesong has given her the freedom to thrive.

After 60 years living in the beautiful bush clad suburb of Titirangi, Pinesong was top of the list, when Joan decided it was time to move out of the family house. With her husband passing away, she had become somewhat isolated and really missed the companionship that had always been such a big part of her life.

“We lived in three different houses in Titirangi, each one of them well off the main road, so it was always very peaceful, but they weren’t the kind of places where people just dropped by. When you’re by yourself, you don’t really want to be stuck in the bush, which is one reason Pinesong appealed,” says Joan.

“Here I have an apartment with doors that open out into a courtyard – there are people passing by and regularly popping in, plus I’ve got great mates just down the hallway. There’s a real community here and I love it.”

Joan has a mobility scooter which gives her the freedom to explore many parts of Auckland via the West Auckland rail line. But Joan’s travel itinerary isn’t just limited to Auckland. A few years back she had a major overseas excursion that included visits to New York, London and Paris!

“One of the best things about having a Pinesong serviced apartment is that I can lock up, go away and know that everything is safe and sound.”

Joan has now been a serviced apartment resident for almost 3 years and she wouldn’t change a thing. “I really couldn’t be in a better place.”

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. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
