Powley Retirement Village is a pretty garden sanctuary with a wonderful old world charm and community spirit. Nestled among peaceful English gardens in the heart of Blockhouse Bay, Powley offers residents the conveniences and security of village life, with the beauty of the bay a short stroll away. City amenities are here, too – Powley is an easy bus ride from Lynn Mall Shopping Centre and Auckland Central.

We have the option of a one or two-bedroom cottage. offering modern kitchens, large sized bedrooms and some with a conservatory or private outdoor deck. All cottages are architecturally designed and within walking distance to neighbours and recreational facilities. In addition, each cottage is surrounded by spacious and picturesque gardens that reflect the seasons.

You have the option to take care of household tasks or choose from a range of service and care packages delivered to you in your home. Spacious serviced apartments are designed for residents who require additional services such as cleaning, regular meals and personal care services. If you ever need greater daily support, Powley offers rest home and residential hospital level care on-site. Help is always a button-push away for any resident, thanks to our 24-hour emergency call system.

Village amenities include a barbeque area, dining room, games room, hairdressing salon, chapel, library, lounge, petanque terrain, pool table and spa pool. We offer cleaning services and take care of all external maintenance, so residents have time to enjoy activities that mean most to them. Our friendly village offers many social opportunities, which make it easy for neighbours to get to know each other.

Powley is part of Metlifecare, one of the largest retirement village operators in New Zealand. All Metlifecare villages offer residents added assurances including fixed village fees, no hidden costs, no capital loss and priority access over non-Metlifecare residents to any Metlifecare Care Home (subject to availability).

Testimonials
“I had a few struggles downsizing my home but coming here has taken a real weight off my shoulders and the entire family, who really appreciate the fact that I’m in a safe environment and in such good hands. There’s also plenty to keep a guy like me busy – with various excursions to go on, organised activities, bbq’s and of course the popular Happy Hour every Friday.” - Bob Brown, serviced apartment 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.
