Make your home at Riversdale Village

When it comes to everyday life, Riversdale village makes it easy with attractive homes ranging from one to two bedrooms.

Part of the Taradale community in Napier, Riversdale offers you independence, community and security just a hop, skip and a jump from the Taradale shopping centre where you’ll find all the essentials. A short drive from there and you’re in the Napier city centre.

We offer everything from hairdressing to podiatry and meals on site. We have a range of recreational and social activities including indoor and outdoor bowls, petanque, pool/snooker, garden club, a swimming pool and spa pool. Our Resident Committee also organises outings.

Special Features
Special Features
Our village offers spacious and attractive homes varying from one to two bedrooms.

Some of our residents call us 'boutique' - we have no plans in the future for expansion and thus enjoy a 'smaller village feel' even though we have 57 units.

The one bedroom homes vary in size but all have their own garden and access. They are very cozy and warm with their own conservatories. Some have their own garage, others have parking close by.

The two bedroom homes are very spacious, with well endowed kitchens, a hallway extending to a large main bedroom, spacious spare room, bathroom with walk-in shower and separate toilet and internal garage access.

A feature which becomes evident on entry to the village is the keen interest residents take in their gardens.

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.
