Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Located in the heart of Mount Maunganui with Bayfair shopping centre close at hand, the Mount’s famously beautiful beach and Omanu Golf course nearby, you can enjoy the best of both worlds when you retire at Somervale Village – the convenience of city living and the tranquillity of a relaxed lifestyle.

The Village is currently under development and will soon have a new lease on life with a complete modernisation underway.

The spacious and open-plan community centre will include everything you can wish for. From the café, library and billiards table to a large indoor pool, spa and gym with many more activities on offer. Be a part of shaping the new village vibe in this luxury environment.

The apartments in the first stage and the community centre are being built with a range of modern 2 and 3-bedroom independent living apartments with an expected completion date of *late 2024.

Stage 1 apartments are selling now. Book an appointment with Jamie Sparrow on 07 572 9090 to view plans and to find out more information on how you can make this your next home.

Somervale is part of Metlifecare, one of the largest retirement village operators in New Zealand.

"Everything I ever need is just a short walking distance away"

"Why would I want to spend more money on the bigger, newer villages when I have everything I need here, and money in the bank"

"It's the friendliness, the acceptance; I have come home"

"Whether you are wearing your pearls and best dress or walking down to the pool with your dressing gown thrown over your togs (you found after 30 years) you feel comfortable and it's home"

"I felt like I had died and gone to heaven" - new resident survey comments.

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.
