Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Situated in leafy Papanui, The Bellevue is the latest addition to the Oceania family. In our brand new, boutique sized village you can enjoy the best of both worlds, with purpose-built amenities onsite and restaurants, bars and shops just a short drive away.

Our Village Offering
The Bellevue offers a choice of one, one-bedroom with a flexible second room, two or two-bedroom with a flexible third room apartments, which were completed March 20201. Whether you like to entertain, or simply enjoy your own space, you’ll love the flexibility and open plan design at The Bellevue. These brand new, proficiently designed apartments are spacious and well-considered, with quality fixtures and fittings, and flawless attention to detail. Relish the peace and comfort all year round with mod-cons including double glazing, a heat pump and extra soundproofing. Many apartments have an enclosable balcony with sliding glass doors for a sheltered outdoor space to enjoy in any season.

Active Village Life
Our proximity to Papanui's hub makes it easy for you to be a part of the community, so you can enjoy social activities as you’ve always done. If you don’t feel like venturing very far, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep. Wander down to Main Street, a space complete with indoor and outdoor lounge and dining areas, and a café. If it’s quiet time you crave, get pampered in the beauty salon or keep fit and head upstairs to the gym. And, there’s even more to look forward to. Stage 2 includes a cinema for you to relish the big screen experience, as well as an additional lounge space and outdoor seating area for socialising with neighbours.

Carefree Independence
Live life the way you want to, with the freedom to do the things you love. We’ll take care of all the maintenance - building repairs, exterior cleaning and the gardening too. Don’t feel like cooking? Homemade meals, fresh baking and barista made coffee are all available in Main Street. Knowing the weekly fee is fixed for life guaranteed means you can budget and have financial surety for the future.

A Continuum of Care
For assistance in an emergency, call bells in your apartment will connect you to trained staff 24 hours a day. If your needs change, The Bellevue has spacious, luxury Care Suites for both Rest Home and Hospital care. You can be sure you’re in good hands. Oceania has won the Supreme Care Award from the NZ Aged Care Association 3 years in a row.

Minimum age of entry for residents is 70 years.

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.
