Visitors with limitations - please call us first
Built on the site of the original Corban Homestead, Waitakere Gardens offers a retirement lifestyle like no other. Not only are you surrounded by beautifully established grounds (in which you can indulge your green fingers to your heart’s content), you will also be surrounded by a modern, comfortable, easy-living environment.

As our name suggests, we are blessed with a gardening soul. So much so, our residents’ Eco Village was the Supreme Winner of the 2009 ARC Sustainable Environment Awards.

We are just as pleased to say we have also cultivated a wonderful community spirit and sense of belonging. You simply won’t find anywhere else quite like Waitakere 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.
