Description
We believe some things make for happier, healthier living no matter what your age, and that is reflected in our small Village on the flat just back from Lake Wanaka.

The Pembroke Lounge and Courtyard are the hub of the Village and there's seldom a day goes by that laughter and chatter don't attract other Villagers to sit either outside or in, to chew over the fat.

Villagers love their gardens and what a picture they make. Personal floral preferences abound, cutting are swapped and secrets on growing conditions shared.

The Enliven principles of choice, activity, contribution, relationships, respect and security are alive and well at Wanaka Retirement Village.

The Manager lives on site to ensure any questions Villagers, their families and friends might have are answered promptly.

What's Not to Like?

That’s the question put by current residents to anyone considering moving to Wanaka Retirement Village.

“We all love it here and get on so well that we’ve developed quite a nice community spirit,” says Helen, who lives in an upstairs apartment.

Villa resident Pat agrees. “We have a very friendly community here and my neighbours are very good too,” she laughs,while holding daffodil bulbs given to her by a fellow Villager.

Former Villagers, now residents at Elmslie House, our Enliven care home which is literally just 10 metres away, continue to take part in our activities and say the social connections are an important part of Village living.

We see pets as part of the family and we have both cats and dogs enjoying Village life. They particularly bring joy to Villagers no longer able to look after their own pets.

Special Features
Special Features
The village is adjacent to Elmslie House, an Enliven care home that holds a rare Ministry of Health four-year operating certificate for ‘its extraordinary care and attention to those who live there’.

The villas and apartments are perfect for people wanting their own space but with the added security of knowing help is nearby if needed.

Built mainly of Oamaru Stone, clever use of cedar trim by Dunedin architect Sam Smith provides a visual warmth and soft appearance, enhanced by attractive landscaping and ample paving.

“Each of the 14 villas and eight apartments offer spaciousness and privacy, and our commitment to provide residents with top quality, affordable homes, is reflected in a long list of design features – many second to none. We know that residents will be delighted with their new homes,” says Manager Su Anderson.

Wanaka Retirement Village has been designed to enhance comfortable living right throughout the year.

Villagers are warm in winter because windows are double-glazed, and roof, wall and floor insulation is of a higher performance levels than usual. Villas have individual solar power to boost water heaters while apartment residents draw from two storage tanks pre-heated by solar panels. The attractive Southland beech used on all the doors and window frames is from a sustainably-‘managed forest.

Villagers enjoy the Pembroke Lounge featuring a kitchen, library, jigsaw table, pedal exerciser, comfortable lounge chairs and modern audiovisual equipment. The adjoining Pembroke Courtyard has outdoor furniture easily moved from sunny spots to shade as required.

Covered walkways edge the two-storey apartment complex both at ground level and level one, which is accessed by stairs and an elevator. Grassed squares add a ‘village green’ feel to the whole complex.

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.
