From residents

"Meeting my expectations about its superb facilities; energetic, hard working and communicative management; excellent location; easy access to public transport.

"The location, in Mt Albert, is great. It takes only five minutes to walk to the dentist, doctor, pharmacy and optometrist and there are several good cafes nearby. We are very happy with our lovely apartment and really enjoy not having to think about maintenance of house and garden and feel very secure here. Lovely views too.

I never thought Id be living in a retirement village but for various reasons it seemed the right thing to do. Were very glad we chose Everil Orr when deciding to move from Wellington to Auckland and although we didn't see the apartment until the day we moved in were very happy residents."

"We're very happy with our lovely apartment. The large kitchen has lots of storage space and we really love the encloseable balcony which is almost like an extra room. Mt Albert is a lovely suburb too."

"Whenever we would go away on holiday, xxxx never wanted to come back home, always wanted to stay extra days, now she can't wait to come home"

"It's home" Weeks after a reluctant to move to retirement village resident had moved in, she had said it would never be home, she just had reasons to move closer to her kids.

Oceania Healthcare won the Supreme Award for Excellence in Care from the New Zealand Aged Care Association in both 2015 and 2016.

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.
