Visitors with limitations - please call us first
Established over 100 years ago, we offer a range of residential aged care including independent living, rest home, secure dementia and hospital care.

Karori Village stands in just over 3/4 of a hectare, surrounded by established trees and mature gardens including roses, lavender and many other varieties of flowers as well as deciduous and evergreen trees. It overlooks the valley with glimpses of the harbour.

It is ideally located in the residential heart of Karori in Wellington.

Just a few minutes from Marsden Village, as well as the Karori Mall and 10 minutes from the centre of the city, it is well situated for shopping and is within walking distance from nearby cafes.

Karori Village offers a warm and caring environment for residents and provides a home away from home when total independence is no longer an option and additional support is needed.
