Villages vary greatly – you’ll notice different-sized villages, from very few units to some with hundreds; different types of units within the same complex; newer villages and older villages. You will discover the community facilities can vary, with some villages offering a wide range such as a swimming pool, bowling green and café, and others only a basic meeting room. So too will the services offered differ from village to village.
You’ll get a much better idea about what each village offers by visiting them in person and talking to other residents who live there. A great way to start the process and start creating a list of ‘must-sees’ is via retirementvillages.co.nz
