Why choose a retirement village in North Shore and West Auckland?

From Takapuna to Whangaparoa, Browns Bay to New Lynn, Devonport to Silverdale, there’s so much diversity you’ll find it hard to choose - from apartments and townhouses to villas. Some are built on land rich in history, like Hobsonville or Devonport, while others have been established long enough to have their own history. Some are designed for a particular group of retirees – there’s a Dutch village – while others are new and you might be lucky enough to be one of the foundation residents and shape the village’s ethos and history yourself.

If you’re thinking about retirement in this region, we’re here to help. Perhaps you’re looking for a relaxed coastal lifestyle? Or are you keen on bush walks and getting back to nature? Do the city shops and cafes beckon? Or are you looking to live near extended family?

Whatever you choose, you’ll have so many options to choose from, while also being close to Central Auckland, and an easy drive away from the beaches and laidback lifestyle of Northland.

What Retirement Villages have to offer

Thumbs up for Retirement Villages

A retirement village is a community specially built to cater for the needs and lifestyle of older people. Choosing to live in a retirement village can be a great option for those wanting to maintain their independence while living among a like-minded community of people.

Research shows most people enjoy a high level of satisfaction when living in a lifestyle or retirement village. For residents, the benefits can be numerous; these may include giving you peace of mind, new and varied activities and interests, new friendships, and time to be able to spend on the things you most enjoy.

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 offering a wide range such as swimming pool, bowling green and café. Eligibility age differs across villages too – some villages may allow residents to enter at 55 while others commonly have an entry age between 65 and 75.

As well as providing a range of different accommodation options, many villages now offer alternatives, such as care suites, which combine village offerings and residential care components. Make sure you visit a village more than once before you make a decision, and if possible visit more than one village to get a feel for how each has its own culture.
