Awatere Retirement Village

Formerly Trevellyn


If you’re looking for the perfect balance for retirement living, Awatere ticks all the boxes. Our friendly close-knit community provides plenty of opportunities for recreation and social engagements, and being centrally located in the heart of Beerescourt, all the amenities you could need are close at hand.


Our Village Living Offering

Whether you like to entertain, or simply enjoy your own space, you’ll love the relaxed feel and open-plan living at Awatere. There is a choice of apartments to suit your individual needs and lifestyle with 1 and 2 bedroom options. We currently have a new apartment block and community centre under construction that will offer 2 and 2+ bedroom apartments. 


Active Village Life

Many of our residents are active in the community enjoying social activities at local clubs and societies. Handy to highways and arterial routes, and with public transport outside the gate, it’s a breeze to get to local shopping centres or eateries. If you don’t feel like venturing very far, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep in the community lounge – from guest speakers and exercise classes, to Happy Hour and themed events.  


Activities Programme

The Village Manager is available Monday to Friday and offers a varied and interesting programme that all village residents are encouraged to join. A ‘Good Morning’ programme is arranged every Thursday in the apartments’ atrium; residents enjoy a social get-together with refreshments, and often includes  guest speakers and community involvement. A Weekly exercise class is held under the guidance of an instructor organised through Sport Waikato. On Friday afternoons we have a 'Happy Hour' in the atrium which is open to all Village Residents to attend.


Carefree Independence

Live life the way you want to, with the freedom to do the things you love. We’ll take care of all the maintenance - building repairs, exterior cleaning and the gardening too. Knowing the weekly fee is fixed for life means you can budget and have financial surety for the future. If you ever need assistance in an emergency, call bells in your apartment will connect you to trained staff 24 hours a day.


A Continuum of Care

If your needs change, Awatere has new luxury Care Suites for Rest Home and Hospital care onsite with preferential entry for Awatere residents. You can be sure you’re in good hands. Oceania has won the Supreme Care Award from the NZ Aged Care Association 3 years in a row.



Minimum age of entry  for residents is 70 years.
