Elmwood Retirement Village


Our Village Offering

Overlooking the Bombay Hills, and opposite the Botanical Gardens, Elmwood is a vibrant Village with a big heart. Visitors are often surprised how spacious the village is, with lush gardens and room to breathe, you feel part of the community whilst maintaining that important sense of privacy.


Elmwood offers the rare opportunity to retire in a comfortable and affordable villa in Auckland. Whether you like to entertain, or simply enjoy your own space, you’ll love the relaxed feel and open-plan living at Elmwood. From recently built two bedroom villas, to cosy one bed cottages, there is a choice to suit all budgets and lifestyles. 


Active Village Life

Many of our residents are active in the local community – enjoying social activities at clubs and societies like they’ve always done. Elmwood is ideally located just off the Southern motorway with easy access to public transport, which makes getting to shopping centres or visiting friends and family a breeze. Or if you don’t feel like venturing very far, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep. Give Tai Chi a go, cross the road to explore the Botanic Gardens, or join your neighbours for delicious morning teas and Sunday roasts in the community centre. 


Carefree Independence

Live life the way you want to, with the freedom to do the things you love - but with someone else looking after the maintenance. Sit back and relax while we look after building repairs, exterior cleaning and the lawns too. Don’t feel like cooking? Order a delicious meal prepared at our onsite kitchen. If you ever need assistance in an emergency, call bells in your villa will connect you to trained staff 24 hours a day.


A Continuum of Care

If your needs change, Elmwood has a Rest Home and Hospital facility onsite with a choice of standard rooms or spacious Care Suites. 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.
