Green Gables Retirement Village


Our Village Living Offering

Our village is extremely popular due to its wonderfully central location - just a few minutes from the city centre shops and facilities. In 2017, Green Gables will be undergoing an exciting redevelopment which will offer an addition of 27 new apartments for independent living, and 61 luxury Care Suites.

Activities Programme

There are many activities on offer including indoor bowls, concerts, special occasion dinners, garden parties, twice-weekly yoga sessions and monthly outings.


What’s Near By

We are the most centrally located village in Nelson and after ten minutes strolling along the beautiful river beside Green Gables, you are in the city centre, with its vibrant shops and cafes. Supermarkets are within an easy walk, as is an indoor heated pool. Across the road are the beautiful Queens Gardens with the popular Suter Art Gallery, café and movie theatre.


Dwelling Features

Prospective residents love the open plan nature of our large villas, which are flooded with light. Each dwelling has direct access to its own garden, making for a lovely outlook. Villas are open plan with a large lounge, modern kitchen, loads of storage space, quiet garages, very generous bathrooms and spacious bedrooms.

Green Gables Retirement Village

  • "I wish I had moved to the village much sooner than I did because the companionship is here when needed. The activity program has grown from strength to strength over the last two years. The location is excellent and the village has property to suit everyone's budget." - Bessie Salmons, Oceania Resident

  • "I really welcomed the newsletters and the meetings with the Registered Nurse to set Mum’s care plan in place." - Daughter of Oceania resident

  • "The friendly environment is very comforting. I value my own space, which I have at the village, but there is also always a resident to have a cuppa and a chat with when needed." - Elizabeth Head, Oceania Resident

  • "The advantage of having rest home and hospital care (on site) played a huge part in our buying." - Ley Quennell, Oceania resident

  • "I am surrounded by lovely gardens and friends and neighbours. It is a great comfort, you never need to feel alone and I know I only have to press a bell if I need help." - Mary Harris Oceania Resident

  • "On the first day several residents popped in with muffins or small bunches of flowers to make sure Mum felt welcome. It was not long before she knew someone who knew someone and indeed knew some of the residents directly. It was a big move for Mum and she has settled really well thanks to the team." - Son of Oceania resident

  • "To me, the security and peace of mind are very comforting. Also, my husband lives in the hospital so I can spend as much time as I want with him. The newly refurbished community centre is becoming the hub of the village." - Val Payne, Oceania Resident
