Hutt Gables Retirement Village


Our Village Living Offering

Overlooking the Tararua Ranges and set amongst beautiful Gardens, Hutt Gables is a little 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.


At Hutt Gables you have the opportunity to retire in a comfortable and affordable villa. Whether you like to entertain, or simply enjoy your own space, you’ll love the relaxed feel and open-plan living at Hutt Gables. There is a choice of generous two-bedroom villas all with garaging, double wardrobes and plenty of storage. Positioned for the sun with a heatpump and insulation, you’ll be cosy all winter long. 


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. Hutt Gables is ideally located around the corner from the motorway, with easy access to public transport, which makes getting to shopping centres or visiting friends and family a breeze. There is a range of eateries, as well as the local pools and library, all within easy driving distance.


Activities Programme

Activities include sit-dancing, walking group, cards, housie and the mobile library visits weekly. There are darts, indoor bowls and a pool table. We have two regular outings and two shopping trips each month, plus regular activities in the community centre.


Or if you don’t feel like venturing very far, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep. Join the knitting group, get competitive with indoor bowls and housie, exercise your green thumbs with ‘Pots for Joy’ or get together with your neighbours for delicious morning teas 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. Knowing the weekly fee is fixed for life guaranteed means you can budget and have financial surety for the future.


A Continuum of Care

If your needs change Hutt Gables residents have preferential entry to Oceania’s rest home and hospital facilities at nearby Elderslea and Heretaunga, 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.


Minimum age of entry for residents is 70 years.
