Melrose Retirement Village
Our Village Living Offering
Melrose was the first retirement facility to be built in Tauranga. It is located in an enviable position over-looking the beautiful harbour.
We have more than fifteen acres of attractive park-like grounds, within easy reach of the town centre and all of its great amenities. There is a regular bus service to take you there, with the bus stopping right outside the entrance.
We have a rest home, hospital and specialist dementia care – village residents get priority access. Well-prepared meals are available in our restaurant or delivered right to your door.
Activities staff provide a varied programme for residents. There is access to the community centre whenever you want. The centre includes a large lounge and meeting areas, kitchen facilities, Sky TV, a fully equipped gym designed with seniors in mind, pool table and darts. A fantastic and well-used BBQ area over-looking the harbour is always popular. Croquet is available and we have three well-stocked library areas, plus easy access to the City Library.
Church services from different denominations are held on a weekly basis.
What’s Near By
Melrose has easy access to the town centre and our famous beaches. Tauranga and Mount Maunganui have a wide range of world-class facilities, including shopping centres, restaurants and cafes, fantastic hot pools and a wide range of sports and cultural offerings.
A regular and frequent bus service stops outside Melrose and is free for gold cardholders.
Visiting family and friends can stay with the residents, or at one of the many local motels close by.
We have a wide range of homes, which vary in size, location and price. Villas have heat pumps, which can also be used for cooling in the summer. All properties have smoke alarms that we maintain – the number depending on the size of the property.
All of our Villas have cooking facilities. In addition residents are welcome to make use of our restaurant facilities, which provide home cooked meals at a very reasonable price. Every home has its own garden, which is maintained by our gardening team. Of course, residents are welcome to look after their own gardens. We have many keen gardeners who grow a range of flowers and vegetables.
The well-maintained and extensive grounds overlook the harbour and Mount Maunganui. There are a number of walks within the grounds as well as easy access to the estuary.
Many activities are catered for both in the community centre and in the main facility. All of these activities are also available to our village residents at no extra charge. The many visiting musicians and choirs are particularly popular.
All of our homes and buildings are wheelchair accessible. Residents with mobility scooters can keep them in their garage or carport.
We have two Pétanque courts and two indoor bowls areas. Bowls is particularly popular, with several teams playing. New players at whatever level are always welcome. The bowling areas are raised which means that even wheelchair bound residents can play. We have a large outdoor croquet area on one of our extensive lawns.
Because we have large grounds, there is plenty of space for visitor parking.
Residents elect their own committee to organise a wide variety of activities.
