The Bayview Village
Formerly Melrose Retirement Village
In an enviable position overlooking the beautiful harbour and the Mount, The Bayview is set on more than 15 acres of park-like grounds. Just minutes from the city, it’s easy to balance an active social life and your leisure time. Visitors are often surprised how spacious the village is, with lush gardens and room to breathe, you feel part of the cosy close-knit community whilst maintaining that important sense of privacy.
Our Village Offering
The Bayview offers the opportunity to retire in a comfortable villa in one of New Zealand’s most popular retirement locations, with a choice of dwellings to suit your individual needs and lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for a north-facing, hillside cottage with sea views, or an extra spacious, modern villa on the flat, we’ve got something for everyone at The Bayview.
Active Village Life
Many of our residents are active in the community enjoying social activities at local clubs and societies. Around the corner from the expressway, and with public transport outside the gate, it’s a breeze to get to the shopping centres at Brookfield and Bethlehem, or one of Tauranga’s famous beaches. If you don’t feel like venturing very far, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep in the village community centre – from guest speakers and indoor bowls, to Happy Hour and themed events.
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. Don’t feel like cooking? Order a meal from our onsite chef and choose to get it delivered right to your door or to join your neighbours for a social meal in the dining room. Knowing the weekly fee is fixed for life means you can budget and have financial surety for the future.
Continuum of Care
For assistance in an emergency, call bells in your villa will connect you to trained staff 24 hours a day. If your needs change, The Bayview has new luxury Care Suites for Rest Home and Hospital care onsite, or specialised Dementia care available across the road. You can be sure you’re in good hands.
