Our Village Offering

The Bellevue offers a choice of one, one-bedroom with a flexible second room, two or two-bedroom with a flexible third room apartments, which are due for completion in February 2021. Whether you like to entertain, or simply enjoy your own space, you’ll love the flexibility and open plan design at The Bellevue. These brand new, proficiently designed apartments are spacious and well-considered, with quality fixtures and fittings, and flawless attention to detail. Relish the peace and comfort all year round with mod-cons including double glazing, a heat pump and extra soundproofing. Many apartments have an enclosable balcony with sliding glass doors for a sheltered outdoor space to enjoy in any season.


Active Village Life

Our proximity to Papanui's hub makes it easy for you to be a part of the community, so you can enjoy social activities as you’ve always done. If you don’t feel like venturing very far, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep. Wander down to Main Street, a space complete with indoor and outdoor lounge and dining areas, and a café. If it’s quiet time you crave, get pampered in the beauty salon or keep fit and head upstairs to the gym. And, there’s even more to look forward to. Stage 2 includes a cinema for you to relish the big screen experience, as well as an additional lounge space and outdoor seating area for socialising with neighbours.


Carefree Independence

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? Homemade meals, fresh baking and barista made coffee are all available in Main Street. Knowing the weekly fee is fixed for life guaranteed means you can budget and have financial surety for the future.


A Continuum of Care

For assistance in an emergency, call bells in your apartment will connect you to trained staff 24 hours a day. If your needs change, The Bellevue has spacious, luxury Care Suites for both Rest Home and Hospital care. 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.
