The Oaks Retirement Village


Our Village Living Offering

The Oaks is an attractive, friendly retirement community with magnificent gardens and a convenient location. The Oaks offers independent living in comfortable and spacious villas.


Onsite there is a resthome and age-related hospital. We also offer residential care suites for residents who require resthome or hospital level care with a larger living space than a standard room.


Additional Services

Villa residents pay a weekly outgoing charge, which is fixed for their term in the unit. This fee includes garden and lawn care, rates, building insurance, repairs and maintenance.


Activities Programme

The Oaks has a very comprehensive activities programme, including exercise classes, shopping trips, Church services, bowls, housie, happy hour, outings to places of interest, movies in the main lounge, visiting speakers and entertainers. There is something to suit everyone.


What’s Near By

The Oaks is situated close to a number of good shopping centres, including the Bush Inn Centre, Westfield Riccarton, Avonhead Shopping Centre and the Hornby Hub. Over the road from the facility there is a library and a café and we are within walking distance of churches and parks.


Dwelling Features

Smoke alarms and emergency call buttons are in all units. The villas all have two bedrooms and the majority have internal access garages. They are insulated and double glazed with heat pumps. They also have full kitchens with ovens, hobs, range hood and dish drawers or dish washing machines.


Village Features

There is a bus stop right outside the facility and electric gates for residents’ security. The main lounge in the facility is the hub for a number of activities. A magnificent oak tree in the grounds gives the facility its name. The gardens feature flower beds, manicured lawns and mature trees that are under the care of Head Gardener, Alan Rickerby and have won various awards, such as the 2015 and 2016 Christchurch Street and Garden Awards for the Non-Residential category. Garden seats are set throughout the complex and there are sheltered courtyards to sit in and enjoy the sun.
