Retirement Villages Southland

Quiet and peaceful with rolling hills and rugged beaches, Southland is a great place to retire. You’ll find many of the larger retirement village operators in Southland, including Ryman Healthcare, Bupa, Ultimate Care Group> and Enliven as well as smaller, locally-owned villages.

Most retirement villages offer assisted living options as well as independent living.

Retirement village costs in Southland

The cost of living in a retirement village in Southland varies from village to village, and depends on its location, the facilities & services it offers and the homes it has available.

Usually within a retirement village, you will purchase a home under a contractual agreement called a licence to occupy. Rather than granting ownership, this licence gives you the contracted right to occupy the home for as long as you choose. For more information, take a look at our article on the costs of living in a retirement village.
