Care Home
  • Bayswater village in Mount Maunganui is part retirement village, part tropical resort and part seaside home. Located just a block from the ocean, Bayswater offers residents the conveniences and security of village life, with the beauty of the beach just a short stroll away.

    Set on 21 acres of spectacular grounds, Bayswater's inviting colour schemes and stately palm trees tell residents they’re home. Views of the Mount, the Kaimais and the sea from many of our Palms apartments add to the holiday vibe. Residents enjoy peace of mind living in a gated community while having the option of a vibrant social life. Neighbours get to know each other and staff by name. 

    Amenities include a café and restaurant, bar, indoor heated swimming pool, billiards, bowling green, gym, hairdressing salon, putting green, spa pool and theatre stage. We offer cleaning services and take care of all external maintenance, so residents have time to enjoy activities that mean most to them. Bayswater offers a range of options, from independent living, with 24-hour help just a button-push away, to serviced apartments with regular cleaning, meals and personal care services.   In addition, the largest shopping centre in Tauranga, Bayfair, is across the street. Leave your car behind, as a regular bus service puts residents within easy reach of any destination in greater Tauranga. To read more about our serviced apartments, click here.   

    Bayswater village is part of Metlifecare, one of the largest retirement village operators in New Zealand. All Metlifecare villages offer residents added assurances including fixed village fees, no hidden costs, no capital loss and continuum of care with priority access to any Metlifecare Care Facility.

    What are the residents rights if the village got into financial difficulty? ×
    Residents are protected through a first ranking mortgage with the Village's Statutory Supervisor . They hold first ranking mortgage over the village land in order to ensure priority and security for the rights of all residents. The statutory supervisor also ensures the operator of the village acts in accordance with the Disclosure Statements and the village is run in a financially responsible manner.
    What happens if there is a delay in sale? ×
    Your village fee will cease as soon as Metlifecare is provided with vacant possession of your unit. If it takes longer than nine months to re-license, we will pay you interest on the outstanding capital. Plus you can apply for an early repayment of up to $20,000 of the capital sum when your unit is vacated.
