Devonport Retirement Village is located in Auckland’s popular North Shore. Our enviable position on King Edward Parade means it’s an easy walk across the road to the waterfront. The village is close to a number of beauty spots, including Mount Victoria Reserve and the Devonport Domain, while local shops are just a few minutes drive away.
Residents at Devonport Retirement Village enjoy independent living in our freestanding villas. Each of our one and two bedroom villas has its own carport, deck and garden area. Our residences are well designed for easy retirement living, and meals are available on request.
Our community house is the hub of social life at the village, with its lounge, dining room and book exchange. We organise occasional residents’ dinners and movie nights, as well as monthly outings, while the village van runs shopping trips into town once a week. Residents are also in the ideal spot to take advantage of local sporting facilities, such Bowling Club and the Waitemata Golf Club.
Enjoy an active retirement on the Auckland waterfront. For more information about Devonport Retirement Village, please make an enquiry.

Can residents make alterations to their property? ×Alterations for reason such as a disability may be arranged with management's approval. The resident will be required to cover all costs associated with the alteration. When the resident leaves the village, they may be required to revert the unit to its original state (at the resident’s cost) unless the new resident wishes to buy the property with the alterations in place.
What do resident fees cover? ×The resident fee covers the day-to-day operation of the village such as lawns & maintenance, rubbish collection, rates, insurance etc.
How long is the cooling off period once the contract is signed? ×As per the Retirement Villages Act, the cooling off period after an Occupation Right Agreement has been signed is 15 working days.
When leaving the village, what is the process for units being sold? ×Units are advertised at market value. Residents are welcome to introduce a prospective resident as long as they meet the normal entry criteria of the village.
Can residents have friends & family to stay? ×Yes, residents are welcome to have friends and family stay for a maximum of 3 weeks. Longer stays require prior management approval.
What does the entry fee cover? ×The entry cost gives the resident the right to live in the unit for their lifetime or as long as they choose. When the resident leaves the village they will receive the cost paid minus the deferred management fee and any other charges due.
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? ×If the property has not been sold within 3 months the village is required to let the resident (or enduring power of attorney) know in writing and provide monthly reports until it is sold. These reports will contain what steps the village is taking to market the property and the progress being made. If the property has not been sold after 6 months then the village (at its expense) must obtain a written valuation by an independent registered valuer. The resident is welcome to have their own valuation completed (at their cost) with a registered valuer. The village is then required to market the property after consideration of the second valuation at a suitable price.
