Enliven’s Kowhainui Village offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity in Whanganui’s premier suburb of Otamatea. From the friendly community spirit, right through to the perfect location, purpose built villas and townhouses and friendly staff, Kowhainui Village by Enliven has it all.
This popular village has been carefully laid out across two neighbouring sites. The boutique Kowhainui Drive villas are set in beautiful park-like surroundings, while Edith Collier Drive’s modern townhouses are set on a sweeping cul-de- sac amongst abundant rose gardens. Both sites share the vibrant Kowhainui lifestyle that residents love.
Kowhainui Village is located in Otamatea, outside the hustle and bustle of town for peace and quiet, it is only a 15 minute walk from St John’s Hill Shopping Centre and just a few minutes drive from the CBD.
Enliven’s Kowhainui Village provides independent living, but with the security of knowing our friendly team is never far away if you need them. As a resident of Enliven’s Kowhainui Village you are, of course, free to do whatever you like, when you like. But you can be confident that our friendly team is on hand to offer all the support and security you need.
At Enliven, we believe retirement is not about slowing down (unless you want to!); it’s about having the time to do the things you enjoy most. Enliven’s Kowhainui Village has been designed to let you make the most of your retirement years.

Neighbouring Kowhainui Home provides rest home care, health recovery and short-term respite, so village residents can rest assured that help is close-by if needed. Plus, the home provides specialist hospital level care making it a perfect option for couples who need different levels of support, but want to remain close-by.
