- You’ll find Tauranga’s finest retirement address at The Avenues on the corner of Tenth Avenue and Devonport Road. This sophisticated apartment complex offers the tranquility and beauty of village life just a stone’s throw from city attractions like cafes, clubs and shops. Located in the heart of downtown, The Avenues offers impressively-appointed apartments and stunning gardens along with the friendly community spirit of our residents. Neighbours get to know each other while enjoying the art gallery, cooking club, heated indoor swimming pool, indoor bowls, library, petanque court, spa pool, theatrette and garden courtyard.
We’re often told our apartments are more like a five-star hotel than a retirement village. One, two or three-bedroom apartments include designer kitchens and deck areas overlooking manicured grounds. Some apartments even present spectacular views over Memorial Park to the Tauranga harbour.
The Avenues provides activities if you want to keep busy, a wellness centre if you want to keep fit and private apartments if you want to take it easy. 24-hour support is available at a button-push if you ever need it. We can arrange services including cleaning, laundry, meals, personal care, professional nursing and wellness checks. Rest home level care is even available at the apartments. Coming soon to the village is a 30-bed Care Home with an intergrated homestead design.
The Avenues 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.

Can residents make alterations to their property? ×Residents are welcome to redecorate their unit with discretion of the village manager. Any major alterations must be discussed and approved by the village manager.
What do resident fees cover? ×This is a consolidated fee that captures costs such as council rates, water rates, building insurance, the upkeep of community facilities, gardening services, salaries and wages of the staff and village operations.
How long is the cooling off period once the contract is signed? ×As per the Retirement Village 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? ×Any family members or friends are able to stay for a combined total of 90 days per year. Longer stays require the agreement of the Village Manager.
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? ×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.
