Auckland, Hauraki Gulf Islands, Waiheke Island
- Waiheke Retirement Village by LifeCare Residences is nestled right at the water’s edge of Waiheke Island’s Anzac Bay – making it one of the most private retirement options in Auckland. The Village enjoys the relaxed lifestyle the island is known for, yet is only 600 metres away from the township of Ostend, providing easy access to shopping, medical services and the local RSA. Plus it’s just a 35-minute trip to downtown Auckland, via one of the many daily ferry sailings to and from the island.
The attractive low-rise villas at Waiheke Retirement Village offer independent living in a like-minded community. Our purpose-designed one and two bedroom homes have been positioned for maximum views and sun, as well as optimal privacy. Set within beautifully landscaped grounds, many of our villas feature separate studies and conservatories, and all are linked to our 24-hour emergency call system.
Residents enjoy access to first class facilities, including an indoor heated swimming pool, spa pool, workshop and library. Billiards and Petanque are always popular, as are our organised activities and regular outings. At Waiheke Retirement Village, you can do as much or as little as you like.
Waiheke Retirement Village offers an independent lifestyle in a supportive, tranquil setting.

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).
What do resident fees cover? ×The resident fee covers the day-to-day operation of the village such as rates, insurance, maintenance of communal areas 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? ×Following termination of your Occupation Right Agreement and the vacation of your unit, we will market your unit for sale. You are entitled to introduce a prospective new resident who is willing to pay the market value of your unit and who meets 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 in total of 3 months per annum. Longer stays require 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 relicensed 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 relicensed 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 according to the agreed valuation. If your unit has not been relicensed within nine months you may appoint a Real Estate Agent to market the unit jointly with us. You will be liable for all marketing and other cost incurred by your agent.
