Waitara Village consists of seven, two bedroom villas each with internal access garaging. Free from the hassle of lawns and other maintenance, residents can relax and make the most of their retirement. Waitara river and the main township are also nearby, with local shops and amenities for everyday needs.
Waitara Masonic Village is part of the Masonic Villages Trust, which has several villages and care facilities in the southern North Island, including six villages in Taranaki.
Like all of the Trust’s villages, Waitara is a quality retirement community with a culture that reflects the wishes of the residents. Because the Trust's villages are smaller than those provided by commercial operators, residents maintain their individuality, while also enjoying the friendly village atmosphere. Because the Trust is a non-profit organisation with a charitable ethic, any financial surpluses are reinvested in facilities and services that benefit residents.
