Enjoy the rewards  

The Auckland property market has been a hot topic for some time now. If you’re an Auckland homeowner, it’s reassuring to watch your nest egg grow. However, increased property prices often go hand-in-hand with increased living costs. If you’re on a fixed income, this can create some uncertainty.

The lifestyle at Ryman’s Murray Halberg Village enables you to enjoy the rewards of the property value you’ve gained, while also fixing your weekly living costs to provide you and your family with certainty for the future.

When you live in a brand-new independent or assisted-living apartment at Murray Halberg Village, the cost of property rates, building insurance, exterior maintenance, gardening and window cleaning are all covered by the fixed weekly fee. That fee is fixed for as long as you live in your apartment* and our deferred management fee is capped at 20% – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

Certainty about your living costs is just the beginning. The lifestyle at Murray Halberg Village makes it easy to stay connected and active because you’re surrounded by a supportive community with beautiful amenities right there on your doorstep. And should you ever need it, there is a state-of-the-art care centre on site with 122 care rooms offering resthome, hospital, and specialist dementia care.

Located on Commodore Drive in Lynfield, Murray Halberg Village is well worth a visit.

Ryman Pioneers Freedom

Murray Halberg village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments are light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout.

If down the track you need more support, we offer assisted-living apartments and a range of care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference


Our pioneering approach to retirement living includes resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

These are just some of the ways we’re pioneering a new way of living for a new retirement generation.

*Some conditions apply.

Murray Halberg care centre offers a range of care options including resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the care we provide and the innovation behind it. Care is customised using our myRyman care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs. 


Personal attention, warmth and building trusting relationships are all crucial to the customised care we provide at our care centres.

Pioneering is part of who we are



That’s why each Ryman village is named after a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer. Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page to name a few. They lived with passion and purpose, they pushed further, they went beyond the ordinary. That’s exactly what we strive to do every day at Ryman. To pioneer a new way of living, for a new retirement generation.

Sir Murray Halberg (1933)

Olympic gold medalist, Sir Murray Halberg ONZ MBE is a true role model and champion – both on and off the running track. An extremely well-decorated athlete, he’s a notable national figure holding more than 50 years’ service to athletics.

The former middle-distance runner who won gold at the 1960 Olympic Games held in Rome also founded The Halberg Foundation in 1963. The organisation supports young New Zealanders with disabilities to be active in their communities and express themselves through sport and recreation.

An agile runner, he also took home gold in the 5000-metre and 3-mile events of the 1958 and 1962 Commonwealth Games held in Cardiff and Perth respectively.

His accolades include New Zealand Sportsman of the Year 1958, Member of the Order of the British Empire in 1961, and a Knight Bachelor in 1988. Halberg was appointed to the Order of New Zealand in June 2008. He was then awarded the prestigious Blake Medal the month after, one of only 4 recipients at the time.

Halberg’s altruistic character is admired by the nation and his dedication to enhancing the lives of physically disabled young people is witnessed through his founding of The Halberg Foundation.
