Located on Ngataringa Road in Devonport, the brand-new William Sanders Retirement Village is nestled amongst peaceful surroundings with views of Mt Victoria/Takarunga, Rangitoto, Auckland city and the harbour bridge.
The village provides a lifestyle option to suit everyone. Including apartments, assisted living in serviced apartments, and the very best of resthome, hospital and dementia care.
The amenities include an all-weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gym, beauty and hairdressing salon, movie theatre, library, and even a cafe! There is so much for residents to enjoy, including village events and outings.
William Sanders 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 in a serviced apartment and a full 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.
Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.
Serviced apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.
Community is central to the lifestyle so we offer amenities that encourage that sense of togetherness, such as a café, dining room, bar, hair and beauty salon, and shop.
Retirement is a great time to sharpen your skills on the passions and pastimes that you love. Spend time in the movie theatre, workshop, recreation room, billiards room, and library.
Incorporate regular activity into your everyday routine or enjoy the camaraderie of a little game time. Amenities include a swimming pool, spa pool, gym, and bowling green.
Care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.
William Sanders care centre offers a full 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.

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