Our brand new James Wattie Retirement Village in Havelock North is conveniently located at 122 Te Aute Road with superb views of Te Mata Peak. It is a short drive to The Village offering retail shopping, a supermarket, specialty shops, and a variety of dining options. Residents can enjoy the convenience of transport options near by.
The village will provide a lifestyle option to suit everyone; including townhouse and apartment living, assisted living in a serviced apartment and the very best of resthome, hospital and dementia care.
The amenities will include an all-weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, gym, beauty and hairdressing salon, movie theatre, library, and even a café.
There will always be something to do at the village, with activities and events to suit everyone – concerts, shopping trips, exercise classes and much more!
We created this animated tour so you can have a sneak peek at our beautiful village and the living options available while the village is still under construction. If you'd like to visit a Ryman village that is already open, contact us to arrange a tour.
James Wattie Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments and townhouses 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 will 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 or townhouse*, 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 will 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. You will be able to spend time enjoying the movie theatre, workshop, craft room, billiards room, and library.
Incorporate regular activity into your everyday routine or enjoy the camaraderie of a little game time. Amenities will 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.
The James Wattie care centre will offer 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. 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.
