Retirement living in the heart of Remuera

It’s no coincidence that our Edmund Hillary Village is named in honour of one of New Zealand’s most pioneering sons. As Ryman’s flagship village, it’s grand in appearance and set in prestigious Remuera amidst 25 acres of beautiful gardens. However, like our namesake, it also has a humble and caring side, because it’s a place where community and connection thrive.

Residents often tell us how proud they are to live at the village, whether they’ve lived in the surrounding suburbs all their lives or have moved there to retire. It’s evident in the enthusiasm residents bring to the many events and activities held at the village. They love the lifestyle because the village provides them with a supportive and caring place to call home, while offering the gateway to everything Remuera has to offer. It’s certainly a place where you can live life to the full.

The freedom to live the way you want
Edmund Hillary Village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. From independent townhouses and apartments, and the extra support of a serviced apartment, to resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’.

Enjoy a little certainty
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.
