Why choose Summerset


What makes Summerset different

Summerset Retirement Villages was founded on a deep respect for our residents, putting them at the heart of everything we do. With a range of homes and activities there’s something for everyone and if your needs change you can be reassured we offer support and care onsite. When you move to a Summerset village, you’re not just moving house – you’re joining a community. And we think that’s pretty special.


We are proud to have been operating retirement villages and aged care homes in New Zealand since 1997 with over 8,000 residents calling Summerset home. For your security and peace of mind there is a call bell system throughout all homes, village CCTV and a fully fenced village perimeter with security gates locked at night. Enjoy financial surety with no hidden charges and our Summerset Sure guarantee means you'll have 90 days to be sure your new home is right for you, and if not — we'll give you your money back (some conditions apply). We are proud signatories of the Retirement Living Code of Conduct.


With our continuum of care you can rest assured that if your needs change, our dedicated and professional staff offer a range of care and living options. Services can be provided in your villa or serviced apartment through to personalised care in care suites in our modern care home. You can be reassured that residents have priority for transfer (subject to availability and entry criteria).


At Summerset the choices are all yours to do as much or as little as you choose. From the range of homes to the extensive activities and events on offer. Your pets are welcome after a quick check with the village manager, and friends and family are welcome for short stays. We maintain your home so you are free to spend more time doing what you love.


Summerset villages are retirement communities where you can make new friends and socialise with like-minded people, while also welcoming family and friends. Whether it is enjoying a coffee in the café, a drink at happy hour in the bar and lounge or tinkering in the resident workshop there is always a strong sense of community.
