Olive Tree Retirement Village is an established and welcoming community where all residents are encouraged to be active, independent and engaged with life. The heart of our village offers companionship and a range of activities designed to enrich the lives of every individual within our community.
Independent living or rest home level care
The village is a modern and warm facility situated amongst gardens and mature trees, offering accommodation in the form of 95 Independent Villas, 50 Apartments, and a Rest Home with 24hr Nursing Care. Care options are available for all residents, whether living independently, semi independently or those requiring full 24/7 nursing care.
As an Arvida village, we take care to listen and help residents to continue to enjoy the things they love to do. We also offer a one-on-one personal coaching programme that actively empowers residents to take charge of their own health and wellbeing.
We’re happy to chat anytime about living options that fit your lifestyle, and we can help prepare a care programme for your individual needs, both now and in the future.
Life at Olive Tree
Olive Tree Retirement Village is a cosy settlement of cul-de-sac lanes, with trees forming the bones of landscaping embellished with the best and brightest seasonal flowers. Most villa residents keep up their own gardens, and competition is keen at the annual November rose show.
There is so much to do…
Activity programmes, big print books, billiards, bingo, bowls, bridge, canine friends, cards, church, classical music, concerts, craft, entertainers, exercises, games, gardens, happy hour, housie, hydrotherapy, jigsaw, library, mah jong, minibus for outings, pets, piano, swimming pool, pool table, religious services, sing-a-longs, spa pool… and lots of visitors!
Olive Tree Retirement Village units are available under the "Occupation Right Agreement" (ORA). Olive Tree is a registered retirement village and is a full member of both the Retirement Villages Association (RVA) and the New Zealand Aged Care Association (NZACA). If you are 65 or over and you need further care, a Government allowance may be available to assist with fees in your Serviced Apartment. Work and Income New Zealand will explain the assistance available and eligibility criteria.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How does the Village Fee work?
The village fee is a set monthly fee that covers all the outgoings, including council and water rates, building insurance
and external maintenance, upkeep of community facilities, staff costs, gardening and management of the village. The
village fee is increased annually by the same rate at which your superannuation is increased. This will ensure that you are
protected from any increases in operating costs that are in excess of inflation.
2. Is there help and security on hand?
We know that one of the main reasons our residents choose our retirement village is because of the enhanced security.
In addition to our 24 hour emergency call system, Olive Tree Retirement Village has regular security patrols. Contracted
security guards patrol the village on a regular basis.
3. What happens if my needs change?
At Olive Tree we offer a full continuum of care so you can access additional care services while remaining in your own
home. We can assist with meals, laundry, cleaning, access to doctors and nurses and 24 hour emergency assistance and
the ability to transfer to an apartment or resthome.
4. Can my friends and family stay with me?
Yes, of course. When you move into Olive Tree we want you to maintain your family and social ties, and even expand
them! This is your home, so you can have guests over to visit or stay whenever you like. It’s up to you.
