Located just west of Hagley Park, Mayfair is an Arvida Living Well Community with a reputation for friendliness and comfort in a beautiful garden setting.
There’s a full range of retirement accommodation options here, from independent living in two-bedroom villas and semi-independent living in serviced apartments and studios, right through to rest home and hospital care. Life at Mayfair can be as relaxing or as busy as you want. There’s a daily activities programme, regular community events, live entertainment and the option of outings in the community’s van. When the weather’s lovely, and it often is, residents make the most of outdoor areas for recreation and socialising. There’s even a gardening group you can join.
One of Canterbury’s most loved retirement communities welcomes you with open arms
When you visit Mayfair for the first time, you’ll notice the aroma of delicious food in the air. Our community has its own commercial kitchen, staffed by passionate cooks who really know what they’re doing. We also have a hairdresser, podiatrist, physiotherapist and other services to help you feel your best.
Mayfair is handy to the Botanic Gardens, Hagley Park and Ilam Gardens, so there’s always somewhere beautiful to go when friends or family are visiting. Westfield Riccarton and Bush Inn Centre are a 15-minute walk or five-minute drive away, for shopping and catching up with friends at a café and we have a bus stop a short stroll away.

Daily activities ensure plenty of good times with new and old friends alike.
Serviced apartmentsOne bedroom and studio
Mayfair’s one-bedroom serviced apartments and studios are a great option if you need some care and support to live independently. The support you receive can even include rest home-level care.
All serviced apartments are bright, cosy spaces with a kitchenette, open-plan living areas and a private patio. Bedrooms have a built-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.
Mayfair’s 11 two-bedroom villas are modern and purpose built, providing an easy-care, low maintenance option if you want to live independently, but like the security of a village. Friendly companionship and organised activities are always available; however you can also maintain your privacy. All villas have an internal-access garage, heat pump, dishwasher and drapes.
Care centre rooms
Bright, sunny rooms look out into a gorgeous garden courtyard that’s full of blooms any gardener would envy. With just 63 care rooms in total, our cosy community is warm and friendly. Residents live in a household group, so they can enjoy closer relationships with staff and each other.
