  • Independent living Living Well apartments

Settle in and enjoy spectacular views of the Canterbury Plains, Southern Alps and Pacific Ocean – the trifecta of panoramas.

With an envious position on the lower Cashmere Hills, Rhodes on Cashmere is a boutique Arvida Living Well Community offering private, secure retirement living. Residents love the peaceful location, stunning views over Christchurch and on-site café. We are close to the city, the Purau Reserve walking tracks and our on-site gym, exercise classes and raised vege gardens are popular ways to stay social and active. Apartment living at Rhodes on Cashmere offers peace of mind knowing help is on hand 24/7 and our small community looks out for each other. With a number of new one and two-bedroom apartments we currently have a choice of modern homes available at a range of prices. Our on-site social life is supported by Rhodes Café, a programme of guest speakers, regular exercise classes, community events and outings. Our shared vege gardens, social spaces, library, gym, workshop and hair salon are wonderful facilities that support resident hobbies and interests. A care centre with care suites for those who require rest home and hospital-level care is currently under construction and will ensure we can provide a continuum of care on site.

Original Rhodes apartments

A luxurious apartment home that you’ll love to show off to friends and family 

Our spacious and well-appointed apartments are built on the hillside site of the historic Rhodes Convalescent Hospital. There are a range of floorplans, including the very-latest Living Well apartments. The fixed for life weekly fee includes a daily buffet breakfast and half hour weekly house clean and covers building and garden maintenance, insurances and community services, so there will be more time for all the things you want to achieve in the years ahead.

Around the neighbourhood there are clubs for bowls, tennis and croquet. Supermarkets and malls are nearby, and the exciting new restaurants and retail precincts of central Christchurch are just 12 minutes away. When younger members of the family come to stay, Victoria Park is 10 minutes up the hill.

Arvida. Living a life with soul.
