As an Arvida Living Well community, St Albans focuses on helping every resident to live their best life.
That means ensuring each day includes activities, interactions and experiences that nurture the mind, body, heart and soul. Harnessing the spirit of partnership, staff and residents at St Albans collaborate harmoniously to create a caring, inclusive community. Our lovely modern Living Well apartments, serviced apartments, studios and rest home rooms are warm and bright. And you’ll be looked after by attentive staff who always treat you with respect and kindness. You get to call the shots about how your day unfolds, such as when to eat breakfast and what activities to do. Our community values individuality and freedom of choice.
A modern retirement community close to the exciting centre of Christchurch
One of the best things about living at St Albans is its proximity to shops, restaurants, parks, galleries and historic places in central Christchurch. So when heading out with family and friends there are plenty of places to go. Hagley Park, the Botanic Gardens and all the fabulous new eateries on Oxford Terrace are just minutes away.
Special mention must be made of the level of comfort you’ll experience at St Albans. Our serviced apartments have under-floor heating and double glazing, so winter stays on the outside. When the sun is shining, you can use your private balcony for fresh air and garden views.
Our St Albans’ manager Symone Bruhns enjoys a close connection with our residents. She has immense pride in St Albans and loves showing prospective residents around the community.
Arvida. Living a life with soul.

Living Well apartments77-80sqm plus outdoor area
Living Well apartments are a new Arvida concept for retirement living. Opened early 2020, these two-bedroom apartments enhance your independent lifestyle with the benefits of living in a supportive environment. The weekly fee includes three meals a week (lunch or dinner), a half-hour weekly house clean and use of the electric vehicles. All apartments have two bedrooms (one with a walk-in wardrobe), an ensuite bathroom, extra toilet, full kitchen and lovely open-plan living. Each apartment has a private patio or balcony and all appliances are included.
Serviced apartments & studios
The one-bedroom serviced apartments and studios at St Albans are great for people who need a little more support and care on a daily basis, such as help with meals and housekeeping. Choose from one of our care packages or tailor the options to suit you.
It’s easy to arrange full rest home level care in your serviced apartment in the future, should you need it.
Being a part of community life is easy with all of St Albans’ facilities and activities and the Caledonian Café under the same roof.
Care centre rooms
Our care centre was extensively renovated and strengthened after the earthquakes and feels brand new. We have both premium and standard fully-furnished rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. Our care rooms are in one central building, so the dining room, lounges, activities and facilities can all be accessed easily, without having to go outside.
Facilities & activities
St Albans is a smaller Arvida community with facilities and activities that focus on resident choices and wellbeing. Our central Christchurch location enables us to make the most of wonderful parks, galleries, shopping and experiences close by. Residents in the Totara Living Well apartments have free use of three electric vehicles for heading out and about.
