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. If you’re looking at a range of Christchurch retirement villages, St Albans should be on your shortlist. Our lovely modern Living Well apartments, serviced apartments, studios, and rest home rooms are warm and bright. You will be looked after by our attentive staff who treat everyone with respect and kindness. Our community values individuality and freedom of choice. This means you get to call the shots about how your day unfolds, such as when to eat breakfast and what activities to do.
A modern retirement community close to the exciting centre of Christchurch
One of the best things about living at St Albans is the proximity to shops, restaurants, parks, galleries, and historic places in central Christchurch. When heading out with family and friends there are always 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 superior level of comfort you’ll experience at St Albans. Our serviced apartments for seniors 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.
Arvida. Living a life with soul.
Living Well apartments77-80 sqm plus outdoor area
Living Well apartments are a new Arvida concept for reimagined retirement village living. These new 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 our 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 area. 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 care in your serviced apartment in the future, should you need it.
Being a part of our village community is easy, because 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 now feels brand new. We have both premium and standard fully-furnished rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. Our rest home 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 local experiences close by. Residents in the Totara Living Well apartments have free use of three electric vehicles for heading out and about.
