It hasn’t taken long for a happy, supportive community spirit to infuse Wanaka Retirement Village.
Whether a resident wants to sit quietly in the sun completing a crossword, join Tai Chi in the Village Common Room, potter in the garden, or meet a neighbour in the sheltered courtyard for a chat, they are comfortable in knowing they can do whatever they want whenever they want.
Without exception, the 17 residents recommend the village as the perfect place to live, and look forward to the last four homes being occupied so they can spread the community spirit around even further.
There are just two brand new homes remaining to be sold under the Occupational Right Agreement (ORA) process: both well-positioned Villas priced at $399,000 with a $109.48 weekly fee. This fee covers gardening, building maintenance, rates, building insurance and the cost of routine services provided by the Statutory Supervisor.
All these very spacious homes have two bedrooms, are positioned for the sun, and the quality fixtures and fittings are those you usually see in much more expensive homes.
Villas 11 and 12 are in a quiet section of the Village, enjoying all-day sun with views up to the nearby ranges. They are a mirror-image of each other so outside entertainment areas offer a good deal of privacy.
One apartment, number 26, is also for sale, at $300,000.
The position of the Village is a real bonus to residents because it’s only a short flat walk to the shops or down to the lake. And alongside is Elmslie House Home & Hospital. Some services such as meals and cleaning can be arranged on a payment basis from this popular home if you prefer.
