The thoughtful positioning of quality homes affording residents much valued privacy is top of the list of reasons why residents in Wanaka Retirement Village (WRV) love their new homes.
"It's important to have privacy when you live in a village and we have plenty of it," says Bev Chatwin who spent several months looking at retirement villages throughout the South Island before settling in WRV.
"I'm in the apartment block and just love it. It's very classy and the architect has thought of everything," she added.
Also in the eight-apartment two storey building is Doris Watts who says her new one-bedroom home is more spacious than she expected. "There's nothing boxy or motel-like about our homes and the quality of the finishing is quite superior to that I've seen elsewhere."
Village residents include three sisters and a sister-in-law
