At Althorp Village, you will enjoy superb accommodation and, a wide range of facilities.

Althorp Village is not just another retirement village. It's been designed to provide a unique blend of high quality accommodation and resort-style facilities . Set amidst park-like surroundings and within easy reach of Tauranga, it has 210 residences plus a motel for family and friends. Our Lodge offers many amenities and activities for the active and not so active in very attractive surroundings.

No matter what sort of accommodation you're looking for Althorp Village has something to suit you. We offer a superb choice of villas, duplexes, town houses, apartments and serviced apartments. Each has been architecturally designed and arranged with your comfort, convenience and security in mind. We have also taken care to ensure that all village homes enjoy plenty of sun, privacy and attractive views and surroundings.

Your peace of mind is assured

As a resident of Althorp Village, your well being is very important to us. We provide 24-hour security by way of night security patrols. All homes are monitored by St John should you have an emergency.  We consider it very important that your dignity and independence is respected at all times and that you enjoy the same security of tenure you would expect in your own home.

Family-owned, professionally operated

Unlike many retirement villages, Althorp Village is privately owned. This makes for a more personal and friendly approach to running the village. However, residents also have the reassurance of knowing that the village meets all government regulations and there are Professional Managers and a Statutory Supervisor to oversee residents rights.

Peaceful, unspoiled environment

Located with a small shopping centre next door offering a doctor, dentist, chemist, restaurants and a superette.  Within a few kilometers is bustling Tauranga.  The golf course, racetrack and Greerton Village are nearby.  Althorp is a sunny oasis of peace and tranquility. Laid out over approximately 10 hectares, the design emphasis is blending accommodation and amenities harmoniously with open space, lawn and trees. The result is a place where people can enjoy the most modern amenities and the best of nature.
