Community Living in the Heart of Whakatane

Welcome to Our Village

Located in the heart of Whakatane, Golden Pond Lifecare is a Registered Retirement Village that incorporates 18 Home Units and 11 Studios. 

The Home Units which are owned by their occupiers, provide an environment that allows owners to be independent with the knowledge that services and care are available when required. Home Care help available to you in the community is applicable and if you currently use it, it is transferable. Our fees are the most competitive package there is in our market place. Our Lifecare Fee is capped and capital gain accrues to the owner.  

The Village is built around Golden Pond Private Hospital which enjoys an excellent reputation. It provides a full service to the Studios and support service to the Home Units.


Situated 10 minutes walk from the town centre, all easy flat walking.
