Type of accommodation

We offer affordable, quality living for 12 older people who want to be as self-reliant as possible while enjoying the peace of mind of not worrying about maintaining their own home or feeling isolated.

Residents have the companionship and security of others, and our housekeeper provides varied and nutritious meals and helps look after the house.


We make no capital charge

Anyone over 65 years of age with modest assets and able to look after their personal needs independently may be considered for residency.

Even if a person has limited assets, if the criteria for the single living alone pension rate or Accommodation Allowance are met they may also be considered.

If home help is needed it may be available through the local District Health Board.

About this property

The two storey house is very accessible and suitable for wheelchair and walking frame users with lift access to the upper floor. It was specifically designed and built for us and opened in 2006.

Each resident has their own studio room with full ensuite bathroom for their exclusive use. Rooms are unfurnished, so residents can bring their own furniture and items, making it their own home.

The 7 rooms on the ground floor have a small patio, and the 4 rooms on the upper floor have views from their balconies over the neighbourhood and towards Mt Albert.

Residents share the dining and lounge areas and kitchen and laundry, and can be involved with our gardens if they wish. There is also a shed for mobility scooters and limited on-site car parking.

All rooms and communal areas have underfloor and other heating and the building has modern fire safety and security systems throughout.

Abbeyfield house management

The house is managed by Abbeyfield Auckland Inc, a registered NZ charity. Residents also participate in managing the house through regular discussions and as members of the House Committee.

Our dedicated and experienced volunteers help us provide quality rental accommodation at an affordable cost. We have also received significant support from Auckland Council, Housing New Zealand, ASB Community Trust, Nolan Charitable Trust, Western Springs Rotary, and many others including our volunteers and past and present residents.

Further financial or other assistance to help us build on what we have achieved is always very welcome.  See our contact details below.
