Spacious, well-appointed rooms…


We have 55 rest home rooms comprising 48 spacious ensuite studio rooms and 7 single ensuite rooms. Both the studio and single rooms are staffed 24 hours a day ensuring experienced care is always on hand.

Life is very full for residents with our two activity co-ordinators always planning the next exciting event – including the regular Happy Hour and all kinds of interesting outings in the Kauri Lodge van.

In our very spacious lounge, you can simply relax, watch TV or take part in the various social functions, activities and entertainment with specially appointed activity officers in attendance.

Our resident Chef ensures that you always sit down to appetising and nutritious meals. And regular ‘high teas’ and ‘themed’ dinner celebrations are our creative chef’s specialities. And in the mornings we can deliver breakfast in bed!

You can easily make an appointment to visit our hairdressing salon; or find a spot in the separate, sun-drenched library area to read, complete a jigsaw or just relax. A computer is available for your use, and so is computer training if you’re keen to improve your skills. This is often helpful when you receive emails from your family and friends.
