Enjoy the best of retirement living in one of our three friendly retirement villages in Waikato. Depending on the village that you call home, your living options include townhouses, apartments, or assisted-living apartments, all set among beautiful gardens. 

Many residents are keen gardeners and cultivate beautiful green spaces in their garden, patio or balcony. Others simply enjoy the village gardens, maintained to a high standard by our team of gardeners. Either way, a member of our friendly team can help with any heavy lifting.

Our villages feature amenities such as a heated indoor swimming pool, an all-weather bowling green, hair and beauty salons, a cinema, a village café, and more.

If your needs change over time, our state-of-the-art care centres offer rest home, hospital and dementia care. The care centres are located within our villages and Ryman residents have priority access. This means that couples can stay near one another even if one person needs to go into care.

Whichever village you choose, it offers you a lifestyle you can thrive in.


Linda Jones Retirement Village

Set along the Waikato River, Linda Jones Retirement Village offers a tranquil retirement lifestyle only 8kms from central Hamilton.

Enjoy meandering along the beautiful river walkways, try out your swing at the nearby golf courses, or take the dog for a walk in nearby Featherstone Park. And for your convenience, there are three major shopping areas located near the village including Te Awa at The Base.





Hilda Ross Retirement Village

Superbly located in the charming historic suburb of Hamilton East, Hilda Ross Retirement Village is close to the river and surrounded by parks and gardens.

With a supermarket just down the road, grocery shopping has never been easier. Hamilton Central is within walking or cycling distance, as are some of the city’s most desirable eateries and coffee shops. 

Best of all, the 54-hectare Hamilton Gardens are also nearby, featuring many diverse garden designs displaying the cultural meaning and context of gardens over thousands of years.





Patrick Hogan Retirement Village 

Ryman’s newest village in Waikato, Patrick Hogan Retirement Village, is located on the outskirts of the charming rural township of Cambridge, with many attractions nearby.

Located at the Velodrome, The Bikery Café is a four-minute drive away. This hidden gem offers fresh, delicious food and coffee. Another option is to walk or cycle to nearby Lake Te Koo Utu Reserve where you can stroll along the flat walking trail or enjoy a picnic with family and friends.
