• Your Retirement

The Palms, a bespoke retirement village

Set on 25 acres of resort-style landscaping, our retirement village provides a lifestyle that lets you make the most of your retirement, without any of the usual hassles.

We believe your retirement years should be spent enjoying your life doing the things you want to do, within a close-knit community where everything you need is on your doorstep.

Privacy and security alongside a ready-made community when you need it

Within the security of a gated community, our 2-3 bedroom, brick and tile villas have all been architecturally designed to give our village a bespoke, resort feel. Here, you have no worries about ongoing maintenance of your house or garden as our friendly, onsite maintenance staff take care of that for you.

The houses and indeed the whole village are designed to be fully accessible to make it easy for you to get around.

With the community centre nearby and friendly residents all around you, you can move in and start living your life! See Your Social Life for more information on what we offer.

Friendly staff whenever you need them

Our managers, Daniel and Rochelle Skelton, along with our other staff are involved in the everyday life of the village. They take the time to get to know all our residents personally, giving you peace of mind to know that someone is always available to assist.

Meet your hosts at The Palms, Whangarei

Here at The Palms, Whangarei’s leading independent lifestyle village, our residents are at the heart of what we do, every day.

Formed back in 2006 our goal has always been to create a vibrant environment where retirees feel completely at home, allowing them to enjoy their retirement without any of the normal stresses of owning a home.

Independently owned, family business

The Palms is privately owned by two couples: Colin and Marilyn Parker, along with Daniel and Rochelle Skelton. Because we’re independent and have owners living close to hand, we can make decisions quickly. This means we can truly be responsive to the needs and wishes of our residents, and that’s what makes us unique.

Our staff

Community is at the heart of what we do here at The Palms, and you’ll find that all our staff are friendly and will take the time to get to know you personally – there are no strangers here! It won’t take us long to learn your name and we’ll go out of our way to assist you any way we can. You can be assured that when you call us or walk into our office you will be dealing with a familiar voice and face. This includes our maintenance staff so you can rest assured that anyone accessing your home will be known to you.


“We really enjoy living here at The Palms, feeling secure, reconnecting with old friends, and meeting new ones.

We certainly have never regretted our move."
