What our residents say about Longridge

"I Wish I'd Moved in Sooner!"

I love living at Longridge. I wish I had moved in sooner! The residents are very friendly and we all get along. We are well looked after by village staff and management. If we have any problems they are onto it straight away. My villa is warm and cosy.

"It Only Gets Better."

Being among the first to move into the village, things weren't finished, but the communication was great between management and us. All we had to do was ask and it was done. We were made to feel very welcome. Things haven’t changed, it only gets better. After looking at other retirement villages, we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. We have made so many friends in the village.​

"The Best Decision We’ve Made."

The best decision we’ve made was to move to Longridge. It has lovely friendly people, lovely management, lovely villas and a great lifestyle.

Nothing is too much trouble.​


Laurie & Kathy Baker - Whitianga

"We are enjoying a stress-free retirement on our modern, sunny villa. There are plenty of opportunities to socialise as and when we choose too - it is good to know there is company and help at hand if we need it. We are certainly pleased that we made the decision to move to Longridge."

John & Nola

"We moved here from Taranaki, at first I was a bit apprehensive about moving to a retirement village. But now, 3 year later, it’s the best thing we ever did. Theres always plenty to do. The residents are all nice and friendly. We are so glad we came to Longridge.”

Sonia and Paddy

We shifted into Longridge from Papamoa 21 months ago . Never regretted a day. We love our roomy villa and all the friendly people. We have at least a laugh a day and that’s what we need at our age!

I chose Longridge as I was looking for a retirement community out of Auckland with individual Villas. I loved the village on sight and decided it was where I wanted to live. The people are lovely and there is a real community feel here. There are regular day trips and weekly activities if you wish to join in. Socialising is easy and everyone looks out for each other. Paeroa is central to a lot of different communities 1 hour from Bombay, Hamilton & Tirau, 1/2 hour to Thames, Waihi and Te Aroha. I love it here.

"It has been 2 years since we became part of the ‘Longridge family’. What an incredible decision we made. Reasons include: A likeminded community which allows you freedom to choose a vast variety of bus trips, activity participation, involvement in the ‘Village Garden’. A ‘Happy Hour’ weekly where no financial input required. The villas are outstanding, well built, great variety of designs, warmth in abundance, price. Beautiful gardens attended by a great team. A very comprehensive library. Management who always put ‘residents’ first. The other major factor is proximity to the Coromandel, Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga. Living under the Longridge hills is amazing, with a changing visual landscape daily. Make the right decision come and join us, we would love to have you."

I realised soon after moving into my Villa at Longridge Country Estate that it was a “Gem”.  Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the design of the Villas, from their aspect to the sun, to the many features that have been incorporated within the design to enhance our comfort and convenience. My living room is really spacious and has this charming contemporary style that feels both luxurious and cosy at the same time.

The entire home is fitted with many safety features so that I can call on assistance at any time, should the need ever arise.  I love the feeling of security and confidence that brings me.  The community within Longridge is strong with a wonderful kinship.  I have found a  sense of belonging to an amazing group of people.  There is certainly plenty to do at Longridge too and I can choose the level of participation that suits me.  The staff who maintain our villas and gardens  are so friendly and committed.  I am so pleased I made the decision to come to live at Longridge.
