Exciting news! We are currently building 10 new villas - find out more


Purchase or rent our attractive, specially designed one or two bedroom villas, and maintain an independent lifestyle with more time to do the things you enjoy.


Our 33 attractive, light and spacious one or two bedroom villas offer independent living while enjoying an inclusive village environment. Bethsaida Retirement Village is the only Blenheim rest home offering villas to rent along with villas to purchase under an Occupational Right Agreement. For information about our purchase and rental agreements and to be added to our rental waiting list, please CONTACT our Village Manager.

Villas are specifically designed and purpose built to meet the changing needs of older people. They are newly redecorated in neutral tones, so that your personal touches and belongings can be added to make them into homes. There is easy entry into the lounge through a ranch slider door with a security screen. Villas are furnished with an oven, carpets, drapes, blinds, heat pump/air conditioning unit, double glazed windows, have ample storage, a bathroom with walk in shower and laundry area. Kitchens are carefully laid out with modern appliances, but if you don’t feel like cooking, you can have meals in our Rest Home dining room; you'll receive a weekly menu. Some separate garaging is also available. Each day our staff call or visit villa residents, to say hello and keep everyone connected with the village.

As villa residents you are very welcome to take advantage as much or as little as you like in all village activities. You’ll receive a monthly activities programme to help plan ahead.

We are conveniently close to Blenheim township with its shops, clubs and community, offering you freedom to come and go as you please. Our park-like grounds with their flat pathways and seating provide lovely spaces for you and your family to enjoy the sunny Blenheim weather.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Bethsaida Retirement Village community.
