Enter the draw to win a fabulous Staycation weekend at a Metlifecare village! You’ll stay in a luxurious apartment or villa, at one of four premium retirement villages – Greenwich Gardens or Pinesong in Auckland; Oakridge Villas in Kerikeri; or Papamoa Beach Village in the Bay of Plenty. There are five to be won.

From the moment you arrive you’ll feel the holiday mood wash over you, and you’ll enjoy all that village life has to offer without parting with a red cent! We’ll stock the fridge but don’t worry about cooking; you’ll be dining at one of our on-site cafés or restaurants, where available, or at a local eatery.
You’ll enjoy access to all the village facilities, from the pool, to the bar, bowling green and more. You’ll also get the chance to join in on a few of the many activities on offer – from exercise and craft groups to mah-jong and wood working.

Don’t worry if you don’t win the big prize – we’re also giving away consolation prizes! You’ll be in to win one of 20 meals for two in one of our villages. You’ll have a chance to have a taste of village life and may even find the perfect fit for you*.


Located right in the heart of Kerikeri, Oakridge Villas offers a retirement lifestyle like no other. Not only are you surrounded by beautiful, lush gardens and stylish, spacious self-contained villas, you will also enjoy its very lively and vibrant community spirit.
