The history of Maryville



Maryville Courts is proud to be the forerunner of Retirement Villages in Christchurch, and we continue to flourish! The Village comprises 65 independent villas, a Community Centre, which provides spacious lounges, dining and kitchen facilities, a games room with full-size snooker table, manager's office, nurse's room, library, and a hairdressing salon. The village has a park-like setting, sitting on 5 acres of lawns and gardens.  

The Village is staffed five days a week between 8.30am and 5.00pm; on weekends and public holidays a Senior Caregiver is on site between 9.00am and 5.00pm. Management personnel are on call in case of emergency situations and can be reached via the after-hours answering service. (An information package, which includes details of services, fees and our disclosure statement is available on request.)

Maryville Courts is governed by a Board of Trustees - The Maryville Courts Trust Board, which was established in 1983, and is registered under the Charitable Trust Act 1957. The Board is the owner of the land on which the units are built, holding it under a Deed of Trust from the Roman Catholic Bishop of Christchurch. Maryville Courts is fully interdenominational.
