Our residents and families rest assured knowing that our team at Monte Vista is providing class-leading care. We are proud that Monte Vista currently holds 4 year certification from the Ministry of Health, placing it within an elite group of homes independently assessed as providing very high quality of care.
Monte Vista is the only independent hospital-level care provider in the greater Taupo area not related to a retirement village operator. This means that all our efforts at Monte Vista are focussed solely on providing great care, without compromise or distraction.
As one of the most iconic towns in New Zealand, Taupo provides a quintessentially Kiwi locale for great rest care. Nestled in a quiet suburb (while still being a stone throw away from the town centre), Monte Vista boasts exceptional views of Lake Taupo and Mt Ruapehu, guaranteed to delight residents and families alike.
The building itself provides a perfect interior for great care. Based on an easy layout, wings extend out from a central communal lounge, with all bedrooms conveniently close to it and the dining room. Each wing sports a separate smaller lounge often used as a quiet space, allowing for flexible living options.
Beautiful gardens and grounds around the building perfectly compliment the views, with an easily accessible flow between indoor and outdoor areas. Plenty of spaces for quiet reflection, as well as activities (yes, we admit we do love the occasional hangi), means residents are never left wanting for ways in which to enjoy the fresh Waikato air.
Monte Vista is well-known in the local community for its friendly and family-like atmosphere. Schools and community groups regularly visit and integrate with our residents, with plenty of cultural events and celebrations to entertain, surprise, and delight residents.
We provide a range of single rooms, with options for couples and some en suites available. Many of our light and bright rooms have direct views onto and over the lake..
Visit us today to help us find a perfect room for you.
|“I enjoy the fact that independence is encouraged. This means I can come and go as I please. I enjoy the staff, the meals and the extras that they do for us. I was pleased to be asked to be the Maori Advocate for Monte Vista and it’s good to see that the staff are learning about all cultures.”

“I liked the smiles and happy people I saw on my initial visits to Monte Vista Residential Care. I could see by the positive feedback from people who were already staying here and loving it that this was a place that people were happy to live in. Monte Vista has good food, caring staff and attractive garden. It is warm and friendly and gives peace of mind to the family who can take a break from worrying about me. I feel safe at night and don’t have to worry about falling, cooking, my health or bills.”
“What I like most about Monte Vista Residential Care is the scenery. I have people to talk to so I am not left on my own feeling lonely. I enjoy the peace and quiet. Monte Vista has friendly and listening staff and a good standard of care. I recommend living here because of the atmosphere. I liked the positive feedback from all the people who were already staying here and loving it.”

Helping you Throughout the HolidaysOur facilities are available to assist with short term care needs over the Holiday period
If you are going on holiday and are worried about the care needs of your loved one during this time, Monte Vista offers short-term care services to assist you. Our short-term residents can expect to enjoy the same great service as any of our other residents, including a full meal service, activities, clinical, and household services.
Because many healthcare staff are on leave during the Holidays (they’re only human, after all!), sometimes there may be some frustration in trying to access healthcare services during this time. If this is the case, then we may also be able to assist.
Not sure if we can help? Give us a call on 0800 00 55 11 and we’ll try our best to assist.
