"I am so happy that I made the choice to downsize. I have more time to do all the things I enjoy and minimal time on the household necessities. Less stuff = less work! We have a great community atmosphere. I know all my neighbours names – and they are all so friendly. You can be as private or as public as you wish. I would recommend Bloom to any senior – you know they care about you having a good experience living there, and you do. I buy the veggie plants and my neighbour plants them and looks after them – didn’t get that in the street where I lived before!"

"Anne & I feel fortunate in deciding three years ago to shift into our Bloom Apartment in Papatoetoe. It is so well designed and built and is situated close to shops buses and rail which is important as we age. Having our own Title on this property was a big factor in our decision to purchase.
With an age restriction in place and good in-built security, we can lock up and go away with confidence. There is a common interest among us and residents have formed close friendships and socialise together or just prefer to do their own thing. The mix seems to work very well and we’re happy to have made the move."
Dennis - Bloom St George, Papatoetoe
"I love the downsize. It means very little housework. I love having a small manageable garden and raised veggie patch outside my door. I love living close to town with shops, cafes, cinema, doctor and hairdresser all within walking distance. Most importantly I enjoy the company and support of very pleasant neighbours . I am happy that Alfie, my little dog has been welcome in the complex!!"

"A decision to buy an apartment in Bloom has brought me contentment, security and friendships. It also gives me a feeling of pride and was the best decision I could have made."

"Living in Bloom Takapuna is just perfect for me. There are many aspects I could single out. A few that come foremost to mind is our locality, being close to the shops, close to the beach, close to the bus stops. Living in a safe environment with very agreeable neighbours is also a valuable aspect."
Sue - Bloom Auburn, Takapuna
"I have lived in my apartment for a year now and every day think how lucky I am. The location is perfect, design and build great and when you live by yourself security is paramount. I have met some lovely people and developed great friendships. Downsizing was a bit of a challenge but ultimately you realize how little you actually need."
