Bob and Eileen Lerpiniere – Tudor Village
We thoroughly enjoy the life. We haven’t given up our bowls and we still run the grandkids to school in the morning. You never need to be bored with 12 to 14 things to do every week – just on the premises. From tai chi to needlework, events are always happening.
In a nutshell, it’s very quiet, neighbours don’t bother you (unless you want the company) and each place is built for privacy. At our village I take friends into the front garden and say, “What can you hear?” They say “nothing”. Exactly.
Overall peace of mind and safety is important, especially for the single women.
Beth Taws – Tudor Village
A safe, secure community. The management is very approachable, you know that everything you want done will be done. Management treats me like a person, not an old lady.
I’m so happy I came here, it’s a pleasant place to live where your privacy is respected. A safe atmosphere with neighbours who will look out for you. There’s 24 hour security and help at the press of a button.
Helen Wilson – Yarrbat Place
Relocating from Sydney to Melbourne after 45 years to be closer to family, Helen Wilson was prepared for a big adjustment, but really, there was no need. She had Yarrbat Place to cushion the landing. Four months of salubrious living later, Helen shakes her head in wonder, enjoying life at Yarrbat with family and friends.
“I love Yarrbat!” exclaims Helen, referring to her new villa inside the boutique resort that’s gaining a reputation for progressive 21st century living. Helen pays credit to the magical sanctuary-like setting (which she reckons has its own “serene sort of style”) and of course the resort management, Pinnacle Living, who she finds extremely hospitable and willing to go the extra mile to make her days as pleasant as possible.
It is said that Yarrbat’s 42 villas and apartments are perfectly-suited for low maintenance lifestyles for over 55s keen on recreation and relaxation (in that order).
