Over 50s Resorts - Luxury and So Much More!
Your 50s, 60s, 70s, and senior years are a time to reflect on the past and envision the future. It’s a time for slowing down, taking time for yourself, and spending more quality moments with the people you love.
For many seniors, focusing on their own wants and needs leads to re-evaluating their living situation. With the nest empty, do you still need so much space? Is the location close to schools and kid activities still serving you?
Relocating in your senior years can be a daunting idea for some. Many factors must be considered, including finances, proximity to family, access to healthcare, as well as community connection and activities.
For those who are at a crossroads, the idea of a formalized retirement community might be an attractive option. Not only do these communities offer amenities and housing options that range from comfortable to luxurious, they also provide the opportunity for seniors to leave behind the worry and hassle of maintaining a home and all its upkeep.
The current generation of retirees are well and truly bucking the trend of their parents and grandparents, looking to both downsize their homes and expenditures, while upsizing their lifestyles.
The answer: Over 50s Resorts.
Over 50s Resorts
Conveniently located in scenic locations across the country, over 50s resorts are an excellent option for retirees who want luxurious amenities and prime real estate without having to pay a fortune for a city apartment. These resorts are complete with luxury accommodations, host year-round activities, and offer companionship from other like-minded individuals. Your new lifestyle will be more about what you want to do, and less about what you have to do.
‘Opulent’ and ‘Luxurious’. How would you like to be able to describe your home using those two words? For those entering an over 50s resort, it is very much a reality.
Relocating from the suburbs is a dream for many, but affording a home in a scenic location is an out-of-reach dream for most. The best thing about over 50s resorts is that they are located in some of the most beautiful parts of the country. You can choose an over 50s resort that is close to the ocean, surrounded by rainforest, or set in the heart of a national park.
One of the best things about over 50s retirement communities in Australia is that they are filled with fabulous facilities, including dining, shopping, and entertainment precincts.
Active residents can take a stroll down to the on-site bowling green, or hit the tennis courts and perfect their backhand. Or perhaps a few laps in the pool or spritz in the sauna is what you’re after?
Want to stretch your social muscle? The main lounge, dining hall, and bars are great for meeting new people, and helping to turn neighbours into friends.
If you’re looking for something more relaxing, why not indulge yourself with a massage after a long day of retail therapy? The choice is entirely up to you.
Many of these properties have been designed by some of the best architects and interior designers in the country. This means that you can expect to find a wide variety of styles and designs for every type of person.
While some people may prefer modern, minimalist designs, others might want something more traditional or even rustic. Whatever your taste, there is bound to be something that suits your needs.
With the beautiful Australian landscape as inspiration, layouts work to cultivate a sunny state of mind, allowing you as the resident to turn the clean architecture and natural material finishes into the home of your dreams.
The best part? You don’t have to worry about maintenance or repairs on your home. Your community will take care of all of that for you so you can focus on enjoying life!
Palm Lake Resort Pelican Waters
Palm Lake Resort’s newest residence in Pelican Waters ticks all of the above boxes – and more! If the breathtaking location, designer homes, and top-of-the-line appliances haven’t convinced you yet, how about a world-class golf course within walking distance?
Pelican Waters Golf Course, already ranked the number one public access golf course on the Sunshine Coast, was designed by legendary Greg Norman himself. A quick buggy ride from your front door takes you to the first hole, where you can play one game after another.
Incentives like these and others are what Palm Lake Resort is known for.
What many seniors are looking for is a place where they can experience all the benefits of luxury resort living without feeling like they’ve checked themselves into an old folk’s home. The term ‘senior’ doesn’t have to mean ‘boring’, and at an over 50s resort, you can truly enjoy your golden years in style.
