GemLife active over-50s lifestyle resorts are distinctly different to retirement villages thanks to the innovative land lease model. GemLife Bribie Island residents own their luxury homes and ‘rent’ the land it sits on through weekly site fees that pay for the upkeep of the resort facilities, including the outstanding Country Club.
Our resorts are sought-after by people who are looking to down-size their homes and upgrade their lifestyle to enjoy a low-maintenance lock-up and go lifestyle.
You’ll pay no entry fees or stamp duty when you purchase a GemLife home. There are no exit fees (sometimes called Deferred Management Fees), should you decide to sell your home, which means you keep all capital gains made.
Land Lease Communities are based on a simple and transparent structure which provides homeowners with flexibility and financial freedom governed and protected by State legislation.
GemLife recognises that pets are part of the family. All GemLife communities are proudly pet friendly and feature facilities such as off-leash dog parks.
At GemLife Bribie Island, family and friends are most welcome as your guests.
Weekly site fees contribute to security gates, the resort bus, Country Club and communal area maintenance, as well as on-site managers and the administration of the resort.
If you have a Department of Veteran’s Affairs or Australian Pension Card, you may be eligible for Federal Government Rental Assistance which helps cover a large portion of a homeowners’ site fees.
