A new multimillion-dollar over-50s lifestyle resort on the Sunshine Coast has recognised the changing lifestyle demands of older Australians.
GemLife Pacific Paradise, by Australian retirement resort developer, GemLife, will include 96 premium homes, set within a secure, gated community with extensive, first-class recreational and sporting facilities.
To be built on 4.4ha of prime land on the Sunshine Coast, the development features larger-than-standard size homes, high ceilings, and upgraded, luxury fittings and finishes.
In keeping with GemLife’s other over-50s resorts, the Pacific Paradise development is designed to support active, engaged living in a resort-style environment, providing high quality, low-maintenance homes for empty-nesters or Australians looking to downsize.
GemLife CEO and director Adrian Puljich said he had set out to transform over-50s living with an innovative approach.
“Wellbeing and vibrant living are a priority. Our resorts deliver an exceptional blend of first-class recreational and leisure facilities for active and social lifestyles, together with meticulously designed, modern and stylish homes,” Mr Puljich said.
“We want homeowners to have maximum opportunities to connect and enjoy a quality lifestyle. Our country clubs, which form the heart of our communities, play a big part of this.”
The GemLife Pacific Paradise country club will be modelled on GemLife’s award-winning clubhouses on Bribie Island and Highfields, near Toowoomba.
It will accommodate an extensive range of recreational facilities including an outdoor yoga studio, pool with spa, fully equipped gym, sauna, ten-pin bowling alley, tennis, bocce and pickleball courts, a gold class-style cinema, art and craft studio, music room, wine room, and bar and coffee lounge.
While the Sunshine Coast is the second most popular destination for interstate migration, driven by its mild subtropical climate, relaxed lifestyle and comparatively affordable housing, the area continues to be popular within the state too, with its coastal centres favoured by empty-nesters and retirees.
According to GemLife, Pacific Paradise buyers are coming from in and around the Sunshine Coast region, Brisbane area and the Gold Coast.
GemLife Pacific Paradise has eight home designs, each with multiple facade and colour- scheme options.
All homes have three bedrooms with seamless indoor-outdoor living and feature top-of-the-range appliances, integrated surround-sound systems, security alarm systems and energy-efficient inclusions such as solar PV panels.
Unlike other providers in the industry, GemLife does not charge entry or exit fees, providing financial transparency and certainty for home buyers.
Homeowners also retain 100 per cent of capital gain.
