Embracing over-50s resort living
Peter said moving to a smaller, more low-maintenance home in the resort allowed him to live life to the fullest.
“I’ve become much more active because I don’t have to spend as much time cleaning or taking care of a garden and a lawn, so I have more time to dedicate to things that I enjoy,” said Peter.
“I like to use the gym about three times a week and my wife Anne and I also like to attend as many of the social events as we can to meet new people.”
Among GemLife Bribie Island’s first residents, when Peter and Anne first bought into the resort it was just a block of land.
“We’ve been able to see everything come together from scratch. We were very surprised by the quality of everything from the homes to the facilities,” said Peter.
Peter said the decision to move into an over-50s lifestyle resort was an easy one that he couldn’t recommend highly enough.
“Living here is like being on a permanent holiday. You can do what you want, when you want, how you want without having to worry about taking care of a big home.”
Another aspect of the resort that Peter and Anne enjoy is the friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
“Everyone is very nice. We love meeting new people and we like to get together and have a good time and everyone will stop and have a chat.”
