Once the big house, the big garden, the swimming pool and all the maintenance problems have been offloaded, you’ll have time to upsize the quality of your life.
Depending on the complex, there are many different styles of accommodation and on site amenities such as indoor swimming pools, spas, gyms, a library, billiards table, entertainment room and restaurants, hairdressing salons and doctors’ surgeries. There are plenty of places to kick a football around, to play cricket or to feed ducks on the lake with the grandkids.
At lifestyle villages and resorts, you can be as relaxed or as active as you wish. Most offer a range of activities on site such as bowls, tai chi, bridge, woodwork, art classes, billiards, choir and movie nights plus a range of other activities such as bush walks, theme nights, theatre outings and so on. But it’s up to you. You can opt in or out.
