Living Choice Retirement Villages
Retirement for the "un-retiring"
Since 1992, Living Choice has been creating stunning retirement communities in premium locations, offering a wide choice of homes, facilities and services. Our award-winning over 55 communities are located across three states – in NSW, QLD and SA – and they are the perfect choice for those looking for quality retirement living.
Our villages are more like resorts where you don’t have to worry about garden or home maintenance and can enjoy an active, vibrant lifestyle with like-minded people. Living Choice offers a range of living options and leisure activities in safe, secure retirement villages located in some of Australia’s most prestigious locations. Our independent living retirement homes are designed to complement and enhance your lifestyle in retirement. Each residence is light, spacious and offers quality finishes.
Our resort style villages are professionally managed while maintaining the supportive personal touch with great service. Living Choice is a member of the Retirement Living Council and a signatory to its Code of Conduct to ensure that we operate to the highest possible standards. All Living Choice Villages are accredited under the Australian Retirement Village Accreditation Scheme (ARVAS) Standards. We are also an Accredited Provider of Home Care services, which means you may never have to leave your home should you need extra help.
We invite you to explore our site to see why Living Choice is the perfect choice.
The quest to build Australia's finest retirement communities
The creation of Australia’s finest retirement villages has been the driving passion of Living Choice Directors, Ian Tregoning and Graham Hobbs, since they purchased Living Choice in December 2003. The first Living Choice village opened in Davistown, NSW in 1992 and, with Ian and Graham at the helm, it is now one of the largest privately owned retirement village companies in Australia. Their 11th and 12th villages – Living Choice Parkwood in Queensland and Living Choice Galston in NSW – are set to become further award-winning retirement destinations.
Recently, the company expanded its operations to include the construction of residential terrace homes and apartments, building The Somerton Residences and The Brighton Apartments in Maroochydore. In July 2022, it received Planning Approval to build its first Over-50s Lifestyle Community at Mount Barker, with construction now started. In June 2023, Living Choice also announced the purchase of 22.3ha of land in Murray Bridge, where it will build its second Over-50s Lifestyle Community.
Ian and Graham have extensive experience in the hospitality industry through their company EDP Hotels (formerly known as the Eureka Hotel Group, which was established in 1993). Since purchasing Living Choice Australia Pty Ltd, they have increased the Living Choice portfolio to more than 1,720* completed units (with many more under construction).
There are now ten operating Living Choice villages in Australia - at Kawana Island and Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast, Flagstaff Hill, Fullarton and Woodcroft in Adelaide, Glenhaven and Marsfield in Sydney and Davistown, Kincumber and Woy Woy on the Central Coast.
Ian and Graham are not only committed to creating highly desirable communities where residents can enjoy life to the fullest, they are also mindful that residents may need more care in the future. Living Choice Home Care was established in late 2017 and is now available at all their villages to provide a wide range of home care services.
