Truly blessed to live in such a happy place

Eleven years ago Wayne and I decided to make the move to Retirement Living. We looked from Port Macquarie down the coast to Forster, Nelson Bay and finally the Central Coast. We looked at a lot of villages and actually paid a deposit on Brentwood. We were to meet with David Grassby however we rang him and advised of our decision on Brentwood. He then encouraged us still to come and have a look at Alloura, it was the best decision we have ever made. He showed us through the village and a unit he had in our price range. We walked in and even though it was to be refurbished we new we had found our forever home. Alloura Waters Village has a heart and soul, it’s home and when we drive up the driveway from wherever we have been, a warm and wonderful feeling takes over. We have made so many true friends and really enjoy all the Social Activities provided by the Social Committee, we even have our own band. We also have a great bar which is patronised by many at our Friday and Saturday Happy Hours and boy do we get Happy! We have many activities and our hard working Committee Members look after any issues should they arise. Wayne and I often sit in our lounge room and know we are truly blessed to live in such a happy place, Our Home! Carol and Wayne Peel

Alloura Waters – my forever home

Ken & I moved here in October 2015. We lived at Forster and decided it was time to move to a Retirement Village. We searched north from Forster and then came south. After looking at over 10 villages, we drove into Alloura Waters, looked at each other and said this is it.

We wanted a 2 bedroom, but nothing available with a possible 1-to-2-year wait. As we were about to leave Dave Grassby — Sales — called us back and said I have one I can show you. It is a one bedroom and supposed to be the new hospitality villa. We looked at it with our dog Harry who approved of the good-sized yard, so we said OK we will take it. Panic set in as we drove away — our house was not on the market. It was Tuesday — Wednesday saw Real Estate Agent — Thursday saw Solicitor — Friday on the market. Saturday 10am SOLD. Alloura Waters was meant to be.

As a couple we happily spent 6 years here. Made many friends who we came to call our other family. Got involved in Village life. We could garden if we felt like it, but the wonderful gardeners were always there for us. Maintenance again was there when it was needed, from changing a light bulb, fixing a lock, or replacing any appliances when they broke down — hot water service/microwave/oven — in other words staff are always there. From Manager to office staff and outside staff they were always there with a smile and courteous. We have our own bus, public bus outside the gate and a ferry at the end of the street. Our own library fully stocked with hundreds of books to cover all tastes. Cards and backgammon are other activities along with the pool table. Not to mention our bar and of course our Alloura Waters Band who have everyone singing and dancing when they play.

Alloura Waters has a reputation as being very social. This we found to be true — Happy Hours every Friday and Saturday nights and special events almost every month.

Ken passed away in March 2022 and the support from staff and residents was unparalleled. I am very fortunate to live here with my other family and continue to be involved with committees and activities and life in my forever home is GREAT.

Downsizing to our retirement dream

We moved from a large two storey home, where the upkeep and stairs were difficult. At Living Choice Alloura Waters we enjoy the easy access, with the undercover garage and lift to our apartment. We have everything we need here. It’s not like a retirement village at all, but more like a resort. The amenities are first class, and we enjoy the many activities they have at the beautiful new community centre, along with the pool and spa. We love it here – living on the waterfront is our retirement dream.

Support and friendship

We would strongly recommend moving in. From the day we put a deposit on our villa about a year ago, even before we had a buyer for our house, we felt we had support and friendship from all the staff at the village.

Our concern had been “how would we like retirement village life”. We soon realised that Alloura Waters afforded us all that we needed and more to feel part of a caring community. A nurse and medical help are only a push of a button away and garden maintenance and other maintenance is always available. We feel that it wouldn’t be quite as good at other villages. We wouldn’t have live-in management; an amazing number of residents with great abilities who give their time freely to liaise with management on our behalf; a beautiful swimming pool; numerous activity groups; and ideal situation for flat, easy (or long if you want it) walks to the water and the beautiful scenery etc. And not many have a club adjacent to a village (with gates for a short cut to the entrance) where good meals are readily available.

It takes time to remember residents’ names but we haven’t come across one that wouldn’t wave or greet us. This attitude seems to extend to Davistown itself – as we stroll down to the water’s edge we are greeted kindly by young and old. We are very pleased we made the decision to move into to Alloura Waters.

The most beautiful place we’ve ever lived

As financial director of a major international company I’ve lived all around the world, yet Alloura Waters is the most beautiful place I’ve ever lived. I’m very happy here – living on the waterfront, and close to beaches and excellent shopping, and I enjoy not having to do all the maintenance. I still travel and the security aspect of the village is great; I like to know my home will be safe when I’m away.
