Testimonials from our wonderful residents

Thank you to those residents that offer testimonials about their experience living at Living Choice Broadwater Court retirement village. We value what our residents have to say, and the Living Choice team work hard to ensure that we are exceeding resident expectations.

Here are some of the wonderful testimonials we have received:

That was where I wanted to live

If you had asked me if I had envisaged spending my retirement in a retirement village, my response would most definitely have been No! But a few months of retirement in Sydney and the isolation I experienced initially, and a very converted Central Coast friend found me looking at villages here on the coast. On walking into Living Choice I knew immediately that was where I wanted to live. Almost a year later, with the blessing of my family, I became a resident and almost 5 years later I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I have a wonderful group of friends and have become a representative for residents in the village and a confirmed Central Coast resident.

A big thankyou

A big thankyou to the amazing team at Living Choice who made our uncle’s transition into independent living; with lots of surrounding support to aide in keeping him that way, seamless! 

The whole experience was very low stress, we were assisted throughout the process. Starting with Dave navigating the purchase, Kerry and Toni in the office, lovely neighbour’s and others, checking in throughout the process to assist both us and Marcus.

The assistance hasn’t ended there. The community within Living Choice is active and vibrant, with lots of resources available to suit a broad range of needs for all residents. Highly recommend! 

Thanks again, Lisa Shelton

Enjoy the tranquillity

My wife Ann and I moved into Living Choice Mountain View Estate, just over five years ago. We are both keen international travellers spending many days on Camino paths in Europe. The Villa we bought is ideal as we can simply walk out the door and go away for 2-3 months without worry, knowing that our home is safe and secure.

When at home we enjoy the tranquillity of the village plus the many facilities such as the Gymnasiums, pools, and libraries. In addition, the proximity to many walking trails, including Kincumba Mountain, plus the Kincumber Shopping Centre, all within walking distance of our Villa is a huge bonus. On top of this we find the staff extremely helpful and friendly.

We all look out for each other

I have lived in a villa in Living Choice Broadwater Court retirement village in Kincumber for about 5 years. I moved here with my dog when I sold my house. It is a good arrangement as I can live independently and my villa is maintained with nice gardens. There is security of living in a community, we all look out for each other and the village team is available when I need help. For me Broadwater Court is conveniently close to a range of services I use, including healthcare, the shopping centres, social places such as cafes, a hotel, clubs and a public library. I have joined a local ukulele group and the village cycling group and walking group. Looking to the future when I no longer drive, I may need to use the village bus service to the local shopping centres and other venues.

A very happy home

I moved into this comfortable, well planned new villa in December 2001. I chose the unique Frost Estate in preference to other retirement villages in the area because of its size. This has proved to be a great asset as we all know one another and thoroughly enjoy our activities and meetings in our own community room. Also we are encouraged to use all the facilities in the main complex, such as the swimming pool, spa and exercise room, snooker tables etc.

The ongoing care and interest shown by the management and staff and the feeling of safety engendered by the security gates and night patrol have made this a very happy home.

We really enjoy the whole Broadwater Court atmosphere

After months of deliberation including visting seven retirement villages – four on the Central Coast and three in the northern beaches – the courtesy, advice and, in particular, the patience of the Broadwater Court staff made our final decision easy.

Having now experienced village living our decision has been more than vindicated.

The excellent care, support and maintenance teams take care of daily matters giving complete freedom to enjoy this new lifestyle.

Features which greatly enhance our living standard are: professional health care; close proximity to the shopping village including 24 hour Bi-Lo; every professional service within one block; ease of returning to Sydney on regular basis, conversely, similarly for our daughter to spend time with us; level walking throughout the village; villa design and inclusions.

Added to this is the multiple choice daily activities including: three weekly shopping trips, monthly city bus trip; regular half day and full day outings; indoor bowls, arts and crafts; mens and ladies aquarobics classes (what a difference an indoor heated pool makes!); card games; tai chi and snooker. Then trivia nights, catered dinners, theatre trips, happy hours and theme nights. It is difficult to be lonely.

We really enjoy the whole Broadwater Court atmosphere and the many new friends we have made.

Our ideal retirement option

The Frost Estate, in which we live, seemed right from the start to be our ideal retirement option. And so it has turned out to be. First of all it is small. Just sixteen single-storey houses which promote neighbourliness and was not too much of a leap from our old home as it might have been if we’d gone into a village of several hundred villas and flats. And it is all on the level with a short flat walk to a good shopping centre. And if we take a small detour, the bellbirds on Kincumba Mountain are a sheer delight.

Secondly, we are shielded from the road outside by a large wireless controlled gate. This, together with security patrols and the deadlocked security doors to our house front and back, ensures protection for us and our home, even when we re away, which is a great comfort.

Thirdly, and most importantly, this is a “Living Choice” development. We live in our own modern house fitted with the latest appliances including an automatic garage door, and yet if, as we get older, we need help then it is there. We’ve seen this in action with some neighbours not so lucky in health as ourselves, who needed help with cleaning, cooking, getting to shops, doctors, hospitals etc, and all being provided promptly and at low or zero cost. We all have “Viatel” buttons in case of any health emergency and nursing staff visit us from time to time. With “Living Choice” we can expect to live out our days in our own home without worrying.

We have become a family of friends

It has been almost 10 months since Jan and I moved into our new villa at the Frost Annexe – and I thought it would be nice to let you have a little feedback about the complex. With only 16 villas in our community, all of which are now occupied, we have become a family of friends and have regular organised social activities in our community room.

Being only a short drive to a number of surf beaches such as Killcare, McMasters, Avoca, Nth Avoca and Wamberal, I enjoy many early morning fishing trips. We also enjoy the 15 minute drive to Erina Fair shopping centre, but then it’s only a 300 metre flat walk to our local Coles Supermarket at Kincumber anyway. By the way, I think that the electronic security gate at the entrance to our complex is probably the best idea for retirement villages since the age pension.

What a welcome

A very belated thank-you to all personnel at Living Choice Broadwater Court for the exceptional help and assistance which was given so freely when we moved into the complex. From the comfort of the luxurious guest suite before settling into our beautiful villa, to the visits of various personnel to ensure that all was as it should be, and to the 3-course meal and baskets of fruit and flowers which followed … what a welcome! All this friendliness made it so much easier to leave friends behind on the Sunshine Coast; and also easier to adapt to the climatic shock of the winter temperatures!

Now that we have almost settled we are getting to find our way around and to meet our friendly fellow residents. There is so much about the village which we love and we feel sure that every day will make it feel more like home.

Thank you Living Choice

It’s been six weeks since we moved to Broadwater Court and we would like to thank Jenny Trovato for her help during the entire process of moving. We appreciated the number of times you allowed us to inspect the property before, and after, we placed a holding deposit. We also appreciated the patience shown by Living Choice when our house at Forresters Beach failed to sell on the designated auction day.

The move itself was made less stressful when Living Choice allowed us to store items and boxes in the garage leading up to the official settlement day, including the delivery of new furniture. This enabled us to “phase in” our move over several days, which was a big help and much appreciated.

Lastly, the meal provided for us on our first night in the apartment was a lovely gesture. I would also like to compliment Living Choice on the level of follow-up and the scope of information given to us during our first week in the village. We settled in quite quickly and are making full use of all the wonderful facilities with our new group of friends.

Cruising into retirement

After living in Thornleigh for 33 years, we have moved to Living Choice Broadwater Court Waterfront Estate. We have been looking at Over 55 lifestyle resorts since my retirement two and a half years ago and the villa we have moved into ticks all the boxes.

The villa is in a gated community and is a very roomy 210sqm – larger in fact than our old house. The aspect is east/west with lovely afternoon sun filling the back patio, family room and kitchen. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge lounge and a double garage for the first time in our lives. To top it all off we are at the end of a cul-de-sac, which has a back lane walkway access to a medium size shopping centre with Coles, banks, coffee shops, restaurants and more, plus a bus stop into Gosford only 150m away.

The estate also comes with a clubhouse with pool, spa, gym, pool table, library, woodcraft workshop, cinema, kitchen, bar and social area to boot. So we are really doing it tough as we cruise into retirement!

Elayne still works in Sydney and takes the express train to work. I spend my time cycling on the numerous bike paths, swimming laps in the pool, attending weekly happy hour, morning coffees at the Guru Café after dropping Elayne in the morning at Gosford Station, and preparing the evening meal for her return in the evening. Oh, and also my Thursday babysitting duties when I look after Matilda (2). Life is bliss but I have just realised that I am now too busy to relax and read a book!
