A Holiday Lifestyle All Year Round
27 July 2021
Jack Price and partner Judith Powell were already both local to the Bellarine Peninsula area when they heard about a new retirement community called The Breeze Point Lonsdale.
“Staff from The Breeze did a presentation at our Combined Probus Club of Queenscliffe, and it sparked our interest,” recalls Jack. “We were both already thinking about downsizing and the idea of brand-new modern homes appealed to us.”
A couple of their friends from Probus ended up moving to The Breeze and when Jack and Judith visited them, they were blown away. “We both put our homes on the market straight away!” exclaims Judith.
It was the waterways surrounding the community that really sold them on the place. “The waterways make it very special and all the paths around them are flat for easy walking,” says Jack.
Judith moved into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom villa, whilst Jack opted for an equally spacious apartment right above the community’s club-style Waterside Pavilion.
“It’s like living on a cruise ship with all the things to do here,” says Jack who frequents the Waterside Pavilion’s state of the art gymnasium and indoor heated pool.
“I love the atmosphere,” says Judith. “It’s lovely to read the newspaper and sip on a coffee in the lounge area and meet up with other residents at the sports bar during happy hour.”
In this “extended living area” they can chat for hours with other likeminded residents. “We also get on so well with the staff,” says Jack giving a special mention to the community’s very helpful and friendly on-site concierge and management team.
Jack is part of the theatre group at The Breeze, which hosts weekly film nights for residents in the community’s exclusive 50-seat tiered movie theatre. “People also get involved in yoga, water aerobics, Scrabble group, book club, craft group, kayaking, bike riding and lawn bowls,” Judith’s list goes on. “But there’s no pressure to get involved in anything if you don’t want to, it’s totally up to you.”
“Oh yes!” they both exclaim when asked if they are happy with their decision to move to The Breeze. “It’s the best move we’ve made at this stage of our lives,” says Jack. “We’re both very happy! And everyone here seems to be that way. There are a lot of happy smiling faces here.”
