An Amazing Milestone Reached!!!

Tranquil Waters has achieved a milestone this month with the last of our new villas sold. Since the beginning of the year we have had quite a few residents move in and become part of our vibrant community enjoying the varied activity & social program.

A musical highlight enjoyed by many residents and their visitors recently was the Three Tenors concert as well as our own Tranquil Tones Elements Concert.

If you are considering your next move, why not re-visit Tranquil Waters to inspect the fully modern refurbished villas that are available now and we will have you settled before another long, cold, lonely winter sets in.

We can help you with any challenges faced when you decide to make the move and our new partnership with Adventist Aged Care has given our residents the assurance that help is available when further care is required.

The outlook, the outgoing atmosphere, the camaraderie or the comforts, whatever you're looking for, at Tranquil Waters you'll retire with complete confidence.

Village Street & Happy Residents

Phil & Dorothy ..

TRANQUIL Waters Retirement Village seems anything but ... Speak to long time residents Phillip and Dorothy Elliss and they will breathlessly tell you about the Sunday night dinners, the Monday morning teas, the craft sessions, canasta, social snooker, indoor bowls, bus lunches, shopping trips, line dancing, water aerobics, mahjong, embroidery, ballet movies, a 40-voice choir, ukulele club and finally that fun Friday Night Happy Hour. The calendar is bursting at the seams and a good number of the around 160 residents turn up at assorted events.

"We've always loved the Redlands and particularly Victoria Point. This place is just beautiful and there is so much to do," Dorothy said. "Our daughter was already living at Victoria Point and we had other relatives, but even those who have no one close are made to feel welcome here."

Friends in Waiting - Phil & Dorothy

Phillip and Dorothy numbered residents no.11 and 12 when they came to the village 11 years ago and say they have enjoyed their time here immensely. Phillip and Dorothy are the poster faces for the village, seen on bus shelters and in the local papers. "The people here are very sociable and absolutely fantastic and welcoming." they happily say.

Friends in Waiting - Phil & Dorothy "The decision was easy!"

Tranquil Waters has around 160 residents with 120 two and three bedroom brick and tile, low set villas. Community facilities include a community centre, heated swimming pool, podiatrist, hairdresser, library, computer facility, television rooms, arts and crafts, indoor bowls and two bars.

"We are associated with care providers who are available if and when required.  Only about five per cent of people ever need to go to a home. Most stay here. I think the quality of life improves their longevity.
Living here offers a new stage of life. Our singles group go on world tours together."

Friends in Waiting - Phil & Dorothy

Opposite the Thompson Street park in Victoria Point, Tranquil Waters is right beside the water, they note:
"We have one resident who said she was brought up by the water, lived by the water and couldn't do without it. It's pretty special."

Friends in Waiting - Phil & Dorothy "Here's to our wonderful dream retirement!"
