Answer the call to a carefree life

Kay had been considering a change for some time. She knew a change was the best option for her future, so in November 2016 she began the hunt for her new home. With many Retirement Villages in her area, Kay was spoilt for choice – and she knew it wasn’t a choice to make lightly!

“I visited a lot of Retirement Villages in the area and narrowed it down to just a handful by doing a spreadsheet of pros and cons. I based my choice on a tip from my financial adviser: ‘Pick the one that you have a gut feeling about, that’s calling to you’ ...

Ultimately, Kay let her heart lead the way: she made the call and set her course to Tranquil Waters.

Less to do, more to enjoy

Kay’s instincts were right. In the buying process, on the move-in day, and through every day since, Kay has been delighted with her downsize to Tranquil Waters. “What’s not to love about the staff? They are so on the ball with everything and give us a lot of laughs.” A single lady, Kay feels safe and secure at Tranquil Waters. No longer having to maintain her own home, she can relax and simply contact the staff with any questions or concerns. “It’s better than a regular unit [on my own],” says Kay. “When I need maintenance or repairs, I can easily access vetted contractors so I feel safe - and I know that I won’t be ripped off!”

A place to thrive and flourish

Kay has always been attracted to the villages’ energetic atmosphere and accessible activities. “It met all my requirements – for interests, stimulation, safety,” says Kay.

“I got the vibe that people at Tranquil Waters were ageing actively, which I liked. I was looking for ‘safe mobility’ and the whole layout was ready for that.”

She keeps busy and stays connected, making the most of the village’s lively social life.

“While I’m still mobile, I do lots outside the village – but there’s plenty here for when I can’t drive.”

Now, Kay is making the most of her lively lifestyle. Whether it’s a walk to the beach, or a laid-back laze at our outdoor pool, there’s always something to do – with a view!

“Look where we are,” she exclaims, pointing to the seaside scenery. “You couldn’t ask for better!”

Kay is glad she trusted her gut and made the transition to our village. She has settled in with a smile, lapping up the luxury of her new home and new life at Tranquil Waters.

“People at work say I have a real pep in my step since I moved here!”
