Residents of Aveo’s Island Point Retirement Living community enjoy a relaxed lifestyle on NSW’s south coast just a leisurely stroll from the natural beauty of St Georges Basin.
Located in the popular Shoalhaven region, the popular community provides retirees with a unique location beside the 12km long picturesque lake.
Just ask residents Dor Slinkard and her husband Wade who moved from their regional NSW property where they trained racehorses to make the most of a coastal lifestyle at St Georges Basin.
“We moved into Aveo’s Island Point community in February 2020 and it’s been perfect for us. We have absolute comfort, safety, and a supportive, friendly community,’’ Dor says.
“Our villa looks out to the water and it’s just lovely. When the sun sets in the afternoon it becomes a sea of diamonds.
“This whole area of the south coast is incredible, you could live here a lifetime and not see everything it offers.
“Wade loves fishing and I play golf just five minutes around the corner.’’
The couple enjoy a two-bedroom villa with a study where Dor, a successful published author, crafts her latest novels.
“It’s a lovely home, one where we are proud to welcome friends and family,’’ Dor says.
The retirement community’s final stage of 33 new villas is under construction and when work is completed later this year, the village will boast 157 modern and stylish villas.
Island Point’s Sales Manager Ellen Jennings says the community has become highly sought after by retirees locating to the Shoalhaven region.
“There has always been keen interest in this community, even more so with the final stage of villas being built. Once they are finished, the community will be complete, so this really is the last chance to secure a brand-new villa,’’ Ellen says.
“Residents are a mix coming from the local area or drawn from outside the region by the relaxed lifestyle and natural beauty.
“The location is really something and offers modern services, nearby popular local clubs and the lake where several of our residents swim or fish.
“St Georges Basin Country Club provides golf, tennis, bowls entertainment and dining options, while a supermarket, medical centre, chemist and post office are a short walk from the village.
“The low maintenance villas allow residents more time to enjoy doing the things they love and when they travel they just lock up and leave to travel knowing their home and garden is secure.’’
The community centre is the central hub of village life providing function spaces, indoor pool, gym, library, craft room, billiards tables, bar, salon and a workshop. Outside there are areas for entertaining, and residents’ communal veggie and herb gardens.
Island Point’s residents enjoy a busy calendar of social events and activities including happy hour, carpet bowls, card games, barbecue nights, day trips, craft and exercise classes.
The new villas, providing accessible living, are spacious with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full-size kitchen, premium finishes, a main bedroom with a walk-in robe, air-conditioning and ceiling fans, lockup garage, and a large undercover alfresco area.
Residents have a choice of villas with a study nook or a separate study that can also be used as a TV area or craft room.
Two-bedroom villas are available with a price range of $620,000 to $689,950. A display villa is open for inspection.
