Amber’s Country Club to open in April

Anticipation is building for the 19 April grand opening of the Country Club at Amber by Living Gems. The $10.5 million two-storey building is the jewel in the crown of the Logan Village resort with homeowners counting down the days until they can enjoy the full range of activities and facilities that the Country Club will offer. “This month sees the finishing touches taking place to transform the interior into a chic and modern facility that homeowners will love spending time in,” said Living Gems CEO Adrian Puljich. “Just a few weeks ago, the golf simulator was installed, which will excite many of our experienced golfers and will no doubt encourage new players to give the sport a try,” he said. “I know the games room will be very popular and residents will be keen to perfect their strike on the ten-pin bowling lanes which are now ready for the first games.” The Country Club is ready to host large gatherings with the commercial kitchen...

Sailing into retirement

Couple taking all the hard work out of downsizing Indulging in fun, physical activities to keep fit and healthy instead of spending time undertaking endless maintenance around a large house, garden, and acreage was the inspiration behind Ross and Rhonda Lillistone’s recent move to Amber by Living Gems over50s lifestyle resort. Previously, the couple lived for 19 years on a property at Esk and with Ross, 69, enduring some health concerns, they decided they would downsize while they were still young enough to enjoy all the first-class facilities available within the Living Gems community. “We also wanted to be closer to family, especially our daughter who has undergone some brutal cancer treatment over the past 15 months, and ensure whatever happens in the future, we would be there if she needs us while also being safe, secure and totally independent ourselves. Living here allows us to do that without being a burden on our family,” said Rhonda, 72. The decision to move to Amber...

The last remaining home is a premium three-bedroom Snowy design and is ready to move into straight away, said Living Gems Caboolture Riverfront Sales Manager Glenys Lowry who invited interested buyers to call in advance for a tour. “Our freestanding, three-bedroom designs have been very popular, and this home has two bedrooms at the front of the house separated by the main bathroom,” she said. “The master bedroom is at the rear of the home, with a separate ensuite and fabulous walk-in robe which means you have your own private retreat even when you have houseguests. “The master bedroom and main open plan living space open onto a large tiled alfresco area, which has uninterrupted riverbank views with no neighbour at the rear which is ideal for outdoor entertaining. “There are also beautiful, large established trees along the top of the riverbank...

Why Living Gems?

What is Living Gems?

Living Gems communities are simply lifechanging lifestyle resorts for the active over 50s. Our vibrant community of people may have retired from work, but they haven’t retired from life.

You’ll love owning a quality, designer home that features an impressive level of inclusions that some people consider ‘extras’, such as energy-efficient appliances and solar panels.

Enjoy peace of mind of knowing that there is on-site management on hand.

Another thing which makes Living Gems special is the great facilities at your doorstep, including an exclusive Country Club, with:

  • Grand ballroom with theatre stage
  • Bar and lounge
  • Games room
  • Cinema
  • Library
  • Art and craft studio
  • Music room
  • Gymnasium
  • Heated swimming pool, spa and sauna
  • BBQ pavilion, and much more!

Best of all, Living Gems is surprisingly affordable because it is a land lease community where your rights are guaranteed and protected by Queensland Government law.

Where are Living Gems resorts located?

Living Gems over-50s lifestyle resorts are found across South East Queensland, close to neighbourhood amenities including shopping and medical services. Discover Living Gems communities on the Gold Coast and in Eagleby, Logan Village, Pacific Paradise, Caboolture and Maleny.

Can I buy at Living Gems?

Residents at Living Gems are all owner-occupiers, there are no rentals or property investors. This gives our resorts a strong, community feeling that fosters life-long friendships as well as plenty of owner-organised groups and activities.

Living Gems communities are land lease communities which is the reason why they’re surprisingly affordable.

Ownership of the land is separate from the ownership of the home. Your right to live in your home is guaranteed and protected by Queensland State Government law for an indefinite period.

Because you’re buying your own home, there is no stamp duty to pay and should you decide to sell in the future, 100% of the capital gains made are yours. There are no deferred management fees here!

The only ongoing costs are:

  • Your usual household bills
  • Weekly site management fees which cover maintenance of the gardens and the full range of facilities on site.
Are pets welcome?

Pets are always welcome at Living Gems communities. We make everyone welcome.

Can family and friends stay?

Family and friends are very much welcome as your guests at Living Gems resorts.

Are there site fees?

Our affordable weekly site fees cover the cost of operating and maintaining your Living Gems resort. The fees are billed monthly and increase in line with CPI.

Our residents tell us that these site fees are much lower than many apartments’ body corporate fees while offering far more facilities, including the Country Club, other resort facilities, and on-site management.

If you have a Department of Veterans' Affairs or Australian Pension Card, you may be eligible to receive a Federal Government rebate.

Can I store by boat or caravan?

Many Living Gems resorts have storage for boats, caravans and motorhomes, subject to availability.

What’s the difference between a retirement village and a Living Gems resort?

Living Gems is a lifestyle resort for active over 50s who may have retired from work (although not always), but they most certainly have not retired from life. Our homeowners value their independence and are actively engaged in activities and events within the resort and in the wider community. Many are also avid travelers who value the ‘lock-up and leave’ convenience of knowing their homes are secure.

Can you rent in a Living Gems resort?

We find our homeowners prefer to buy their homes rather than rent, so we only offer homes for sale.

Do you pay rates in a Living Gems resort?

There are no council rates to pay at Living Gems, everything is covered in the weekly site fee which covers the costs of running and maintaining the resort.

Are there any exit fees I should know about?

There are absolutely no exit or deferred management fees to worry about at Living Gems. You own your home and should you decide to sell, all the proceeds, including capital gains, are yours.

Do you pay stamp duty when moving to a Living Gems resort?

Absolutely not. Because you own your Living Gems home, there is no stamp duty to pay when you move into one of our over-50s resort communities.
