After moving from suburbia into their new home at Living Gems Caboolture Riverfront, Doug and Bev are having the time of their (very busy and very fun) social life.
FRIENDS AND SOCIAL LIFE – DOUG AND BEV
Friendships, activities, and fun – right on your doorstep
Doug and Bev have bought and renovated many houses since moving to Australia 26 years ago. A social couple they’d often be out and about in their suburban neighbourhoods. And, while they always had close friends and occasionally caught up with neighbours, it was never quite like the amazing social life they now have at Living Gems!
Embracing the vibrant close-knit Community they now call home, Doug and Bev are always meeting up with friends, seeing a show, playing bowls, catching a movie, or sharing a story and laughing over a relaxing drink.
“We noticed a huge difference between living in our traditional homes and the lifestyle at Living Gems. When we lived in suburbia, we didn’t socialise as much and the activities were limited because of the distance we had to travel to get to them. Here, you just walk 100m and you have something to do with your friends. It’s wonderful”, says Doug.
AN INCREDIBLY WARM WELCOME FROM DAY 1
Moving into a relatively new street in Living Gems Caboolture Riverfront last year, Doug and Bev were delighted by the amazing welcome they received from their new neighbours.
“Our street is very social and we instantly clicked with everybody. We hold street parties once a month, always look out for each other and occasionally head round to a neighbours garage for a few quiet beers,” says Doug.
ONE WORD FOR THE SOCIAL LIFE AND ACTIVITIES AT LIVING GEMS…’EXCELLENT!’
Extending their friendship group outside of their street, Doug and Bev have many friends in the Community who they love catching up with regularly. With so many activities and social spaces at their fingertips, every day is just like a holiday for this happy couple.
From Coffee Club and Movie Nights to Live Entertainment Evenings, Morning Melodies, and delicious (subsidised) dinners (cooked by a guest chef in the commercial kitchen) – there’s always fun and merriment to be had!
For those who love to stay active, the choices are endless. You can choose to play tennis, darts, pool pickleball, lawn bowls, or ten-pin bowling. You might also opt to swim some laps, try water aerobics, or kayak on the river (one of Doug’s favourite activities).
Or if you love crafting, playing cards, or reading – there are dedicated spaces for you to enjoy! How much or little you do, is entirely up to you!
RESIDENTS ARE THE HEART OF OUR COMMUNITY
With many Home Owners volunteering their time to help with community activities, it’s never a chore for them!
“We have two incredible women here at the Resort who organise a lot of the entertainment, dinners and delicious food deliveries of seafood, strawberries, and ice cream”, says Doug.
There are also volunteer bus drivers, who take Residents to places like the Eumundi Markets and the Races. Plus, there is the Green Thumbs Garden Group who grows and cultivates delicious, seasonal veggies all year round.
And, of course, there is the fantastic resort management team, who do an incredible job to ensure Living Gems Caboolture Riverfront is always the most wonderful place to live.
