Getting a second opinion from family members is often the key when making the big decision to move home. That’s just what John and Margaret did, asking their son and his wife to check out The Henley on Broadwater as they weighed up their accommodation options. The verdict was clear.
“They said it would be perfect for us and we would be mad not to go for it,” John says.
The couple started looking for over-55s retirement complexes after “a couple of stumbles” on the stairs at their five-level villa at Clear Island Waters on the Gold Coast. After tours and careful consideration, they opted for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at The Henley. Like many other owners, the outlook over the magnificent Broadwater won them over.
“The views from all the units we saw were amazing,” Margaret says.
What’s more, they were impressed with the flexibility of The Henley management and sales team. For example, they were able to hold the apartment at The Henley until their home was sold and settled and then gradually move in their belongings.
“Compared with previous moves where it all had to be done in a panic on settlement day, this was a dream,” Margaret says. “The Henley team were so helpful and accommodating.”
Now settled into The Henley and the lifestyle if offers – with shops and restaurants and the expansive Broadwater Parklands at their doorstep – John and Margaret are feeling right at home. They also draw comfort from the on-site care program available at The Henley should they need it at some stage in the future.
“We believe we have made the right choice in coming to The Henley and look forward to a relaxing and enjoyable future here,” John says.
