"I'd visited a friend's mother in Patrick Ferry House, and thought Highgrove Village was a really nice place, and realised it would be perfect for David and me. Three years on we enjoy village life, we like to go for walks at Long Bay and I can drive to all North Shore amenities, it has all worked out pretty well for us". Kaye and David

"For people at my stage of life it's ideal. I got to the stage where I didnt want to worry about maintenance of the house. Five years earlier it may not have suited my lifestyle, but after my wife died, and living by myself,I decided the time was right to make the move. I still swim at Campells Bay, and enjoy 18 holes of golf on a regular basis, and take my caravan off on trips. I like this place because of the facilities, everything is new and my apartment suits me. And the Hospital is there should I need it in the future. I am very happy here". Ron

"One viewing at Highgrove and I made the decision to move in. Its a home away from home". Evelyn

"' When I saw Highrove I knew immediately it was where I wanted to be. My new home is perfect, an absolute dream for me, I'm in heaven. Its so peaceful and quiet. The people here are lovely, they take me shopping and on trips--its just wondeful". Pam

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
