Les and Mary Rose – Seachange Riverside Coomera
Les and Mary Rose moved into Seachange at Coomera from Kings Beach Caloundra, where they had lived in a residential high-rise for 5 years. They began their search after flicking through a magazine over coffee in their favourite place, Montville, where they saw some advertisements for lifestyle Resorts.
After exploring several other villages they spoke with some good friends who mentioned Seachange. They made an appointment with Susan and came to have a look. It ticked all the boxes, and they were particularly impressed with some of the unique features. Les has a 4 metre kayak and will be encouraging Mary to join him on the water. The free flowing river was an ideal location for them with water sports as well as fishing all now on their doorstep.
They were impressed with the peaceful and quiet location, but with shops and other facilities only 5 minutes away. They also can’t speak highly enough about the after sales service they have received with any problems being quickly sorted out.
The unique double storey house with its dual street frontage, enables Les and Mary to still do some part-time work from home using the downstairs area as an office. With the wonders of the IT world they can work remotely in servicing some of their clients as they slowly move towards retirement.
They have their sons and their families living fairly close in Springwood and Ipswich, which was an added bonus and means that they get to see more of them.
Once they have unpacked all their boxes and found homes for everything they are looking forward to using the swimming pool, spa and gym, and may try Pickleball.
Les is from New Zealand, but has been in Australia for 36 years, so has asked that we don’t hold that against him. Mary is originally from England and was a nurse before helping Les in his IT business, firstly in the office but moving into IT and becoming quite proficient.
Les and Mary are enjoying their new home and lifestyle so much that they have volunteered to be a part of the new “Welcome Centre” at the resort. The Welcome Centre is a feature unique to Seachange and enables visitors to the resort to have a guided tour of the resort with a home owners rather than a sales person. This gives prospective purchasers a first hand insight in to what life in the community is like and whether it will be the right choice for them. The Welcome Centre operates 6 days a week at the resort.
