Meet the purchasers: George & Lynn
Recent purchasers have been attracted to the beautiful lifestyle and amenity of Quayhouse. George and Lynn recently purchased with the intent to downsize and travel.
What made you purchase at Quayhouse?
We have lived in a big house with our family for almost a decade. Since retiring at Christmas, it’s just the two of us and we don’t want to worry about neighbours and gardens. We just want things to be simple.
What makes you most excited about being a resident of Quayhouse?
It’s the lifestyle. We have the top floor apartment, which is something to look forward to. To us, it’s about relaxing and just enjoying life.
What drew you to Port Coogee originally?
The location is near the beach and there are lots of beaches in the area with cafés and bicycle tracks. We’ve never lived by the beach before, so it’s going to be a nice change for us.
Why did you choose Quayhouse over the other Port Coogee projects?
The apartment size is a big plus. We looked at other apartments in the area and considered them all in terms of size and price, but nothing compared to Quayhouse.
Have you got lots of friends and family in the area?
My boys work off shore. One lives in Byford and the other Attadale. We have three grandchildren between the ages of 4-months and 24-years. It’s a nice area to have family around. You don’t have to stay in the apartment – you can go out and enjoy what’s around the apartment. The pool and the outside area, just sitting on the balcony, having a beer and enjoying the lovely weather – this is what we enjoy and Quayhouse is ideal set up for us.
Would you recommend Quayhouse to friends and family? Why?
A lot of our friends are younger than us and not interested in downsizing, but maybe when they visit us and see what we have they might change their minds. I hear that a lot of retirees are moving to an apartment rather than a smaller house. It’s a big decision but I would recommend it.
How do you envisage your life will change? Where are you at in life at the moment?
Our life will be about enjoying the apartment and enjoying going off in the caravan. We plan to do a mix of lifestyle and travel. We’re planning to be away for eight months while the apartment is being built and then we’ll be playing it by ear. The great thing is we can rent the apartment out if we want to travel and see Australia. It will be like a living holiday! If we don’t do it now, we’ll never do it!
