This is about Aveo Mountain View Retirement Village, Murwillumbah – not from an Aveo perspective – but from the perspective of those who live here.
I started this website as soon as I signed the contract for my unit, back in 2015. Having lived here now for more than three years, I am qualified to speak of the many benefits of retiring to Mountain View.
We live in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia, with the majestic Mt Warning and beautiful Tweed River right on our doorstep. Right here amongst the 28 acres of natural bushland that we affectionately call ‘The Village’, we have access to so much.
As you walk around the village you will see neighbours enjoying a quiet cuppa on their balcony, washing the car, or on their way to one of the great activities on offer.
No matter what they’re doing, most people have a cheery ‘good morning’ to offer as you pass by.
Life in the village is good
What makes the difference is the sense of community and belonging we share.
After a lifetime of studying, working, raising children, and paying taxes, we finally earned the right to retire and enjoy a slower, quieter pace of life.
We have a combined wealth of diverse life-paths and histories. Regardless of what jobs we had; where we lived; what car we drove; or how much we earned; here in the village we have the common bond of being retired, or at least – close to retiring. This is what creates the overwhelming sense of belonging, and the community that unites us.
At Mountain View we share more similarities than differences.
If you are creeping up on retirement age, do yourself a favour and check out a retirement village in your neighbourhood.
Or, come and check out ours. I think you’ll be surprised at what you will find.
It is all up to you
The important thing is that you make the decision that is right for you, going forward. The longer you put off making a decision about where you will live as you age, the more likely that someone else will make the decision for you, and it might not be what works best for you.
The population of Australia is ageing, and luckily, there are some great options available to help you age-with-ease.
If you buy a unit in a retirement village, the support you need will grow with you. Independent living units at Mountain View provide the freedom of living in suburbia, but with the assurance that help is there for you if you need it. Your like-minded neighbours will get to know you, watch out for your place when you are off travelling, and watch out for you when you are at home.
