Our Affordable Lifestyle Villages promote environmentally friendly, secure and easy going village-style living for ages 25 and over. Because of this, we offer optional ramp access as well as provide a secure gated entrance for all residents. You can purchase your POD from $107k for single and from $256k for dual, and rent the land for an affordable monthly fee.


Villages sit on 10-20 acres of land and are close to schools and shops. As well as this, they feature cycle paths, nature areas, entertainment areas, pools (conditions apply) and public restrooms. All village maintenance, including lawns, is done by contractors.
