It’s an affordable new way of living
The National Lifestyle Villages Group has set a new benchmark in Western Australia by creating a Home and Lifestyle Package for 30-50% less than the cost of a median priced suburban home.
By adopting the internationally recognised land-lease ownership model, National Lifestyle Villages has taken the ‘Great Australian Dream’ of owning your own home and changed it to create the Great Australian Lifestyle.
Land-lease ownership means that you buy and own your home and lease the plot of land on which it is located. In Australia, this model is commonly used in commercial buildings and facilities such as airports and ports. It is also the preferred model for all residential homes in Canberra, which are purchased on a 99-year lease instead of a traditional Freehold Title.
Your secure lease agreement gives you exclusive use of the land that your home is located on for up to 60 years, which includes ongoing exclusive access to all of the facilities and services available in your Village, as well as covering all the usual council rates and taxes.
By downsizing your home and upsizing your lifestyle, you can get rid of the mortgage or simply free the money that’s tied up in your old home. Life in a National Lifestyle Village gives you the freedom to enjoy life on your own terms.Enquire Now
Peace of mind
We are governed under the Residential Parks (Long-Stay Tenants) Act 2006 and its accompanying regulations, which affords you legislative protections and peace of mind.
Weekly affordability into the future
There are no hidden costs or surprises – just an affordable weekly rental fee (less Government Rent Assistance if you are on a pension).
The fee can be paid in full each week, or a smaller fee can be paid weekly whilst living in the community with the balance being paid in the future when you sell.
There is only one rent review on the 1st of July each year, and this is calculated using the WA Consumer Price Index (CPI) +2%, providing you with further peace of mind, especially if you are on a fixed income. In order to provide certainty of weekly costs, National Lifestyle Villages only does a market review once every 10 years!
"So one day at the tender age of 70, I decided I would give it a go"
The Avon Descent is conducted each year during the first weekend in August and it is quite a challenge.
As a member of the over 45 Kayak Association, I had been paddling a kayak up and down the Swan River for a considerable number of years. The Avon Descent was always at the back of my mind, like the Marathon is to a long-distance runner I guess.
So one day at the tender age of 70, I decided I would give it a go.
This decision caused considerable consternation and horror amidst the four generations of my family but they gradually accepted the idea and formed themselves into a very effective support team.
The start line at Northam is a very colourful scene with hundreds of kayaks and paddlers circling around in the still water, waiting to take off and disappear down the weir.
The first day had many exciting moments but my enthusiasm was being maintained by my descendants who were leapfrogging my progress and shouting encouragement from the riverbank.
"Reminiscing about the 1961 Swan Districts Football Club Premiership"
Reminiscing about the 1961 Swan Districts Football Club Premiership
Swan Districts Football Club had never won a Premiership in the WAFL League Competition. We languished at the bottom end, you could have called us cellar dwellers. However in 1957 the WAFL introduced an extra competitive team into the structure. So now all clubs had a League, Reserves and Thirds team, the last being in the 18-20 years bracket. This enabled the clubs to have access to nurture and improve the football ability of up-and-coming players. Swans were the Thirds competition inaugural Premiers in 1957 and again in 1958 which gave the club a little hope for the future.
In 1960, Haydn Bunton, a South Australian, was elected League Coach. From the outset it was obvious that there would be a massive shake up. The placid Black Swan club emblem was ditched, and replaced by the fierce, black fighting one. Training began in the hot summer months at weekends as well as mid-week. Weekends were up and down sand hills at Scarborough through to Trigg and mid-week around the Swan River, swimming across it, and of course, on the oval. Blood, sweat and plenty of tears!
