NLV is renowned for its world-class resort facilities
Imagine waking up in the morning to soft sunlight spilling through your window. It’s Saturday, which means there is a Tai Chi class in the Clubhouse. You head over, picking up a few friends along the way. After the session, everyone hangs back for a cup of tea, and you find yourself planning your next holiday while you wonder what to do for the rest of the day.
You could join the group gathering on the bowling green ready for some competition bowls. Some spectators are firing up the barbecues, and soon the smell of bacon and eggs will fill the area as breakfast is served to the gathering crowd.Enquire Now

Jacquie and Keith
When new Oyster Harbour Lifestyle Village Lifestylers, Jacquie and Keith Moreton took a leisurely drive through Albany while on holiday, they cruised down Elizabeth Street, liked the sound of Oyster Harbour, followed the directions and fell in love the minute they entered the front gates.
What drew you to Albany?
Keith is from Albany originally and he always wanted to come back after living in the UK for most of his life. I am from Melbourne so there was no convincing me of moving here. We were living in a large, late 1970s five bedroom home on an 800sqm block near Rockingham at the time, and the up-keep was just getting too much for us. You don’t want to be climbing ladders and cleaning gutters in your 60s.
Did the Perth summers influence your decision?
Absolutely. We just couldn’t handle it anymore, even though we had an air-conditioner. It doesn’t rain anywhere near as much as the weather reports say down here. It’s still warm and sunny and the skies are beautiful and clear. You really notice the lack of pollution because we are near the harbour and the sea which gives a lovely ambience.
And now, how is the new lifestyle working for you?
We love it. You’d have to drag me away screaming! When we retired Keith hadn’t been well. We started to miss contact with other people and began to feel a bit socially isolated. I tell you, we have been made so welcome here. We feel like we belong. Being able to bring our aging dog was also a big deciding factor for us. Leaving him behind would have been a huge wretch.
Keith says it’s like a movie roll every time we take the dog for a walk. That’s the lovely part about Oyster Harbour.
You mentioned you like being part of a growing community
We like the fact that we are the pioneers down here. We can go through the teething stages, add our voice and watch it grow like a teenager. If people want to be a part of that they should come down!
We like how the weekly rent covers a lot of things that we’d be putting money aside for every fortnight previously. Everything is here so we don’t need to go anywhere locally or pay membership fees.
Jacquie and Keith kindly provided this testimonial in 2014. If you’d like to view this wonderful Village, call us on 08 9844 0000 or discover more about Oyster Harbour Lifestyle Village here.
"Ray and May have more time on their hands"

Ray and May
Ray and May were looking forward to a leisurely pace of life once they stopped working, but it didn’t quite work out that way. Between spending time with their new grandkids and looking after the maintenance of their big family home, they were busier than ever.
Their decision to downsize and upgrade into a brand new home at NLV solved the problem. Their lifestyle home was so much easier to look after, they now have more aquality time to spend with their grandchildren, as well as time for bowls, tennis, swimming, golf or socialising with their new friends… without having to drive anywhere!
