Our residents

Our residents come from a diverse range of backgrounds, professions and experiences and lead rich, fulfilling lives here at Glengara. Get to know some of our residents’ stories and find out why our village appealed to them and how living here has changed their lives.

Shirley, resident since 1999

"I’ve got so many friends here and I’m involved in many things in the village. You can do as much or as little as you like! I do a lot of entertaining, play cards twice a week, go to the monthly functions and enjoy supporting the various clubs. I’m also a Probus member and started a single’s group here in the village for those who are on their own. Life is very easy here. If you want to do the gardening, you can, and if you don’t want to, you needn’t! It’s wonderful. My family lives far away but they’re happy that I’m here. I have friends around me, I have security and I can go away and close the door without any worries - what more could you want?”

Toni & Tom Collings, residents since 2012

“We love the resort feel of the place - that’s what appealed to us. Our villa is very well designed with two bedrooms, lots of storage and a lovely courtyard - it’s like having a private oasis out the back! We’ve also been on three cruises since we moved in and it’s great being able to travel so easily. We pack up, shut the door and walk away - all the gardens are done while you’re gone and the neighbours keep an eye on everything for you. We really like the sense of community."

Jan & Nick Pearce, residents since 2012

“After we’d seen Glengara, we didn’t want to go anywhere else! We liked the atmosphere and the gardens and villas were just so beautiful. I was also overwhelmed by the Country Club - it looks like a five-star hotel! Our villa is perfect for us - with a lovely big back garden and an area where we can throw the ball for our little dog. It’s absolutely ideal.! We’ve been travelling quite a bit since we arrived but we always love coming back to our beautiful home. Even though we’ve got a lot of interests and friends outside the village, we’ve also made plenty of new friends and they’re very dear to us. We’re very thankful we did this and very happy to be where we are!”
