The Verge’s like-minded community and perfect location seals the deal for the Hulmes

A relaxed lifestyle and peace of mind in an unbeatable location on the Gold Coast is what drew Elaine and Peter Hulme to The Verge at Burleigh.

Situated just minutes from the beach and public transport with incredible views of Burleigh Golf Course, The Verge suits them to a tee.

“We spent the last 12 years in different over 50s resorts. The most natural next step for us was moving into a retirement community,” Elaine said.

They were among the first residents to move into The Verge retirement community in April and don’t ever plan on leaving.

“Location got us in, but we have been impressed with everything,” Elaine said

“We have a three-bedroom unit that really suits us and we have no intention of moving.”

While location was the main drawcard, the Hulmes were also attracted to The Verge’s secure community, wonderful facilities and beautiful, modern apartments.

“What The Verge offers is security and friendship in a great location.”

“We have made some really good friends. We love the community feeling,” Elaine said.

Great for now, perfect for later

The Hulmes have registered for aged care services for the future, and knowing they can access these services in their own home at The Verge gives them peace of mind.

Elaine says the village also has everything they need for day-to-day living.

“We have a gym and I participate in tai chi, yoga and dance which is great,” she said.

“We can also walk out of here, down the path and into the golf course and have a drink or a meal.”

The Hulmes are regulars at the village’s Tee House café and enjoy utilising the nearby bus service when they feel like venturing out for a bite.

“If we want to go to Burleigh Heads or Broadbeach for lunch, instead of trying to find a car park, we often catch a bus,” Elaine said.

Elaine said it was also nice to have access to the village’s minibus that makes regular trips to places like the botanical gardens, Mount Tamborine and the art gallery.
