Over-50s lifestyle resorts like GemLife Palmwoods in the Sunshine Coast hinterland bring new meaning to downsizing and are not only for retirees, according to GemLife CEO Adrian Puljich.

In essence, they celebrate an exciting new chapter for people over 50 who are keen to step away from the daily chores and maintenance of owning a larger home in the suburbs or on acreage in the country, and want instead to step out and enjoy the things they are most passionate about such as travel, sports and fitness, leisure, or the arts.

The concept has become so appealing that multiple generations of families are now moving in, keen to experience all the resorts have to offer as a close-knit family unit.

GemLife Palmwoods, surrounded by the scenic Blackall Range and natural bushland, incorporates many of the attributes most attractive to the over-50s demographic.

Premium country club and facilities
The resort has facilities to suit everyone ranging from a fully equipped gymnasium and heated indoor pool and spa to a luxury cinema, hair and beauty salon. There is also a ten-pin bowling alley, floodlit tennis court, creative arts studio, library, music room and so much more.

Well-designed homes with quality inclusions
Home is where the heart is and GemLife offers a wide choice of designs and colour-schemes, with luxurious standard inclusions and a six-star energy rating.

The gated resort offers a safe environment with a multitude of security systems in place for peace of mind.

No entry or exit fees
GemLife’s over-50s lifestyle resorts operate differently to retirement villages with residents buying their home and paying a weekly site fee to lease the land. If they later sell, any capital gains are theirs, and there are no stamp duty fees or entry or exit fees.
