A taste of holiday living at Pearl Retirement Resort

Monday, July 09, 2018

You could smell the sausages, hear the music and see the activities as we opened the doors to Pearl Retirement Resort on June 20. 

The Darwin community was invited into the resort – so they could experience the relaxed ‘holiday’ lifestyle on offer.

Resident Carol Goetze said the event was a great opportunity for people to see what Pearl was all about. 

“My husband Dennis and I have lived here for four years and we absolutely love it,” she said.  

“The Open Day really showed people how much comradery there is at Pearl – there’s a really friendly atmosphere.”

This was evident at the event as residents helped cook the Barbie and drive guests to the open home inspections. 

Many of the residents were available to chat to everyone as they arrived. “I mingled with people and loved showing them around the Leisure Centre,” Carol said. 

Brian Dienelt, our resident driver for the event, said the Open Day was a great way to show people the activities on offer at Pearl.  

“Residents do aerobics in the pool, table tennis and much more – having an Open Day really shows people the amazing facilities we have here.”

Over 80 guests enjoyed the event, complete with music performed by one of our newest residents Bill Roy, home made ice cream supplied by Crazy Acres and local radio station Mix 104.9 even came along to do a live broadcast! 

The reaction to the display villas showcased on the day, was a unanimous ‘WOW’ and the feedback since has been overwhelming, With only 2 homes now available, that taste of holiday living is fast becoming evident.
