Villages

It’s a lifestyle choice

Retirement is the time when you should enjoy life, liberated from the hassle of home and garden maintenance as we will take care of all that. You get your time back and more freedom to do the things you love.

The cost of entering one of our retirement villages is generally less than buying a home conventionally, there’s no stamp duty to pay therefore selling your home to buy into our retirement village can free up money for you to enjoy on whatever takes your fancy.

We know the importance of family and friends; your friends and family are welcome to visit and stay with you when they do. We even have a guest unit available for guest for a minimal daily cost.

What you can look forward to

Improved social life

At Lisle Villages you can connect with other residents in various activities such as keep fit & walking, poetry and life writing, movies, quilting and knitting and the monthly Happy Hour.

Feel safe and secure

Our villages offer piece of mind that you are surrounded by residents of a similar age and lifestyle, so you know who your neighbours are with the added benefit of the real sense of community in your village.

Not having to worry

We offer a responsive inhouse property maintenance and communal gardening service so you don’t have to worry about those bills for repairs and maintenance on your home or managing that large garden as this is all taken care of including out of hours emergency repairs.

Location Location Location

Lisle & Leaweena Lodge are nestled between the parklands surrounding Lake Claremont, Ballaruk Bushland and Claremont Oval, nearby Cottesloe Golf Club and just 2.5kms to Swanbourne Beach and Melvista Lodge is located opposite the beautiful parklands of Mason Gardens in the heart of Nedlands and close to all the amenities of the area.

Our Facilities

Lisle, Leaweena and Melvista Lodges are the perfect sized retirement communities.  Large enough to offer a safe and secure lifestyle and small enough that people become your friends and neighbours.  Whether you are entertaining your friends, enjoying a walk in the gardens, doing your daily workout or reading a book from our library, our villages are a place you will find relaxing and comfortable.

Our villages boast:

  • Community Rooms at all three lodges
  • A library at Lisle Lodge
  • 24/7 emergency call system on request
  • Visiting hairdresser at Leaweena Lodge
  • Visiting podiatrist
  • Well cared for common gardens
  • Close to public transport
  • Preferred home care service provider – White Oak Home Care Services

Costs and Ownership

When making your decision, it’s important to understand how buying into a retirement village is different from buying a residential property.

As with the majority of retirement villages, Lisle Villages charge a deferred management fee.  The Deferred Management Fee (DMF) is the traditional contract model for buying into a retirement village.  A DMF contract is a great choice if you are looking to make the most out of your retirement now by paying part of the costs when you move out and saving money up front.

Occupancy Rights

To qualify for a residency, you must 55 years or above, be retired from full-time employment and be capable of living independently. 

Long Term Lease

Our units are occupied on a ‘lease for life’ basis so while you will not own your home outright, you are granted exclusive occupancy for your life. 

Upfront Costs

The purchase price or “Ingoing Contribution” is the current market value of the residence. No Stamp duty is payable under current legislation.

Your Ongoing Costs

Each residence contributes a proportion of the village operating costs of staffing the village, providing facilities and services, and maintaining the properties and villages.  When you compare this fee to what you are paying now on rates, water, home maintenance and gardening you will probably be paying an equal amount.

Our current monthly operating fee includes council rates and water rates/consumption.

Outgoing Costs

This is payable when you leave the village. You will receive the amount of the new resident’s Ingoing Contribution less any costs you may be liable for under your Lease.
