April 27, 2024 BY

As the years pass and retirement beckons, one question resonates: where should we spend our golden years? For many, the answer is Bellarine Springs in Drysdale, a place that offers comfort, companionship, and convenience.

The McMillans, residents of Bellarine Springs, share their views, revealing why this community stands out as a place where one doesn’t just live but thrives.

First Impressions: A Smooth Transition

Moving into a senior living community can be a daunting experience, but for John and Renata, their initial impression was one of relief and contentment. After the arduous process of downsizing and selling their family home, Bellarine Springs offered them a haven of comfort. John and Renata recall the first few weeks as a bit of a blur, filled with the joy of unpacking and getting settled. Their transition was smooth, and they couldn’t recollect a single negative feeling during those early days.



Neighbourly Love: Friends Await

You know what they say, “Home is where the heart is.” The heart of any senior community is its sense of community. John and Renata were welcomed by their neighbours who offered assistance without overwhelming them. The residents’ association also extended a warm welcome, providing valuable advice and information. “The friendliness of our neighbours and the spirit of camaraderie among residents made us feel like we were part of a big, happy family,” shared John and Renata.

Amenities Galore: Your Playground, Your Rules

Bellarine Springs offers a wide array of amenities to enrich residents’ lives. We have enjoyed the swimming pool and community centre, but what truly stands out is the freedom to choose how and when to engage with these facilities.

“The choice to become involved or use the facilities is entirely yours,” remarked the McMillans, highlighting the absence of pressure to participate in any activity.

Customer Service: Where Your Wishes Matter Most

Exceptional customer service is a hallmark of Bellarine Springs. The team, led by Kent, the village manager is accessible, approachable, and receptive to our suggestions and ideas. The village coordinators, Meagan and Sharon, are friendly and eager to assist, while the dedicated gardeners, Frank, Rob and Nathan, ensure the village grounds are immaculate.



Location and Convenience: A World of Amenities

Bellarine Springs isn’t just a community; it’s a smart choice. Nestled in a picturesque setting, it boasts proximity to essential services. We enjoy easy access to supermarkets, pharmacies, medical facilities, and dining options. Being just 20 km away from the major hospitals and Allied Health care in Geelong adds an extra layer of convenience. Talk about convenience! What sets Bellarine Springs apart is not just the location but also the quality of a real home construction, providing a sense of permanence. The well-thought-out design, architectural variety, and spacious roadways add to the community’s unique charm.

Living Experience: Where Peace Meets Privacy

Privacy and tranquillity are not just words here; they are a  way of life. Our neighbours are friendly but never intrusive. It’s the kind of place where you can truly relax and enjoy your peace and quiet.

Resident Recommendation: A Heartfelt Stamp of Approval

What if you could experience a slice of this wonderful life yourself? Bellarine Springs isn’t just a place; it’s a feeling. It’s the feeling of coming home to a place where you’re surrounded by friends, where you have the freedom to live life on your terms, and where your need is met with a smile.
