SE­CU­RITY AT HOME AND AWAY

The Courier-Mail - Home - - SMART STORAGE - BELINDA CHILTON

This cou­ple love to travel in their mo­tor home and also love that they have ded­i­cated stor­age for their road trip­per at their re­tire­ment vil­lage.

Bill and Gitta Malkin have trav­elled ex­ten­sively through Aus­tralia in their mo­tor home, free camp­ing where they can, see­ing the sights and vis­it­ing winer­ies.

They re­cently re­turned to Opal by Liv­ing Gems af­ter a three-month, fam­ily-fo­cused trip to Ade­laide, which fol­lowed a six-month ad­ven­ture in West­ern Aus­tralia where they saw land­marks such as Wave Rock and visited sev­eral of that state’s fine winer­ies.

It is a pas­sion for Mr Malkin, who has 180 bot­tles of red wine at his home at Opal by Liv­ing Gems, and he has an ex­ten­sive knowl­edge of Aus­tralia’s best winer­ies.

“We have so many high-qual­ity grow­ing ar­eas in Aus­tralia such as Mar­garet River, Swan Val­ley, Hunter Val­ley and the Barossa Val­ley,” Mr Malkin said.

While at home, the Malkins can leave their mo­tor home stored at Opal by Liv­ing Gems’ ded­i­cated stor­age area. “In fact, that was one of the rea­sons that we de­cided upon Opal by Liv­ing Gems,” Mr Malkin said. “It was ac­tu­ally a de­cid­ing fac­tor, be­cause we needed stor­age for our mo­tor home.”

Opal by Liv­ing Gems has 27 al­lo­cated spa­ces in a fenced area that is well watched by man­age­ment and fel­low res­i­dents.

“With­out doubt, it gives us peace of mind when we go away with­out the mo­tor home.”

Opal by Liv­ing Gems oc­cu­pies 18 land­scaped hectares in Lo­gan Vil­lage, a for­mer ru­ral hub that is now at the heart of Bris­bane’s re­gional growth cor­ri­dor.

This re­sort links with al­most nine hectares of forested park­land with fish­ing plat­forms on the banks of Lo­gan River. A gated en­try, a wide, tree-lined boule­vard and land­scaped streets frame a range of in­ter­na­tional award­win­ning two and three bed­room free­stand­ing and du­plex homes. The so­cial cen­tre is the coun­try club, which has a bar and lounge, din­ing ar­eas, a grand ball­room with a the­atre stage and a lux­u­ri­ous cinema.

Lov­ing life at Opal by Liv­ing Gems are Bill and Gitta Malkin who know their home is safe and se­cure while they travel the coun­try.
