Saik makes the right move
LOCAL accountant Saik Kee says that after 40 years in her original home in Willetton, she has certainly made the right move to a whole new lifestyle next door at Rossmoyne Waters Australis Apartments.
She said the Rossmoyne Waters management team’s clearly demonstrated altruism made her decision easier.
“The move to an apartment lifestyle was a very considered one for me,” she said.
“As an accountant I believe strongly in doing your research, understanding the financial implications on all decisions, asking lots of questions and comparing options.
“When I met Australis village manager Daniel, I could immediately see theirs was a very different approach to that of other retirement villages I’d investigated.
“They just seemed fair and were absolutely clear in describing the financial arrangements, including all entry, management and exit fees, which were very reasonable.
“The price was right for me given the current and foreseeable market conditions.
“But what struck me most was the genuine altruism and sense of care at the heart of what was essentially a commercial transaction.”
Saik came to Australia as a student in the 1970s, qualified as a CPA and went on to work in a public practice and later in Perth’s corporate sector.
“It took courage to move on from the only home I’d ever owned in Australia,” she said.
“Having raised my family there, a great deal of sentiment was attached to it.
“But the kids had grown and gone and I decided this is my time, time to do something for myself.
“I wanted to remain in the suburbs and I love this area but I also knew there was more to life than looking after an enormous garden every weekend.
“A whole new way of life, a new chapter is for me with an apartment lifestyle at Rossmoyne Waters.
“It’s a superb location with easy access to public transport, close proximity to shops and Garden City is not that far away.
“Here I’m in a safe and secure environment in a leafy suburb close to the river and it is a beautiful building with new concepts and modern facilities.
“I use the gym regularly and I had a go at lawn bowling and mini golf; honestly you don’t need to go anywhere, you can enjoy the resort lifestyle here every day.
“The lobby is gorgeous with its architectural fireplace where you can entertain visiting friends over coffee during winter.
“The apartments are very open, spacious and naturally well lit, so the atmosphere provided is lovely and welcoming.
“From my balcony I have stunning views of the city and Mt Henry Bridge; in fact that view has encouraged a few of my friends to subtly invite themselves over for the 2020 Australia Day Skyworks.
“The place is great for young and old alike; it is wonderful to see grandparents and grandchildren together.
“There is a real sense of family and community; I am proud to be living here.”
Rossmoyne Waters chief executive Gary Blagden
said more than half of Stage One of Australis was now called home by happy new residents and interest in the remaining 29 twoand three-bedroom apartments from $475,000 to $845,000 was heightening.
“We’re encouraging people to reach out to our village manager Daniel Gallop now and experience the complex’s apartments and amenities first-hand,” Gary said.
“All apartments are lifelong lease with three choices of Deferred Management Fee geared to suit individual circumstances.
“We’re crafting a harmonious, positive community here and we’re doing it in style”.
