SECURITY AT HOME AND AWAY
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.
