Enjoying a Low Maintenance Lifestyle at Sunrise

There are many benefits to downsizing and moving to an independent lifestyle community. Enjoy resort-style amenities, live in a home that suits your needs and have the opportunity to live in one of Australia’s most sought after locations without the hefty price tag! These are just some of the reasons you will find the 250 residents calling the Sunrise Lifestyle Community home. The community boasts an array of amenities, modern home designs and access to pristine beaches in the picturesque region of Port Stephens along the coast of NSW.

Let’s take a look inside the Sunrise Lifestyle Community and see why many are downsizing to retirement-style living.

Enjoying the Amenities

Gone are the days of spending your Saturday cleaning the pool, now are the days to enjoy relaxing by the pool! Take your pick of swimming laps in one of the two pools, catch up with neighbours for a friendly game of lawn bowls, grab a racket for a hit of tennis or work up a sweat in the gymnasium.

Kicking back and relaxing is made easy with an onsite wellness centre, library and cinema. Stay social by catching up with your neighbours in the clubhouse, get creative in the crafts room, try your luck in the games room or organise a BBQ with family and friends at the outdoor BBQ areas.

Understanding the Land Lease Living Model

Homes at the Sunrise Lifestyle Community are part of the Land Lease Living model. This means residents own the dwelling and long-term lease the land on which it stands. Benefits of the Land Lease Living model include:


• No stamp duty payable


• No council rates


• No deferred management fees that can be part of moving into, or out of, a retirement village


• You may be eligible to claim Commonwealth rental assistance


The model makes it possible to access fantastic lifestyle-rich areas such as Port Stephens, without the exorbitant price tag that can come with other homes in the region.
