Frances and her dog Ruben are loving life at Parklands.

After 15 years of living in the area, Frances decided she no longer wanted to worry about home maintenance.  “I was living in a villa, so the size of my home wasn’t an issue, it was more taking care of everything. I knew a village type arrangement would be perfect for me.” 

With her son and three grandchildren close by in Port Macquarie, Frances wanted to stay in the area and knew she wanted to be in a village

She went to look at Parklands as it was in a great position and was pet friendly.  She bought her unit and moved in with her two Cavalier King Charles spaniels, Ruben and Rusty “My home sold quickly and so the entire move happened smoothly!  The process of buying into Parklands was easy, the team at Stockland were so helpful.” 

Rusty has since passed away, so these days Frances and Ruben are best mates and take good care of each other.  Frances has come to know some of the other residents living at Parklands through mutual friends.  

“I don’t get too involved with the village activities and I’m OK with that.  I am very happy walking around the village with my best mate Ruben!”
