Hear from Trevor and Merrilyn about their experience living at Salford Waters Retirement Estate.

Breathing in the cool sea breezes that drift off their absolute waterfront view, Salford Waters residents Trevor and Merrilyn couldn’t be happier in their vibrant retirement community.


The couple downsized from their family home and moved in six years ago… and life couldn’t better.


“Like many others, we were looking to downsize. We thought, there has to be more to life than cleaning a house and looking after a big property. When we saw this home and its layout, plus the gardens … and waterfront views, I said to Merrilyn, I could see us here,” Trevor said.


Relishing retirement living, Trevor and Merrilyn enjoy their fun filled days set along the sparkling shores of Victoria Point. The pair extensively researched retirement living options but couldn’t go past Salford Waters for its location, close knit community and wonderful facilities.  


The pair make the most of their waterside position, often enjoying crabbing, fishing and kayaking. They also agree that Salford Waters’ location is ideal, being close to shops and amenities, plus as a member of Redland Bay Golf Club, Trevor enjoys weekly rounds of golf with other residents and friends.


The weekly calendar is full of organised activities and outings, with residents enjoying pizza nights, bingo, bowling and line dancing.. to name a few!


Merrilyn and Trevor also love joining other residents for a Saturday morning of croquet on the front lawn, which overlooks glistening views of Moreton Bay and beyond.


Known for its vibrant, close community and the pair believe there is true comradery at the village, commenting that you make lifelong friends as a resident at Salford Waters.


They believe that if you were ever considering a sea change, Salford Waters is the perfect place to take the plunge.  


“We have been here six years… and we have never regretted it for one day,” Trevor commented.


“It has been the best move we ever could have made,” Merrilyn added.


“It’s perfect.”
