Carey Bay Retirement Village consists of 2 bedroom villas, 31 villas in total all with individual carports or garages, and a community room. A shopping bus is provided on a weekly basis and residents are able to organise their own activities such as luncheons, bus trips, games and many other social activities. Retirement Village residents hold regular meetings to discuss relevant topics.
Our villages are a place to relax, where the yard work and maintenance is done for you. They offer the opportunity to socialise and form new friendships with people just like you, you can be as involved as you want to be, or not at all.

Deciding to move into a retirement village is a major step. It is not only a lifestyle choice but an important financial decision. Our Customer Support Team are here to help you with each step in this process. After your initial enquiry, we will send our Information and Application pack. Once completed and returned, your details will be included on our Wait List for the Village(s) of your choice. We will keep in contact as units become available. There is no cost or obligation to stay on this Wait List.
The General Inquiry Document is required to be provided within 14 days of making an enquiry. This document will include general information about the Village including the types of dwellings, services and facilities available and costs involved.
When you have decided on the Village that you would like to secure a unit, we will provide the Disclosure Statement. This Statement contains more detailed information including the fees and charges specific to the unit you are interested in securing. This Statement will also be provided at least 14 days before you sign the Retirement Living Resident Occupancy Agreement.
Our Customer Support Team and Retirement Living Coordinator are here to help with any information you may need. The Department of Fair Trading is also a useful resource. They can be contacted on 133 220 or at www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au.
Waiting times can vary and we cannot guarantee the length of waiting time. In our experience, people often plan ahead and place their name on a Wait List before they are ready to move. Planning for the future can help you to feel more prepared when the time is right to downsize and enjoy the peace of mind and security that Retirement Living has to offer.
We will invite you to inspect the unit which is available. We will provide you with the Disclosure Statement and explain all information, including costs, regarding the unit being offered to you.
If you wish to accept our offer, we require a deposit that represents 10% of the full Ingoing Contribution that will be payable. This 10% deposit will hold your unit for a 3 month period. If you are unable to sell your home within this period of time, we can consider an extension to this 3 month period, if both parties agree. If you decide not to proceed with moving into this unit, the deposit will be fully refunded.
Unfortunately, pets are not permitted in our Retirement Living units and villages.
You are welcome to have daily visitors and short stay guests at any time. We consider a short stay guest may stay overnight for a period not exceeding two weeks at a time, and no more than four weeks over a 12 month period.
Residents are welcome to tend to a garden area. However, please note that some conditions and restrictions may apply in gardens and outdoor spaces that are communal areas.
