Imagine living somewhere that has the vibe of a luxe holiday resort … every single day. Well, that dream is a reality at The Breeze in Point Lonsdale, a fabulous lifestyle retreat designed for retirees who value good company and the finer things in life.

These “finer things” are epitomised in The Breeze’s stunning Waterside Pavilion, the centre of resort life. Stylish and contemporary, it has gorgeous outlooks onto waterways that wrap around the site, and provides a vast array of activity spaces.

Equally impressive, the 170 architect-designed villas and apartments also offer a level of comfort, style and liveability that perfectly suits the coastal locale.

Waterside Pavilion
Exclusive to residents and their guests, this lovely hub has spacious lounge and dining areas, bar, library, light-filled art studio, hairdressing salon, consulting rooms and gymnasium.

There’s also an indoor heated lap pool, and an outdoor bowling green. A cinema, with tiered seating and rich blue fabrics, is the scene of many special movie nights.

Like-minded neighbours
Making new friends at The Breeze is very easy because everyone’s pretty well on the same page. There’s plenty to do – with friends, family and neighbours. Residents can get together for bike rides, a game of bowls, an exercise class, game of billiards, or art studio sessions.

Happy hours at the bar bring people together, while pottering in the edible garden or citrus grove might tempt others.There’s even a community boat, as well as a workshop currently in the works for all the tinkerers. It’s all about community and life well lived.

Villas and apartments
Homes have a modern coastal aesthetic, with luxury fixtures and finishes such as Miele appliances, timber floorboards, wool carpet, bespoke joinery and double-glazed windows.

The Breeze was launched in October 2018 by Sencia, a company that’s owned and operated retirement and aged care facilities around Australia since the 1970s.
