Downsize to affordable coastal living

Perfectly positioned at the gateway to the South West, Ocean Star Independent Living brings retirees and downsizers a relaxed, easy-going lifestyle right next to Bunbury’s famous coastal strip. Freshly refurbished villas are now available in the village where residents are enjoying the advantages of a friendly community located close to the beach and all the city’s attractions, Property Services Executive Manager Andrew Davidson explains.

“The opportunities at the village are not to be missed – you can choose a very competitive lease for life or rental option and move in knowing you are joining a quality village with many benefits and friendly neighbours,” he said.

“Ocean Star Village operator Catholic Homes is proud to offer quality independent living in the South West and residents can be assured of our strong track record in accommodation and services for over 55s.”

Six comfortable two-bedroom villas are available at Ocean Star. Priced from $240,000 all villas have been refurbished and are available right now under a lease for life arrangement. A capital share agreement also means that when you move out, you may receive an agreed part of the property’s increase in value.

For those seeking more flexibility, a further three villas in a two-bedroom configuration are offered as very attractive fortnightly rentals.
Each unit features generous open plan living and dining areas, built-in robes to bedrooms, a combined laundry and bathroom and private courtyard.

“Residents enjoy the fantastic community spirit at Ocean Star, and often enjoy the shared facilities within the larger site. Everyone loves our village bus service that regularly goes into town for shopping and other outings as well as very popular country trips that take in centres such as Albany, Esperance and Kalgoorlie.”
Catholic Homes has invested in Ocean Star, where onsite maintenance staff take care of gardens and upkeep while you enjoy your own time. The operator has created a new covered outdoor entertainment area perfect for early evening sunset barbeques and get-togethers.

A big drawcard for the village is its coastal location: your new address on Ocean Drive is directly opposite the beach, perfect for any outdoors activity you choose. Being so close to the residential service, you can take advantage of a wide range of additional amenities on offer. These benefits include:

Hairdressing, podiatry, physiotherapy and occupational therapy
A hot meal ordering service daily, prepared by our onsite chef
Religious services at the chapel
A safe and secure environment with a security service
A dedicated Coordinator available to answer your questions
Being only 1.5 kilometres from Bunbury City Centre, Ocean Star is also conveniently located close to a local bowls club, shops, bus services, medical facilities and city amenities.
