The story of Lifestyle Communities®

For 21 years, Lifestyle Communities® has lived and breathed the wants and needs of the downsizer homeowner; consistently refining our approach, communities, and homes to not only meet your needs – but exceed them!

Our Purpose

We’re champions for facilitating a bigger, more enhanced life for our homeowners. A cohort of like-minded retired, semi-retired and working downsizers who belong to a generation that’s seen more change than any before; and possibly any to come.

We build communities because our homeowners have worked hard for what they have and they deserve affordable, beautifully-designed and low maintenance homes in concert with best-in-class amenities. We create communities because our homeowners haven’t given up on returning to a time when they built strong communities around their own homes. We nurture the homeowners within our communities because they seek a space that’s truly their own, that strikes the perfect balance between connection and privacy; independence and activity.

Like us, our homeowners rail against an earnestly bland existence or disappearing into a sea of sameness; the one-size-fits all approach that places limitations on what’s possible. Which is why we actively listen to them; to their hopes for now and their dreams for the future, so the next time they ask, “what’s next?” we’ve already been busy reimagining.

But, most of all, we champion bigger, more enhanced lives for our homeowners because we know that reducing their property footprint takes a giant leap of faith. This is why we believe it’s a privilege to walk alongside them as they elevate the next phase of their lives.

Like us, we believe they’re just getting started.

After all, they’re the generation of change. And they’re not done yet.

Our Mission

We build beautiful, downsizer-centric homes across Melbourne, Geelong, the Bellarine & Mornington Peninsulas and Regional Victoria, complemented by stunning facilities that engender connectivity and wellbeing.

We believe it’s a privilege to walk alongside the downsizer and elevate the next phase of their lives, which is why we maintain a laser-like focus on best practice outcomes for our people and our product. This is underpinned by all the benefits you’d expect to find at an ASX200-listed company with over 25 communities (and then some).

These hallmarks of a publicly listed company are complemented by our insatiable desire to do things differently. If we’re not serving up experiences that deliver a smile and a wink, with a side serving of knowing nod and inspiration, we believe we’re not doing our job.

Our Values

Our guiding principle has always been to create a ‘business for purpose’ rather than a ‘purpose for business’. As a result, we created Lifestyle Communities® with a clear focus to be socially, morally and ethically responsible in all ways.

We honour this by creating outstanding quality communities with luxury facilities at an affordable price with a sustainable weekly fee.

We’re passionate about putting our homeowners and their needs first. As a result of this commitment, our surveys show that 95% of our homeowners are prepared to recommend Lifestyle Communities® to friends and family. Also, 52% of all our new home sales are as a result of referral by satisfied existing homeowners.

Our team

Our team is committed to continually enhancing and enriching the lives of our homeowners. They never waver in the belief that honesty, trust and transparency are integral to our culture and that these values underpin the sense of community our homeowners enjoy.

As a fun-loving bunch, we don’t always take ourselves seriously, but we are serious about delivering exceptional communities, facilities and experiences.

At Lifestyle Communities®, we love what we do, and we’re passionate about doing it! We work hard to create communities that redefine the downsizing lifestyle, and we hope you’ll fall in love with our communities as much as we have.
