All the apartments are available on life-long tenancies, so people can remain in the apartments for life if they choose and service and maintenance charges are included in the price. Most developments have communal gardens, laundry facilities, guest rooms, a live-in house manager on site, a 24 hour help line for each tenant and regular social activities organised.
Peter Girling, Chairman of Girlings Retirement Options said, “We see huge demand each year from tenants who want to relocate to coastal areas across the UK where the weather is slightly warmer, the air feels fresher, the scenery is un-spoilt and the pace of life is slower. For the first time, we are offering tenants the chance to move to a seaside location of their choice – we think it will be a popular promotion.”
John and Janet Manning are a couple who finally fulfilled their dream of retiring by the sea when they moved into one bedroom apartment in Halebrose Court in Bournemouth through Girlings in January. They are now reaping the benefits of coastal living. Janet says, “We are keen walkers and we are spoilt for choice in this beautiful location in terms. We have great walks, beaches and wonderful views on our doorstep. We love the fresh air and we spend most days out on the beach – my husband even starts the day reading the newspaper on the beach it has become part of his routine. Living here feels like a very healthy way to enjoy retirement.”
