Spring has sprung, and with it comes the promise of new life, new beginnings and fresh starts; however, after a successful year, with near full occupancy of our 65 villas and apartments, we are not sitting back and smelling the abundant roses, springing to life in the village.

The completion of the refurbishment upstairs in the community centre earlier in the year provides for a craft room, exercise room, and a beautifully decorated billiard room, furnished with cigar-leather sofas and plush chairs. 

A large, raised vegie garden, installed at the request of several green-fingered residents, has proved highly successful, with a variety of produce making its way into more than a few villa kitchens. The home-grown vegies are complimented by the various fruit trees in the orchard.

Next on the agenda is a several months’ long process that involves stripping and replacing all the cladding from the villas, removing dated architraves and, of course, fully repainting the exteriors of the units and community centre. It’s important the village keeps up to date, and this face-lift will give the village a fresh, modern look. The work has already started on this ambitious project, and everyone is excited to see the end result.

Creating a strong sense of community is a priority at Maryville Courts, as well as fostering a strong rapport between management and the residents. Manager, Suzanne, meets with residents once a month to discuss what activities they choose to have added to their fixed calendar of events, whether it be a speaker, a pianist, or a barbecue, to name but a few.  

Maryville’s inner-city location has proved a strong selling point, affording residents the convenience of city living without the price tag, so, if you are over 65, thinking of downsizing in your retirement, and looking for affordability, convenience, and a sense of community, Maryville Courts might just be the place for you.
