Here’s your chance for you and a friend to test-drive retirement village life and see for yourself why so many of our residents compare life at a Metlifecare village to “being on a permanent holiday”.

Enter the draw now to win one of three all-expenses paid weekends in an apartment or villa, at one of three premium retirement villages, where you’ll be royally treated to the best of village life.

From the moment we take your bags at reception on your arrival, you’ll feel the holiday mood wash over you. From Friday night Happy hour all the way to Sunday morning’s delicious home-made breakfast, you’ll enjoy all that village life has to offer without parting with a cent! And don’t worry about cooking; you’ll be dining on us.

You’ll enjoy access to all the village facilities, like the crystal clear waters of the pool, and the onsite gym. You’ll also get the chance to join in on a few of the many resident run activities – from exercise and craft groups to mah-jong and wood working.

Think of it as your personal sampler box of retirement village life, a true try before you buy opportunity for you and your family!



Soaring impressively from its vantage point in Unsworth Heights with picture-perfect villas that greet you at the gate, Greenwich Gardens is a magnificent premium retirement village.
