Living well

Be an active part of things

Retirement isn’t about slowing down - but rather about doing more of the things we’ve always loved to do, right? We’ve seen first-hand the sense of pride and purpose that comes from continuing to be a part of the community. So, at Arvida we’re breaking the mould of traditional retirement living and we’re building communities that offer great ways to stay engaged.

Bethlehem Shores offers beautiful private homes, orientated to the sun and centred around common green areas to encourage residents to socialise and create true neighbourhoods. Walkways link the facilities together, meaning you'll run into others on a regular basis and keep fit and active at the same time.

The enormous Bethlehem Shores Clubhouse with café is open to all residents, their families and friends. The Clubhouse includes café, bar, cinema, library, dance floor and shared spaces for events and parties. There will also be a heated pool, gym, bowling green and outdoor barbeque area, which we know will be the fun and social heart of the village.

Whatever your passion, you’ll be able to embrace it here at Bethlehem Shores! We all dream that when we retire we’ll have the time to do more of the things we love – and to share that passion with others of all ages!
