The Villas – this is home

Finlandia Villas is an exclusive living opportunity for people aged 65 years and above.

The freedom that comes with retirement is something that we all look forward to, and having a home in which we can entertain and relax is essential. Our 23 Finlandia Villas have been designed to give you the lifestyle for which you’ve worked  so hard.

Set on a 1.4-hectare block on our Thornlands site, our villas bring together modern appliances, contemporary architecture and everything else you would expect of home. They are comfortable, practical and easy to maintain. With two spacious bedrooms, a storage friendly kitchen and a wheel-chair accessible bathroom, our units are designed for active retirees who enjoy easy living. Finlandia Villas is a gated community with security access.

Active Living

Living in an active and social community is vital to ageing well. With the freedom to come and go as you please, you can enjoy the local community events and facilities. On-site you can enjoy the indoor swimming pool, sauna and a community barbeque perfect for entertaining with friends and family. Just next door is the Finlandia Care and Cultural Hub with café, fully equipped gymnasium, library, computers, allied health consultation rooms, and hairdresser.

Residents of the Villas are also welcome to use the facilities of the neighbouring Finncare Retirement Village, join in their many activities and book seats on the Finncare mini bus on its regular outings to local shopping centres.
