Welcome to a new and fulfilling lifestyle
“Welcome to our site. If you are over 55 and considering a move to one of our villages, or you are perhaps looking on behalf of your parents, I hope you find our website to be a good introduction to the fulfilling lifestyle people enjoy at any one of our Arcadia Waters villages.
I first conceived the idea of developing a new kind of retirement village back in 1999 when I was searching for quality retirement accommodation for my own parents.
Sadly I concluded that the majority of retirement villages we looked at appeared to lack a sense of community or offer any real stimulation for their residents. That’s when I decided to build our first Arcadia Waters village at Maddington.
I chose to name the villages Arcadia Waters after I read about a mountainous and picturesque district of ancient Greece known as ‘Arcadia’. Apparently it was a place where its people proverbially lived a very peaceful and harmonious life, so it seemed to me to be a very appropriate name, one that also reflected our company ethos to:
“Provide high quality and affordable accommodation complemented by premium facilities and a management style that promotes a vibrant, secure and friendly community.”
Construction of what was the first Arcadia Waters village began in 2001 on the Canning River in Maddington and was completed in October 2005. The popularity of this award winning village fuelled our development of two more Arcadia Communities, one in Geraldton the other in Port Denison. Since then, Lady Brand Lifestyle Village in Mandurah, the prestigious Beaumont in Swanbourne and recently Graigview Grove in Bicton have also become Arcadia Communities.
It is rewarding for me to be told quite regularly by many Arcadia Communities residents that they feel a strong sense of companionship and belonging and that the meaning behind the original Arcadia name, epitomises the lifestyle that they all enjoy today.
The Arcadia Group is a long-standing and accredited member of the Property Council of Australia - Retirement Living, Australia’s peak body for the retirement industry.
