Are there any meals provided??

No. Residents cook for themselves. All villas are provided with a stove and microwave.



Rental Villas

How many people reside in the rental villas?

On average 30 people reside in our one or two bedroom Villas and Flats. 

Why Rental? Does Wesley Village offer  “Licence to Occupy” arrangements like some other organisations?

Wesley Village does not require ‘licence to occupy’ or ‘home purchase’ agreements. We believe that asking residents to forego 20 to 30% of their equity while not being able to share in any future capital gains is rather unfair. We prefer to offer rental options to suit your needs.

Can we bring our own furnishings / furniture?

Residents of the rental villas bring selected furniture.


Gardens and grounds

 Are there outdoor areas?

There are plentiful outside seating options throughout our extensive gardens. There are also raised vegetable gardens for those who enjoy gardening. An adjoining bush walk circuits the hills surrounding Wesley Village, however a reasonable standard of fitness is required.

Some villas have plumbing for washing machines, but not all. There is a shared laundry on site for residents’ use..
