"I have recently retired and felt the need to look into my options in regards to retirement living. My needs were quite specific. I needed somewhere that offered a quality lifestyle, a friendly atmosphere and above all value for money. Having spent most of my life in the city and having a small home to sell, I looked at villages in my surrounding area. Given the tight real estate market I had fewer funds to spend than I initially anticipated and found it difficult to find quality accommodation with a lifestyle and price to match. I decided to look at other options in regards to location and it was there I found Waterford Estate. What a breath of fresh air – literally! This village ticked all of my boxes.


Beautiful homes and surroundings, a wonderful and vibrant resident’s community and great value for money. I had the choice of pre-loved homes or I could invest in a newly built home and choose my own décor. I found the staff at Waterford so helpful and they guided me along the way with all of the decisions that need to be made. The existing residents were also very helpful and always complimentary when asked how they enjoyed their time at Waterford.


I am now the proud owner of a newly refurbished pre-loved home and can honestly say it is the best decision I could have made. I am part of a wonderful community with beautiful wetlands and river views to walk the days away with my much loved pooch. I highly recommend that you visit the friendly staff at Waterford Estate so that you too can see the value for money and wonderful lifestyle on offer, you will be pleasantly surprised!"



"The tranquility we perceive from the sight of the river, trees and birds as we sit on the patio eating our breakfast, allows us to reflect on many things, particularly the journey we took to be able to live here at Waterford Estate.


The sales and construction staff have been accessible, communicative and friendly. Always ready to address a concern or an issue we needed information about. When we were given our new house keys on settlement day we entered a sparkling, clean and well designed new home! There were even flowers there to say welcome. We were taken through the house to check any areas that may need fixing – a couple of minor things were fixed the next day.


Neighbours welcomed us eagerly and Margaret from the residents committee visited us to give us information about Murray Bridge, the village and its activities.

We are looking forward to an active, pleasant and peaceful life here at Murray Bridge, in this beautiful setting which is Waterford Estate. What a gem we found!"

"You will notice the sense of welcoming warmth as you drive into Waterford Estate. Everyone smiles and waves as you drive by and it is a pleasure to see the individual houses and immaculate gardens (secure in the knowledge the upkeep is not your responsibility!).


These were some of the things that convinced John and I to settle in Waterford. Mind you, the sparkling river just a short walk away was the icing on the cake.


Having made the decision we were ably assisted at every turn by the helpful, patient management team. They do everything possible to accommodate special needs. They will work within your time frame when it comes to selling your house or any other issues involved in moving.


Our experience has been all positive since we arrived in February. We have met some lovely people – some great characters. Perfect strangers have made us most welcome.


Never mind a great retirement estate – Waterford is just a great place to live!"

"Now that both my husband and I are in our seventies, we decided to live in an independent retirement village. After looking at various villages in Adelaide and surrounding areas we couldn’t find any to suit our needs. We then saw an advert for Waterford Estate at Murray Bridge, right on the river and decided to go and have a look.


As soon as we drove through the gates we thought what a beautiful place to live, no two houses were of the same brick or colour and the gardens were in immaculate condition. After looking through several houses and walking around the wetlands, we both knew we would like to live in the village especially when we found out that pets were allowed!


The staff and residents made us very welcome and we have now lived in Waterford for two years and enjoyed the happy village and social life and made lots of friends. The best decision we could have made. Come and join us at Waterford and experience this wonderful lifestyle for yourself."

"Words can’t express how much I have appreciated living in a Village while I was undergoing treatment. Everyone was so caring and supportive".



"We loved living in the Village and since my husband passed away I have valued the security and companionship even more. I feel safe and I’m never lonely".



"I recently retired and live an active life outside the Village but it’s always nice to come home to a community of people who understand me and know what it’s like to be at this stage of life. I join in Village activities when I’m able and it suits me. My choice, my life. Wonderful!".
