Meet some of the residents in our communities and hear first-hand what they love about them.
"It’s just great to walk in that door and look at this fantastic view, in an apartment that is exactly how we wanted an apartment to be".
The Haven Penthouse Collection saw over 20 purchasers individually design their own apartment, working with the Marquee Development team & MMO Interiors to customise floor plans and personalise fixtures & finishes.
Providing purchaser’s an opportunity to design a bespoke apartment to suit their individual needs resulted in many happy owners.
“I love it because I can go downstairs, hop on the city glider and go into the city – I love shopping in the city. I can just go across the road and have a coffee, with Woolworths just there so I don’t need to take the car – that’s probably one of the best things.”
“The more I live here, the more I appreciate the design of our unit, there is a park just across the road so I can take my grandkids to the park when they visit.” Assunta & Frank V
“Well, I think first and foremost it’s the location, it’s so handy we’re 100 metres away from two shopping centres, there are a thousand coffee shops and restaurants, or you can walk up to James Street all within 5-10 minutes – it just doesn’t get any better.” Nick & Trish V
“Coming home to the apartment and the view, it’s just great to walk in that door and look at this fantastic view in an apartment that is exactly how we wanted an apartment to be. I love sitting here and looking out across the river, sometimes it’s just relaxing watching those city cats gliding up and down the river.” Tim & Jenny M
"When I walked into the display room I knew it, that this is the house that I wanted to live in."
As first home buyers, Rika & Aravind were very proud that they were able to purchase a brand-new apartment on Chevron Island. The couple were drawn to the location, they love the thought being central to shops, cafes & restaurants but also having the Nerang River & a patrolled beach within easy walking distance.
“The best thing about Catalina is the location, which is close to the city and I love the local communities all around as well.”
Rika & Aravind were amazed by the value on offer at The Catalina. Not only were they purchasing a brand-new home with high-end appliances, luxury finishes, and stunning views, they also were excited by the resident’s only amenity they’d be able to enjoy with their family & friends.
“I really like the open rooftop dining area… I’m really looking forward to having my first dinner with my family & friends.”
“The Catalina is an all-in-one destination, we’ve got a pool, gym, movie theatre, and private dining room.”
"The things that appealed to me in The Catalina, firstly was the very generous space, incredible attention to detail, and on top of that you’ve got these superlative views of the Nerang River and city skyline."
Tony had been looking for the perfect apartment on the Gold Coast for over four years, once he saw The Catalina with its central location, spacious floor plans, and five-star resident’s amenities, he knew he had found it.
Tony opted for a south-west facing, 3-bedroom apartment halfway up the building with an abundance of space, sweeping river views & a feature dry-bar.
“The thing that appealed to me about the Type 9 apartment in The Catalina, firstly, was the very generous space, incredible attention to detail, and on top of that you’ve got these superlative views of the Nerang River and city skyline thanks to the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that wrap around the apartment.”
As a downsizer, Tony was accustomed to having plenty of space to relax, unwind and exercise, he didn’t like the idea of giving up his hobbies to move into an apartment. Tony fell in love with The Catalina for the abundance of resident’s amenities, especially the pool and sauna, he was excited that he could enjoy apartment living without giving the things he loved.
“The amenities that appeal to me in The Catalina, certainly first and foremost are the lap pool and sauna. I am very much someone who uses those facilities now and I’d hate to have to give them up if I moved to an apartment building without them.”
Buying an apartment off the plan was beneficial for Tony, as it allowed him the time to sell his current home before finalising his purchase at The Catalina. He found purchasing off the plan a seamless process and found comfort in being able to see the high-end finishes in a recently completed building nearby.
“Marquee had just opened their Stanhill building, which gave me the confidence to purchase as I could see great design and the high-quality finishes they deliver.”
"We're very excited to live at Cannes Waterfront, this is where we have always dreamed of living."
Karen & David have purchased their dream home in Cannes Waterfront Living to enjoy the best of both worlds on the Gold Coast – the stunning Nerang River views & close proximity to the beach.
Cannes Waterfront’s absolute river frontage was a major drawcard for the couple, after looking around at different locations they were always concerned about their views being built-out overtime.
“Cannes was so appealing because it’s positioned right on the river, it’s on a point position, looking up and down the river.”
“Views, unobstructed views either way you look – it just suited our lifestyle and where we want to be.”
Karen & David purchased a 2 bedroom + multi-purpose room on Level 14, the perfect amount of space as a couple with plenty of room to host visiting family & friends from the UK.
“We love the fact that it’s owner occupiers, because it’s going to be a little bit quieter than having holidaymakers, which is good for us.”
Surprised and impressed by the level of resident’s only amenity at Cannes, Karen & David knew they were getting great value with their purchase.
“The amenities here are fantastic, with a swimming pool, billiards room, and rooftop deck – which the views from there will be unbelievable.”
“The Body Corporate is pretty good, even compared to where we are now, it’s cheaper, so we can’t complain at that.”
“Life on the Gold Coast is everything we want it to be, it’s relaxed yet busy. With some of the best beaches in the world, you’re always happier when you come back to the Gold Coast.”
