Workforce and holiday / event accommodation
SMALL and large investors, from near and far, are flocking to the Coorong region with the opening of The Bend Motorsport Park.
With the need for workforce and holiday/event accommodation growing, investors Rick and Ngaire Newlyn of Adelaide, completed the refurbishment of their first property, Villa Serra, at Wellington East, over 12 months ago.
This stylish and contemporary waterfront property has been very popular with holiday makers and is performing strongly. Rick and Ngaire made the decision to also offer Villa Serra as workforce accommodation, which keeps the property well occupied, year round.
Ngaire Newlyn, a consultant to the Maritime Industry, specialising in floating accommodation, is particularly excited about prospects in the Coorong region of South Australia.
“The Coorong is an exceptionally unique part of the world, so we’ve refurbished Villa Serra to accommodate the expanding short term holiday traffic into the region,” said Mrs Newlyn. “We’re also excited about the opening of The Bend Motorsport Park, a development of this significance is a once in a lifetime opportunity – we weren’t going to let this slip us by. We were very excited that Villa Serra was home to one of the race teams during the inaugural Supercars event.”
Business aside, Mrs Newlyn has really enjoyed the creative side of preparing and furnishing the property.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed preparing Villa Serra for our guests and it’s exceeded all our expectations,” said Mrs Newlyn. “I’m genuinely proud of what we’ve created, everything went to plan – except for negotiating the delivery of furnishings to Wellington, that was somewhat of a challenge.”
As well as looking forward to capitalising on the growth in the region, Mrs Newlyn has also taken great pleasure in working with local tradespeople and neighbours alike.
“I’ve found Coorong people are honest, hard working folk, who are willing to help anytime – they’re also very proud of their region and so they should be.”
Located on the water at the beautiful Wellington Marina, Villa Serra is a modern, high end holiday home that comfortably sleeps six adults.
Villa Serra has an open plan fully equipped kitchen, dining and living area with fantastic water views.
There are three double bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a second lounge area with a separate coffee/bar facility – laundry amenities and a BBQ are also provided.
A large deck and outside fire pit mean that while watching the sunset over the beautiful canal views, you can enjoy a night of making memories, while entertaining outdoors.
