La Gratitude Cottages

This affordable accommodation compares to the best of the best.

Affordable Modern Cottages

With the constant rise in the cost of living, one might feel that retirement is nearly impossible. Especially if you take a big part of your monthly expenses, like accommodation into consideration. You may wonder how much more your expenses will be with added care? The answer is not much.

Our modern Cottages come with a host of care services and compete well with normal townhouse rental costs in other local residential areas. When it comes to comfort and luxury our selection of modern cottages easily compares to the best of the best in the Newcastle Area. Is this the right option for you? We also have Flats and a Frail Care Facility for those requiring more assistance.

The Cottages are available with many options. Follow the link below, if you are interested and want to find out more or start an application.

What Makes These Cottages Special

Living your senior years in these cottages is effectively being part of a close-knit community. Enjoy the benefits of living in one of our twenty-eight (28) adjoining units and sixteen (16) newly renovated, state of the art townhouse calibre units.

These modern cottages are fitted with marble kitchen tops, a built-in oven and wall to ceiling cupboards. This is open-plan living at its best. In addition to the creature comforts inside, you are also surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens and other outside areas. 

Location is Key

Going about your daily routine is a breeze with Newcastle Mall and the Newcastle Town Centre in close proximity. These modern cottages place the Sick Bay and Frail Care Facility on your doorstep. 

The Newcastle Mediclinic is located closer than 200 metres away from the cottages.  So are the private and provincial hospitals in close proximity. With all of that said, it should become evident that the location is perfectly located to put your medical concerns to rest.

Luxury Cottage

Live Without Security Concerns

We have been working closely with the professional Ithemba Security company for a long time. Nothing is more comforting than knowing your home is protected 24/7, all hours of every day. 

All the entrances are permanently guarded around the clock with strict access control. Additional security features extend into each apartment to make up the panic button system and evening tagging system.

Stay Socially Active
