When it comes to traveling in retirement, lock-and-leave residences have never been more on trend! With recent studies showing active older adults are traveling at an escalating rate, it’s no wonder that the maintenance-free lifestyle at proposed Trinity Landing is attracting so many depositors who love to travel, like Gayle and David Ward.

“We have four grandchildren coast-to-coast,” laughs Gayle. “We just got back from visiting our son’s family in Newport Beach, California. The great thing about living at Trinity Landing is that it will make traveling so much easier!”

Maintenance-free living means lock-and-leave security

Planned to open in 2022, Trinity Landing is a proposed active retirement community on the Intracoastal Waterway in Wilmington, NC.  The Wards have their heart set on a villa overlooking the water—although a variety of floor plans will be available. The maintenance-free lifestyle at Trinity Landing means that residents won’t have to deal with the hassles of closing up a big home when they want to leave town. “We’re looking forward to downsizing by the water,” Gayle was happy to say.

Just think, at Trinity Landing you can lock and leave your beautiful, coastal-inspired apartment home or villa and not have to worry about arranging for lawn care and home upkeep while you’re gone. Maintenance-free living includes housekeeping and all landscape and exterior maintenance. No more worrying about “what if there’s a storm or something happens?” You can feel secure in knowing your home is being cared for by the great team at Trinity Landing. An added sense of security will come from the real sense of community that is created when neighbors become friends and keep an eye on each other’s homes whenever they’re away.
