Goodbye Pine Lake Marina – Popular holiday resort to be converted into retirement village

Initially it was considered an early April Fools Joke, but not so. Social Media users are up in arms after the announcement this week that the popular holiday resort Pine Lake Marina near Sedgefield will be converted into a lifestyle estate and retirement village, starting May 2023.

After the official announcement on Facebook, many expressed their dismay.

This is devastating news for us. It was a real family get together resort”

Another wrote:

That is so sad, such a beautiful holiday resort. Not a good idea at all”

Another user wrote:

This is the saddest thing. Entire family memories and traditions destroyed for old rich people. I cannot believe this. Entirely heartbreaking”

Another social media user wrote:

What are old people gonna do there anyway?? I mean they not gonna use the paddle boats and all those beautiful pools….They’ll probably just sit on their balcony and look at the lake. This is so sad”

There was some positive feedback too:

Awesome news, now my grandchildren can visit me and enjoy what my children used to enjoy. I’m interested!!!”

Pine Lake responded to the backlash: “We understand that many of you have fond memories of the resort, but we hope you’ll see this change as an opportunity for even more wonderful experiences. For those of you who have been dreaming of making Pine Lake Marina your permanent home, this is your chance! We’ll be releasing more information on pricing and structure soon, so stay tuned”.

Those who wish to go for one last holiday before the resort closes to the public in May 2023 will have to book now. Bookings can be made by calling 0443492200 or by sending an email to [email protected]

“We’re so grateful for all of your support over the years, and we hope to see as many of you as possible in the next few months before the big transformation begins”.
