New Home Test Drive Reviews

See what our guests had to say about giving their potential new home the overnight test.


Holly Dec 2018

“Loved our time in The Village. We had been on the fence for a while about buying a block of land to build our dream home. Spending two nights at The Village really helped our decision. It was fantastic to get a feel for the area and the neighbourhood. It also helped us decide what size block we may want. There were bicycles provided and we used them to ride down to our dream block at different times of the day. This allowed us to get a feel for sun and wind directions, all important when building a home. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone thinking about building in The Village.”

“Test driving a house is a new concept for me, but it was great to experience this new home in a new residential development to see if the location is somewhere we would like to be based. Key pickup was straightforward, and it was lovey to see my favourite chocolate bikkies on the bench (melted already, such was the heat!). The house cooled down quickly and was an amazing respite from the above-average heat of the whole weekend. Everything we needed was there, and we settled in quickly and easily. Comfy beds, everything worked, and it was a lovely little house. We were sad to leave it. I was especially impressed with the community development initiatives, and the commitment to create a bond with those who purchase. I would highly recommend a test-drive if you are looking to purchase in this development.”

“This is an amazing opportunity to really “test drive” The Village. I took advantage of the available bikes to ride through the well-maintained parks and pathways, allowing me to get a feel for the area outside of the confines of my car! I cycled down to visit the block I plan to purchase, viewing it at different times of the day to get a sense of the breeze and sunlight as well as any potential neighbourhood noise. The test drive house is in pristine condition and brilliantly styled that you feel at home as soon as you enter. The kitchen is well equipped, with the necessary staples included within the pantry. Best of all, the master bedroom boasted a queen bed that was comfortable, allowing me to sleep well on my decision to purchase in the village!”

“A great place with lots of nature space, parks, mature trees, river walk ways. The neighbourhood is friendly. Close to the city – extremely accessible in all directions to everything Townsville has to offer!”

“This house is an optimum family home that lets you experience what life is like at The Village. Only a quick drive away from the city, and close to the Precinct and Fairfield Central. Staying at this home over the weekend definitely made me more sure about my decision to build a home at The Village!”

“Test Driving the home was a great experience for both my partner and I. Having this experience allowed us to decide what size block and house is perfect for us. It helped us fall in love with The Village and allowed us to get the feel of living in The Village. It also allowed us to experience the day to day life of being a local in the village.”

“A beautiful location, with decor so expertly curated you fall in love with it before anything else, topped off with wonderful and informative staff (thanks, Rachel!) Such an excellent choice for anyone looking to invest in a first home. Thanks so much for having us!”

“It was a great experience to ‘Test Drive’ a house. The house was decorated very nicely with high quality finishing and has everything you need to stay. Out 2 little ones also enjoyed it; as quoted by my 4yr old: ‘the best thing in the house was playing and sleeping’. The Village has a great feel to it and the parks/play areas were great for both parents and kids.”
