Whilst I am not sure where it originated or for that matter, how long ago it originated, I am aware of the saying, “You build it and they will come,” and on a recent Saturday morning in Bongaree, I personally saw a demonstration of just how accurate that old saying is when large numbers of potential buyers flocked to the new Solana Lifestyle Resort as it was opened for inspection.

Situated at 19 Bongaree Avenue, the resort is a development by Stockwell, a privately owned Queensland based company with a sixty-five-year history in property development. Founded in the 1950’s by Bill and Necia Stockwell, the company is now operated by Bill and Necia’s son Mark and their son-in-law Mike who between them have been responsible for the company’s continued growth since taking the reins in 1992.

Spacious open plan living was one impressive feature

Stockwell is currently developing a number of residential, retail and commercial properties throughout South East Queensland and the Bribie Island project is a wonderful example of their dedication to providing a comfortable, modern and affordable living to those who are looking to downsize. Solana offers low maintenance two and three bedroom homes and a choice of more than twelve floorplans.

about his ideas for the resort

The resort is managed by Stockwell Living who currently have over six hundred properties in their portfolio and will be responsible for maintaining the gardens around the resort as well as at the front of each home and the general upkeep of resort facilities. When completed, Solana Lifestyle Resort will offer residents the use of an extensive range of facilities which include a games room, bowling greens, cinema, swimming pools and craft room.

‘When designing Solana, we wanted to create a feeling of space and this has resulted in our streets being wider, our homes setback deeper and plenty of pocket parks,’said Managing Director Mark Stockwell. ‘In addition to all that, we have over six hectares of conservation area and lakes which add to the overall natural beauty of the resort. Moving to a home at Solana will benefit those still working or retired who wish to spend less time and money on maintaining a large home and more time doing what they enjoy,’ he added.

Bedrooms all have a fresh, airy feel about them

I took the time to inspect the resort on the day and I have to admit that what I saw was impressive. I also need to say that a twenty-minute conversation with Mark Stockwell has convinced me that this is a man who really does care about the quality that his company is able to provide. I would suggest that if anyone is at all interested in what Solana has to offer, they take the opportunity to visit the resort for a look around.
