Become an owner at Lakeside Villas Resort

Timeshare ownership at Lakeside Villas is in perpetuity, that is 999 years. You have the choice of using the apartment yourself, renting it, or allowing friends or family to use. For a once only payment, and an annual maintenance levy, you can purchase a week (or multiples thereof) in this fine resort from existing owners who wish to resell their units:

Fixed Weeks or Floating Weeks

Fixed Time:  Covering the Christmas, January holiday period. A purchaser selects and buys a specific unit and week. You are then required to use this exact unit and week each year at the resort; it also may be used for exchange.

Floating Time:  A purchaser buying time other than fixed time has the advantage of being able to book an annual holiday at any time between February and mid-December each year. School holidays and peak times such as Easter and Labour Weekend are always in high demand so a ballot is held to determine occupancy when the demand exceeds available units. You can request any week so long as it falls within the floating time band. You may also request any unit number of the type you have purchased.

Apartment Types

You have the opportunity of choosing the apartment type that best suits you and your family’s needs. We have the following apartments currently listed for resale – the prices quoted are not negotiable and are subject to change without notice. A competitive conveyancing service is also offered through the resort office.

Apartment Type Number of people including infants Price (floating weeks) Price (fixed weeks)

2 Bedroom Up to 7 from $1,975 POA

Timeshare ownership at The Lakeside Villas entitles you to registered rights to as many weeks as you may wish to purchase. You receive a standard real estate title which you may sell, mortgage, transfer or gift; in effect this is a one/fifty first share in Unit Plan DPS36074.
