Home is where the heart is

Alanna and michael

For the recently engaged couple, Allana and Michael, the shift into a new complex in Deception Bay has been a great move.

Michael says “It’s quiet, peaceful and we love it. You couldn’t ask for better.” 

The move to their new home was not without its bumps along the way. Allana and Michael moved into the complex in July and during that time had some teething problems with appliances in the unit, the stress of planning their engagement party and also a stint in hospital after becoming unwell.

With the support of staff from the local Moreton Bay Housing Service Centre, Allana and Michael were able to fix their issues in their unit.

“We had an officer follow up on the issues and fix them. We had a good experience”, Allana said.

With those problems now behind them, Allana and Michael are focusing on creating happy memories in their new home.

“We go to local parks and the beachfront all the time and we recently celebrated our engagement and a birthday at a local park with friends and family”, Allana said.

Allana has lived in the Deception Bay community all her life and could not imagine living anywhere else.

“This area has easy access to amenities and that’s why we like living here. I know so many people in this community too and we like that”, she says.

Michael jokes, “We can’t go down the street without Allana running into someone she knows! We see so many people Allana knows every time we go anywhere in Deception Bay.”

With strong ties to the community and bright plans for their future, Allana and Michael’s new home has allowed them to thrive, achieve and celebrate their important milestones.

“We’re happy, we love it here”, they both say.
