At the award-winning Renaissance, you’ll have the time and freedom to do all the things that you enjoy.

Independent Living Communities

When you choose to live at Renaissance Living, you’ll be joining one of the most vibrant and inclusive independent living communities in Surrey Hills and surrounding areas.

We offer residents the freedom of their own home in an intimate village with other like-minded individuals. You will be close to everything you love, with almost no upkeep and a plethora of activities at your fingertips.


When you live in a Renaissance retirement living apartment, you’ll be part of an inclusive and affordable retirement community where privacy is respected, people are friendly and there is so much going on, you’ll never be lonely or short of fun things to do.

For the energetic, there’s flow yoga, exercise with Nola, walking groups through the glorious Wattle Park, and of course the pool and gym available for your use at any time.

For the more cerebral, we have Scrabble and card nights, movie nights, our perpetual jigsaw puzzle in the foyer, plus our snooker tournaments.

For the socialites, we have our regular Wednesday night dinners, Friday Happy Hour (and often fish and chips!), coffee and conversation in the library. Plus, many of our residents organise events at Renaissance for their own clubs and groups, like Rotary, Bridge clubs and sewing/craft groups which all welcome new members.

If you like more time for yourself, you can lose yourself in the workshop or the veggie/flower garden. Maybe spend some time by the fountain in the manicured courtyard or the library full of an amazing array of the most wonderful books. Or of course you can simply relax in your luxurious apartment or on your private balcony.

You can have all of that before you even walk outside our luxury retirement village to the Through Road Shops, the wider Surrey Hills community and all that has to offer… that’s the beauty of independent retirement living at Renaissance living Surrey Hills – you can do as much or as little as you like.


Renaissance Living offers possibly the best location for retirement living in Melbourne. With the No.70 tram stop at your doorstep, you’ll be within easy reach of the area’s best shopping, restaurants, cafes, cinemas, leisure, sporting and social clubs. Prefer to stay closer to home?

Renaissance is just a few steps away from the flourishing and friendly Through Road shopping strip, with its own cafes and restaurants and the convenience of a supermarket and chemist. We are also just a leisurely stroll from the natural beauty of South Surrey Park and the stunning Wattle Park. It’s hard to imagine an independent retirement living option in a more enjoyable or convenient lifestyle location.
