Choosing to live in inner-city apartments can have tiring lifestyles attached. There is always something going on!

A coastal apartment is the perfect way to make a change and finally relax, renew and refresh yourself.

Living in apartments by the seaside has many positive benefits and feelings which are incomparable to city living. Imagine waking up to the warmth of the sunrise and the sound of the birds chirping. What more could you ask for as you instantly feel calm and at peace?

If you wish to experience coastal living and still have access to the city, Kiama is your answer – being only a 90-minute drive south of Sydney.

Here are even more reasons why a coastal apartment will make all the difference as your new home.



Location is key when it comes to apartments. Choosing an apartment rather than a house may allow you to live exactly where you want to be — whether it be right across the beach or in the heart of the town centre. Ridgewaters Kiama offers 3 bedrooms and apartments that are located only a few minutes’ drive from boutiques, eateries, public transport, schools, and, let’s not forget, the beach.

A Healthier Lifestyle

Another plus of the location is the lifestyle Kiama offers. Being close to the action means everything is at your doorstep, from pubs and cafes, entertainment and sporting facilities, and parks and beaches. For those who will reside at Ridgewaters Kiama, using public spaces become extensions of their home — treating a new-found favourite café like a second living room or office, taking the dog to the local park for a game of fetch, or going for a walk or exercising on the beach.  

Change your old, bustling lifestyle into a new, healthier one as you transition to coastal apartment living by:

  • Enjoying the fresh, cool breeze of air from your apartment’s balcony. Studies have shown that fresh air can strengthen the immune system, lower obesity rates, and improve digestion, heart rate and blood pressure.
  • Absorbing Vitamin D from the sun in the morning through your skin will regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, as well as facilitate normal immune system function.
  • Doing activities varying from recreational sports such as playing beach volleyball or swimming, even taking leisurely walks or jogging by the seaside. 
  • Having your ‘me’ time. Reduce stress after a long day at work by taking a few minutes of your afternoon to relax and meditate. You can do this by listening to the crashing waves and taking deep breaths to calm yourself. It will create a calm feeling in your heart and, overall, a happier mood. 

There are all so many great reasons why apartments by the coast are so great for anyone wishing to lead a healthier lifestyle.



Apartment developments often come with facilities that are only open to residents & their guests. Making use of these communal areas is a great way to meet the neighbours, spend quality time with family & friends, or enjoy some quiet time in your sanctuary. At Ridgewaters Kiama, developing communities is at the heart of the project, with a communal garden & courtyard where residents can enjoy and relax in nature literally on their doorstep.


Apartment complexes invest in the overall safety of their residents. Apartments often feature key codes or swipe pass entry systems or intercoms that prevent unwanted guests from entering the building. Ridgewaters Kiama has state-of-the-art security features such as a video intercom, card swipe access to the main entry and a secured car park with lift and apartment access.

Whether deciding to live in a house or an apartment, you are deciding between two lifestyles: do-it-yourself or have-it-done-for-you. 

Maintenance and Lower Responsibility

When it comes to an apartment, expect less maintenance than a house. The biggest benefit of living in an apartment is that you only need to clean or maintain the portion of the project you own. Meaning you only need to clean the interior of your apartment, plus any courtyards or balconies. 

Not only are you moving into a safe and secure apartment environment that is bound to the latest safety and construction requirements, but external and communal maintenance is done for you. Upkeep of any communal garden areas is the responsibility of the corporate body, along with any maintenance issues with the building. Freeing you up to enjoy the coastal lifestyle you’ve been longing for.


Do not confuse rightsizing for downsizing.

Downsizing refers to moving from a larger home to one with less space due to a change in how you live.

Rightsizing is often done during the early stages or once retiring. Moving people with a four-bedroom house, plus a large back & front yard, they just don’t need anymore. So, they rightsize.

Rightsizing comes with the understanding of how you live in your home and choosing to live in a property that suits your current needs.

Why not rightsize by the beach and enjoy what the coast has to offer? At Ridgewaters Kiama, you can enjoy all that Kiama has to offer when you only have to maintain a 3-bedroom apartment. Less maintenance and responsibility means more time exploring and relaxing the coastal life, with 3 bedrooms to host the family for weekend getaways.

Embrace Nature’s Beauty

Coastal apartments are perfect for those who can’t get enough of nature’s beauty. Coastal living can offer you some of nature’s beautiful scenery, such as blowholes, rock pools and beaches. You can enjoy nature’s beauty on scenic coastal walks as the sun sets over the horizon and warm sunlight embraces your skin. 

A prime example of this coastal living lifestyle can be seen in Kiama, where the Kiama Markets opens every Sunday, where locals and tourists come to support local businesses as well as admire the stunning view of Black Beach Reserve. If you feel more like hiking or trekking, you can visit the beautiful Minnamurra Falls, Saddleback Mountain Lookout, and Bombo Headland Quarry.

Through coastal apartment living, be at ease as you take in nature’s beauty from the moment you step out the door.

The convenience of exercising and having fun in the sun is something that makes coastal living so great. With green rolling hills, fresh air, and an environment perfect to be out and about, coastal apartments give you no excuse to be locked in at home.
