Gerry and Patricia’s Bayside Moving Story – We’re In!

We met the lovely Gerry and Patricia back in 2019 as they were one of the first residents to register their interest with us to live at Bayside Apartments. They have now collected the keys to their fabulous new luxury apartment in Bayside Horizon and have had a few weeks to settle in. We caught up with them to see how things are going.

Gerry and Patricia told us: “It’s a surreal feeling to have moved in after three years of watching the development take shape. It’s going to take time for it to feel like home, but we’re quite happy living like we’re in a 5* star hotel!”

Gerry and Patricia’s family home was in Broadwater, but once their children had grown up and left home, they wanted to embark on the next chapter of their lives.

Patricia said: “We have always wanted to live near the seafront, and Bayside ticked all the boxes. It is right on the beach, offers wonderful sea views, parking and lifts. It was the right development in the right location at the right time.”

When the Covid pandemic hit, Gerry and Patricia were in the middle of their purchase, so while there purchasing experience wasn’t exactly ‘normal ’, they were very grateful for the support and service they received.

Gerry commented: “We bought our first property off-plan, so had an idea of what to expect. The experience was marred by covid, so I’m sure we never got to realise a normal Roffey Homes buyers experience. Having said that, Roffey and Michael Jones always tried to do their best for us and have been very accommodating both before and after we moved in.”

When we asked them both how it felt to be living in their new home at Bayside they said: “The best bit is we don’t have to imagine living here anymore because we are! Living in luxury, drinks on the balcony, amazing sea views, an eight-minute walk into town, and a two-minute walk to the beach – you can’t beat it!”


It was really great to catch up with Gerry and Patricia. We wish them all the best for the future, and we hope to see them again soon.

    We have just sold our house through Michael Jones with Dominic acting as our agent. We had excellent service, were kept up to date with progress, all questions answered promptly and the Dominic was regularly in touch with the buyer, particularly … More as his solicicitor was very slow and on one occasion unproffessional, which moved the sale along. Very happy overall and would throughly recommend Dominic and Michael Jones.
