Can you tell us a little bit about The Shoreline?

The Shoreline offers luxury Retirement Living within walking distance of the beautiful beaches of Coffs Harbour and the convenience Park Beach Plaza, our own regional shopping centre.  Our community provides peace of mind offering both Independent Living and Residential Care within the village.

As you look after the Independent Living part of the village, can you elaborate?

Our deluxe one, two and three bedroom, apartments, villas & terraces provide our residents with a beautiful home & lifestyle second to none with our clubhouse boasting exceptional facilities for the residents to enjoy a variety of leisure activities.

What further development can we look forward to at The Shoreline?

Our stunning Headland Terraces the corner of Arthur & York Streets, are about to be unveiled with the scaffolding coming down soon; they will be ready for move in the next few months.  There will also be the release of more beautiful ground level villas and our prestige Watermark apartments sometime in the future. 

What is your favourite part of the work you do?

Ultimately my greatest job satisfaction is seeing residents in our Shoreline family happily living their best lives.  There are many different individual ideals when it comes to retirement lifestyle.  Working with people to help them realise their dream, ease their journey into retirement living and see them settle happily into our village is the favourite part of my job.

Who is your greatest influence in business?

In business, my dad, John Hood is my greatest influence.  Having the foresight many years ago, to see where the IT world was headed, he has been a lifelong learner and from starting his business in 1995 in the garage, has grown a very successful company.  He has been motivated by the benefits that have come to our family and led by example with his combined dedication, work ethic, and kindness.

Have you always lived on the Coffs Coast?

I came to Coffs Harbour for a holiday in my early 20’s, from Victoria.  My family moved here a few years earlier and my idea was to escape the Victorian winter and spend time with my parents, sister and brothers; we’re a pretty close-knit bunch. The warmer weather, ocean swimming, lifestyle and mainly the joy of living closer to my family again, meant I never left.
