A "resort-style retirement village" offering residents an around-the-clock medical alert system and home maintenance service will open in Cooranbong on Sunday.

Seniors could look forward to a retirement in which they'd "never have to call a plumber or clean a gutter again", Catalina Village general manager Tracey Palser said.

Residents would have secure long-term tenure of their home and land and enjoy peace of mind that comes from having a 24/7 medical alert system, Ms Palser said.

"Catalina provides our residents the perfect combination of companionship and community with beautiful homes and contemporary facilities," she said.

"It means our retirees can lead fun, rich and fulfilling lives surrounded by caring friends and staff. What's more, our homes have been designed to meet best practice for disability and ageing in place standards."

The village features homes built by award-winning Yarrum Designer Homes, and a Catalina Community Centre with a terrace, 60-seat cinema, billiard room and resident lounge with stone fireplaces.

Stage 1, featuring 31 freestanding ground-level homes and villas is now open to view.

Homes start at $495,400.
