Everyone dreams of a holiday where you can relax in five-star comfort and enjoy a round of golf, a little fishing, or an afternoon of boutique shopping. But what if you could enjoy that kind of lifestyle year-round?
The latest offering from the Surf Life Saving Home Lottery offers you exactly that opportunity. A luxurious home in a private residential community on the Gold Coast will have you living a life of leisure that most can only dream of.
Sanctuary Cove – An Outstanding Leisure and Residential Community
The home at 2490 The Parkway is located within the community of Sanctuary Cove, 55 kilometres from the centre of Brisbane on the Gold Coast. The resort covers an area of 474 hectares to the south of the Coomera River, and Coomera Island lies off its eastern perimeter.
Sanctuary Cove is an entirely self-contained community, with its own shopping centre and entertainment venues. There are several restaurants, cafes and bars in the Marine Village, from where you can watch the sun set over the private harbour. There are also dozens of specialty, fashion and gift shops in the village, along with a full range of banking and business services.
You’ll be spoiled for choice with two championship golf courses in your back yard. Both the Pines and the Palms offer world-class play on immaculate fairways. The Pines is Australia’s only Arnold Palmer signature course and is one of the country’s most challenging venues. The Palms offers more relaxed play on another championship course which was recently rejuvenated to the tune of $8.8 million by designer Ross Watson.
There’s Always Something to Do at the Resort
The Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club provides a whole different level of exercise, entertainment and pampering. There you’ll find a 25-meter heated swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym facility and five flood-lit tennis courts. When you’re done, there’s always time for a soothing massage.
Because Sanctuary Cove is a popular destination for tourists and boaters, there’s always something happening in the Marine Village. This includes regular outdoor markets with hand-made crafts and fashions, wine tasting events, a festival in the Spring and a renown International Boat Show in the Fall.
When it comes down to it, you may never leave the Cove once you discover everything this resort setting provides for its lucky (and totally pampered) residents!
Take Your Golf Cart to “Work”
The first prize package in draw #183 includes an executive golf buggy worth $13,990. It seats two and will whisk you to wherever you’re going in Sanctuary Cove. Follow the wide paved paths to the marina, village, movie theatre, tennis club, swimming pool, or café. Even though you’ll also have a two-car garage, you’re unlikely to need the car unless you’re leaving town.
Oh, and you can also use your buggy for a round of golf.

The Surf Life Saving Lottery Draw #183 closes at 12:00 noon AEST on October 16th, 2017. The First Prize Winner will be drawn at 12:00 noon AEST on October 20th, 2017.

Unfortunately, the prize home won’t be open for public inspection prior to the draw. You are still welcome to come for a visit, however, and enjoy the public golf course or a stroll through the Marine Village. Stay for dinner and imagine what it would be like to call this beautiful part of the coast “home”.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?
If you’re the lucky winner of the Sanctuary Cove prize home, you’ll have to decide whether you’re ready for full-time resort living. Even though you will be within easy commuting distance of Brisbane, you may not wish to move at this time. Thankfully, you’ve got lots of options.
If you want to rent out the property while you’re deciding what to do with your prize in the future, you can expect to receive about $44,200 per annum. You’ll get even more if you decide to leave the furnishings in place. That’s enough to treat yourself to a new car, holiday or other special treat every single year!
You can always sell the home straight away if you want to do something else with your million-dollar windfall. Know that if you hang onto it, however, housing prices in the area grew over 26% in the last five years. That makes your prize a very enticing long-term investment as well.
