Most of us have visited a resort at one time or another, but can you imagine actually living in one? The latest draw from Surf Life Saving could put you right in the centre of a luxurious gated community on the Gold Coast that’s got it all. Two golf courses, a stunning marina, tennis, swimming, a country club, shopping, and dining surrounded by beautiful gardens and a lovely view of the water. All of this from a stylish two-storey home that’s packed with modern design features.
Along with the fabulous residence in Sanctuary Cove, there’s a 4-seater golf buggy thrown in to help you get around your new neighbourhood. Add another $20,000 in gold bullion and you’ve got a classy first prize package that’s valued at $1,294,572. If you love a walk on the greens or just want an oasis of calm that’s only 60 minutes from the city, this draw is for you.
Welcome to Sanctuary Cove
The Sanctuary Cove Resort lies at the gateway to the Gold Coast, conveniently located an hour from Brisbane and just thirty minutes from the heart of Surfer’s Paradise. It’s a playground for avid golfers and has something for everyone, even if your idea of a great afternoon is sipping a latte and watching the world go by. The community has been hosting an international boat show since 1988 and is home to several festivals and special events. The Marine Village is transformed into a winter wine trail in July, and you can catch live entertainment in the streets all year round or settle in for a show at the Village Theatre.
Your golf buggy will take you to the shops, an evening of fine dining, or anywhere else you’d like to go on the resort. Head to the marina with its 300 moorings and admire the superyachts that stop in for a visit. You’ll also have your choice of The Pines or The Palms when you’re ready for a round of golf. Both are championship venues, and The Pines is Arnold Palmer’s signature course. In the country club, you’ll find a 25-metre heated swimming pool, a games room and a special club for the kids. Relax with a massage after a game of tennis on one of five lighted courts. You can get a little coaching or join the social league with both grass and hardcourt surfaces on which to perfect your game. If you like staying active, you won’t be short of opportunities.
If you ever do decide to start up the car and leave the resort, you’ll have the entire Gold Coast at your feet. Pop down to Surfers’, take your pick from dozens of world-famous beaches, or spend the day at one of the many attractions that make this part of the country a magnet for tourists. Wherever you decide to go, you’ll be coming home to a resort lifestyle that can’t be beat.
Your Home on the Greens
The home in draw 188 is tucked alongside The Pines golf course, close to the Marina and shopping village. There are four bedrooms on the upper level above an open-plan main floor. The crisp white décor is accented with touches of teal and deep blues for a relaxed yet definitely upscale ambiance. The outdoor entertainment area includes a pristine inground pool and an alfresco that comes complete with a massive vented BBQ. The kitchen has a butler’s pantry for easy meal preparation and a long breakfast bar with stool seating. With both a living area and separate lounge, you’ll have plenty of space to put your feet up. And there’s another cozy retreat on the second level.
The master bedroom has a spacious balcony and a full ensuite bathroom. The other three bedrooms are all generously proportioned and share a second full bathroom on the upper level. Whether you’re entertaining guests or moving in with a large family, this home has plenty of room for everyone. This is a good thing because with so much to offer, you’ll have plenty of takers for weekends at your own private resort.

The prize home in draw 188 will not be open for public inspection prior to the draw. If you happen to be visiting Sanctuary Cove between now and August, however, you can always drive by for a look at this prestigious property. You’ll find the home at 1899 Sunningdale Court, Sanctuary Cove, Queensland 4212.
Your Prize Could Be Worth Even More
If you’ve always wanted to live next to your yacht, can’t get enough of golf, or just want to spend the rest of your life on a resort, you probably can’t wait to make the move to Sanctuary Cove. If you’re ready for a whole new lifestyle, the first prize home is certainly ready to welcome you.
Many lottery winners decide to sell their property and make other dreams come true with the proceeds. That’s always an option but hanging onto the home for a few years could dramatically increase the value of your winnings. The housing market in this part of Queensland has grown over 26 per cent in the last five years and median house prices are continuing to rise. That means if you decide to sell down the road, you could receive an even greater return from your windfall.
Should you decide to rent out the property, you’ll have plenty of takers. The vacancy rate is around 1.7 per cent so you’ll be able to choose from among multiple applicants to find the very best tenants. If you rent fully furnished, you can expect to receive about $57,200 per year as a second income. That’s enough to treat yourself to an annual luxury vacation, a new vehicle, or make deep inroads on paying off your mortgage. That extra income could even allow you to retire early or cross off any number of things on your bucket list. Whatever you decide to do, there’s no question that winning this one gives you financial security and opens the door to a whole new future.
