Visiting a five-star resort is lovely but living there is a whole different experience. Imagine waking up in the morning to a view of the water and sipping your coffee as you ponder which golf course you’d like to play today. Perhaps you’d prefer a lively game of tennis, or a visit to the club house for a swim and massage. Stroll out your front door, hop in your golf buggy and off you go. Sounds great, doesn’t it?

That could be you if you’re the lucky winner in draw 188 from Surf Life Saving. This time, they’re offering a $1.2 million first prize package that includes a luxurious modern home in Sanctuary Cove. You’ll be part of an exclusive community on the fringe of the Gold Coast, enjoying a carefree lifestyle that’s filled with activities right on your doorstep. You’ll also have a 4-seater golf buggy to whisk you to the shopping village and $20,000 in gold bullion to spend any way you please. This is a truly classy draw.

Living in Sanctuary Cove

The Marina at Sanctuary Cove is filled with yachts and pleasure boats, carrying eager visitors to this world-class resort. They come for the fine dining, the ever-changing list of live performances, and the chance to play on one of two championship golf courses. Residents of the community enjoy all of this and much more, in a tranquil setting that provides everything you’d expect from resort living.

The Marine Village is located close to the prize home and is filled with entertainment options, a live theatre for the performing arts, boutique shops and gourmet dining. At the club house, you can play tennis, swim in the heated pool, or check-in for a soothing massage. When you’re not playing golf, your buggy will take you anywhere you want to go on the property including the marina, parklands and gardens.

If you decide to venture further afield, Surfer’s Paradise is less than half an hour down the road. You can spend the rest of your life exploring the attractions of the Gold Coast and still come home every night to your own private luxury accommodations by the water.

The home features four bedrooms and three separate lounge areas. On the first level, you’ll find an open concept living and dining room alongside a well-appointed kitchen with all the appliances you’ll ever need. There’s a separate lounge near the entrance and a large al fresco out back that comes with a fantastic BBQ and kitchenette. Eat under stars after a leisurely dip in your inground pool.

On the second level, another retreat lies at the top of the stairs, central to the four spacious bedrooms. The master suite has a lovely balcony with plenty of room to sit comfortably and enjoy the view. There are two full bathrooms, including the master ensuite, and a powder room on the lower level. Lots of space for all the many guests who’ll jump at the chance to visit you on the resort.

A Healthy Second Income

If you’re not yet ready to move full-time to a five-star resort, you can always rent out the property for a very nice second income. If you lease it out fully furnished, you’ll enjoy an extra $57,200 a year to put towards holidays, debts, or an early retirement. The property values in the area continue to rise, so you won’t have any problem selling and capitalizing on an increased windfall a few years from now. Then again, if you just want to see what over a million dollars looks like in your bank account, putting the home on the market will make you an instant millionaire.
