This prestigious resort is one of the most well-known suburbs of the Gold Coast. The $2 billion sanctuary was built in 1986, and includes two immaculate golf courses, a deep-water marina with 300+ berths, an impeccable dining precinct, and rows of boutique homeware and fashion stores. A perfectly manicured estate awaits you behind the Sanctuary Cove Gates, luxury living within 20 minutes of Surfers Paradise.
