The Pines Golf Course, Hope Island Resort, Sanctuary Cove, Santa Barbara, upmarket waterfront property
northern Gold Coast's Hope Island is
home to the upmarket Sanctuary Cove and
Santa Barbara developments, which have
grown in prestige and value over the
past 20 years. With a raft of
well-planned community facilities, it is
easy to see why. The continual
development of Hope Island and
surrounding areas, conveniently located
in the growth corridor between the Gold
Coast and Brisbane, has seen the area
grow steadily over recent years. The
Hope Island area area is a very popular
part of the Gold Coast, with its close
proximity to all amenities and it
attracts a range of buyers.
Families are well catered for, with plenty of community facilities and services, located close to 10 schools with shopping centres and theme parks and the Pacific Motorway only minutes away. However, the main buyer demographic is retired or semi-retired couples with interests in boating and golf. There are many golf courses in the district, including Hope Island Resort, the Pines Private and the Palms Golf Courses.
The majority of home ownership on Hope Island is group titled offering a wide range of new prestigious and well-secured developments with both dry and wet blocks designed to provide a safe environment for families. For buyers looking for something more exclusive, the Hope Island Resort offers a world-class golf course and million-dollar homes.
Developed in the 1980s, Sanctuary Cove has grown to consist of two excellent golf courses, Marine Village shopping centre, which has more than 75 shops ranging from gift shops to restaurants, the Hyatt Regency Hotel, numerous cafes and bars, and lots of very expensive housing options.
Access in and out of Hope Island is possible by car or by boat - via Sanctuary Cove's marina located on a natural waterway on the Coomera River, which flows to the Southport Broadwater and the Pacific Ocean. The Brisbane and Gold Coast airports are both within 50 minutes' drive.
Sanctuary Cove's village community includes new harbour front dining precinct, a country club facility, recreation club and community sports ground. The beauty of the area, deep-water mooring facilities, luxury housing developments and access in and out of the neighbouring Coomera River area, all contribute to help make Hope Island one of the Gold Coast's most prestigious suburbs
