It’s not enough to just love the home you live in, you also need to love where you live. And it’s impossible not to feel like you hit the real estate jackpot in Sanctuary Cove. Every day feels like a holiday thanks to the laidback lifestyle and stunning setting. It’s one of the many things you’ll appreciate about living here if you were to win our waterfront 4-bedroom Mater Prize Home, located in the prestigious gated community at Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast.

Here’s what a typical day in Sanctuary Cove could look like if you were to win our latest Mater Prize Home No. 296.

Stand Up Paddleboard

Start your day with a morning paddle

Waterfront living is a big part of the allure of calling Sanctuary Cove home. From the beautiful water vistas outside your windows to being a stone’s throw away from the Coomera River and the Gold Coast’s beautiful beaches, you’ll have water on the brain from the moment you wake up. Start your morning bright and early with a kayak or stand-up paddle board along the Coomera River and surrounding canals.

Don’t have a kayak or SUP? Hire one from Paradise Point Parklands or use the $7,700 cashable gold bullion included in your home lottery package to splurge on some new water toys. You’ll get plenty of use out of them while living on the Gold Coast.


Head out for a lazy brunch

The beauty of Sanctuary Cove is it has everything you need close by. The selection of dining options down at The Marine Village has all meals covered, especially when it comes to the most important meal of the day. Bistro 19 has a reputation for the best coffee around; Pier B Cafe is your go-to for a nourishing menu of smoothie bowls, hearty wholefood brekkies and guilt-free baked doughnuts; while Anchor Buoy is sure to become your favourite spot for a sun-drenched brunch by the water.


Enjoy a round of golf in the afternoon

When one of Australia’s best and most challenging golf courses is practically in your backyard, it seems rude not to head out for a hit every chance you can get. Plus, a round of golf is a great way to wind down at the end of the day (albeit, your day has been pretty relaxing thus far!). The Pines golf course has a course rating of 74 off the black tees and 72 off the blue tees and is surrounded by 101 hectares of established pine forests and six man-made lakes. Frequented by native Australian kangaroos and rare bird life, the tranquillity is on par with The Pines’ prestigious grounds.

Don’t forget to take along your new Club Car Tempo Golf Cart, which is included in our prize home lottery.

MPH296 Patio

Wine and dine on your outdoor patio

Come home, kick off your golf shoes, open up the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors to your outdoor patio and fire up the barbecue. Tonight, you’re dining alfresco in your private outdoor oasis. Take your new deluxe four-burner gas barbecue for a test run as you cook up a feast of steak, sausages, burgers, kebabs or whatever takes your fancy. Just make sure you don’t get distracted by the stunning water views beyond your barbecue. Once dinner is ready, grab a bottle of wine from your wine fridge and sit down to your meal in your outdoor dining ‘room’. Now you can soak up that view!

Alternatively, if you don’t feel like cooking, book a table at The Marine Village’s newest restaurant, Chim Thai. Opening earlier this year, its modern meets traditional Thai flavours are already proving to be popular with not just the locals but also residents from the greater Gold Coast area. Everything is good on the menu, so go ahead and over-order – you can always have the leftovers tomorrow.

Sound just like the carefree lifestyle you’ve been longing for? Buy your tickets today to win Mater Prize Home lottery No. 296 and you could be spending your future days lapping up the slow-paced life in Sanctuary Cove. Plus, every home lottery ticket you purchase helps support life-changing medical research and patient care at Mater.
