Hi Carley, I have a young family and we have lived at Sanctuary Cove for the past three years. It is an absolutely beautiful and serene place to live and is very safe and quiet. We have a mixture of neighbours, retired people, families with children and professionals, everyone we have met here has been lovely. The village is fabulous and a great place to eat out and spend time on the weekends. We were originally worried that the Cove might be a place for 'keeping up with the Jones's' but we have never found it to be like this. There are a number of good private schools within a short drive (Coomera Anglican College, Saint Stephens College, Assisi). Cannot speak highly enough of this lovely estate its a wonderful place to live.

Jean Brown Hi Carley, the closest beach is Main Beach / The Spit which is around 20 - 25 mins drive with no traffic. Sanctuary Cove doesnt have a beach as such but residents are allowed to use the beach pool at the Intercontinental which is wonderful for kids and Paradise Point foreshore is only a 10 minute drive which is a lovely area on the broadwater with parks and playgrounds.

Jean Brown Hi Paolal, there are a lot of families in both Hope Island and Sanctuary Cove, actually there is a good mixture of families, executives and retirees, its a very peaceful place to live (Hope Island Resort or Sanctuary Cove specifically in the gated areas). The security companies are excellent, they patrol all day and are very strict with gate access for visitors and trades, we have never had any issues at all with attempted break ins and I dont know of any of our neighbours who have either. Each property in the resort has an emergency button hard wired too so if there is ever an issue you can buzz and they will be at your house in a flash. They've even helped me catch a bird who flew into the house previously which is way of out of their usual scope of work but they are just like that they always go over and above for residents. There are lots of beautiful parks and gardens and a number of playgrounds for kids, there are also lots of children playing on the grassed area by the sanctuary cove tavern (in normal times when its open).

paolal Great thank you for replying ! Couple more questions if you dont mind , are there lots of mozzies ? And what about cane toads as we have a dog ?

Jean Brown No problem - yes the are mozzies and also midgees - but they are in most areas of the coast near the water so they're hard to avoid. We sometimes have our property sprayed for mozzies and midgees in summer which helps and the council also spray the Hope Island area regularly too. When they are really bad you can't go outside without repellant around dusk or you will be eaten alive. There are some cane toads but not many, we have a dog also and he's chased a few but has never tried to eat one, they aren't a very big problem in our area generally speaking.
