Sanctuary Cove is a gated community and town in the suburb of Hope Island in the Gold Coast area of Queensland, Australia

 

Sanctuary Cove is a completely self-contained residential environment with its own shopping centre and entertainment facilities. It also many of the facilities of a holiday resort, such as boating marinas and golf courses and is one of my many favourite Australian places to be.

It is also home to Mittens and Lily, two very adventurous felines, some gold fish and a beautiful black Labrador named “Java”.

My hosts Jen, Steve, Sam and India were wonderful and ensured an amazing basket of goodies as a welcome to their lovely home which is a beautifully renovated “Queenslander”.

The Queenslander house is a classic piece of Australian architectural design with its distinctive timber and corrugated iron appearance.

                     

Here's what the owners had to say:

 

 

 

 

 

We feel so lucky to have met such a positive, caring, consistent and energetic force that is Anthony!

What a joy to meet him and feel instantly relaxed about sharing our home and our pets.
A truly thoughtful person, Anthony communicates superbly and reassuringly.
His cheerfulness and relaxedness rubbed off on the pets and returning home was like returning to a friend..we shared a cup of tea before Anthony travelled to his next homesitting.
With such incredible life experience, Anthony is truly a fresh of breath air.
Thank you Anthony for being so wonderful to us and our pets.
It was such a privilege to meet you, and I hope next we go away that you will be free to come back if you choose.
We all will miss you and you deserve nothing but the best life offers.
Warm regards,
Jenny , Steve, Sam and India
