Engage Holiday Mode: The Northern Gold Coast’s Winning Lifestyle

Who says your holiday ever has to end? Increasingly, Australians (and international buyers looking to snap up a prestige property) are looking to the stunning Northern Gold Coast region to scratch that vacation itch permanently! So, what is it about this specific area on the Gold Coast that appeals to holiday lovers from all walks of life? Let’s take a look at some of the finest features that the region has to offer, and why they’ll have you ready to recline on the waterfront in no time.

Leisure with a capital L

We’re all aware of the concept of a leisure resort and lifestyle, but the Northern Gold Coast (and the  beautiful suburbs it encompasses including Sanctuary Cove, Paradise Point and Hope Island) all have leisure at the forefront of their design and layouts.

You don’t have to be retired to find yourself zooming around town in a golf buggy – once you’ve entered the “zone” of the Northern Gold Coast, you’ll soon feel yourself relaxing into holiday mode. It’s not just the easy access to sun, sand and waterfront, it’s the spirit of a place whose residents are dedicated to bucking the trend of “busy is better” and are making time to make the most of every day – socialising, dining and enjoying.

So it’s understandable why buyers want to make this feeling permanent and snap up one of the premiere pieces of real estate in the area.

A holiday without the tourists

We can all agree that crowded tourist traps are anything but relaxing, and although Surfers Paradise is iconic, it’s also always busy, noisy and difficult to navigate at peak times.

Just 20 or so minutes up the coast you’ll find yourself in the serene suburbs of the Northern Gold Coast – all the perks of a resort-style location without the crowds or hustle and bustle.

Especially for those who choose to call this special slice of the world home, there’s an emphasis on security, peacefulness and an easygoing pace – why would you ever want to leave?

Retail-therapy & other indulgences

It’s not a holiday if you don’t treat yourself a little, and whether it’s designer boutiques or independent coffee shops you’re after, the Northern Gold Coast has it all in spades.

Attracting businesses who identify with the unique serenity of the area, this is the place where you’re likely to discover your new favourite local jewellery brand or pick up a gift for your loved ones back home. Forget big-name brands and mega stores, the retailers on offer here are all about offering you something new. 

Feeling peckish? From long brunches to cocktails with the girls, there are endless hotspots to experience (and enough variety that every date night provides a chance to wine and dine somewhere new!). 

Of course, with a permanent postcode the biggest gift you can offer friends and family is an invite to stay!
