Your Hosts

Christina & Owen Bain moved to Springbrook from the Gold Coast in early May 2011. They viewed a property for sale called "The Sanctuary" and fell in love with it.


The rest is history....

They married later that month at The Sanctuary as they could think of no other place as romantic as the setting found here in there own piece of paradise.


Their wedding day was so successful they decided to build a wedding gazebo with a path leading down from the Cottage, they surrounded the gazebo with a red rose garden & manicured lawns and they now offer small wedding & elopement packages for others to have the same romantic experience.


Before coming to Springbrook, Owen & Christina ran a busy café down on the Coast offering an all day breakfast menu. Be assured if you take the optional extra cooked breakfast, it will be good!


One of Owens passions is coffee, and he roasts fresh coffee at The Sanctuary and supplies coffee to numerous locations, a sample with plunger is supplied for all our guests.


Christina’s background includes over 20 years in the massage & beauty industry, whilst Owen is an electrician with a busy contracting business.


At The Sanctuary Christina & Owen find much joy in the simple pleasures of growing fresh organic produce, maintaining the beautiful gardens and caring for their chickens that lay the freshest of eggs.
