Reside offers sneek peek of Esperance Stage 2 - Essence

The curtain was lifted, as Reside Communities unveiled the public’s very first look at Essence – Stage 2 of Esperance Hope Island – at a special preview event on the Gold Coast. 

Raising the bar for luxury retirement living, more than 130 people came along to hear from a panel of experts, including Reside CEO Glen Brown, Reside Chief Operating Officer Craig Syphers, Esperance General Manager Michael Foster, and CEO of Five Good Friends Simon Lockyer, learning first-hand what sets the project apart from other developments. 

Attendees had a chance to see their future homes, visualise their new life and even took the opportunity to meet their future neighbours. 

Soon-to-be Essence residents and sisters, Marge and Margo, were delighted to learn how close their apartments were from each other, excited that from their balconies they could wave to each other. 

Glen Brown said there was a buzz of excitement in the air, as future residents and guests enjoyed learning about Essence and the five-star lifestyle Esperance offers.


“The Esperance Hope Island project is renowned for its high level of care, friendly staff, and luxurious amenities. From a state-of-the-art magnesium pool and fully equipped, gym to beautifully landscaped gardens and a cozy café, every detail has been thoughtfully designed to enhance the living experience,” he said. 

 “The waterfront position of Esperance offers breathtaking 150-metre uninterrupted views of the canal, with Sanctuary Cove and the Broadwater just a stone’s throw away. This prime location not only provides stunning vistas but also easy access to a variety of recreational activities.” 

Craig Syphers shared his vision for the future of retirement living at Esperance, emphasising the luxurious and convenient lifestyle that the new stage will offer. 

“It’s been a year since our first residents moved into Stage 1 of Esperance, and their feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. They are thriving, enjoying the lifestyle, amenities, and the exceptional 24/7 care we provide,” he said. 

“Unveiling the first look at Stage 2 Essence is a significant milestone, and we are thrilled to welcome the future residents who will make Esperance their home. 

“Retirees are seeking connection and community, and Esperance offers all that and more. Our team is dedicated to ensuring our residents age gracefully and enjoy a fulfilling retirement.” 

Essence at Esperance preview event was a tremendous success, reflecting the excitement and anticipation surrounding this remarkable project. As Reside continues to innovate and elevate the standards of retirement living, Esperance Hope Island stands out as a beacon of luxury and community on the Gold Coast.
