"Sooooo quiet!"

I have visited Alkimos a few times over the last month for work. It is miles and miles away, but it looks great with all the new houses and you can sense the beach is just 'over there'. The new shops are being built so soon there will be Big W and others specialty stores in the area. In the meantime there is the new Yanchep Central just up the road, which I was quite surprised to see. On one occasion I was up there in the evening and the silence was just overwhelming! Something those of us living closer to the city miss is the absence of sound and the great starry sky! If you work in the area or don't mind traveling then Alkimos might be the place for you - sadly I had to go home again!
Pros
  • Peace and quiet!
  • Beachside suburb
  • Brand new suburb
  • Only 5mins from local shopping centre.
Cons
  • Distance from almost anywhere!

"A new surburb, lots of potential and growth. Very exciting."

We have built in Shorehaven. Love it so far. It's about 5mins from Shopping and services in Butler and about 10mins to Clarkson. The developer is really getting alot done and the suburb is looking great so far. We are very excited to see Shorehaven grow. The future plans look wonderful. It's classed as a private suburb so there is no homeswest housing which we were pleased to hear about.
Pros
  • Brand new suburb
  • Only 5mins from local shopping centre.
  • Beachside suburb
Cons
  • No school yet...but plans to come in the next 12mths
