"The Place to be"

This place is beautiful.. Streets upon streets with million dollar estates, fantastic walk ways and parks with water surrounds and you might even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the dolphins who often come into the marina to feed - The people here are very friendly, falls in line of middle meets upper class. The community here seem very close, with an exercise class and good neighborhood watch program.
Pros
  • Beautiful, vibrant quiet community
  • Close to the city and shopping districts
Cons
  • Only con is all the road works on eastern hwy.

"Loved living here"

My wife and I used to live in ascot waters before moving away. It was great. we both worked in the city and subiaco. Get into work takes only 30 pleasant bike ride along the river so pleasant and all along good cycle routes and so picturesque. Or public transport took just 30 mins from door to city or subi train station. Buses pass Gt eastern and garratt rroad every 15 mins and garratt road bus goes straight to bayswater and then your on the midland line straightinto the city and subi, perfect. Or you jump inthe car and race straight down gt eatern and graham farmer too easy
another great thing was that taxis are only a couple of mins away becaues you ar so close to the airport.
Great restauarants and take away food allaraound you and belmont and morley shopping centre are mins away plus coles and IGA only 5 min drive in maylands

Love it

cheers
