"Located on an isthmus between the beach and the lake"

We have lived in Buff point for 12 years now and would not move for all the tea in China. Buff point is a small friendly, safe community with little traffic but with plenty to do to keep the kids entertained. There are many top class parks with amenities, a small community shopping centre, a topnotch preschool, and a friendly club that offers 1st class meals, all within the tiny confines of Buff point. It is only minutes away from a large shopping centre, the beach, and for those that commute, the freeway and a train station. Top fishing and prawning is only a few steps away and sporting facilities abound here. Paradise!!
Pros
  • Safety, no traffic, beautiful views, the beach, the lake, everything
Cons
  • None come to mind

"A place by the lake, close to the beaches and plenty of leafy areas too"

After living here for the past 5 yrs with my young family we have gotten to know the area well. There are plenty of oppurtunities for the kids to have safe,clean fun. There are parks, fishing spots and of course all the different kinds of junior sports you can think of.
The schools and preschools are exceptional.
The area has a friendly, safe feel about it.
The only concerns about the area we have is the lack of basic infrastructure that needs upgrading like the electricity and the phone lines. We have many unexplained blackouts every year.
