"Easy to get to anywhere"

Carpenter Street is very convenient, with the high school and golf course at one end, and the local bus that runs along it each day. Although this might make it sound like a busy street, its not really. Its really convenient to get to the shops at Umina (BiLo, Woolworths - coming soon, Aldi - coming soon) as well as all the other essentials you might need. The beach is gorgeous, even in the most busy times, you can still get a spot on the beach without feeling like people are sitting on top of you, and of course, parking is FREE!! Its also just a short drive (or bike ride) to Woy Woy Station, and an easy drive up Woy Woy Rd to the F3 if you need to commute. Its really flat, so walking and riding a bike is simple for a leisurely explore of the area. Everyone seems really nice and Christmas time is lovely as people get into the Christmas Light thing, without it being too over the top. Umina itself is a lovely place to live, and there are some great little clubs and restaurants to eat at. The local cinema is cheap, but they do lack coffee shops that are open of an evening if you want just a coffee and dessert. The house prices are on the way up I think so I think we have bought at the right time (2009). People from Sydney will start to discover how inexpensive it is to live at Umina but still relatively easy to get to work in Sydney if they need to. Beach living is the best!! I highly recommend it.
The street itself can feel narrow if people park on the street (its all curbed and guttered) but its not too bad. The houses are pretty much all brick and tile, but older style, on average sized blocks for here (about 600m2).
