"I want to grow old in Gymea Bay"

I love Gymea Bay, i'll be sad the day that we have to leave the area. I have not had any trouble or bad experience since i moved into the area (Break-ins or car theft). My neighbours are lovely and very friendly.
To drive to Cronulla beach it only takes 15 mins and Miranda Westfield is only 2.5km away. The only downside is that we want to buy in the area and its out of our reach. But if you are lucky enough to afford the prices, dont look past Gymea Bay.
Pros
  • Close to Gymea shops & Westfield Miranda
  • Public transport
  • Beautiful area to live
Cons
  • Prices to buy a house

"Very quiet neighborhood, yet very close to all that Gymea and Miranda & Cronulla have to offer."

Gymea Bay is a picturesque, quiet leafy suburb. Most of the houses in the area are blessed with views of either the Port Hacking River, the Royal National Park, the beautiful distant Sydney city scape or all three. Many of the houses even have direct water access. As the name suggests it is set on the bay side of President Avenue (one of the main thoroughfare roads through the Sutherland Shire) meaning there is no reason for thoroughfare traffic of any kind. Most streets are only a causal flat stroll to the ever popular Gymea Bay rd shops and cafe precinct, and if thats not enough Miranda fair is only a 3 min drive away. For those that don't waterfronts Gymea Bay baths are also walking distance to many of the streets, and the ever beautiful Cronulla beach is only a 10 min drive away.
