"Green, quiet"

We live in a cul de sac running up to the forest.
It is quiet with abundant birdlife, green and spectacular views and we love living here. The farmers markets, cinema, library and many shopping precincts are easily accessible, and 20 minutes to the beach, major restaurants, major shops and movie theatres. It is close to the motorway so access to anywhere is quick. and the train station is 3 klms away. What could be better?

"Is everyone renovating here?"

Weekends are filled with saws and drill noises, everyone seems to be working on their houses. They are really starting to improve all the daggy old houses near the PCYC.

"Nothing wrong with Nerang"

I have lived in Nerang for 5+ years and I can honestly say you should never judge a book by it's cover. Nerang has much to offer in the way of affordable housing, shopping options, schooling, parks and transport. Nerang also has a vast number of $$$ acreage properties and large homes which suit people looking for in town acreage. It is a great place to live right bang smack in the middle of the Gold Coast. There is a lot of young families in the area and first home buyers so the overall appearance is on the up which is great.

"Our quiet cul-de-sac in Nerang!!!! Close to everything!!!!"

My partner & I bought in our first home in Nerang just off McLaren Road about 3 1/2 years ago now and we couldnt be happier... we have renovated our place which is now all finished.

We love being able to just walk down to the massive off leash dog park and let the pups have a good play. To be honest we have met al least 40 people just going down the the park and we still remain close friends...

Cinemas and shops are just 5min up the road, we are 15min to beach which is great too!!!!! We even have a school at the bottom of our street.

I am very happy we choose to live in Nerang rather than moving all the way up to Coomera.

"Never Judge a Book by its Cover!"

Having moved from Sydney in 2005 to the Gold Coast for a lifestyle change we settled on the Isle of Capri. But then we sold & while looking for a new place my wife found a house in Nerang. When we first arrived in Queensland we did the usual drive around to investigate where to live & back then, we vowed we would never live in Nerang. But as we all know things change & more often than not for the better. In actual fact we were blown away not just by the property, but the street, its residents & everything in general about the area.

All the properties in this street are around 800m2 or bigger in land & most if not nearly all with swimming pools & large gardens. The neighbours in the street do keep to themselves but everyone knows each other, is friendly & greet each other with hello or wave whenever they pass by. There are many shopping centres around in Nerang (all the majors & a whole lot more more),& its only 15 -18 minutes to Surfers Paradise, the beach, a mulititude of internationally recognised golf courses, Robina town centre or Pacific Fair. Wet & Wild & the other fun parks are only 10 - 15 minutes away for the kids & Coolangatta airport just 30 minutes up the road. Nerang also has one of the cheapest cinemas around (see the same flicks as everyone else for half price') & the Nerang RSL only costs $5 to join for a year.

Everything here is right on your doorstep or only a quarter of an hours drive away yet you can feel a world away with the serenity of the place. There are enormous parklands to walk & a very large one designated just for dogs so even your pet is catered for. To be quite frank, it has to be the best street we have ever lived in & the neighbours & neighbourhood are simply fantastic. The other bonus with this street is that it is a cul-de-sac so only those that live here enter it & it can be a bit like a time warp where kids play on the street like we all used too many years ago. Great to be able to find a place where kids can still enjoy being kids just like when we were young, with their bikes,street cricket & the like. In our street, you never here the saying " Remember the good old days" because in our street it seems they never went. We could easily live here for many years to come.

"Here to stay"

Moving from Sydney to Qld was not difficult and it didn't take my daughter long to pack her room ready for the move. I moved and rented to Qld for 12 months for work and when looking to purchase property I was informed by a few people not to buy in Nerang. But due to finance's and my criteria of what i was looking for Nerang turned out to be the best asset ever. I live in a cul de sac where all the neighbours are friendly and supportive. It normally takes you a good 20 minutes to walk out of the street because someone see's you walking the dog and come out to say hello and see how you are doing. Now that my daughter has left home i had decided to sell up and move to a smaller property but after looking around for 2 weeks i couldn't get the same wow factor and same ideal situation of living in a cul de sac.
I turned down a high price for my property becasue i have decided to stay all due to the neighbours, closeness to all the factilities and start enjoying the renovations that i have nearly completed. My daughter was very happy about not selling the house due to the fact she has decided that she would like to move back because her new job is walking distance from home.

"The Criterion"

The older area of Nerang is becoming a mix of older couples who are friendly and welcoming and younger families who are spending money to renovate and bring up the quality of the housing.
What a great mix!
A lovely area with jobs, infrastructure, transport, and great parks which is shaking off its tag of daggy and underprivileged.
Australian Property Investor Magazine even chose Nerang as a high growth area full of potential.

"I love Nerang!"

My husband and I lived in Nerang for 8 years now and we love it. I work here, live here and if we had KMart I would shop here too. Nerang is rebuilding its reputation of a nice and affordable place to live. Our house backs right on Nerang river and we get lots of birds and wildlife which we love. Nerang is central and quite large, it has a house commission area but it has beautiful mansions on acreage as well, so its quite diverse in the choice of accommodation. Once you'll live here you'll love it too.

"Little unknown Street in Nerang,Oak Street."

I recently visited this little known Street close to Nerang Town Centre, Oak Street, To my surprise it contains very large homes on acerage. The Street has a lovely presence, and there is gardens everywhere. The area is very private, as only the residents appear to use the Street. It is so close to Supermarkets, you can walk to the Cinemas. Post Office, Library. Bus stop at the end of the Street, and easy access to Medical Centres and the M1. I was so taken with the fact that there were such lovely large homes on acerage, not that all the houses are visible from the road, so close to a Shopping Precinct. The only down side was turning from Beaudesert Road into the Street with it being so close to Traffic Lights. Much easier to go the next street, turn in and come back along Beaudesert Road, depending on the traffic at the time.

"Great Street walking distatce to Shops, Cinemas, Supermarkets etc."

Oak Street is full of lovely large homes on acerage, the area is very clean and friendly. Many of the properties cannot be seen from the Street but present as exceptional. It is a little hidden area as it is not well known that it is an acerage area, as it is so close to the Township. I could not believe that these very large, well presented homes existed in this area, it is truely a hidden jewell. Very little traffic enters the Street with the exception of the occupants. The only negative I could find when I visited was when turning in from Beaudesert Road, and traffic was approaching from the lights. Just a lovely, lovely Street.

"Great infrastructure"

I have recently moved here as a renter - into a townhouse on nerang road. This suburb has a great infrastructure - I'm close to shops, cinema, transport and parks. I love visiting the local markets on the weekend and going for a walk by the river in the afternoon. I cant believe how cheap the townhouses are around here, I plan to buy soon.
