"Perfect for families"

I've been living in the area for 2 years now. Has to say it's my perfect match. Feel safe to walk at night and it has everything you need. Only 20km to CBD and easy access to everything. In terms of night life and eat out, you have more than enough choices to choose from Clayton, Oakleigh and Chaddy. Not to mentioned Monash Hospital is less than 7 mins drive.

"Really peaceful and perfect for families"

Used to live in Narre Warren South, moved here 4 years ago, so much of difference. Shopping, freeway, reach to the city, people and greenery is amazing. Old style houses gives good warm homely feelings
Just love it...

"A nice, quiet, friendly place to live"

I rented in Oakleigh East (on Dublin St) for about 2 years. It was largely a quiet area (although the early morning noise coming from the primary school did get a bit annoying!). It's a convenient location; it's close to Monash University, and Chadstone is not far away. Public transport options are many - you're near Princes Hwy with buses that will take you anywhere, and you can choose between Huntingdale and Oakleigh stations. The Oakleigh shops nearby have a strong Greek culture which is lovely. I always felt safe there. Obviously it's a quiet suburb so not great for those who like some nightlife, but it would be perfect for pretty much anyone else.
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Close to Princes Hwy. Monash Uni and public transport
Cons
  • No nightlife
