"If only it wasn't so damn expensive."

What a great area to live (if you can afford it) I never got tired of driving along Beaconsfield Parade to get home despite the 55min drive out to work. Can't go past The Local pub at the end of bay street for a quiet pint in the week or to watch sport on the large tv. Easy access to the city. Do get a lot of road noise quite early in the morning though. Very annoying if yr not used to it.

"Great Location but a bit noisy"

Pickles Street in Port Melbourne is one of the main streets in the suburb. It connects the northern end of Bay Street (the Crockford St end) to the beautiful Beaconsfield Parade, and separates Port Melbourne from Albert Park. It terms of location, obviously most streets in port melbourne rate through the roof being so close to the beach and so close to the city.

Pickles Street is however is a very big thoroughfare for traffic as it is a faster alternative to driving down Bay Street. This makes noise levels in the street quite high, and you always get motorcycles hooning down the street.

Some nice trees and greenery line the street, and there some very stylish apartment complexes on the corner of Rouse St. Some smaller townhouses could use some redevelopment in certain parts, and would probably make a great investment as a fixer-upper.

Finally the nightlife in the immediate area is fantastic, with all the major bars and clubs are within walking distance such as The Pier Hotel, The London Hotel, Ocean Blue Nightclub and Bar and the all the pubs on Bay Street are so close.

Overall, great location but a bit noisy.
