Nice quiet family friendly area that still so close to Frankston and Cranbourne. Minutes from the beach and freeways, you really do get the best of both worlds.
Pros
  • Close to all the freeways
  • Excellent walking tracks beautiful scenery
  • Houses keep their value
  • Plenty of fresh air
  • Good neighbors/safe
Cons
  • Lack of public transport

"Great place to live, where the suburb feels like the country"

We love Skye. With great shops nearby no matter where your home is, and trees in view no matter which estate you are in. We love that we can look out our window and have rural views. The people are friendly, traffic not congested and you can hear the roosters and other wildlife easily. The blocks of land are usually of a generous size also which gives you a little room to move. there are also some great parks around, especially the one in the Skye Valley Estate. The only con is the lack of public transport out here and the only way to get here is to catch a bus from Frankston :-(
Pros
  • Good neighbors/safe
  • Quiet/no traffic congestion
  • No noons around our area
  • Close to all the freeways
  • Excellent walking tracks beautiful scenery
  • Houses keep their value
  • Plenty of fresh air
Cons
  • Lack of public transport

"Safe, Drought Resistant, Plenty to Do suburb"

Well, we have done it. Bought a great block overlooking Golf Course and lake in front and large park in the rear. Cannot wait for the titles to be released. Purchased our block in the Medallion Precinct so we will be nicely tucked away but still close enough to be within 3 minutes bike ride to the club facilities.

Also cannot wait for extra shops to be built within next 18 months where the hotel was going to be built. These will service the suburb nicely.
Pros
  • Plenty of fresh air
  • Houses keep their value
  • Close to all the freeways
  • Excellent walking tracks beautiful scenery
Cons
  • Lack of public transport

Economist I doubt those shops will ever be built for the same reason the Hotel wasn't built.... you have bought at a really bad time and if you can at all I would advise you to pull out of the contract and rent for a while...in your pros you mention houses keep their value.... we will see in 2013 http://www.whocrashedtheeconomy.com/

"Great place to live a happy contented life"

Best part of the Sandhurst Club . Surrounded by beautiful green parks (with the recycled water we can water our gardens at any time, and day). 24 security, tennis courts, health club only walking distance away. Great safe place for the kids to play and for younger people to relax after a busy day.
