"Blend of beauty and snobbiness."

Vincentia definitely has a tight-nit community feel which is fine in all other areas besides when it comes to tourists and new renters/buyers. Like anywhere, the Shoalhaven in general is not willing to share their beautiful landscapes with any newcomers. Plenty of rich, older people live here and successful professionals with teenage kids. The teenagers in Vincentia however are much less than perfect with Vincentia High School alone being one of the roughest in the Shoalhaven.

If you can even afford to touch a house in Vincentia, then live there. But the price to buy is out of this world.
Pros
  • Beautiful scenery.
  • Surf Culture.
  • Nice places to eat out.
Cons
  • Snobbish locals.
  • Rough high school.
  • Too expensive.

"Unforgetable Vincentia."

We chose Vincentia as our escape from the "big smoke" . Beautiful beaches with white sands,on a bay 8 times the size of Sydney harbour and close to Booderee National Park.
And why not live with a view across the bay to a lighthouse and an island?
Pros
  • Quiet, clean and beautiful.

"nearly as good as"

Nice suburb with older style houses many of which are undergoing renovation and refurbishment. Short distance to boat ramp and beaches. Quiet and safe but a bit dull so it's not recommended for singles or couples. Nearby Sanctuary Point offers better value and has more on offer in all areas of rating.
