"Beautiful place to live!"

Beautiful place, great beaches and wide streets. Almost feels like a holiday destination, yet part of Greater Perth. Very safe, beautiful sunset, greenery and parks. Snap before its too late.

"A perfect balance"

Waikiki is a beautiful place, especially within it's estates (Harrington Waters). This suburb has a relatively new primary school- Waikiki primary as well as a highly reputable, friendly and community focused school, South Coast Baptist College, which also has well recognised early learning childcare centre. My 6 years of experience in Waikiki has brought me a great lifestyle, near to the beach, close to parks, friendly neighbors and great church community. this suburb seems to have a perfect balance of relaxation, work, proximity, beach, restaurants, transport links and family and friends. A humble place, with much room to grow.
Pros
  • Harrington waters estate, beautiful, central and friendly
  • Very friendly
  • Good value for money
Cons
  • Doesn't have a central cafe strip

"Very Cheap"

Cheap houses, i think it all depends on what you like. If your a city person, Waikiki is probably not for you as it is about 50km from the city. But if your a beach person, hurry up and get in before its too late!

"Harrington Waters Estate"

Waikiki Primary School right on your door step, which is quickly getting a good name for high quality education and other activities. Great parks and play areas for young children, and a scenic lake. While still having other benefits like being walking distance to Warnbro Train Station and main roads. Of course, great beaches and fishing are just 5 minutes away.
Pros
  • Our whole family loves Waikiki (Harrington Waters)
  • Good value for money
  • Very friendly
  • Close to award winning beach
  • Quiet
  • Harrington waters estate, beautiful, central and friendly

"Simply the best... better than all the rest..."

Having lived in three other areas in WA, I found that Waikiki simply has it all.

Yes it is quite far from Perth City but then should that affect a rating of a place. I dont think so.

West of Read looks the better part and close to the beach is suuuuuuuuper

The pros:

- It is quiet
- It is scenic
- Family friendly - my children love it. My 3 year old did not go into the sea for until we came to the Waikiki area, now he loves running in.
- Some nice local shops but nothing too big
- Ease of parking throughout
- Good property prices
- Excellent local childcare and education facilities

Cons
- Not a huge amount of extra curricilar activities / softplays etc but Rockingham is close enough.

Sweeeeeeeeeeet

Happy1_1
Happy1_1 I agree chogger, the distance to the city shouldnt affect the rating of a suburb. We live in Mullaloo which is also a beach side suburb 20km from the city, and people who live in crappy areas like Mirrabooka and Balga have actually said to me that their suburb is better than mine because they are 5 km closer to the city and that their house will be more expensive than mine in the future because they are closer to the city.....LOL. Despite the fact the Mirrabooka was named the "crime hot spot" suburb of Perth and the "dole blugger" capital of Perth. The distance to the city shouldnt affect the ratings but unfortunatly it does :(

"Cross Read St and choose Beach side of Waikiki!"

If your making a decision on living in Waikiki take my advice...and the Real estate professionals advice and choose BEACH side of Waikiki. That means anything Beach side of Read St. This is where the quality living is! and you can guarantee you will always get a great return on your investment. Harrington waters is nice however you are one step up in quality and stature as soon as you cross Read St.
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Close to award winning beach

"Beachside living at it's BEST !!!!"

Only the lucky ones get to live in Hilda Rd, Waikiki. Nice wide street with big block sizes. Even at the furthest point in the street you are located just a short walk to one of the best beaches on the west coast. Warnbro Sound has won the best natural beach awards several times and looks like continuing to do so. There is nothing like walking along this beach in the early morning, peaceful and quiet with crystal clear water. No 6 Hilda Rd is set high up with magnificent views towards Mandurah and back towards Penguin Island. It's just a short drive to the train station which will get you to perth in around 35 minutes. This is the idylic beachside lifestyle yet still close to Perth if needed. With the planned developments in Rockingham this area is hopefully set to get some good price rises in the future. Similar properties further north on the coast are worth three times as much or more.
