"The Best Suburb in Perth"

City Beach is beautiful, quiet, safe, spacious and close to amenities.

Most of all, I love City Beach for the nature. A large percentage of the homes in City Beach have ocean or park views. Most homes are located on very green, attractive streets, and are only minutes away from Bold Park.

City Beach is only 15 minutes to the CBD, home to great primary schools schools and 10 minutes away from great high schools, and there are great shopping options with Floreat Forum minutes away and Karinyup under 15 minutes away.

I have lived in City Beach for 12 years, in three different streets, and we have always had great neighbors, privacy, peace and quiet. I have also lived in Cottesloe, Mount Claremont and Claremont, and City Beach is far superior. Compared to Cottesloe, City Beach is more safe, quiet and clean.

Not only is City Beach the best suburb in Perth, it is also the best value suburb in Perth.
You can buy a four bedroom house on 800sqm with ocean views for less than $2 million dollars (2012).

High rentals are being achieved for homes, and property values have performed relatively well post GFC. Our home has nearly doubled in value in the last 7 years.

"Very Nice"

Yes it is expensive, but you get what you pay for. Thats why these areas are safer than others because not "everyone" can afford to buy here. Sad but true

"Holiday Lifestyle in the City"

City Beach is a well located suburb. It offers the best of a holiday lifestyle even when you're not on holidays. The houses, streets and beach are beautiful. It's within close proximity of everything - you can't go wrong.

"Beach side suburb with great amenities but a little too expensive to buy."

8 kms west of Perth CBD, City Beach is a coastal suburb and the area which is made up of several sections and has two popular beaches, Floreat Beach and City Beach itself. Many major surf carnivals are held here and there is great surfing for all with certain sections of the beaches suitable for different levels of surfer. There are public toilets, kiosks and restaurants handy as well as children’s playgrounds. Being a major coastal centre so close the city real estate prices are extremely high with many prestige properties. Rentals too are priced at the high end of the market with supply and demand forcing these properties upward. There is plenty of shopping here and there are major shopping centres in Perth. Education wise there are pre primary, primary and secondary schools, both state and private as well as TAFE colleges and university campuses all in close proximity. There is no end of sporting facilities with venues for most sports, playing fields and of course many water sports with windsurfing and kite surfing being very popular during the summer months.
