"Peets Paradise...care when investing."

Lived here for 5 years.....poor investment choice.
Peet promised visions of grandeur but failed miserably in most areas. Woolworths were planned to anchor the shopping centre at the foreshore surrounded by boutique shops....pulled out and still no shops.
Primary school planned near medical centre ......still waiting after 7 years....highly unlikely as Alkimos Vista will probably get a primary school first and this is only in the early stages of development.
Poor upkeep and maintenance.....just check out the South facing wall along Shorehaven Blvd which is currently the main street linking Marmion Ave to the beach...it's cracked, paint and render flaking and falling off....despite three years of so called tials and expertise involvement to find a solution the wall is worsening and an eyesore. Still no solution and this could be delayed for many more years before any rectification is carried out....poor developer response to All valid complaints.
I could go on and on but I won't...as I said this was a very poor investment choice for me and one that I regret daily.
Do your research and compare neighbouring suburbs closely.. Areas like Eden Beach and Jindee may be a lot better investment choice.
I wish I read reviews warning me against buying in Shorehaven at the time I was buying. My address would certainly be elsewhere....
I know many people that have sold out and left Shorehaven with big losses and the reasons were not only poor market conditions!

You have been warned

"Sooooo quiet!"

I have visited Alkimos a few times over the last month for work. It is miles and miles away, but it looks great with all the new houses and you can sense the beach is just 'over there'. The new shops are being built so soon there will be Big W and others specialty stores in the area. In the meantime there is the new Yanchep Central just up the road, which I was quite surprised to see. On one occasion I was up there in the evening and the silence was just overwhelming! Something those of us living closer to the city miss is the absence of sound and the great starry sky! If you work in the area or don't mind traveling then Alkimos might be the place for you - sadly I had to go home again!
Pros
  • Peace and quiet!
  • Beachside suburb
  • Brand new suburb
  • Only 5mins from local shopping centre.
Cons
  • Distance from almost anywhere!

"A new surburb, lots of potential and growth. Very exciting."

We have built in Shorehaven. Love it so far. It's about 5mins from Shopping and services in Butler and about 10mins to Clarkson. The developer is really getting alot done and the suburb is looking great so far. We are very excited to see Shorehaven grow. The future plans look wonderful. It's classed as a private suburb so there is no homeswest housing which we were pleased to hear about.
Pros
  • Brand new suburb
  • Only 5mins from local shopping centre.
  • Beachside suburb
Cons
  • No school yet...but plans to come in the next 12mths
