"Large blocks - family friendly"

A great location and safe for families.. just 10 minutes from Caloundra's best beaches and great local schools - close to Baringa where it has a great public primary and high school as well as the Catholic school at Unity College

"Caloundra"

I. Spent a week in Calcutta Absolute worst place I've been to. Everything is closed after 8. Metered parking in and around main street even though most shops were closed. 7day a week clinic was closed on Sunday. The Sunday street market was very overpriced. What a waste off time. Our hotel was really good

"Ok for young families"

When we moved in Caloundra West we were so happy that we are only a few minutes drive from beautiful beaches and that there is no visitors and tourists near our area. However, after having been living here for over 1 year we are looking to move this year elsewhere on Sunshine Coast because:
- young families around us are having parties, smoking/drinking, kids are constantly screaming and yelling in the backyards because their parents don`t take them to the local parks (which are right across the road), dogs bark constantly because no one walks them and poor animals are stuck in the backyard most of the time
- constant noises from aircrafts above the houses almost 24/7
- NO decent signal for Vodafone and making calls/talking on the phone is a nightmare
- small blocks allow no privacy
- overpriced rentals
- public transport stops literally near the houses!
- no decent park or wildlife where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of every day living
- too far from takeaway locations and decent supermarkets (only IGA is nearby)
I would not recommend this suburb to you unless you are a teenager or young family, it is not a peaceful area (our friends have been living there for 1 year too and said the same, they are looking to move at the end of the lease period).

Is it very noisy close to the aerodrome or everywhere? Its a big area.What part of Caloundra u referring to? What abt Baringa? Is it any better? Have you moved or still live there?

it does get noisy, lots of small aircrafts buzzing around on sunny days and they are quite loud... I live in Baringa, it is 5 mins drive from the aerodrome... Baringa is overpriced, blocks are small, neighbors are not too friendly (I guess because the area is relatively new?), and also I heard there were break-ins in Baringa (there is a website where the concrete spots are highlighted where the crimes occurred). Also, multiple people told me when I moved in, that cats are not safe to be left outside as there is someone who catches them for unknown reason (cats never were found once they have been gone). I find the area noisy, people are snobbish, not highly intelligent or well-mannered. I am still there but will be moving elsewhere at the end of the lease for the above reasons. That is only my subjective opinion. I hope it helps.

+1 barking dogs / screaming kids. Sure, buy them and have them, but take them out and care for them and consider your neighbours. Looking to move and wondering why we left Wynnum. The surf beaches are beautiful. I will miss them.

joshbergs, you are so right! we are looking to move to GC or Brisbane. I do find it super noisy and no sense of community. Poor dogs and kids spend most of their time in the tiny backyards... so sad...

GC? Good luck and multiply your concerns by 10 lol

Aircraft noise 24/7? Maybe your hearing your TV... there are only tiny Cessna planes that do fly around, but tbh I'm surprised at how quiet majority of them are, and they operate from 8-4 during the day only... Not 24!!!

"Lovely quiet family neighbourhood"

I live in Bell Vista and it's a lovely, quiet, family friendly neighborhood. Great walking tracks/bike paths, lots of parks, easy walk to the local shops with a grocery store, tavern, hairdresser, Dr and chemist. My kids go to one of the 2 local daycare centres and love it. Everyone says hello when you pass them on the street, we know all of our neighbours by name, and it feels safe. Easy 10 min drive into Caloundra for the beach or cafes, and about 10 mins out to the highway to head to Brisbane, northern beaches, or the hinterland. Only drawback would be the relatively small block sizes. Overall a great family suburb.

"Make our wonderful home, your home"

Positive Property People are proud to call Caloundra West home. We are part of a connected village community where everything you need is right on your doorstep.
If you want to be surrounded by friendly people, pathways, parks, wildlife and nature reserves Bellvista, Bells Reach and Arbour Village is the place for you!

You will lead a relaxed lifestyle in a fast growing area of the Sunshine Coast. The population increase of this area is due to the ease of access to the Bruce Highway for a 50 minute drive south to Brisbane, a 20 minute leisurely drive to the Sunshine Coast's beautiful Hinterland or a quick 5 minute trip to put your feet in the sand of one of Caloundra's many beaches.

The convenient Bellvista Marketplace takes care of all of your needs with a Super IGA, Tavern and Bottle Shop, a Medical Centre, Chemist, Day Spa and Hairdresser, Italian Takeaway, a Bakery and of course Positive Property People. Families will relish in knowing that their children are getting a superb education at one of the Suunshine Coast's premier schools; Unity College and for the 'littlies', Bambini Early Childcare and Development Center is a short stroll around the fitness circuit to the various birds that inhabit the lakes of Bellvista's largest park.

For the tradies, you cannot get better than this! Arbour Village is the latest development of the Caloundra South area with 5+ years of construction to go, so you will rest assured that you will continuously be earning an income to enjoy life's luxuries while working just minutes from your home. On that note, affordability in this premier location is second to none with brand new homes selling for as low as $390,000, if you have any questions regarding real estate however, please do not hesitate to contact me.

You will get all of this only moments away from The Pod Cafe, where you will eat and drink while watching your kids burn their energy on Bells Reach's Award Winning Park, why would you want to live anywhere else?

I promise that you will not regret making our home your home!
