I have lived here for 5 years and love it. Convenient to everything ie two shopping centres (Warwick Grove, Kingsway), local shopping centre, kingsway medical centre, Kingsway sport complex. Just 4 train stations to Perth CBD or 15 min drive. 15 min to Hillary etc. Affordable suburb. What else you will ask for.
I've rented there in the past on Addington Way and the only hassle I had was the very rare golf ball making it over the fence. If the house prices were more reasonable for a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 car port property I might have bought there as Kingsway Shopping Centre is a major bus junction point and there are multiple buses straight to nearby train stations and to Perth CBD.
