"A nice, quiet, friendly place to live"

I rented in Oakleigh East (on Dublin St) for about 2 years. It was largely a quiet area (although the early morning noise coming from the primary school did get a bit annoying!). It's a convenient location; it's close to Monash University, and Chadstone is not far away. Public transport options are many - you're near Princes Hwy with buses that will take you anywhere, and you can choose between Huntingdale and Oakleigh stations. The Oakleigh shops nearby have a strong Greek culture which is lovely. I always felt safe there. Obviously it's a quiet suburb so not great for those who like some nightlife, but it would be perfect for pretty much anyone else.
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Close to Princes Hwy. Monash Uni and public transport
Cons
  • No nightlife
