Reviews of Portland Crescent, Maroubra

"Not the best street, far from it"

I grew up here with my Grandmother and watched many dehumanising inhuman things happen around me, hostage situations, drug dealing, guns, even a bloke who set his unit on fire trying to murder everyone. Largely public housing development, where most of Maroubras bad name comes from.

"I love living here!"

We were apprehensive about purchasing our property with government housing in the area. We have had no problems in the 4 years thus far .It is a level walk to the beach and shops across the road. The whole South Maroubra area is a changing landscape. We have subsequently started a family and love Maroubra.

"Affordable changing family street"

I lived in Portland Crescent in a 3 be town house for years, that was 4 years ago. We didn't find it a problem. You are in the middle of housing commission which houses eldery as well as families. There are families that are unsavoury and I did hear rows on a monthly basis. The Police drove through regularly and the council does regular drive throughs to pick up any dumped rubbish/furniture. The up side is that it is affordable beachside living. Our property went up about $100K in 3 years. We bought into the area with the view that it has to improve as it is such a central beach and I'm sure that it will over time, but the commission housing is not going anywhere for long time so progress will be slow. Maroubra school wasn't ideal either, I viewed it and decided not to send my kids there due to the other families that went there. Snap up a bargin, use the beach and central location but have security on your home and park your car off street and look to get into the little catholic school if you can. Alternatively cross the bridge as we did as it was the best decision we made! Very family oriented, better beaches, no parking issues! loving Narraweena! :)
