"Quiet friendly suburb close to everything including the beach!"

A great atmosphere with views of the esplanade pines, friendly residents, short walk to the beach, renown 'snakepit' excercise facility, public transport, schools, great reserves and parks with exciting developments underway. West of military road is the place to be, with huge investment potential, and one of the last suburbs of Adelaide where you can get a nice large beach side home for well under $1 million. Homes on the North side of Wandana Terrace (Duntroon cr, Gedville tce etc) are well protected from the winds of the S/SE due to a rise in the land formation to the South of Wandana Terrace. The esplanade pines also absorb much of the winds energy. In summer the beach is amazing with warm lagoons forming in front of the wide white sandy beach. Whilst it may appear quite some distance from the rest of Adelaide it is well positioned to make use of the recent expressway completions (Port River, South Rd extension etc) for 20min run to City, 5 min into Semaphore, and 35min to the Barossa!
Pros

"Taperoo - extremely affordable living"

Like all suburbs there are pockets of Taperoo that are better than others but overall I think Taperoo is an affordable suburb with many appealing homes for retirees, investors or first home buyers.
