"Sleepy Coastal Suburb with Strong Growth Potential"

I have owned property in this street for 10 years and have been thrilled with the capital growth and strong rental yields being achieved throughout the suburb.The residents are generally friendly ,approachable and community minded.There has been the emergence of development in recent years with some upmarket housing particularly in the locations capturing a sea view.The park in Wakelin Terrace is well maintained and there is basketball rings,tennis courts and childrens paly equipment.The community hall can also be hired for a modest fee for various group functions and community events.The coastline is rugged with minimal sand along the waterline.The water is deep and rocky but offers a premiere boat launching facility with good amenties and plentiful parking.The park across the clifftop overlooking the boating marina offers spectacular views.It is a convenient location for shops & transport and offers a family with children a quiet and central location.

ross44 I purchased land on this street about eight years ago and then proceeded to build a house on it. At first I was apprehensive about the suburb having only ever driven through it and buying in the suburb was based on my hopes that the suburb would prosper with the elimination of Port Stanvac. To get to the point, I must say that I was surprised by how quiet and safe the suburb is. The locals are some of the friendliest people I have come across and I remember being welcomed to the suburb no less than seven times by passers by when building. The local shops are quiet close and Colonades is only five minutes drive away. Having Lonsdale highway right outside the suburb makes getting down the hill a breeze and puts the city and Glenelg no further away than Happy Valley or Reynella. The coastline is rather rocky but only as far as the boat ramp and then it is quiet good swimming. My time living here has been enjoyable and with new development moving further down the coastline, O'Sullivan Beach stands as the most affordable and underrated beachside suburb down south.
