Reviews of Westbury St, St Kilda East

"Nice street but very noisy with drunk hipsters, late night parties, not suitable for families with young kids"

It’s a very nice street that’s sits so close to a lot of parks, milk bars, and Carlisle St. However after renting here with one toddler we think it’s quite a bad decision. We live in a beautiful Art Deco ground floor flat that faces the street and are very happy with the abode but not too much with the surroundings. People often dump their hard rubbish on the sidewalks especially not in front of their own properties. Neighbours often party until late nights even on weeknights. Often this wake our toddler up which is like every family with young children knows can be a nightmare. Our upstairs neighbours are very noisy, makes terrible sounds above our flat and bangs the big beautiful Art Deco entrance door every time they enter and exit. Young hipsters walking at night singing at the top of their lungs is another nuisance here. We also have a very unlucky next building neighbour who probably runs some sort of hobby or home business repairing classic cars and motorbikes and often wake me babies up around the area with their old noisy cars and Harley bikes. Maybe if you are luckier in a block of flats eg a ground floor at the end of the block not facing the street and neighbouring blocks that are not full of young late night party goers or old hipsters who can never let go of the habit and mindful neighbours, this street might be a great potential for you. But if you are very sensitive to noise and have young families, avoid this street. Oh and parking can be a nightmare, a lot of people with dedicated parking spaces refuse to park on theirs and park on the street instead.

"Easy Living - Everything at your doorstep!"

As an Investment:
As a property buyers agent at Capital Property Advisory specialising in property investing for large portfolio holders, we have seen immense growth and recommend certain streets in this area to astute investors.

As an Owner Occupier:
I personally lived in Westbury Street, St Kilda East for several years with my children and found this area an ideal location for families, couples and singles as everything is at your door step, such as trams, shops, restaurants, cafes and much more.

The famous Alma Park provides a beautifully treed walking tracks and outstanding play area’s and tree house for children.

All your shopping requirements can be met in Carlisle Street, St Kilda East with supermarkets, fruit shops, butchers, bakeries, banks, chemists, clothing and shoe shops (I recommend you take a look at Unique Shoes), several discount stores, restaurants, cafes and bars.

All transport facilities are within a short walk and I suggest you take a simple tram ride down to St Kilda beach and the wondrous environment that Acland Street, St Kilda has to offer with the highly regarded cafes, bars and restaurants. Located at that end of Acland Street is Luna Park which is a great day out for all children big and small.

"Fun but there are pitfalls"

This is a fun place to live because it's close to lots of interesting places and there are lots of things to do in the surrounding areas. It's also very close to the city, and has great tram and train access. However, my car was robbed several times and our neighbors were noisy and unfriendly. It felt to me like it was a place people didn't really want to live in for long, just a pit stop along the way to somewhere else.
