    Mona Vale and commute to city

    Hi Everyone We are currently renting in Pymble and have been here a year and a half, we are now looking for a new rental and not much coming up in our area. We have now seen a house in Mona Vale that we love, we have to boys 2 and 4 and this house has great ocean views (not much garden compared to now) and we would be close to the beach which my boys would love. Question is how bearable is that commute to the city my husband works in Alexandria, (and before anyone suggest Eastern suburbs we just like North shore we seem to get a bit more for money). I just want to know pros and cons of living near beach. we have settled in Pymble and have made friends but we do spend a lot of time up and down that MOna vale road to the beaches so just wondered if should go for it. Any thoughts would be appreciated cheers

    Pre school advice

    hi We are moving to west pymble this weekend, and I need to start looking at pre schools/kindergartens for my three year old he is a July birthday. I know there is a KU pre school very close by to us, just wondered what these settings are like, or anyone has children at the one in west pymble or others who can let me know what they are like. Also any other experience or knowledge of any other pre schools in the area would be great Thank you Jo

    Sun screen advice please

    Hi all We have been here three weeks and I have been using our sun cream from uk - nivea factor 50 on my boys, starting to look to buy some here and I can't seem to find anything over factor 30, is this the highest you can get here? Both my boys are fair skinned and I want to make sure they are well protected from the lovely Aussie sunshine!

    Hi all We are moving to Sydney in September, my husband will be working in Alexandria. so far we have been looking at maroubra, cougee, bondi areas to rent but have heard recently that these can be a bit dodgy, especially Maroubra due to commission housing - is this the case? maroubra just seems so lovely and we now have been put off the eastern suburbs:( we have two boys, one and three years old so we want to be near good schools, parks etc. have been told lower north shore might be better? Any thoughts, advice would be great - thankyou
