We have to make a big decision by Monday to move to GC, does anyone live in coomera or pacific pines areas that can give me honest opinions on living here and if the kids go to public local schools, the rentals seem plentiful here and it's close to nerang were oh has been offered job! Thanks x

I live in Helensvale which is near those suberbs. Personally I wouldn't chose Coomera, I have a pal who hated PAC Pines and moved away, nosey neighbours, have another pal who likes it as she likes the school. There may be plenty of rentals there, ask yourself why!

Thanks it just seems hard getting a rental and we'll have to move in 3 weeks as lease is up on house and the employer wants him there ASAP, were off in the morning to go and look at areas will take a look at Helensvale , a colleague who was born on GC said arundel and ashmore or somewhere is nice to , I love we're we live now but it's in the country and not much for teenagers oh the thought of going through getting another rental makes me want to be sick, thanks for posting x

Arundel and Ashmore seem nice, I had a look when I first got here, actually stayed at Ashmore caravan park initially! I settled on Helensvale due to the school for my son. Maybe check out Oxenford and Pimpama too as they're close to M1. I would choose Pac Pines over Coomera. Good luck. Maybe just get 6 month lease just in case you don't like where you end up! Don't envy you all the upheaval!

Hi

We live in on Oxenford on the Saltwater estate, nice quite some nice houses around depends what you want, as above would choose Pac pines over Coomera or Upper Coomera. You also have Maudsland which has some nice areas. Sorry can not help with schools mine go to a small private school.

What did you choose in the end? We moved to Pac Pines in July and love it. The kids go to Pac Pines Primary and they absolutely love it (they went to a small, church aided primary in the UK).

 

Have you settled well?


Moved to Gold Coast July 2014!
