Smile PACIFIC PINES!!! ANY COMMENTS PLEASE??

Hi

I am looking at Pacific Pines for moving too when we get our visa.

Any comments on this suburb or other surrounding suburbs would be greatly appreciated.

I have 3 daughters, aged 11, 9 and 9months along with myself and hubby.

Any info on houses, schooling etc would be fantastic.

Thanks
Mandy

We have lived at Pacific Pines for the last 5 months and love it. We bought some land in February 2007 (1000 sq) and finished building on it in January 2008. Its close to everywhere and idea for families. If you need any further information please let me know.

Thanks for that.

Is it cheaper to buy land and build your own house?

My hubby a builder so he would build most of it for us?

Thanks, Mandy

Im not sure if it is any cheaper especially with the cost of land being so expensive now, however you do get exactly what you want. The average size block of land now is 600 sq and costs approximately $260k.

pac pines is a great family area. it has a small shopping centre that is just about to expand, a community centre, tennis courts, footie pitch, football pitches and a local football team for kids.
2 skateparks, plenty of schools, parks cricket pitch, tavern, too many things to list really. only one part of pac pines is next to the motorway and that 12 years old. the new builds are nowhere near the motorway. its 15 mins to the nearest bech and about 25 mins on a good day to surfers.
here are some photos
