We lived in Wattle Downs for 3 weeks when we got here.... thats right next to Wattle Cove. The actual area is nice, but if you look on the map you will see its surrounded by some not so nice areas, if you drive through them you will see exactly what I mean! We had a 4 bedroom one storey house there for 3 weeks, there was glass on the carpet so obviously had been broken into at some time... none of the neighbours would speak to us either, and some families seemed to have several people living in their garages. We had our container due to arrive so I went on a mission to find somewhere more suitable for us to live and found Beachlands and Maraetai and fell in love with the area. Good luck anyway!!

Right next to Mangre which is not so nice, don't buy until you find out all about it. Go and buy some local papers or free papers rent there for a couple of weeks, don't rush in houses are not flying out of the door as before.

Hey it is only you and your family who can decide what is for you guys, one mans poison is another mans champagne!

Totally my personal opinion is that I would not bring my kids up over there, I am sure I have read a post on here from someone who did live there, try and search for it! It is next to Weymouth so search for that also.

Good luck what ever you do!

My sister lives in Wattle Cove with her young family and I think its lovely. Yes its surrounded by less attrctive areas but being out on a peninsula it is quite isolated. Her neighours are amazing with fri bbq/drinks most weeks and sometimes volleyball/boules comp on the beach.

But as said one's cup of tea may be another's poison!!

I prefer living in the city!!!
