It will depend on your budget basically. The more expensive areas are Takapuna, Milford, Browns Bay (and others close by) and the cheaper ones tend to be farther away from the beaches. We live in Bayview which is on the outskirts of Glenfield and we're about 10 minutes from the nearest beach but the house prices are much lower. There's a couple of good primary schools in the area too.

Thanks Batty
The thought of being only ten minutes to the beach and less than a hour to central Auckland seems great. I will be renting at first for a while untill i find the right area to live in with good schools then i will think about buying.
Also is there any subberbs that i should stay clear of for any reason around North Shore.
Thank you

Thank you
Birkdale would be the least 'salubrious' but tbh I don't really know why. I don't know it very well - even though it's less than 10 minutes away
