Apartment hunting by sugarmuser

Apartment hunting

Doing some leg work to see where we want to retire. This is Main beach, Gold Coast.
It’s a big decision to make isn’t it

Not a bad spot to look at!! Actually, if you want a unit it would be a super spot - walking distance to so many things but not in the middle of the madness. The only small problem is that it can be hard to get to in peak hour... :)

@kjarn yes, our final destination

@robz Neil will have to travel to Brissy for a few years. Main beach seems to be a little bit quieter than Broadbeach or Burleigh

Looks like a very nice area

@sugarmuser That's very true - the only problem is that it basically only has 2 entry roads and at peak hours it gets very busy and can take a little while to actually get into Main Beach. It's a beautiful spot though.
Did you know there is an extension of the M1 being planned - or more properly an added alternative. It's called the Coomera Connector - I don't know if that will make any difference to Neil's commuting. There's also a couple of new rail stations being added - Pimpama Helensvale North and Merrimac. The light rail joins the heavy rail at Helensvale and there is a light rail station at the entrance to Main Beach. :)

@robz yes, I knew about these. They need to extend the bridge leading into main beach.

@koalagardens Neil isn’t retiring yet, but he intends to commute to Brissy for the last five years. He still has 10years to go, if he makes it. Concreting puts a lot of strain on the body. My job is to keep healthy, I have had a few healthy issues along the way. Neil has worked a lot of hours, he worked over 70 hours a week for many years.

@jernst1779 for the right price :)
