    Hi all

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but I was hoping for some collective forum advice.

    Looks like I'll be moving to the Gold Coast (Southport) for work next yr (from Brisbane).
    Can anyone recommend areas suitable for a young family (with one kid) to rent?
    Thanks!

    Rule of thumb for families is anywhere that's not surfers paradise is OK- concentration of posers and spivs there is 31.2% higher than elsewhere on GC ........

    Broadbeach and Main Beach are great combination of easy commute, nice atmosphere if you want somewhere near beach.

    Good luck, Wal

    What's your budget?

    I think mermaid waters is great to consider if you are after a house close to beach and close to Pacific Fair for shopping.

    And do you prefer a house or apartment?

    Thanks
    I'd prefer a house, but wouldnt rule out an apartment
    I haven't thought of a budget yet, < 500/wk?
    Any comments on Labrador? (the suburb)

    I 'll drive around there sometime soon but wanted to ask you guys first

    I hear that Labrador is generally quite pet friendly.

    Yeah- check out Labrador (haven't spent much time there but should be cheaper than Broadbeach etc)- also some of the housing inland has some nice views and family friendly ie Benowa/ Biggera waters
