    Hi,

    I am thinking to buy a coastal house, which we can use for family holiday house or use for airbnb.

    Does anyone recommend any suburbs?

    Can't go past Glenelg. tram and all for BnB. Glengowrie is a good option also. Marino Rocks is fanstastic and the train access is good.

    Port Noarlunga is awesome - I live 1 hour away but will drive past closer beaches to go here.

    I used to live in Glengowrie, yes, it is a great suburb. best return so far compared to other suburbs we bought.

    yes, I was thinking port Noarlunga and maslins too. also thinking about victor harbour, Normanville, robe... too many coastal suburbs in SA.

    We want to use it for family gate away for school holiday or public holidays. For majority times, we will use it for airbnb. Only want to spend less than 400K on it:).

    not sure which ones are the best options...

    Personally would prefer to buy in strongest investment location.
    Then hire airbnb at the locations I want to holiday.
    Not try and mix them both and gives flexibility.

    I get the idea of having holiday shack is great especially for young family
    But so would the airbnbs you hire...

    How far are you willing to travel? My family has a holiday house 3 hours from Adelaide over on the York Peninsula, owned since the 1980's. Pristine stretch of coastline with excellent fishing and safe swimming for children strait in front of the shack, and just a 5 min drive to a surfing break, or a reef for scuba-diving to get cray fish/Abalone. Absolute water-front properties can still be bought for under $400k. Feel free to private message me if you want details.

    But, I agree with @Brady, capital growth that far form Adelaide will be non existent, and there are already lots of holiday rentals available in the area (so you'll probably only get it booked out on long weekends and summer school holidays- which is when you'll be wanting to use it yourself). So, no good for investment but great for family holidays.

    Ponda? Do you mean the well known surf break 'Ponde' at Pondalowie Bay, in the Innes National Park? Our shack is about 45 minute drive from there.

    The parents bought it for $30k, passed it on to the kids with strict instructions that it is never to be sold and to be passed onto the grandkids one day. Good times.

    Haha yes I went with Pondi at first and edited to Ponda only due to spelling of Pondalowie - only said it never typed :)

    Was trying to figure out where your shack was, going on nearby surf breaks...

    Bingo

    Because a tractor is needed to launch a boat strait off the sand it has remained a very small fishing village, it's awesome!

    Adelaide market starting to heat up with low interest rates, good returns and interstate investors.

    Just sold one of my properties in Christie Downs. Had 5 offers after the first open, 3 locals, one investor from Sydney and one from Melbourne.

    Got just over $300k for it. The Melbourne investor was the highest bidder, but by only a couple of grand. I ended up choosing to sell it to a local family.

It seems that the levelling out of property price rises hasn’t deterred celebrities from investment properties. Nicole has bought her fifth apartment in a complex in Milsons Point in Sydney. This article explains why she may have done that.
