I have 3 kids , 2 at school.
I currently pay $950 a week in rent.

Kawana Waters is a canal estate, and like any areas, there are good streets and not so good.
Canal frontage is the dearest for rent and probably comparable with what you pay now (but I am going on Noosa prices which is where I live!), non waterfront is less or you could live in any of the other better areas for what you are paying in Sydney or less.
I am not a real fan of that other end of the coast, I love it here in leafy laid back Noosa (no traffic lights), driving always seems so frantic down the other end
Coolum or Peregian Beach (not Peregian Springs) have a nice village atmosphere and would be a 30/40min commute at busy times.
Buderim has some stunning views and would be less driving time for your DH.
Best schools imo are Mathew Flinders and St Andrews or if you are catholic, Stella Maris.

Ohh thank you!
I dont like the canal area...
I am going to look at buderim..I am a fan of older style houses not new ones..and real estate is not giving me much choice.!

Buderim is really nice, lovely "high street" as my mum calls it. And not too far from the Plaza (Myer etc, no DJ's but coming soon)
The Sunshine Coast though is a relatively new area and there are not many older style homes around, there are some but they might be harder to find!
Good luck,let me know if you need anything

personally after living in Brisbane other than the lovely beaches etc I'm disliking the coast haha limited shops, absolutely no jobs ( sisters 17 an has been job searching like crazy for 8 months an nothing) and I know Many people like this. and I hate driving 20 to a big shopping centre hahaha but that's me after living in Brisbane.
I however went to high school here and enjoyed the school

I've lived on the coast almost all my life. Feel free to PM me any questions and I'll try to help!
Personally I love it here. It's laid back and relaxed. The beaches are beautiful, lots of lovely parks. If you want bigger, better shopping the drive to Brisbane isn't too much for a day trip.
