Martin and Caroline were ready to downsize and chose Movida Estate because of the variety of block sizes on offer. They love having the Swan Valley on their doorstep, as well as plenty of amenities nearby.
"We feel like we are part of a community which we really love. We are very happy."
Mary Ann works as a carer in Mundaring and her husband is employed at the abattoir in Wooroloo, so a central location with good access to their respective workplaces was important. They had identified the general area and started house hunting.
“From Movida, it’s about a 15 minutes’ drive to my work and some 25 minutes to Ronel’s work”
“It’s a very good location and this will be our first house, so we will be very excited to move in. We’re especially excited for the parks.”
William Cook and fiancé Renee Morrison
“We currently live in Lesmurdie and wanted to be closer to the city and all the shops and amenities, but we still wanted to be within easy reach of the Hills because my fiancé’s family lives there too,” he said.
“We were looking for an established unit in Midland but when we spoke to a builder and found we could get a new house with exactly what we wanted for only $20,000 more at Movida, it was the perfect solution.”
Being close to Perth Airport was also important in selecting a block, as William works as a blaster in the Pilbara and flies to and from an iron ore mine site every few weeks.
“We really like all the parks and open spaces at Movida. It will be great for us to go for rides together on our bikes, which we really enjoy,” William said.

Nearly four years after arriving in Australia from their Zambian birthplace, Daniel Koti and his wife Marjorie Kachenjela are excited about building their first home at Movida.
“We wanted to find a new location which is close to all the amenities, particularly Midland which is very established and has everything,” Daniel said.
“It’s also about 30 minutes to the City, which is good for us too.”
Amanda and Pete
After shopping around to find the perfect block, Amanda and Pete were worried as they didn’t like the ‘feel’ of any of the estates they had originally looked at.
“We were ready to give it all away. But everything happens for a reason and it was one of those times when everything just came together perfectly, at Movida,” Amanda said.
“We wanted a location between the City and the Hills. It also needed to be centrally located so I could get to places north or south when I move around with my job, which will happen in the next few years.”
“Being located on Roe Highway means we will have a high-speed major traffic link right there and will be able to easily get anywhere we want in Perth,” explained Amanda.
