Here You Can Experience that Illusive Work-life Balance We All Seek 

We believe the days of people visiting for just a holiday during the summer months is a thing of the pastOf course, we will continue to welcome tourists to our shores each summer but many across South Africa and abroad are eyeing the area with a view to living permanently here. The world has changed and with it have the perceptions of a commute, having to live close to work.


Across the world people have woken up to the fact that they are no longer tied to the traditional office working lifestyles, and property enquiries have soared. 


Why not live at your holiday destination all year round? This is the trend. Fueled by concern about the virus and world economic problems, people want to invest in a home that is suitable to work from, all year round. Most importantly, they can experience that illusive work-life balance we all seek.
