The beaches of the Garden Route and West Coast are sprinkled with modern villas and up risings as well as traditional houses with impressive views on massive seaside plots. Towns such as Strand offer more modern developments while areas along the Seaboard such as Seapoint and Camps Bay offer traditional houses and apartments that come with a price worthy of perfect sunsets.

The towns found along the Garden Route and the Overberg are where those who live in Cape Town go on holiday in search of an even more laid-back getaway. Boasting popular holiday destinations such as Knysna, Mossel Bay, Wildnerness and Pringle Bay, the Garden Route undergoes little development with property being priced comparatively to the amount of privacy and seclusion you’re after.

These homes offer the ideal seaside living while still being close enough to commute to the centre of Cape Town for work. Those towns on the cusp of the city centre such as Table View and Melkbosstrand are continuously undergoing development which keeps the property on offer in these areas incredibly varied to suit the pocket of anyone in search of a bit of beach sand and suburbia beneath their feet.
