Durban – Beach meets business…
Private Property say: “Durban Central is a diverse, colourful area with lots to do. The beach is the biggest attraction and locals flock the promenade to cycle, run, surf, swim, fish or just catch some sun. There are incredibly lush parks and open spaces for locals to enjoy. The nightlife in Durban Central is exciting with numerous bars, pubs, restaurants and night clubs in close proximity to each other. As it’s name implies, Durban Central’s location makes it convenient to get to any of the other areas around Durban.”

Sandton – Work hard, play hard…then relax
According to Private Property: “Sandton is a vibrant, modern neighbourhood that contains the richest square mile in Africa. It is the business gateway into Africa for many large corporations. But Sandton is not just about big business, residents find plenty time for leisure too. World class shopping centres, and a buzzing social scene are a huge hit with the young and young at heart. Perhaps surprisingly, there is a huge amount of green space in the area that residents take advantage of to exercise or just take a breather.”

Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs – Affluent Village Feel
“The Southern Suburbs make up some of the most popular residential areas in Cape Town. With large plots of land and roomy homes, the area attracts a fairly affluent crowd. The southern suburbs are conveniently situated close to shopping facilities, the University of Cape Town, good schools such as Rondebosch Boys, Rustenberg Girls, SACS and Hershel and Bishops. Outdoor lovers revel in the wide open spaces and may sporting facilities nearby. The more artistically inclined can take advantage of the theatres and galleries located close by,” says Private Property.
