The Western Cape is not the largest or even the most populated South African province. That said, when it comes to raw and unfettered beauty, it is arguably one of the most stunning places on the continent, if not in the world. It is no wonder, then, that millions of international tourists make their way to this remarkable location each year, feeding our local economy. If you are considering a move to the Western Cape and are seeking a luxury property to rent there, then it may be the best decision you have ever made. There are countless reasons to move to the province, and we will focus on five.


  1. It is any South African’s dream


Semigration trends are currently proving what we all know to be true – South Africans love the Western Cape. Gauteng residents, in particular, seem to be relocating to the Western Cape in large numbers. This trend is now made possible due to remote working, which allows people from all over the country to move to regions usually reserved for retirees and holidaymakers alone. The Cape’s allure lies in the fact that it has so much to offer in terms of lifestyle benefits. Finding a great property to rent, no matter one’s needs, is highly likely. Stunning neighbourhoods, better safety, and top schools are all draws for families seeking a change.


  1. A world-famous coastline


Of all four coastal provinces, the Western Cape’s coastline is the longest, spanning over 1 000 km. The province is also bordered by two oceans, the Atlantic and Indian, with long stretches of wild shorelines. A scenic trip along the Garden Route displays impressive sandy beaches, tranquil lagoons and lakes, rocky outcrops and flowering slopes, and small fishing villages. Those who wish to find a property to rent overlooking a seascape will be happy to know that there are plenty of options available on the market.


  1. Wining and dining are without comparison


Due to its multicultural heritage, the region is known for some exciting cuisine. Homemade Cape Malay dishes with warm spices and sweet notes are often the stars of the show, but there is no lack of fine-dining establishments for those who want to eat out. From the famous five-star restaurants to delicious street food like gatsbies, your stomach will always be satisfied. One cannot forget, of course, the Cape Winelands’ vineyards that soak up the sun all-year-round and produce some of the most exquisite wines in the world. Wine tasting in the area is a leisure activity that tourists from across the globe enjoy, and visitors cannot get enough of the wine routes. Places such as Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek, and Worcester are ideal for finding a property to rent if you enjoy this aspect of Cape culture.


  1. Ideal for those who love nature


While the winelands and coastline are major perks of living there, many do not realise what a paradise the region is in terms of wildlife and nature. There are various animal sanctuaries that protect wildlife, nature conservations and reserves, and national parks that one can visit. If you love mountains, beautiful hiking trails, and enjoying South Africa’s untouched fauna and flora, then this is the best place to find a leisure property to rent.


  1. The architecture is fascinating


The province is known for unparalleled diversity, not just in terms of people, culture, art, and food, but when it comes to architecture too. From traditional Cape Dutch manors to high-rise luxury apartments that overlook Cape Town’s nightlife, there will be a property to rent suited to your requirements.
