Holiday accommodation specialists in Stellenbosch


Permanent or temporary accommodation in South Africa’s premier university town – Stellenbosch – is almost always a rather tricky issue for a variety of reasons and a variety of people seeking accommodation in this second-oldest town in the country.


Typical accommodation seekers


Relevant groups who typically seek accommodation in Stellenbosch include students, university academic and support staff, the town’s non-university workforce, skilled people employed by wine farms in the immediate vicinity, property investors, visitors, tourists, and holidaymakers. Many well-heeled tourists and leisure travellers who visit or enjoy accommodation in Stellenbosch are so enamoured with the natural beauty, ambience, and gracious lifestyle.


Fine & Country South Africa’s speciality


The latter three categories are particularly important to clients of upmarket estate agencies like Fine & Country South Africa, because these are the folks who are likely to require luxury accommodation and/or the expert assistance in conducting high-end Stellenbosch property transactions.


Our Stellenbosch agents also represent property investors who purchase new developments for their excellent investment returns, as well as their capability of accommodating university tenants connected to Stellenbosch University.


Stellenbosch’s student body


Stellenbosch University has grown immensely and increased its students’ residential hostel accommodation facilities in an attempt to keep up with the number of students enrolled at the university’s five campuses, with the main campus being in Stellenbosch itself.


According to a 2017 study, a total number of 32 003 students were enrolled across all ten faculties (across all five campuses), and of these, 24 725 or 77,3% were enrolled at the main campus in Stellenbosch. 17 076 of them required private accommodation because the university’s various types of residences were full.


Additional accommodation is vital and this is where the able assistance of a Stellenbosch-based Fine & Country agent is invaluable to property investors, who recognise the opportunity to acquire sectional title developments, such as apartment blocks, which offer accommodation for which the demand is enormous and unlikely to diminish in the future.


Holidaymakers and tourists


Nothing sells a town or its properties as quickly as does a pleasing personal experience. Many well-heeled tourists and leisure travellers who visit and enjoy accommodation and the host of other delights offered by Stellenbosch are totally captured and enamoured by this pretty town.


Their enchantment is so all-encompassing that they cannot wait to move to Stellenbosch or own a holiday home here – a holiday property which they can make available to other holiday tenants when not personally occupied. At this time of year (late November/early December), it’s not particularly easy to find holiday accommodation in Stellenbosch, because of the town’s own popularity and that of the immediately surrounding areas, as well as a host of holiday attractions.


Holiday attractions and activities


Some of these attractions include the following:


  • Cape Winelands tours and independent visits to one’s wine estates of choice for wine tastings and purchases.


The beautiful white sandy beaches of the Strand and Gordon’s Bay, as well as the mighty mountains surrounding Stellenbosch – Simonsberg, die Twee Pieke in Jonkershoek, Papegaaiberg, and Stellenbosch Mountain.


  • Hiking, walking, and mountain climbing.


  • Picking strawberries, which you buy and take away freshly hand-picked.


  • Visit art galleries.


  • View historic buildings, especially the iconic Cape Dutch and Victorian architectural homes.


  • Dining out – restaurants, eateries, and pop-up food and wine venues galore.


  • Farmers’ and indoor and outdoor markets.


These are only a few activities and attractions which make Stellenbosch such a sought-after residential and holiday centre, from which one can visit and tour other areas of the Western Cape, using Stellenbosch as a base when on holiday. With a Fine & Country South Africa agent beside you, explore the excellent investment accommodation opportunities in Stellenbosch.
