Investment Property Garden Route

The Garden Route’s investment and estate properties


Different people love or dislike different things in life, which is great, because the very diversity of human beings’ likes and dislikes is what makes people and life interesting. There’s always something unique on offer for each person, as well as his or her preferences and purposes.


Nevertheless, there are very few, if any, people who don’t love a beautiful garden, even if they are not enthusiastic gardeners in their own right. Verdant, green, or interesting and indigenous, glorious gardens in all their diverse guises are part and parcel of the equally diverse South Africans, their tastes, and their lifestyles.


One glorious, giant garden


Consequently, it’s no wonder that one of this country’s most beautiful, natural, and unspoiled coastal regions is known as the Garden Route. The name itself exemplifies this lovely, scenic route, which is akin to an immense garden, created by giant gardeners, since it runs from Mossel Bay in the south-western Cape to the Storms River in the south-eastern Cape.


Others claim that the Garden Route actually begins just outside Cape Town, which is some 384 km from Mossel Bay, while still others feel that the route ends about 165 km further to the east, in the Eastern Cape city of Port Elizabeth.


Worthy of its name and desirable status


In fact, it’s really no matter exactly at which point your Garden Route begins and ends, because it’s safe to say that it is a magnificent stretch of South African coastline, spanning approximately 300 km (according to the first version above) and is worthy of its name.


It is a lengthy route and a major South African scenic attraction for holidaymakers, tourists, and discerning residents who long for a laid-back lifestyle, ideally in a Garden Route estate that offers the myriad of benefits of carefree, well-managed, estate living. The Garden Route is also a clear favourite amongst astute property investors who believe in location, location, and location – the deserved mantra of wise and successful property and estate living investors.


This remarkable route is equally deserving of its desirable status and reputation for offering exceptionally sought-after properties. Its diverse appeal is rooted in its natural beauty, stunning landscapes, enormous diversity of vegetation, and breathtaking sea views over the expanse of the iconic Indian Ocean waters.

A need for able assistance


Unless you have the able assistance of an experienced and specialised property expert who is well versed in the pros and cons of estate living along the expanse of the Garden Route, you’re faced with an immense and tricky task as a property investor.


As a property investor or prospective resident, your challenges may not be those that are directly linked to the location, but are rather likely to be related to being unfamiliar with a lengthy route and region, varied living and lifestyle conditions in its towns and estates, and actually getting access to suitable, upmarket estates with sound investment potential.
