Nestled in the heart of the Highveld, Gauteng is the smallest province in South Africa. Comprising only 14% of the nation’s land area, the province contains the highly urbanized and expansive cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg.
Situated in the south western corner of South Africa, the Western Cape is one of the country’s most popular locations and destinations. Boasting the exquisite allure of the Winelands, the Karoo and the splendour of the Garden Route, the province also houses Cape Town – the Mother City – a haven for its culturally practised and tasteful residents.
Also known as the Garden province as a result of its coastal sub-tropical climate, KwaZulu-Natal has always been one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations. While the coastline is dotted with picturesque small towns, the province’s interior consists mainly of inspiring and spectacular rolling hills.
The Eastern Cape includes such diverse landscapes – from the arid Karoo to the wet and windy Grahamstown – that any person can find their nirvana here. This province also boasts South Africa’s only snow skiing resort, which is situated in the Southern Drakensberg.
With Bloemfontein as its capital city, the Free State is found in the very heart of South Africa. The lovely climate and fertile land have made the province a thriving agricultural community. The Free State’s chief tourist attraction is the Golden Gate Highlands National Park nestled in the foothills of the breathtaking Maluti Mountains.
Meaning literally “the place where the sun rises”, Mpumalanga is divided into scenic highveld and savannah lowveld. Main attractions in the province include the Kruger National Park, the Sudwala Caves and the Blyde River Canyon.
As the northernmost province in South Africa, Limpopo shares its borders with Botswana on the west, Mozambique on the east and Zimbabwe in the north. Limpopo’s proximity to these African countries has gifted it with the beauty and contrasting landscapes that has made it a favourite among travellers and adventure seekers.
The North West province is a picture of authentic African bushveldt beauty that encourages adventure. From the quiet beauty of the Pilansberg Nature Reserve to the bold decadence of Sun City, the North West offers both culture and comfort.
The Northern Cape is the biggest and most sparsely populated province in South Africa, dominated by the Karoo Basin. This natural gem includes the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, the Augrabies Falls as well as the famous Namaqualand region.

All privately owned properties on our website have floor plans in the main centers. Just imagine if you were a buyer and could get an idea of the layout of a property even before visiting the home! Not only will the buyer get an idea of how big the property is, but he or she will also get the chance to view the sizes of the individual rooms and see where they might want to add or remove a wall. The buyer will also have the opportunity to compare the sizes and asking prices of different properties per square meter. Lastly, the floor plan gives the prospective buyer a clear understanding of how the property looks as the arrows on the floor plan show from which angle each photo was taken. The buyer now gets a real feel for the property and can immediately see if this is what they were looking for. This means that only serious buyers will make offers on your property.
On top of the unlimited photos and the added floor plan, we also offer you a large client base where alerts are sent out to buyers who are looking for a property like yours. Alerts are sent to prospective buyers who have indicated that they are interested in property in a specific area at a specific price range.

The property has one garage and a lockable carport (that is used by the guests). The exterior is a mixture of painted brick and vermont planking. The property has ADS security but that is probably an overkill as Eureka Park is a very safe area. The lagoon is a very short walk and the main beach is just down the road - close enough for the sounds of the sea.
We have completed the holiday flat and the income from it is currently averaging R6,000 per month but it is still early days and we expect the occupancy to increase substantially – we are fully booked already from mid-November until mid-January. Average income is R900 per day. Having established and run a very successful four-star Guest House in Colesberg for many years, before retiring to Great Brak River, we have advertised the facility on the popular accommodation websites that generated a lot of business for us. This passive income will make an attractive investment for a retired couple and the management of the accommodation is very simple.
Alternatively, the flat can again be incorporated into the main house and there would then be 3 (or 4) bedrooms with 3 bathrooms, two kitchens and two lounges (or one and a separate dining room) as well as the patio and laundry. The renovations cost about R300,000 (and much personal sweat) whilst the furniture and fittings added about R50,000. Most of the work was done by myself or under my supervision and we paid cash for everything, including the legal and transfer costs.
The holiday flat comprises of two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a lounge (with the full DStv) and well equipped kitchen in the middle. Outside is a private (2.4m latte fencing all round) garden, which has been secured for pets, and a built in braai. The finishes are of a high standard and we spent a considerable amount of capital on them. The furniture, linen and appliances are included in the sale. There is an ADT alarm system and the flat has its own new 150l geyser.
In our section, we built an enclosed patio, with a built in braai and laundry and besides these we have a bathroom, en-suite, and a large study (or second bedroom), a lounge and well equipped kitchen with a built in oven. Most of the cooking is done with gas and we have installed a solar charger that provides lights, cell phone and computer charging when Eskom sheds a load. There are plenty of cupboards. Our erf is one of the largest in Eureka Park and there is a good garden shaded with old established trees. Having submitted the plans, I have all the plans on AutoCad and can let you have these for a diagram of the layout. There is an ADT alarm system and new 150l geyser.
Whilst we love it here in Great Brak River and walk on the beach daily with our dog, we would like to move closer to the Cape where our family is and, being a member of the SA Brandy Foundation, would put us closer to the main brandy areas which is where my passion is.
