Western Cape

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.

KwaZulu-Natal

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.

Eastern Cape

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.

Free State

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.

Mpumalanga

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.

Limpopo

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.

North West

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.

Northern Cape

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.

0% Commission *

MyRoof does not charge any commission to sell your property online. What we mean with no commission is exactly that – no fees are ever payable to us at any stage for the FREE listing option. As we do not charge commission, you can accept a lower offer but still get the same amount of money in your pocket. This will result in more interested buyers in your property.

Unlimited Photos *

You may upload as many photos as you wish onto our website. This will help you in selling your property faster. The more photos, the better idea a buyer gets of your property. Remember that photos can give the buyer a desire to own your property! You can also add the best things your property has to offer on the extra notes section. Buyers enjoy looking at the additional notes to make a decision on whether to view the property or not

Floor plans

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.

Alerts *

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. Alerts will also be sent out should you lower your asking price or arrange a show day with us. This has been found to work well to communicate with many potential buyers at once. And it also keeps buyers interested in your property!

Until sold

We will keep your property on our website until the day it is sold – whether this will take a day or a year. MyRoof has hundreds of thousands of property buyers and send out tens of thousands of alerts daily to keep these buyers updated on new properties they might be interested in buying. Don’t worry if you’ve heard that selling your property is difficult because you are in our capable hands – this is what we do, all day, every day. Our system has been proven to work by many satisfied sellers like you – all of this at no cost to you!

Natural Wonders at Willow Acres

Life is…there are so many adjectives or adjectival phrases that could fill that space. “Beautiful”. “Complicated”. “Stressful at the best of times”. Given that it’s heading to “that” time of year, I choose to embrace this last description. I was at Menlyn mall today, and I literally had to fight my way through the molasses, the faceless mass of people seeming to never end, regardless of which way I turned to try and find the road less taken – or in this case, the escalator that didn’t have a screaming kid on it. I understand that it’s a difficult time of year – you feel that may need to please everyone – your family, your friends, your in-laws – with the expected Christmas gift, dinner and perhaps a personalised text. But what about you? Surely you deserve some of the Christmas spirit that the adverts on television sets and billboards everywhere proclaim is your right (but only if you buy their products). Me? I try and get away from all of the nonsensical behaviour that overwhelms the human race at this time of year, and I do it in the most spectacular fashion, my new hiding spot a mere moment’s drive from the Homes in Willow Acres Estate.

Nkwe resort. Tucked away within the hills of the east, it hides in plain sight, what with its gorgeous ode to the world undiscovered by many, yet cherished by the few who know. As you enter the winding path that leads away from the main road, the sounds of modern suburbia seem to dissipate, disappear into the air, as an unnatural quiet befalls the grounds through which you drive – slightly unnerving, given that not seconds before all you could hear were the sounds, the sirens, the movements of motors and machinery that characterise the world that we live in today. Yet not at all intimidating – more inviting, if anything, as though drawing you in, inviting you to relax and enjoy the change in tempo that is to be found within these lands.

The path leads right, and tall trees block any further attempt to see what lies ahead – at least, such was my anticipation, my curiosity piqued by the brave new world (hi Darwin) that had discovered me. And what trees they were, standing tall and mighty, high above the ground, seemingly guardians of the entrance to splendours as yet unknown, their branches stern yet comforting in the provision of shade from the scorching African sun that we know so well. Through them we drove, the wind sounding in their foliage, as though the fauna of the area were speaking to one another in the ghostly whispers that reached our ears, an ancient language unknown to mortals. At last we happened upon the last of said trees, my vision to what lay ahead now cleared. Green pastures of grass, their hue mesmerizing, such was the radiance, the vibrancy of their natural splendour. We parked. Got out, and that is when the true impact of what all within the area seemed to guard so sacredly, hit home.

The lake stood before us, its majesty simply awe-inspiring - this was already passing over the waterfall in the background, the crystal clear, white waters crashing against the rock, calming, and flowing down, subtly, smoothly over the ancient pathways carved into the earth over the millennia to reach that body of water that glistened with the radiance of a thousand black diamonds, its depths unfathomable, its surface undisturbed…

…For now.

I was talking about how I relax? How I take a break from the Christmas spirit? I run to the top of the craggy cliffs than line the northern shore of the lake that lies within Nkwe resort, breathe deeply, once, twice, and hurl myself into the abyss, with nothing below me save the water to break my fall. Entering its cool, refreshing depths, I feel every care, every concern simply melt away. The stress of the silly season is indeed a silly thing to stress about. The beauty in life that is to be had as part of the natural amenities of Willow Acres is stunning in every conceivable way, and allows for much needed respite from the world in which we live – one from whence we came and, sadly, at some point must return to, yet not before our energies are restored by the sheer joy that is to be had compliments of this marvellous environment.

While at Nkwe, I worry about nothing. I know my car is safe, for the safety through the seclusion of the area stands to rival the very security at Willow Acres itself. I know that for a few, short and precious hours, I will have to ask nothing in want nor need, answer to none, or even answer my phone (turned off and left in the car by the way).While at Nkwe, I experience happiness on a whole new playing field. While at New, I live.
