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.


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.


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.

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 Woodlands

Woodlands Estate – possibly one of my favourite examples of how living is accomplished in every way conceivable to the 21st century city dweller. However, along with the lifestyle inherent of every major metropolitan hub comes a certain pressure to perform, one that does indeed take its toll on every one the residents of the urban landscapes of today. We all know the kinds of stressors that we face on a daily basis – the car rides, the traffic, the ultimately inconsequential road rage that does nothing but drive up our blood pressure to the point of extremity. 

And then of course there’s work – which many of us do enjoy, but I have no doubt when I say that there are other things that you would rather be doing. It’s just a reality of life that there are times when things become too much to bear and we need to take a step back in realising that all the stress and worry that we put ourselves through just isn’t worth it, and that if we are to continue to strive through what we must do to achieve the results that we desire, a break from everything will be needed every now and then – a “half time” to the rat race if you will, for I do not believe for a moment that there exists a mortal capable of going non-stop in every aspect of his or her existence without depleting their life batteries (it’s odd, every time I use that phrase I think of that Duracell bunny ad – I guess consumerist culture really is taking its toll on me). Fortunately, our batteries are rechargeable, and it only takes a few hours to see them reach full capacity in helping use deal with our day-to-day struggles. As for how we recharge? Well, to each his own. That is, everyone has their own way of doing it. Me? I like to immerse myself in the natural world that surrounds us in searching for the next big adrenalin rush that sees my cares melt away in the moment. And quite recently, I think I’ve come across what stands to be a very permanent source of needed energy in the refuelling for days to come.

Nkwe resort – but a moment’s drive from properties within Woodlands, this timeless (and when I say timeless, I mean it looks like the area has been there since the start of time itself, such is the ancient grandeur that the park exudes to all that are privileged enough to grace their eyes with its presence) testament to nature at its most raw, its most beautiful, presents the perfect opportunity in escaping the seemingly inescapable woes of the world through experiences in far distant lands, yet somehow still within walking distance of the nearest arterial road within the eastern suburbs of the capital city – it is quite strange, wonderfully so, that  such a gem could find growth, life, within the hub-bub of the capital city, the rate of expansion overtaking everything in its path – yet, somehow, here it is, a hidden marvel that invites all to taste of its invigorating waters and breathe of its life giving air. Included within the proximity of the natural amenities of Woodlands Estate, Nkwe is within grasping distance to all those who would spend a few moments in catching their breadth, steadying their mind and easing their soul, before continuing on with the trek that sees us as part of popular urban culture and society.

As for that adrenalin rush that I so passionately seek? Well Nkwe has a lake. And directly adjacent to the lake are these cliffs…I think you see where I’m going with this. The fall, the drop into nothingness is absolutely breath-taking. It is a moment of pure and utter calm – no sound, no sight, no sense of anything at all. Just you, surrounded on all sides by the absolute abyss into which you fall. The cares, the concerns dissipate around you as you move, earthward, the feeling of letting go has never been so complete. It is something that cannot be adequately described in words, but only felt through experience. The strangest thing? The moment your body leaves the solid surface of the rock behind, you feel no fear…none whatsoever, the safety in the freefall is perhaps comparable to the feeling of safety that one has with regards to the very security at Woodlands – the notion, the knowledge that for that moment, suspended in the air, you are free of the chains that bind us to the mortal realm. You. You are immune, invulnerable, untouchable - immortal if you will. Certainly the last thought on your mind before you enter the water with a deafening crash and in a whiteout of bubbles will be one of pure bliss. And the memory of that feeling is what allows me to get up every day and push ahead with what needs to, and what has to, be done
