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!

Security at Woodlands

Safety – It’s a word we throw around these days without any real thought as to what it actually captures in how we feel. For instance, when I hear the word “safety”, I immediately think of my mother yelling at me to get off the roof – I mean come on, I was 6 years old, what was so dangerous about being on the roof (apparently everything)? Or looking both ways when I cross the street. Or those stranger-danger classes in junior school, which were supposed to teach you about being safe around people you didn’t know, but just ended up making it that much more difficult to approach a girl for date (yes women scared the pants off me ‘til about the tenth grade). Safety when discussing properties within Woodlands Residential Estate, however, means something slightly more evolved.

Now I’m not saying encourage your children to blindly cross the road without care nor concern because the nice man in the car with the blacked-out windows offered to take them to meet Optimus Prime (yes he exists). Nor am I saying it’s a good idea to let your six year old out onto the roof (I mean it wasn’t a bad idea, I only came away with, like, 12 stitches). But I am saying that there do exist places where you would have the help of those whose job it is to ensure the safety and security (security being a unique aspect in its own right that will be touched upon shortly) of both you and your family. Short of barging into your house to stop your child clambering out of the upstairs window because the roof looked “fun” (also apparently not a valid excuse as to why one should venture toward the heavens), these men and women deployed as part of the safety aspect of Woodlands will ensure your utmost peace of mind, void of fear and concern. And it doesn't stop there, as said care and concern for your children extends to the Schools Woodlands, their priority being the safe up-bringing of your loved ones.

The difference is, you see, between security personnel, and those security personnel that find themselves in the employment of Woodlands, is that they understand the human side of safeguarding. To them, security does not simply mean “gates, walls, electrified fences (getting to those in a second), but inclusive of that description is the idea of it being a mind-set to those that require it. That is, what is the point of safety is one does not feel safe (similarly, what is the point of me donning the green and gold sweater and getting my hopes up if the Springboks are getting their behinds handed to them by the likes of Ireland, I mean come). Safety is as much a feeling as it is a mental concept. For example, you want to know, be absolutely sure, that if anything does happen within the walls of the enclosure (highly unlikely, but I’ll play devil’s advocate for the time being), you are going to get timely response by individuals who respect and understand your concern yet still act in a calm and professional manner in dealing with said situation. You want to sleep knowing that everything is being done, in using pro-active, instead of a reactive methods, to defend your homestead and those that dwell within, that static walls and unmoving gates complimented by South Africa’s finest, moving about the premises in beautiful, deadly harmony, as though of one mind.

Perhaps I should clarify something – yes, these guys and girls are the baddest of the bad when it comes to matters of security, but one should not come away with an impression of “unapproachability”. The philosophy behind safeguarding at Woodlands is that in numbers we draw our strength. The community of Woodlands, be they dentists, doctors or golfers of the Woodhill Country Club and Golf Course, are just as involved in the continued prosperity of the area. Security guards are beyond friendly when conversing with residents, and appreciate all the help that they receive from vigilant homeowners. Such is the bond between man and soldier that it is as though there exists no difference between them, each willing to go the extra mile to ensure the other’s safety. All for one and one for all, if you will.

And yes, I did say that I would elaborate a little further in terms of the physical barriers that safeguard a community along with said valiant and ever-brave men and women. So here it goes, starting with no doubt the most noticeable of all – large and imposing (“large and imposing” being the euphemism of the century) walls stand as a primary defence against the ills of the unknown, topped with very, very, (very) high voltage electrical wiring – to give you an idea, that scene in Jurassic park where fence is reactivated to keep the Tyrannosaurus at bay. And yes, Woodlands could hand a T-rex. Night-vision equipped high-resolution cameras remain strewn across the grounds, their eyes undimmed by darkness, giving incredible insight to those that man the CCTV monitors 24 hours a day. Motion sensors deployed about the grounds at strategic locations means that nothing short of human flight would allow anyone to move about undetected. And even if you could fly (and if you can you really need to teach me), roving patrols, their eyes as if those of a hawk, would spot your any attempt to breach the perimeter.

So, in closing, if you are still not convinced as to the security capabilities of Woodlands, and seek somewhere just a tad bit safer – Helms Deep is always free,
