The Western Cape suburb of Noordhoek dates back to round-about the time of the Jan van Riebeck settlers in 1652. The name could refer to the location which is the northern corner of the Fishoek.
Since then the town has undergone some changes and expanded to where it is today. An interesting fact to note is that Sir Herbert Baker, the famous architect, had his hand in some of the historical homes still standing today and this has also had a factor in property values in general. The other factor in driving property values is the one fact that Capri is the ideal holiday destination.
It is, however, firstly a residential suburb which is a middle class suburb with a mixture of architecture of old world charm with Cape Dutch architecture, conventional and modern homes.
The suburb of Capri is tranquil and offers views of Table Mountain.
The suburb may seem remote but there are a number of major roads connecting the suburb to towns like Simons Town, Fishhoek and Houtbay such as Ou Kaapse Weg, Kommetjie Road and Noordhoek Main Road.
Being a well-established town means there are all the important amenities established like schools and malls.
The suburb will serve well for investors in the letting and holiday rental market due to the suburbs proximity to nature reserves and other tourist attractions the Western Cape has to offer. And being the Western Cape means the stream of tourist is constant.
