Hillcrest is a suburb set in The Valley of a Thousand Hills in KZN which means it can be described as a tranquil laid back atmosphere away from the hum drum of city life in Durban.
Only 22 minutes from Pinetown and 35 km from Durban could relate to a prime location and given the stunning setting of the suburb the minor distance should not be viewed as an inconvenience.

There are a number of vacant stands in the suburb waiting for the right design which, in the suburb ranges from conventional to modern and ultra-modern. This means the suburb can be classified as a middle to upper-class suburb with large grounds of most of the homes.

There are a number of new residential or townhouse estates under development within the suburb which is a good indication that the suburb enjoys a high degree of demand and that developers have found a niche market in the reason.
