Cape Town has for many years been a major tourist destination. The town and the Western Cape Province have a rich cultural history dating back to 1652 when the Dutch Settlers colonized Cape Town.
The suburb of Sea Point has for a long time been the haven for tourists both in and out of season. The mixed property usage of the suburb comprises mostly apartments facing the seafront and beaches with the boardwalk from Sea Point to Green Point.
Beyond Main Road Sea Point is High Level Road which is mainly residential homes, many of which are classic dating back to yesteryear which will be ideal for investors and renovators alike.
Many of the apartment buildings on Main Road have received facelifts which has injected an even higher degree of demand for an insatiable market.
This has only driven the market into an exclusive suburb with some penthouses fetching as much as R11 million rand on the open market.
There are apartments that still fall within the upmarket category which will serve well as that ideal second holiday apartment and the alternative of the apartments is the lucrative holiday rental market which I not as seasonally bound as places like KZN due to the large number of foreign tourists frequenting the Western Cape.
The central location of Sea Point is one major factor that also contributes to property values as it is close to venues like The V&A Waterfront, Camps Bay, Fishhoek and Rondebosch with their tourist amenities.
For established residents to Sea Point all the important amenities like schools, malls and commercial hubs are within easy access.
Reputable schools servicing the suburb are Sea Point High School, Sea Point Primary School and French School of Cape Town.
Malls in and around Sea Point are the various retail shops in the V&A Waterfront, The Point Mall and Galleria Shopping Centre.
