Eden to Addo

< 1 min readWalking is much more than a way to get from A to B. It’s a meditation and a pilgrimage.

Common pool resource management – Strategy to avoid tragedy

< 1 min readManaging a residential estate is a little like juggling with eggs. It can be tricky to balance each resident’s rights to fully enjoy all the communal facilities and services with the need to protect, preserve and maintain all the elements that go to making the estate the special place it is.

The Dams are mostly full

< 1 min readWith the nationwide rainfall that we have enjoyed, some courtesy of Tropical Storm Eloise, most of our large dams are now full. The media is reporting that our water worries are over, at least for the time being. But is this the case, or is this just a blip in a general downward trend? As with many things, to predict the future, we need to look at the past.

Local n’ Lekker

< 1 min readFor Jack Probart, a Kingswood home owner and entrepreneur par excellence, there are no half measures. You either do a thing wholeheartedly and properly, or leave it. It is obvious that this motto works for him, judging by the success of his now global wealth management business, Affluence Capital.

Hot Stuff

< 1 min readMassive wildfires along the Garden Route in recent years have highlighted the varied needs of this area, which has some of the most diverse biomes in the country.

Golf @ Kingswood

< 1 min readIt’s a brand-new year with an incredible number of opportunities to get back into the game of life. And to help you with this, the Kingswood golf course’s calendar is once again jam-packed with exciting events and competitions.

1

Security update

< 1 min readHome owners might have noticed a new Fidelity branded golf cart and quad bike doing the rounds on the Kingswood premises. These recently acquired additions to the estate’s comprehensive security measures are just one way in which the company contributes to residents’ peace of mind.

Kingswood HOA – Its our course, and we’re giving it lots of love.

< 1 min readThe Kingswood HOA has been in control of the golf course maintenance for about three months now, since finalising the acquisition at the end of October 2020.

HOA in action

< 1 min readLize Baard, the well-loved and extremely experienced bookkeeper of Kingswood, has been part of the team for the past 17 years – almost since Day One. And she regards it as a major privilege to live and work in this sublimely heavenly abode.

1

Meet the Trustees

< 1 min readCurrently in his second term as a Kingswood HOA trustee member, Gerrit Botha cherishes the estate and its serene, picturesque surroundings dearly. ‘We won’t move again,’ he firmly declared on a bright sunny morning over a cup of coffee.

Rules and regulations

< 1 min readRules are the glue that keeps an estate from breaking down into anarchy – but they can also be the cause of some conflict, so they need to be handled with care. And one of the most important aspects of keeping the rules is ensuring that everyone knows them. Everyone!

Two sides of offshore property

< 1 min readInvestors who’re looking to access the international property market have two main choices: individual, physical properties, or a diversified portfolio with exposure to the real estate market. Which option is best for you?

Horror story

< 1 min readUsually, when you review a book that you think is good, or even – as in this case – excellent, you wax lyrical about how much you enjoyed it. Well, this was not the case here. Reading this book is not enjoyable. Every page you turn feels like being hit over the head with something big and heavy – perhaps a book, but definitely a hardcover one. Seriously, it’s a traumatic read, but a very important one, especially for developers with a social conscience who are hoping to create something sustainable.

Rules and regulations

< 1 min readIf you are living in a residential estate, you probably know that there are a host of rules to which you have to adhere. Most of these you will find quite reasonable, and probably appreciate how they protect you from minor (and some major) nuisances. But you may find some a bit onerous so, if you are thinking of moving to, or buying into, an estate, make sure you know the rules before you sign on the dotted line.

Offshore property and your estate

< 1 min readAs the local economy continues to wobble, more and more South Africans are looking overseas to build and diversify their wealth. Property is an increasingly attractive part of that offshore investment picture. But whether it’s a small rental apartment in Portugal or a seaside villa in Zanzibar, that offshore property needs very careful attention when it comes to estate planning.

High-tech, low impact

< 1 min readSadly, we need to protect our homes with a range of security measures, but that doesn’t mean we have to live behind bars, caged up like prisoners. Security is a dynamic, ever-evolving industry in which cutting-edge technology is constantly employed to produce best-practice applications.

Ebotse Golf and Country Estate

< 1 min read‘The best way to experience Ebotse Golf and Country Estate is from the water,’ developer and director Vince Cockbain said as I gingerly stepped onto the boat from the jetty. And he was right. The 40-hectare Rynfield Dam is the heart of this green enclave on the East Rand.

Chapman’s Bay Estate

< 1 min readThe developers of Chapman’s Bay Estate have utilised the unique setting and physical attributes of its Noordhoek location to provide residents with dramatic mountain and sea views, while simultaneously addressing the environmental needs of the surrounding wetlands and indigenous fynbos.

Cotswold Downs Golf and Lifestyle Estate

< 1 min readOnce a dear little hamlet bordering KwaZulu-Natal’s Valley of 1000 Hills, Hillcrest underwent a massive property boom before becoming the established Durban suburb we know today.

1

Fancourt Golf Estate

< 1 min readLocation is everything, and Fancourt is situated in George, the de facto capital of the Garden Route. The Garden Route, which is defined by its white sand beaches, mystical forests, winding rivers and countless lakes, has embraced Slow Living.
