Renting out a holiday home is quite a stressful process. You need to book way in advance if you’re thinking of heading out during the peak season and even before then, rallying the family to find a suitable date for everyone.
This is possibly why many South African families have come together to invest in holiday homes.
What makes the ideal holiday home?
Whatever you want from a relaxing break, your holiday home needs to be suited towards this. If you’re looking to sell a holiday home to potential clients, you need to find out what they’re hoping to get out of their ‘break’. Is it a seaside getaway? To be among the bushveld or to be nestled near a mountain? Once you have these questions answered, you’ll be able to find the ideal holiday home.
What are some of the best holiday regions in South Africa?
Here are some insights into where you’ll find the best holiday homes:
Western Cape and KZN for all your seaside needs
For shorelines that never quit and eateries galore, the Western Cape has become quite popular amongst international tourists and locals alike. Even those living in the province, a quick drive to the West Coast, Plettenberg Bay, or Ceres is the ideal getaway for the busy lifestyles most people in Cape Town live.
For those seeking warmer oceans and equally breathtaking views, KwaZulu-Natal offers pristine beaches, favourable weather, and spectacular views. Howick has become a popular destination for holiday homes for these exact reasons. With warm summers and cool winters, properties in this area is a great investment as the demand is high.
Bushveld escape in Limpopo
Bela Bela is prime property in Limpopo when it comes to those seeking safari holidays. It’s also a region that has great restaurants and day-trip activities if you feel like doing something adventurous on your vacation.
