Property Area Focus: Whale Rock Gardens
Conveniently situated close to town and within walking distance from the beach, ever-popular is the ideal spot whether upsizing, downsizing or buying an investment property from where to explore Plettenberg Bay and the Garden Route.
It is just a 10-minute meander by foot over a wetland’s boardwalk to the glorious Robberg Beach, a paradise on earth, with views to the right of Robberg Nature Reserve - also a national monument with rocks dating back 120 million years.
Whale Rock Gardens is a gated and access-controlled estate that is a mere five-minute drive down Longships to the Beacon Isle shops, and an 8-minute drive into Plettenberg Bay's Main Street with an abundance of shops and restaurants. Market Square and Plettenberg Mall is 10 -15 minutes away, with big shops like Pick n Pay, Woolworths, Clicks, Mug and Bean and Checkers, plus many boutique shops.
The Whale Rock Gardens Estate has pristine gardens, gorgeous, beautifully maintained parks and dams and a large sparkling pool. The area is particularly popular for the superb natural surroundings including a variety of indigenous fauna and flora.
This is Plett’s prime secure estate for those seeking smaller full title homes set over one level with recent sales from R2 200 000 and those looking for lock-up-and-go apartment options currently available from R1 650 000. In addition to the existing 32 apartments, there are additional apartments being built to cater for the demand.
Sales in this estate are evidence of the high demand with 21 properties having been sold since 2018. With only six vacant stands left, the 88-stand estate is almost fully developed.
Also planned for the area is an upmarket, 8000m2 retail and commercial centre where you’ll have everything you need just a stone’s throw from home. There you can enjoy boutique shopping, dining, offices, a gym, spa, pharmacy, supermarket, and much more – without having to drive.
Whale Rock Gardens offers peaceful seaside living and a perfect base from which to explore everything that Plett has to offer, from the host of outdoor adventure and leisure activities to the beautiful beaches.
