Muizenberg - Cape Town's surfing destination of choice

Category Property news

Known around the country as the surfing destination of choice, Muizenberg is the place to be to catch some of the country's most exciting waves. It is not just the ultimate surfing experience that has made the suburb popular, but also the enticing lifestyle with its all-round appeal. 
Mike Greeff, CEO of Greeff Christie's International Real Estate says, "The area of Muizenberg is steeped in history and culture and has a truly unique feel. Residents of the area are fortunate enough to live like tourists in their own suburb as the area offers so much to explore and get up to. Surfing is definitely a popular pastime but there is so much more to do and discover, all the while being surrounded by the most beautiful scenery.

"Buyers that are considering Muizenberg are also fortunate as the area enjoys properties of all kinds, all of which are highlighted by the most beautiful landscape and views."

Muizenberg is home to the annual Kite Festival, Casa Labia Morning Concerts and a host of other exciting events and as such, draws a significant number of visitors to the area and has increased interest in Muizenberg's property. The area in itself is as diverse as its residents with property in the area offering the resident both the perfect playground and a place to call home. 

Areas like Surfer's Corner are an institution and have an appeal that joins generations in love for common activity and culture. On any given weekday you will see die-hard waveriders lining up with every wave from dawn to dust. The surf life is something that appeals to young and old, novice and professional alike.

Muizenberg is seen as one of the city's foremost inner-city getaway areas with several guesthouses, Airbnb's and Bed and Breakfasts present. Its rich heritage is expanded upon with its several historical buildings and museums, as well as pharmacies that have been around for over a century. The area in itself benefits of properties that are rich in history with some that have been cleverly updated and redone to boast the most modern fixtures and fittings.

This happy harmony of old and new is perfectly indicative of Muizenberg's soul. 

Muizenberg has proven to not only be the place of choice for the older generation but the younger generation too with 56% of recent buyers aged between 18 and 35, according to Lightstone Properties.

The area's well-priced properties certainly contribute to the trend with sectional title properties priced at an average of R870 thousand and full title properties priced at R1.5 million - an extremely attractive price bracket for a seaside lifestyle. Greeff Christie's International
