What attracts buyers to the area?

Buyers are attracted to Blaauwberg as it offers the perfect family beach, with long sandy stretches and uninterrupted views of spectacular sunsets, whales in the bay and Table Mountain in the distance. Sports enthusiasts love the wave-surfing, kite-surfing and wind-surfing. While you have easy access to the great outdoors and wonderful West Coast resorts further north, the Western Seaboard was the first area to be linked to the central city via MyCiTi in 2011 (the airport route was already operating). This has made people look at the neighbourhood as a place where you can fight the traffic.

What type of buyers does Bloubergstrand appeal to?

Old Bloubergstrand village has a character of its own. It is a historical neighbourhood where families of all generations reside close to the beach and well-known rock pools. It boasts world-renowned views of Table Mountain and Robben Island and attracts a more discerning buyer. Residents tend to renovate older homes and stay forever. Move along to Big Bay and the vibe changes. There are beachfront restaurants, a young family vibe, kite surfers and water sports lovers, and a bay ideal for swimming. The heart of Bloubergstrand is its active residents association who play an important role in caring for the community and taking care of their suburb.
