A lifestyle for every culture

Pinetown, being a very multi-cultural area, attracts different types of people from all walks of life. Having its own CBD, the area offers convenience for those who own or work in businesses in the area. The suburb has great homes, at affordable prices, and good schools that will appeal to families as well. This neighbourhood has a reputation as a "motor town", due to the high number of motor dealerships along the main road. Pinetown offers a slower pace of life than Durban, but is a short 15 minute drive from the bigger city.
