The Neighbourhood


Pinelands is a 'Garden City' with gracious thatched/period properties & large trees, wide roads and generous gardens.    We have a popular Italian restaurant around the corner and a local shopping centre within walking distance.  


Our house, built in 1942, is in a tranquil street, with the Oval sports fields behind the house.  A perfect location for holiday makers, solo travellers, business and educational trips to Cape Town.  The two cottages are on either side & adjacent to the main house, with their own entrances and common access to the swimming pool. 


We have a beautiful landscaped garden and a sparkling blue, solar heated pool with comfortable pool loungers & large umbrellas. 

Pinelands is in a perfect location for exploring the city - with easy access to the N2 highway and other major routes.

Take the N2 Highway to Cape Town from the Airport and exit at junction 10b Pinelands. Continue up Forest Drive and cross the traffic light at the BP petrol garage.  Take the next left into Uitvlugt Road.  The entrance is in the cul-de-sac at the side of the house.

(GPS devices sometimes cannot find no 10 or no 11 Uitvlugt Road - try putting in number 1 or 2 instead and follow these directions once you find the road.)
