More info about Pinelands
The peaceful suburb of Pinelands is conveniently located between the international airport and the city of Cape Town. The suburb’s unique layout was based on an idea first conceived by Englishman Ebenezer Howard in his 1898 book entitled Garden Cities of To-morrow. His peers ridiculed the garden city concept but were proven wrong when Pinelands mushroomed into a suburban area cleverly designed around a central park and shopping facilities conveniently located for its residents.
In keeping with this concept, over 25ha of land is allocated to sporting facilities, churches of varying denominations are centrally clustered and homes along the main tree-lined thoroughfares are set back against the traffic.
The Elsieskraal River runs directly through Pinelands via a concrete canal, effectively creating a green belt.
Many large corporations have premises in Pinelands to enjoy the suburb’s park-like surroundings.

About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
