Pinelands Reviews

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 Self Catering

Self Catering places can be found from rural to urban areas and can vary in what they offer. They allow plenty freedom and is a great inexpensive way to spend your holiday. They have been widely classified as a “Home away from home”. This is a good option for guests who don’t mind cooking their own food, and are looking for a more independent and flexible form of accommodation. For budget and large families, we would recommend self-catering for a more personalised experience.
