Old world - Lovely, quiet old established suburb well within reach of city on highway but near to airport and well situated to reach either northern or southern suburbs.

Great - I love Pinelands. Only problem is for traffic entering Forest Drive in the mornings and afternoon peak hours. No Traffic Officer to do point duty at Links drive / Central Avenue junction.

Why Stay In Pinelands? - Pinelands is an excellent example of South African architechture and cultural mix. It is a blend of old England and old South Africa with it's many thatch roofed dwellings ranging from the original to modified, together with post war developments. It is well layed-out, having been based on two English Garden Cities viz Welwyn and Lechworth, and enjoys a peacefull and tranquil atmosphere. Shopping Centres are conveniently situated and do not impinge on the environment. Pinelands is extremely well positioned for visitors with regards to being centrally located between the City, Airport and the many places of interest and amenities, together with wonderful drives unique to the Peninsula and hinterland, with quick and easy access to the City's well developed Motorway system. Shopping and Cultural Centres, Cinemas, Theatres, Museums, the Waterfront, Botanical Gardens and other entertainment activities to mention a few, such as golfing, cricket, rugby, soccer, marine viz sailing/swimming/surfing, fishing, hiking, and wine tasting are all just a short drive away.

The 10 Minute Suburb - Pinelands is very central and that is why it is called the 10 minute suburb. It is 10 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes to the City Centre and 10 minutes to the closest beach. Guests who have stayed with us have always given us and Pinelands good reviews. The suburb has accommodation to suit everyone's pocket. The shopping centre has a good mix of shops and there are several Restaurants.

Pretty Pinelands - Pinelands is a beautiful area just outside Cape Town, approx 10-12km. We are also just 10km from Cape Town International Airport. Pinelands is a perfect area for a balanced holiday. Not too far from the nightlife in Central Cape Town and not far from the freeways to head into the countryside.
