Retire in style in Onrus

A new development now under way offers senior citizens the opportunity to retire in style to the idyllic coastal village of Onrus, near Hermanus in the Western Cape.
Named Twee Fonteine, the exclusive retirement village is in a very good location offering panoramic sea and mountain views but also within walking distance of shops and other amenities, says Deon Esterhuyse of marketing agency Aida Onrus.
Retirees and people nearing retirement make up a large percentage of the homebuyers in Onrus, which is popular because it is close enough to Cape Town and Hermanus for convenience but at the same time offers residents a tranquil, safe lifestyle in picturesque surroundings.
The village has a magnificent beach, a beautiful lagoon that attracts many rare species of birds and extensive cliff paths from which to spot Southern Right whales that come to calve in Walker Bay. It also has quite a large number of resident artists, writers, musicians and crafters who enjoy its peaceful atmosphere. 
The heart of the Twee Fonteine development, says Esterhuyse, will be a community centre housing a dining hall, library, ladies bar, medical facilities, an indoor heated pool and 50 sectional title units priced at around R595 000.
There will also be four frailcare bedsitter units available, with medical care provided by Elcare. And for those who would like more space and independence, the village will house 75 full title units of between 128sqm and 183sqm, at prices starting from R1,395m.
The finishes in all the homes will be of the highest quality, and include granite tops in kitchens and bathrooms as well as wide choice of light fittings, tiles and taps.
“And another major draw card for this development,” he notes, “is the fact that buyers will get back the full profits on the resale of their units except for 2% that will go into body corporate funds. In other developments of this kind, those selling their homes generally only get to keep about 40% of the profit and sometimes only get back the capital they initially invested.”

      Possibly one of the biggest sources of contention between landlords and tenants surrounds the rental deposit. “Most tenants rely on getting their rental deposits back when moving, so that they can use it to pay a deposit on their new home. Having it withheld or even having large amounts deducted can lead to a lot of distress,” explains Bruce Swain, CEO of Leapfrog Property Group.
