Langebaan offers idyllic holiday lifestyle

“This year we have been fortunate that we have not had a high and low demand period and appreciation of properties here has climbed slowly and steadily,” says Lodewick

Lodewick says that they have managed to achieve record sales in Langebaan compared to the past four years, two of which are a home that is not situated on the beach for R9,05 million as well as a golf estate stand for R820 000.

Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, notes that any property, whether it is a holiday home or permanent residence, will always sell faster if it is priced right. Buyers, he says, are looking for value-for-money properties that are close to amenities and leisure activities, especially if they are holiday home investments.

He describes Langebaan as the cosy coastal town that everyone should visit on holiday as it has a wide range of activities to satisfy just about every need. “There are lagoon sports from kayaking and shore fishing to boat fishing, water skiing, surfing, kite boarding and more. The area offers nature lovers the opportunity to take long walks on white sandy beaches, a visit to the West Coast National Park with Fynbos and free roaming wild life and the area is considered to be a bird watcher’s paradise. Langebaan is also close to a number of game farms.”

Added to this Langebaan offers golfing enthusiasts an 18-hole Gary Player redesigned Black Knight golf course, a 9-hole mashie golf course, a driving range and Pro Putt golf facilities.
Club Mykonos is home to a casino for evening entertainment and also offers indoor sports facilities as well as restaurants on the harbour.

Lodewick notes that this secure coastal town also offers various mountain biking trails as well as an array of good restaurants offering a variety of cuisines and dishes, situated either on the beach with sea views, overlooking the golf course or within nature.

Talking about leisure property investment opportunities in Langebaan, Lodewick says that while many of the lower priced properties are sectional title units, larger holiday homes are also in demand, which are often sold to inland buyers who are mostly farmers and large corporate companies.

Sectional title units sell from R360 000 to R1million, while free-standing homes range in price from R900 000 to R10 million. Beachfront stands are priced from R1,3 million to R6 million while homes within the secure golf estate range from R1,1 million to R5,5 million.

Lodewick expects Langebaan properties to appreciate by approximately 5% year-on-year, however he notes that it all depends on the boom in the neighbouring suburb Saldanha which will shoot Langebaan property prices sky high if it takes off next year. “All indications that this will indeed happen are looking good,” he concludes.
