Come to Kommetjie – while you still can

With over R100 million worth of sales in the area this year, Kommetjie has been discovered, and a shortage of stock is steadily pushing up the average price range.

“We’re expecting a busy holiday season, but with only an estimated 50 homes and 45 vacant stands on the market at the moment, our buyers have to make quick decisions to secure the home of their dreams,” says Marissa Massari, property consultant at Jawitz Properties Kommetjie.

A home currently on the market for R20 Million
The Cape suburb of Kommetjie and its neighbours Bluewater Estate and Imhoff’s Gift caters to buyers who dream of living a peaceful village lifestyle by the seaside, surrounded by nature, at affordable property prices. “Entry level prices start at R1.6 million for a property in Kommetjie and although vacant land is a scare commodity, there are still some stands available priced from around R895 000”.
“There are, of course, some properties that come with heftier price tags,” adds colleague Tracey Reid-Daly. She highlights two beachfront sales this year concluded at R8.5 million and R7 million each, although prices for exclusive homes on the beachfront can reach up to R20 million.
“Quality of life is Kommetjie’s main drawcard, with nature on its residents’ doorsteps.  Typical activities include bird watching, crayfishing, diving, kite-surfing, mountain walks, whale watching, snorkelling and, of course, surfing the waves of world famous Longbeach. And you can get your fill at our local coffee shops, delis and restaurants; this is a fully self-sufficient town,” says Massari.
Kommetjie is attracting more young families as well as buyers from the centre of Cape Town and Gauteng.
“People are choosing to raise their families in a safe, stress-free environment where children can ride their bikes to school. Just 40 minutes from Cape Town’s CBD, some residents commute into the city or to Westlake Business Park just over Ou Kaapse Weg mountain pass, or they set up their own satellite business from home,” adds Reid-Daly. Kommetjie is also blessed with an active neighbourhood watch called KomWatch, which adds a strong note of reality to the sense of security in this town.
Massari concludes: “We’re kicking off the end of year festivities in style from 7 December with the Kommetjie Festival which attracts visitors from all over the peninsula and is a real opportunity to showcase all this seaside village has to offer”.
