Building begins at unspoiled beachfront paradise on Whale Coast

Building has commenced on the first homes at Romansbaai Beach and Fynbos Estate, a secure seafront development located on the Cape’s Whale Coast, about half an hour’s drive from Hermanus.

Pam Golding Properties (PGP) has the exclusive mandate to market the development, which consists of a selection of 379 erven. Early buyers have already taken transfer of their properties, with the first homes now under construction.
The unspoiled eco-estate, which spans 215ha, is only two hours away from Cape Town, making it the ideal spot for a weekend getaway or holiday home, as well as for a tranquil retirement or work-from-home location. This broad appeal is reflected in the range of buyers to date, with PGP’s most recent sales including a mix of local (Cape or Winelands-based) buyers, a few from Gauteng and another from further afield in Africa.
Plots at Romansbaai can be developed according to the buyer’s individual preference, using their own architect and builder. Just 15ha of the total estate is allocated to the built environment, and plot sizes range from 1200sqm to 6400sqm. Prices for the erven range from R513 000 to R3.42 million inclusive of VAT, and all properties enjoy sea views.
“Romansbaai occupies a unique position in that it is situated on one of the few north-facing beaches on the Cape coastline,” says PGP’s development manager Louise Varga. “This means that it enjoys protection from the notorious Cape south-easter, as well as magnificent views across Walker Bay and spectacular sunsets. The development lies on Danger Point peninsula, a famous landmark in the Gansbaai area, which is world-renowned for its whale-watching, fishing and white shark diving opportunities. The lifestyle on offer is all about relaxation by the sea, soaking up the pristine private beachfront, and living in harmony with the magnificent surrounding flora and fauna.”
Every effort has been made to protect the natural environment during the development process, including clearing of alien vegetation, reintroduction of indigenous species, and the installation of environmentally-friendly systems such as solar water heating, recycling facilities and wind-produced electricity.
All residents have access to a fynbos walking trail within the conservancy, as well as safe swimming, fishing, snorkelling and diving – with kreef-diving in season for those who obtain the necessary permits. Whale-watching in season will be another highlight. Major shopping, restaurants, sporting and medical facilities are all available in Hermanus, while the nearby villages of Stanford, De Kelders, Gansbaai and Kleinbaai offer further recreational facilities to explore, as does the easily accessible Elim Wine Route.
The estate is fully guarded with biometric access control and electronic monitoring. Services have already been installed.
