Situated mere minutes from the CBD, Milnerton feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

The area boasts sandy beaches, panoramic views over the lagoon and Table Mountain, and the type of lifestyle you would expect from a small coastal town and not a suburb of a world-renowned cosmopolitan city.
