The Dream

Schoongezicht began as a dream....

It was the dream of several like-minded overseas investors, who had already seen most of the world and were now searching for a place for themselves where they would be able to fulfil their personal ideas and concepts for a future home.

In search of tranquillity and peace of mind, this place had to be close to the sea and beaches. A place where the beauty of nature was still largely unspoiled, with a moderate, healthy climate and plenty of sunshine, while the Northern Hemisphere was in the grip of winter. An area where the infrastructure is functioning, excellent restaurants and shopping facilities are available, and with all essential services in close proximity. A place where one can leisurely pursue most sporting interests, in particular golf at different courses, as well as tennis and water sports, without being surrounded by endless streams of tourists.

In such surroundings they wanted to build their exclusive Mediterranean-style houses which would allow their “dream to come true”. A comfortable, relaxed outdoor lifestyle was what everyone longed for.

This jewel of a place was found in South Africa, along the beautiful Garden Route – in Plettenberg Bay – and they called it Schoongezicht.
