These are the best suburbs in George

Category Top Property Tips

Choosing a new home is always a challenge. You have to consider more than just the land or house itself. The area plays a very important part of your decision. Depending on your needs, you have to think about access to good schools, transport, places of worship, and more.

George ticks all of the boxes. This Western Cape town is the capital of the Garden Route. As an economic hub, its economy is driven by mainly finance, insurance, real estate and business services. It features tranquil living with plenty to do. Residents enjoy kite and strawberry festivals, farmers' markets, cycle tours and park runs, to name a few of its events.

Seeff's Licensee/Principal, Pieter Jordaan, has great insight into George. As a real estate expert, here are his picks for the best suburbs in George you'd be interested in.


Ideal if you're a pet owner, middle-aged professional or have a family.

With a name that translates to 'mountain view', Bergsig lives up to its name.

"Bergsig, together with Eden and Camphersdrift, are well-established areas," says Pieter. "They're great if you prefer large stands (plots) with gardens and trees overlooking the stunning Outeniqua mountains."

Bergsig has an 'easy access' factor that will draw you in. Quality schools like Outeniqua Primary School and Outeniqua High School are only 5 minutes away from Bergsig central. There is a range of healthcare options like general practitioners, chiropractors and physiotherapists. For all your everyday shopping, you can visit the SPAR and TOPS Wellington Square, Paddagat Shopping Centre or George Loerie Centre.

Interested in Bergsig? You can purchase a piece of land from as low as R695,000, and start building your dream home.


Ideal if you're a pet owner, middle-aged professional or have a family.

This sought-after George suburb is close to popular attractions like the Garden Route Botanical Garden and George Museum. With a strong community atmosphere, it's the perfect place to raise a family or get involved.

For pet lovers, Vet + More supply shop and the Garden Route Animal Hospital are both within a 10-minute drive.

If you're religious, there are many places of worship. There are churches dedicated to Methodists, Presbyterians and Catholics close by. Muslims can practice at the Masjidur-Rahma or Masjid Nur.

You can find the Camphersdrift property that suits your needs here.


Ideal if you're a pet owner, middle-aged professional or have a family.

If you love nature, you'll want to move to Eden. This leafy George suburb is a short distance from the scenic Katrivier and Katrivier Nature Reserve.

Eden is only 10 minutes away from George central. A quick drive will get you to shops, schools, restaurants and religious venues.

Seeff's Eden homes for sale feature the natural beauty you'd expect from the area. Whether you're looking for a 3-bedroom home with a mountain view or a 5-bedroom home complete with a cinema and a jacuzzi, you'll find it here.

Kingswood Golf Estate

Ideal if you're an up-and-coming professional, golfer or business person.

Families will enjoy comfortable living at Kingswood Golf Estate. It boasts child-friendly amenities like a mini cricket oval and a jungle gym. It's also close to schools. Step out of the estate and you'll have access to museums, art galleries, beaches and the Garden Route Mall.

This estate has one demographic firmly in mind, though.

"Kingswood is for the golf lover," says Pieter. "Most buyers are professionals between 30 and 50 years of age."

Kingswood is known for its 18-hole championship golf course. With an award-winning status, the course is used by Sunshine Tour Players when they are not on tour.

Kraaibosch Country Estate

Ideal if you're an up-and-coming professional, middle-aged professional or have a family.

"This is a secure estate on the eastern border of George," says Pieter. "It's truly an area that has exploded over the last few years."

It's not difficult to see why. With its lovely Cape Village style houses and manicured lawns, Kraaibosch Country Estate is the epitome of class. It's close to major George shopping centres and delights a prospective buyer with low levies and breathtaking mountain views.

According to Pieter, this is a practical move for middle-aged families.

"Many Kraaibosch buyers have exchanged their larger properties for this safer environment. It's their move before they switch to a retirement village."

Kraaibosch has good resale values. Early buyers have already sold their properties at a solid profit. However, it makes for such a great stay, you'd think twice before selling.
