Olivewood Private Estate & Golf Club in “South Africa’s most beautiful and unspoiled provinces”


The Eastern Cape is one of South Africa’s most beautiful and unspoiled provinces and it includes the wonderfully, and very aptly named, Sunshine Coast.

A northern gateway to this coastline is provided by the very upmarket Olivewood Private Estate and Golf Club which offers it visitors and homeowners all that is best in a secure estate environment.

On the northern outskirts of the region’s ‘second city’ – East London – Olivewood’s location is ideal as a base from which to explore the region.

The estate provides the vacationer with a full range of those essential support elements; a selection of menus offering world class cuisine which can be enjoyed in a choice of 4 separate dining areas.

A beautiful golf course, a very upmarket boutique hotel, the first phase of 12 rooms of which, opened in December 2019 (the next phase of 12 rooms will be available from early in 2020) and which will turn Olivewood into a destination in its own right.

The mix is completed by a beautifully presented clubhouse, which epitomises a gentler, more stylish and bygone era and which offers wonderful views, from the large veranda, down to the Chintsa River Valley.

Whether you are tied up in knots from the stresses of modern life, or perhaps even tying the knot (the estate’s wedding venue is superb)

this estate epitomises all that is wonderful about the Southern African lifestyle – with space to breathe, unwind, play and relax.

For those of you looking for a vacation property away from the winter in the northern hemisphere, there is also space to live with a wonderful variety of individual and sectional title home options.

Olivewood Private Estate and Golf Club brings together all that is best in lifestyle terms in its own unique mix and is a superb addition to the region’s range of golf and lifestyle estates.
