The idyllic town of Gordon's Bay offers today's retirees a safe haven and quality living in the form of Summervale Lifestyle and Retirement Village located in Lemoenboom Road Gordon's Bay. The Village provides the ideal platform for retirees to access the excellent amenities and lifestyle that the Helderberg has to offer; an area abundant with excellent beaches, fine dining, great recreational infrastructure and access to world class medical care.
As the only fully - fledged retirement facility in Gordon's Bay, it offers all the amenities and services commensurate with quality living during the retirement years. Launched in 2004, it has grown into a vibrant and thriving community consisting of nearly 200 completed units and establishing itself as a benchmark in the Helderberg, attracting buyers from all over South Africa and abroad.
It is important to note that these units offer a maintenance - free lifestyle since only the best Corobrick face bricks are used for construction. The interior design is modern, yet incorporates the needs of retirees. Purchasers become full owners of their unit and as such have unfettered capital growth on their respective unit.
It goes without saying that safety and security has become a very pertinent issue in our daily lives. In this regard Summervale Lifestyle and Retirement Village is not lacking. The entire development is fenced with a 1.8m high wall and/or palisade fencing and is further secured with electrified fencing. A single manned entrance/exit gate with remote controlled access further enhances and ensures the safety of Summervale.
It is important to note that Summervale is located next to the biggest neigbourhood shopping centre in Gordon's Bay
. A secure pedestrian walkway leads residents directly to this very convenient feature.
