Pearl Valley Golf Resort is a top five golf facility, the last five years, in South Africa.
The resort lies in the heart of the Cape Winelands close to the historic towns of Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch and only a 30 minute drive from Cape Town and the beaches.
My wife and I live in Solihull, UK where we run our own private dental specialist practice (www.de-waal.co.uk). I am Zimbabwean born, South African educated and have been living in the UK since 1979.
We have two daughters, Jeanna and Dani, both actresses, at present in the USA.(www.jeanna-and-dani.com)
Dr. Hendrik de Waal purchased this house in 2012
We are both keen golfers, regularly visit South Africa and recently bought this lovely lodge on the fantastic Pearl Valley golf resort. My brother and sister both live in the Cape Town/ Gordons Bay area.
Everything about the area, the resort and the lodge excites us.....as I am sure it will, to anyone else visiting.
The lodge is luxuriously and tastefully furnished, with a brilliant covered barbecue patio on the edge of a tranquil large pond with the Paarl mountains in the distance.
Practically it is a short 5 minute walk from the resort clubhouse, pro shop, restaurant/ bar, spa/ fitness centre, driving range, swimming pool & tennis courts.
A 15 minute drive away are the fine dining towns of Franschhoek & Paarl, with multiple wine farms and their restaurants, surrounding the resort.
Cape Town and the Cape beaches are a comfortable motorway 30 minute drive away.
