Rock piles, butterfly shells & footprints in the sand

Seven blissful months in this lovely place and we knew that we had found our home ~ by Kgomotso Malatshi
For city people coming all the way from busy and bustling Johannesburg, working in high-paced careers, this feel-good vibe is definitely what the doctor ordered. Our kids have found the one place that they can call “a vacation at home”. We have found paradise in Africa, right on the edge of this amazing town.
Kholofelo Malatshi, a five times nominated and four times SAFTA ( South African Film & Television) award winner, would always joke with his partners and producers about the thought of editing a feature film by the sea, to the sounds of the ocean. Little did he know that joke would actually turn into a reality and how pretty soon it would come to be. He and his wife Kgomotso, who works as a marketing researcher and a translator, along with their 3 children, will be building their home in the Eco Estate. The scenery and the atmosphere allow for a drive of creativity, one that has enabled him to produce several Showmax productions and proves to be ideal for their remote work. With their children being homeschooled, this is a perfect landing and the ideal setting to foster a creative space.
Working in the television and entertainment industry, the one place that makes us feel settled is far from everything we have ever known. And this is the place we now call home. Because it feels just like that. Stunning beaches, great coffee & donuts to live for! Falling asleep to the sounds of the sea, this is the place we are ready to call our forever. The air in Kenton Eco Estate provides an inexplicable form of escapism, like you are in a different world altogether. It’s laid back and the mellow breeze sets your stress and tensions free. It has a lodge-like yet very family-friendly vibe.
When our feet hit that sand, the sun kissed our skin and that salt water drenched our clothes for the first time, we knew that our lives would experience a new kind of joy in our hearts. Our spirits had found their peace in this amazing gem of an Estate.
