Why are holiday homes a good investment?

Why are holiday homes a good investment?

A holiday home is usually a cottage, complex, flat, apartments or a villa holiday home, mainly used as a vacation property for the accommodation of holiday vacations, corporate travel, and temporary housing often for less than 30 days (Wikipedia).

The rise in holiday homes?
In 2016 an FNB bank Property Barometer report focusing on the buy-to-let property (Buy-to-let is an arrangement in which an investor borrows money to purchase property in the private rented sector in order to let it out to tenants) market revealed that an estimated 16.2% of properties bought by individual South Africans are second homes compared to 2010 which was below 10%.

The rise of buy-to-let property can be justified by the internet which has enabled short term rental property platforms like Airbnb, Safari Now & Booking.com (FYI: Airbnb has about 150 million user’s wide world) to gain access to the market.

Why the Dolphin Coast is the ULTIMATE property investment in KZN

Why the Dolphin Coast is the ULTIMATE property investment in KZN

The Dolphin Coast is essentially a piece of coastline running along the North Coast of KwaZulu Natal. The reason for it being known as the Dolphin Coast is due to the high volume of Bottlenose Dolphins that frequent there, riding the waves of the warm Indian Ocean.

The Dolphin Coast is KwaZulu Natals’ greatest tourist attraction with one of the best beaches South Africa can offer. With amazing Golf courses like Zimbali, with Ballito’s most popular strawberry farm – Cappeny Estates, the Flag Animal Farm, lovely nature parks, Sugar Rush Park for the children, mini golf, microlight flights, reptile parks and exciting shopping / eating experiences;  no wonder the Dolphin Coast is one of KwaZulu Natals’ most popular tourist destinations.

The areas included in this stretch are:

Ballito Thompson Bay
Blythedale Beach Tinley Manor
Darnall Tongaat
Kearsney Tugela
La Mercy Umhlali
Princes Grant Umvoti River Mouth
Salt Rock Westbrook Beach
Shakas Rock Zimbali
Sheffield Beach Zinkwazi
Stanger

The experience is truly one that is made of memories boosting many holiday resorts, beach houses, rentals and villas along the coastline with beautiful views of the magnificent shoreline.

With amazing sights, sounds and endless entertainment, be sure to make the Dolphin Coast your choice in property investments!
