Hillcrest family home offers wide choice of nearby sporting activities, from polo and golf to hiking and canoeing.

The village of Hillcrest was founded in 1895 as a farming settlement, and really started growing only since the introduction of tarred roads in the 1970s and 1980s. Hillcrest, now subject to administration by the Outer West Council, has many new middle-income residential
estates, such as Plantations. 

The town centre has also undergone immense change, with shopping centres sprouting at every corner.
Hillcrest boasts a clean environment as well as an almost rustic vibe, with scenic views everywhere. 
The town is linked to two major highways, considerably cutting travel time to and from Durban and surrounds. This Hillcrest property is a perfect secure family home, offering four bedrooms, all en-suite, and a guest bathroom. 
The two lounges have foldaway doors to an enclosed entertainment area with under-floor heating. The entertainment area opens on to a sun deck and the pool, with a pretty manicured garden with an irrigation system. 
There are also staff quarters
with own bathroom, and a garden shed. Hillcrest has an exciting night life with various clubs and pubs and an ever-changing list of trendy new restaurants. The town is near the awe-inspiring Valley of 1000 Hills, which is in itself a popular tourist destination. 
Shongweni Dam provides visitors with decent fishing and picnic facilities, while the game reserve
proves to be an amazing hiking and birdwatching venue. The Shongweni Polo Grounds is where thrilling games of polo are played, sometimes between our national team and visiting opponents from countries such as Argentina. Inanda Dam, which lies along the route of the renowned Dusi Canoe Race, is also nearby. 
Hillcrest is on the route of the internationally recognised
Comrades Marathon which sees runners finding their way past the town every year. There is also the Springvale Nature Reserve which allows visitors to embark on scenic trails which follow the course of the valley. 
Hillcrest is home to several golf courses including Camelot, Augusta, Cotswold Downs and Tanglewood. If you are looking for somewhere to stay when checking out Hillcrest, or if you’re a horse lover, accommodation is available at the Hillcrest self-catering Bry Rain Stud Cottages – 
These are close to all riding facilities. Bry Rain Stud Cottages have three cosy and comfortable cottages, with communal braai facilities. This is ideal accommodation in Hillcrest and in proximity to the 1000 Hills. 
Also ideal for backpackers and those looking for budget accommodation in the Valley of 1000 Hills
area is The Valley Trust youth hostel /backpackers in nearby Botha’s Hill, which is great for those on a limited budget. This area can get misty and cold in winter, so consider this when you book Hillcrest accommodation.
