The perfect lock-up-and-go community lifestyle in choice homes with customised designs

Nestled just south of Durban in the sleepy coastal town of Widenham, an exciting new retirement opportunity awaits. Set on 100ha of lush coastal forest, with more than 40ha being conservation areas, the Widenham Retirement Village is becoming a sought-after retirement village in KwaZulu-Natal.

With more than 500 homes in development in a choice of four designs and a wide range of optional customisations, each resident’s home will be perfectly tailored to suit them.

The development is perfectly laid out to take full advantage of the rolling green hills, coastal forest and sea views of the property. Widenham Retirement Village is the fourth addition to Hibiscus Retirement Village’s portfolio. Continuing with the successful model laid down by the other three villages, it will include the same facilities.

Bowling greens, tennis courts, a club house, entertainment hall, gym, library, chapel and swimming pools are planned, with a restaurant and coffee shop to be added as the development grows. Frailcare is a cornerstone of the Hibiscus Retirement Village ethos and a comprehensive facility will be built on-site, available to all residents.

Service and safety are of paramount importance so panic buttons, patrolling guards and a bus service to nearby malls and hospitals are all part of the Widenham programme.

All homes are sold on a Life Right basis, and the village continues to own them at all times. This means there are no commissions, legal fees or transfer fees payable and residents are assured their home for as long as they need it.

It also means the Village is responsible for both the interior and exterior maintenance of each home. This is the perfect lock-up-and-go lifestyle and ensures no resident has to deal with pesky repairs when they become necessary.

Furthermore, only one levy is payable every month to cover rates, water, security, garden services and other administration costs. Widenham is ideally situated just 30 minutes from Durban on the N2 and a short 10-minute drive north of Scottburgh. The lush vegetation of the area is ideal for bird and wildlife lovers, with a number of nature reserves waiting to be explored.

Fishing and beach walks are also just a few minutes away. Golfing enthusiasts will be pleased to know the Umkomaas Golf Club is almost on the doorstep, and other famous courses such as Scottburgh, Selborne and Umdoni are just a short drive away. With a proven track record of more than 50 years and three other established retirement villages, Hibiscus Retirement Villages promises residents an unbeatable mature lifestyle with a strong emphasis on community, healthy living and security.

The first Widenham villagers took up residence in October 2018, with occupation growing daily. The community spirit is already very much alive, with impromptu braais, walks and curry evenings already the order of the day. Resident Helen Pieters loves living in the village and says it has made a huge difference to her life. “I meet and talk to more people in a week than I did in three months in my previous complex. It is just so much better than I expected.” 

Phase one is sold out and most of phase two has been sold. One-bedroom apartments are available in phase two at R950 000.

Phase three is available with starting prices at R1.63 million for a two-bedroom home and they are selling fast. To find out more or to book a viewing, call Jenette or Caylin on 066 306 0669 or 066 306 0612.
