On the doorstep of one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Oasis’ luxury sectional title apartments make retiring in Cape Town an easy choice
WORDS AND PHOTOS – SUPPLIED
Over the past 14 years, Oasis Retirement Resort has proved to be one of the most popular retirement resorts in the Western Cape. Consisting of six high-rise apartment blocks housing one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments for independent living, the resort is conveniently situated at Century City, close to the CBD and the V&A Waterfront, as well as the Southern and Northern suburbs.
Within easy reach of many popular beaches, wine farms and leisure spots, Oasis Retirement Resort is central to what Cape Town has to offer. Century City itself is a “city within a city” with an abundance of shopping and leisure options, health facilities and other professional services nearby. The resort is also a stone’s throw from the unique Intaka Island, which consists of a series of wetlands and manmade islands. The apartment blocks tower above magnificent landscaped gardens, streams and lawns, with beautiful views of Table Bay, Table Mountain, the Durbanville hills and the Hottentots Holland Mountains.
The centrally situated clubhouse is surrounded by trees and water features. This state-of-the-art facility is the heart of the resort, housing a library, a restaurant, a coffee bar, a billiards room and a multipurpose events room, as well as lounge and private dining areas where residents can meet up with old friends and make new ones. The gym incorporates a 25m heated indoor pool, the latest gym equipment, a sauna and a steam room. The Oasis Care Centre within the resort is a key factor for many people purchasing in this development. It provides four phases of care, including a physical rehabilitation wing licensed with the Board of Health Funders of Southern Africa; assisted living; frail care; and Alzheimer’s/dementia care. Very few facilities in the country offer such a range of care options in a five-star environment.
The on-site sales team recently completed five sales to the total of R21,845,000 in only six weeks. These include a large eighth-floor three-bedroom apartment with mountain and sea views; two two-bedroom apartments in the two original blocks, Palm Springs and Palm Grove; a large almost-new two-bedroom apartment in the sixth and final block, Palme Vue; and a large east-facing two-bedroom apartment that was sold at full asking price just after it was listed. The resort benefits from a triple layer of security: Century City hosts a 24-hour CCTV control centre and patrols, whereas the resort has its own complement of guards and concierges at the entrance gates as well as at the apartments blocks.
Sales and rental demand is strong because of the desire for safe, secure living in a luxury environment that offers independent living with the peace of mind that excellent back-up systems are in place. The clubhouse facilities, gym and indoor pool are slowly opening up in keeping with the easing of Covid-19 restrictions and residents are once again enjoying the social interaction the resort offers – but within strict distancing and best-practice guidelines. Being able to walk in the beautiful landscaped gardens next to running water with prolific birdlife allows residents to “smell the roses” without having to leave the resort.
