Location is everything, especially when it comes to uninterrupted sea views and being a stone throw away from direct access to our country’s best beaches. With more beachfront properties than any other holiday option, timeshare owners are in ‘pole position’ to wake up to the tranquil sounds of the ocean.
More beachfront properties
When comparing the number of timeshare apartments to the number of hotel rooms in Umhlanga for example, which is one of the country’s most popular holiday destinations, timeshare accounts for approximately 63% of the accommodation options. Not only are timeshare owners deriving greater benefit from their accommodation offerings, they are also contributing significantly to local revenues through restaurants, entertainment attractions and retail outlets.
A global Oxford Economics Study, conducted on behalf of the American Resort Development Association, revealed that timeshare owners generally spend more than double what a hotel guest spends on local attractions. This is because hotel guests spend the majority of their holiday budget on premium season accommodation rates, while timeshare owners are saving up to 50% on their accommodation that is prepaid over 12 months – which means more available cash for Christmas festivities.
At a quick glance, here are some of the beachfront resorts where timeshare owners will be rejuvenating themselves over the holidays:
Cape Town: Bantry Bay International Resort and The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel.
The Garden Route: Plettenberg Bay: Beacon Island Resort in Plettenberg Bay and Baywater Village in Sedgefield.
Port Elizabeth: Brookes Hill Suites and Hermanus Beach Club.
KZN Wild Coast: Hole-In-The-Wall and La Côte d’Azur in Margate.
Durban beach front: The Palace on the Golden Mile
Umhlanga: Umhlanga Sands, Cabana Beach Resort, The Breakers
Ballito/ Dolphin Coast: La Montagne.
With a plethitude of beachfront options it’s safe to say that timeshare has South Africa covered this summer.
