About the neighborhood
We live in a peaceful, friendly part of Gordon's Bay where neighbours actually greets each other by name. The Yard is 5min walk from the main beach. At the beach you will find a variety of restaurants. We have 2 small shopping centres around the corner, where you will find almost everything you need. We are not on a main road so fortunately there is not a lot of traffic. If you want to venture out a bit, there is a lot of scenic drives and walks in the Helderberg Area.
Getting around
Getting around Although there is always a lot of taxis/shuttles available, the best way to get around here is in your own vehicle.
