    Default Accommodation in/near Stellenbosch.

    Good evening all,
    I want to proof a point to SWAMBU, by showing her that the forum is good for more that info regarding 4x4`s.
    Our situation: My wife received an offer of employment at the university and would love to take the opportunity. My employer are happy to let me work in the western cape (we just need to over come some logistical hiccups). She needs to start in Jan and are looking for accommodation until our house in Gauteng are sold so I can move down permanently.

    She is willing to drive a bit to work and back if the rent are fair.
    Requirements:
    1) Safety
    2) Safe parking for her vehicle and bike.
    3) Safe parking for when I visit.
    4) Will be nice if the place is furnished. So that we do not have to own double of everything.

    Thank you in advanced.

    Just as an backup, what areas are worth looking at should we not be successful in Stellenbosch? Especially for when I move down.

    Kuilsrivier is viable as an alternative or Brackenfell

    South of Stellenbosch look at De Wijnlanden - if you search on Property24 and type in De Wijnlanden, you'll get a list. About 15km from city centre but more affordable, nice new developments going up.

    Enjoy, and welcome!

    Somerset West/Strand/Gordon's Bay are also alternatives to CL, but the traffic to & from Stellies is a bit of a nightmare.

    There are some new developments in the farm areas around Stellenbosch, but the closer you get to town, the more expensive it will get. And traffic is still a nightmare.

    Jamestown is also not a bad option.

    Thank you all, we just realized that the nursing campus is in Bellville. So we are starting fresh to search. At least I was informed that it is a bit cheaper than Stellenbosch.

    Thank you, the university suggested welgmoed and durbanville, but surely that miss judge the salary they offered with the prices some of the rents in those area`s.

    Will see how time/budget allow and maybe fly through later this month and have a look at some places we found.
