Garden Route

At In Residence, our award-winning contemporary property portfolio comprises the very best collection of luxury villas in South Africa.


Arguably, the most beautiful expanse of land on the continent is the Garden Route, stretching along the southwestern coastline of South Africa, encompassing the picturesque towns of Mossel Bay, Sedgefield, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.
