Stellenbosch at a glance
Stellenbosch is a town in the Western Cape province of South Africa, situated about 50 kilometres east of Cape Town, along the banks of the Eerste River. Stellenbosch is recognised as the second oldest European settlement in the province, after Cape Town.
The town became known as the City of Oaks or Eikestad in Afrikaans and Dutch due to the large number of oak trees that were planted by its founder, Simon van der Stel, to grace the streets and homesteads.

Popular Stellenbosch Suburbs
Some of the most popular residential Stellenbosch suburbs include:
One of Stellenbosch’s defining features is the world-famous Stellenbosch University. The University is a public research university that was established in 1866. Stellenbosch University designed and manufactured Africa’s first microsatellite, SUNSAT, which was launched in 1999.
Stellenbosch University also has a high impact on the residential Stellenbosch property market – both in sales and rentals. Many students’ parents opt to rent or purchase Stellenbosch houses, flats and townhouses for their children’s accommodation during their tenure at Varsity. These Stellenbosch properties are often let out by the parents thereafter and with the popularity of the area (particularly with Cape Town property purchasers) the owners often enjoy the benefit of the assets capital appreciation when they opt to re-sell.
The buzz or vibe of the university is evident throughout Stellenbosch and will ensure that buying a property in Stellenbosch will always prove to be a good investment.
