Having lived on the West Coast for a long time, moving into the centre of the city was a wonderful change. There are so many advantages to being in a village like this – lock up ‘n go, 24 hour security, new and interesting people to get to know and all the services we could want or need. The staff are amazing – they all seem to have a ‘can do’ attitude. We’re so enthusiastic about living here that our friends want to buy here as well. I have found that Berghof’s proximity to theatres, shopping centres, hospitals, buses, the mountain and even the seaside has made it an ideal place to retire to.
As a resident of the Rathfelder, I can enjoy living in a safe, secure environment surrounded by well tended gardens. Mealtimes also provide the opportunity to interact with other residents and make friends.
What can I say about Berghof Retirement Village! I’ve loved being here from the moment I moved in, in mid 2018. The location – right in the middle of the city bowl with all its various benefits, a stunning view of the magical Table Mountain, a sweet garden with our own river that runs through it, staff who are such a blessing – each and everyone of them! And management , Razier and Elisabeth who must certainly be some sort of angels in disguise. So what’s not to love. Mostly I love the independent living aspect of Berghof – I have my own “home” and I can do what I like. I can mingle with the residents – or not! We have activities on a regular basis which for now I don’t partake in a lot – but 5 years from now – just watch me. Anyone who “dis-likes” the idea of an “old-age-home” must come and have a look for themselves. That IS NOT what we have here at Berghof! In doubt – well then, come over to flat no 401 and see for yourself.
Ease of living at Rathfelder Village – An unknown hidden gem for retirement life. Security, beautiful gardens and proximity to all of Cape Town. Make me highly recommended living here.
