Candlewood dates back hundreds of years to the days when logging first commenced in the Tsitsikamma Forest. The eroded path down the steep slope of the property is the original route used by loggers to transport felled logs from the Tsitsikamma Forest to the sawmill on Plettenberg Bay’s Hobie Beach.

Candlewood Ridge offers some of the most spectacular views towards Plettenberg Bay. From the start of the Western Cape’s East Coast of South Africa, the view takes in the Keurbooms River Mouth, along the rocky outcrops to Hobie Beach, the popular Beacon Isle Hotel, followed by the long stretch of white sand of Lookout Beach and along the pristine coastline to the tip of the Robberg Peninsula. From this enviable vantage point on Candlewood, migratory whales and their calves can often be sighted entering the bay.

Plettenberg Bay

“Plett, it’s a feeling!” A seaside town on the garden route in South Africa’s Western Cape, and dubbed the holiday playground of the rich, Plettenberg Bay is the jewel of the Garden Route and is tranquil and charming, hospitable and rather special.

Plett is situated on the coastline of one of the most beautiful bays along the southern coast of South Africa.

Originally christened “Bahia Formosa” (beautiful bay) by early Portuguese explorers, Plettenberg Bay offers miles of sweeping unspoilt golden beaches, a dramatic rocky peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries, towering indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers and sea.

With its exceptional climate and beautiful view sites over the Indian Ocean, Plettenberg Bay is the perfect spot for biking, exploring, watching or just relaxing.

Existing narrow track between the Ridge and the Valley nodes. It traverses unspoilt coastal Afromontane Forest (stunted.) This track can provide pedestrian access between the Ridge node and the lower sections of the property. The track can be used by a narrow wheel based tractor for maintenance purposes.

A Rare Opportunity

Candlewood is unique in that it faces south. This is an advantage in Winter when the warm mid-morning and mid-afternoon sun lights up the unrivalled mountain and ocean views as it warms your back.

Candlewood, with its magnificent views; indigenous forests and a wide variety of fynbos offers a rare opportunity for developers. The varying vegetation, the dramatic topography and the beach access, via a boardwalk, lends itself to a variety of possibilities. Candlewood has a 700m road frontage onto the Keurbooms Road, is 2km from the quaint Village of Keurbooms and only 9km from Plettenberg Bay’s CBD. 

The adjoining 2.77 hectare site of Driftwood, directly across the Keurbooms Road from Candlewood, and complete with bulk services, offers a further opportunity to fulfill a developer’s dream.
