Chas Everitt Cape Town South is the first company in South Africa to highlight waterwise properties.
“This step recognises the substantial investment that many sellers have made in their properties with regard to water efficiency as well as independent water sourcing and storage solutions.
These efforts and investments can cost hundreds of thousands of Rands and a mere passing reference in the property description fails to draw sufficient attention to the investment which has gained enormous importance as the drought has become a crisis in our region. This ‘waterwise’ marketing campaign further serves to raise the awareness of the water situation in our region. We are encouraging other real estate businesses to embrace the idea and follow our lead and use the waterwise logo in their marketing.
Sellers and buyers have already responded very positively to this initiative and we are highlighting these properties in our listings on www.CEI.co.za as well as www.CapeTownProperty.com and www.Constantia.co.za

With kite-making, kite-flying, food stalls, kiddies’ rides, a full programme of entertainment and an eclectic craft market, this is family entertainment at its best.

This is an exclusive offer from Chas Everitt Cape Town South http://www.capetownsouth.co.za/
Fish Hoek beach is the only beach in Cape Town with a special exclusion net, introduced in 2013, to keep sharks out of the swimming area. Sarah Waries, programme manager for Shark Spotters — a world-first programme that works to protect both sharks and water-users explains how this net works and why it’s important.
Fish Hoek is the only beach in Cape Town with a shark net because it has had a number of shark bite incidents. Since 2004 there have been two fatalities and one very serious bite when a man lost his leg (in 2011). There have also been a number of close calls, where surfskis were bitten and people had encounters with sharks.
In October 2011 there were 55 shark sightings at Fish Hoek in one month…It’s the best swimming beach in Cape Town, I would say, but it had this stigma as being “the shark beach”.
Traditional shark nets are designed to catch and kill sharks. Exclusion nets, like the one used in Fish Hoek, just prevent sharks from entering an area. The City of Cape Town’s approach to shark attack prevention is that you must protect people but you must also protect sharks and the environment, and one mustn’t be at the cost of the other. At Fish Hoek we get humpback whales and southern right whales in the middle of the bay, so we didn’t want to put anything in the water that would potentially entangle whales, dolphins, or anything else.
The exclusion net is deployed at Fish Hoek in the summer time, from the October school holidays through to Easter (March/April). In October we just do school holidays and weekends. From November to March we try and put it up every day, but it’s weather dependent — when the wind is too strong or the swell is too big we don’t deploy the net. We aim to have it up for about 20 days per month.
