East London, commonly referred to as Buffalo City, is the only river port in South Africa. East London is the gateway to the popular Eastern Cape tourist routes namely the Sunshine Coast and Wild Coast. Balmy summers and an abundance of winter sunshine make East London an inviting holiday destination for all seasons. Sandy white beaches that extend for miles are unpolluted, un-crowded, un-spoilt and enjoyed all year round. The beaches here are some of the finest in the world and play host to international surfing and paddling competitions. East London is the perfect place to retire, or raise a family and is supported by shopping malls, excellent schools, state of the art hospitals, sporting facilities and many cultural landmark sites. Both Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki have their roots in the Eastern Cape. The Sotheby’s International Realty offices are situated in Vincent (alongside the largest shopping mall in East London) and a satellite office in the new Gonubie shopping mall, the Kings Complex. Both offices are staffed with highly experienced and professional property consultants who listen to their clients needs and deliver an honest friendly service to both buyer and seller. Property in East London is varied ranging from entry level apartments to townhouses and family homes to modern mansions. Properties with river access or sea views are harder to come by, making them more valuable. Whatever your property needs, feel free to contact any one of our highly competent agents.
