George Houses Flats For Rent
The Western Cape province is home to the city of George, one of the country's major commercial hubs. This metropolitan area, with a population of about 122 000, is a great place to live and experience modern city life. Among its attractions are numerous golf courses, the King Edward VII Library and nearby Tsitsikamma National Park. Those interested in horticulture will enjoy the Golden Route Botanical Garden, and those interested in the city's transportation history will enjoy the steam trains in the Outeniqua Transport Museum.
Family Homes for Rent
House rental prices in George are reasonable. Price alone will not tell you if the house in question is two or six bedrooms. For instance, there are three bedroom homes that rent for 6 000 ZAR to 12 000 ZAR. One can find five to six bedroom homes renting for as low as 9 000 ZAR, and as much as 30 000 ZAR. Many of the homes have multiple bathrooms, two car garages, pools, and sometimes an extra room that can be used as a television room or study. They generally come unfurnished, so a renting family can make a house feel like a home.
Flats for Rent
Flats for rent in George are sometimes listed under 'apartments for rent.' The prices are comparable to those of houses. Prices range from about 1 500 ZAR for some bachelor flats, to 5 000 ZAR. Expect to pay a little more if the flat comes furnished. Flats are ideal for single professionals or couples, perhaps just starting a family, or retiring. Whether renting a house or a flat, always read the details. For example, most rentals do not allow pets. Some require a broker fee, and most will require a deposit.
