The gated community of Whale Rock Heights incorporating Summer Place is situated on several hectares of gently sloping land with a predominantly north eastern aspect.

Originally developed by a Belgian consortium, all 111 stands are now privately owned with 54 stands currently having been fully developed and 17 stands in the process of new builds and plan approvals.

Close attention is paid to maintaining harmonious architectural design and building standards, with all building plans requiring pre-approval by the estate architect, home owners association and the relevant municipal authorities. Although Whale Rock heights does not have a designated builder, all builders must be members of the NHBRC and approved by the home owners’ association. ┬áNo commercial activity is permitted within the estate.


Security is contracted to a registered security company and enforced by means of an electrified fence and 24/7 entrance control. The perimeter of the estate is monitored by 48 state-of-the-art CCTV cameras linked to the guardhouse at the entrance to the estate. Telephonic and radio communication with the guard house is maintained at all times as there is a 5kw battery backup system to ensure the cameras, electric fencing and communication systems are operational during load shedding. Frequent day and night patrols are carried out by the security staff. Telephonic and radio communication with the guard station located at the entrance to the estate is maintained.

maintained infrastructure with high quality clay brick roads and park pathways , subdued
street lighting and attractive gardens along sidewalks and the traffic circle.
