Man and nature together is sustainable

*This content is brought to you by St Francis Links Villas

Located inside the exclusive St Francis Links estate, in the popular Eastern Cape coastal town of St Francis Bay, St Francis Links Villas is a development brought to you by Adrian Gardiner – Founder of the Mantis Group.

St Francis Links Villas is an opportunity for you to own your own slice of paradise in the most sought-after part of St Francis Bay through the purchase of a sectional title property. Here, your family will have a home for all of life’s phases and all seasons – where every day feels like you’re on holiday. 

“Whilst working with the St Francis Links team over these past couple of years, my team and I have developed an appreciation for the value of this pristine estate, its standards and ethos. We are excited to bring an exclusive and limited opportunity to enhance the already established and growing choice of residential options on the estate.

With the Mantis philosophy of Man And Nature Together Is Sustainable, matched with this beautiful setting, the St Francis Links Villas will cater for a discerning client looking for comfort, views, luxury, security, health and lifestyle choices. It has been a pleasure engaging with the Links developers and board, Jeff Clause and his exco team and it is now my pleasure to introduce you to this turn-key project and our experienced development team.”

“I am fortunate to have the opportunity to oversee the development of the St Francis Links Villas. The development site is stunning – with views overlooking the golf course and framed by the town and ocean in the distance.

This project is certainly close to my heart. Being born and raised in the Eastern Cape, I have fond memories of vacations in St Francis as a youngster, as well as more recently in my adult life with my own family.

I look forward to presenting the St Francis Links Villas development to interested investors looking to make St Francis their home, be it for permanent residence or for vacation purposes.”
