Finding a work-life balance

Modern life used to mean being ‘plugged in’ 24/7 in a world where work was pervasive and trumped other things in terms of importance. Today, people have understood that a healthy balance between work time and down-time is the golden key to the good life. With the stresses of modern life, people are seeking balance more than ever, and the opportunity to live, work and play in one holistic environment that allows more balance in everyday life.

Gold Coast Estate is a modern premium family estate. Through the amenities offered, the estate gives its residents access to a modern lifestyle suited to their needs and wants.

Work from home

The opportunity to work from home has undoubtably become one of 2020’s most valuable commodities. The challenge is that not all homesteads are designed to support this. The beauty of living in Gold Coast Estate is that you can work from virtually anywhere within the estate. Being able to connect when and where you want to is one of the

key facets to finding balance in your life. The estate is set up for super-fast, seamless fibre to your home, which means your home can become a temporary work zone when you need it. The estate’s common facilities include a modern clubhouse where many lifestyle elements come together. The Business Lounge, within the clubhouse, is equipped to serve the needs of the modern office with Wi-Fi, hot desks and conferencing facilities. With Wi-Fi that extends well beyond the Business Lounge, you can also find a place to work alongside the pool and enjoy Durban’s wonderful warm weather.

Quick and easy access to work-related places and business hubs are important when it comes to living a less stressful life. Whether your work takes you to the business hub of Ballito, the Umhlanga CBD or the King Shaka International Airport – Gold Coast Estate enjoys effortless access to the M4 and other major highways.

Play your own way

As much as Gold Coast Estate is designed to support your work life needs; it also encourages people to embrace and connect with things outside of work. Key to finding balance is having the chance to switch-off and venture outside the house or office, and Gold Coast Estate provides a wealth of family-focused facilities within a safe environment. Your idea of de-stressing may be spending time at the pool with the kids, a walk with your furry friend through the estate’s open areas or perhaps a dip in the warm Indian Ocean. At the estate you can also engage in a range of physical activities at the gym, tennis courts or high-altitude training room. It has been proven that time in nature is beneficial in lowering stress and anxiety levels and is also good for boosting mood. Being located within Sibaya Coastal Precinct, Gold Coast Estate has access to the 350-hectare managed forest. Choose to walk under the tree canopy, watch the birds from one of many bird hides or follow the biking trail through this natural gem – how you engage with it is up to you. Within the Sibaya Coastal Precinct you’ll find many open communal areas which honour the nature of beauty as well as a retail piazza and a modern sports complex.

Gold Coast Estate is designed to support holistic wellness by offering opportunities for engagement with family, friends and community as well as ways to keep fit and active and embrace the outdoors. It’s placement within the Sibaya Coastal Precinct adds even more value when it comes to striking the ideal work-life balance with many opportunities to live, work and play in your own way.
