The village is built on four hectares. It has a creche and entertainment area. The houses have exquisite finishes both on the exterior and interior.

One of the farmworkers, Hennie Lekay, said:

What I like about this house is that it's a very smart house with sliding doors. There's a sports field for young people right in front of the house.
