Welcome to Settlers Park Retirement Village located along the Sunshine Coast in Port Alfred. Conveniently located, Settlers Park Retirement Village is just 10 minutes from Bathurst, an hour from Grahamstown and about equidistant from both Port Elizabeth and East London (about an hour and thirty to forty-five minutes depending on your speed).
Our friendly and vibrant community looks forward to welcoming you to the Village. With our Residents encompassing folks from all walks of life and from all around South Africa (and a few from outside SA), the Settlers Park Retirement Village community is most certainly not a dull or “retiring” place to live.
