Douglasdale Retirement Village, often referred to as DRV or “The Village”, is a sectional title development located in the heart of Douglasdale, close to many amenities and easily accessible from the N1 highway using the William Nicol off-ramp.
The Village is located on either side of a tree lined riverway which gives it a particularly peaceful atmosphere. There are easily negotiated pathways on either side of the river, giving access to 3 dams that are home to several species of water birds and the occasional mongoose, otter and terrapin. Our birding enthusiasts have ample opportunity for identifying many species of birds in this riverine area. We are particularly proud of our Wildlife Sanctuary which nestles between 2 dams and provides breeding and nesting facilities for our extensive bird and aquatic population.

Private lawns are mowed as a service included in the levy. Gardeners are available from our garden service and can be hired on a two hourly basis, to assist in your private garden.
There are 3 dams on the property and these are located in a beautiful wooded riverine area. There are paved walkways along this riverine area that have created a wonderful walking area. This is a popular activity in the late afternoon where you can end up at a dam and watch the waterfowl settle for the evening and watch the sun go down. For the more energetic walkers, there are extended walking routes throughout the Village where you can get good walking exercise in a safe environment.
