Oasis Life Clara Anna Fontein – Retirement Village Cape Town


Oasis Clara Anna Fontein – Retirement Village Cape Town – was inaugurated in November 2018 with the launch of the Oasis Life brand at the then new Clara Anna Fontein Lifestyle Centre. In the following year in February, construction started on the first of the Rabie’s retirement developments, which has the aim of setting new standards for retirees.

Two years later, the Oasis Life Clubhouse – the heart and soul of the retirement estate – opened to residents on 1st December. Now, phase one is nearing completion and 24 residents have already taken ownership, or are living on the estate.

Nestled along the greenbelt corridor, the magnificent new Clubhouse looks out over the wetland area, set in view of the Durbanville hills on the right and the exquisite Stellenbosch mountains poised in the distant landscape to the left. Opposite the lush greenery, stands the Lifestyle Centre, from which the Oasis Life brand was launched.

Design elements at Oasis Clara Anna Fontein – Retirement Village Cape Town

“The Clubhouse was designed and developed to be an extension of living spaces for residents… A homely place to get together with their families, as well as a centre to socialise in with one another.” said Tomas Wren-Sargent – the architect at Coasite. “The raised rooves allow for natural indoor lighting and volume, enabling spaces that encourage people to visit and interact.”

“The building provides exquisite views of the breath-taking green valley corridor, bringing residents closer to the wonderful natural environment in the greater Clara Anna Fontein area. Within the retirement village – in the northern courtyard – there’s a sheltered gathering space in a stunning garden with a water feature – which is perfect for meeting outdoors all year around.

The building materials are predominantly natural and include stone and timber, which enhance the natural environment in which the clubhouse is set.”

This exquisite Clubhouse provides various spaces of pause and functionality, including a cozy mini-library for the enjoyment of many good books or to browse the internet, a comfortable lounge with a big-screen television, a multi-purpose function room and a wind-sheltered patio. The restaurant offers stunning views from its large picture-like windows – perfect to enjoy with a leisurely sit-down meal or a cup of coffee and pastry.

Residents are in good hands under the professional management of Riana Zeman, the Healthcare Manager, and have 24/7 access to the primary healthcare suites through a separate entrance.

Director at Collaboration, Geoffrey John Bennett, explains the thinking behind some of the interior design: “It aims to create a tranquil and sophisticated atmosphere that doesn’t distract from the exquisite views of the lush wetlands and greenbelt. Joinery items were custom manufactured – offering unique and bespoke ergonomic designs, as well as ensuring durability thanks to the choice of materials and finishes. Each item of furniture is also custom-made with unique fabrics and finishes.”

One of the key foundations of Oasis Life – hospitality – is top of mind for the top team with extensive hotel and catering experience as they manage the retirement estate and Clubhouse. Neil Barry heads up the team as the retirement estate’s Operational Manager, assisted by the energetic Lezette Breedt who’s the Clubhouse Manager and Janine Lourens – the receptionist.

In charge of the superbly-designed and equipped kitchen is Chef Michelle Beirowski, who’s already testing recipes for the Christmas lunch. The restaurant is open from 8am to 5pm (the kitchen closes at 4pm), and also offers take-aways. On Sundays, residents and visitors alike are treated to a delicious carvery buffet of traditional home-made goodness.

Setting the bar high at Clara Anna Fontein – Retirement Village Cape Town

“The launch of the Clubhouse is a significant milestone for the Clara Anna Fontein residents, as well as for the developers. It sets a precedent for what Oasis Life residents can look forward to at this Burgundy Estate development – and others to come.” said Director at Rabie, Miguel Rodrigues. “The look-and-feel, customised furnishings, and all design elements have had the same attention to detail – and will be available in all future Clubhouse and Lifestyle Centres.

When you visit Clara Anna Fontein, you’ll be able to experience the Oasis Life promise – which is delivered with sophistication and excellence. When we say we want you to love your retirement, we’re committed to making it happen!”
