Located approximately 35km south of Durban on the upper south coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Mooi Hawens is a true safe harbor for the elderly. The initiative to erect these facilities came from the Reformed Church (Gereformeerde Kerk) Durban. They approached the then Gereformeerde Stigting (now Residentia) who built and managed the facilities to date.
The first resident took occupancy on 1 March 1971.
Since then the facility has grown with the addition of Lena de Klerk (frail care facilities), Tabor flats (life right and rental flats) as well as Residentia Blanche Sanders (now Mooi Hawens Youth Resort) children’s seaside resort.
Conveniently situated near to the beach (± 300m) as well as shops, doctors, post office, restaurants, banks, chemists, hospitals and bus routes.
