The Islands Estate, situated on 102 ha of prime land on the southern banks of the Hartbeespoort Dam adjoining Pecanwood Golf Estate, is aptly referred to as South Africa's inland Riviera. The property is developed as a marina, a key feature being a system of canals - six kilometers of navigable water at various points in the estate, with islands and jetties to accommodate boats. The canals meander between exquisitely designed waterfront homes. The water in the canal is continuously circulated through an artificial wetland system consisting of a series of interconnecting dams covered with water-loving plants and reeds to ensure water quality of a high standard.Access from the canals to the Hartbeespoort Dam is made possible by means of bi-directional water locks, with a similar system connecting the lower and upper canals. The bi-directional water lock allows for lowering or rising of six boats at a time (three up and three down) at the two water locks.
The developers were mindful of the environment in all aspects of the development of the Estate. Many of the indigenous trees were protected and a large number were successfully translocated to parkland areas. The development made provision for an eight hectare park to be created as a communal area
