Residents of the Month

Okkie and Gwen Okkenburg


The Okkenburg’s are new tenants at La Récolte, they are devoted parents and grandparents. We are delighted to have them as residents of the month for the last edition in 2021.


We would like to know more about the Okkenburg’s

Okkie: "We have been married for the past 59 years.

I was born and bred in Clifton and Gwen comes from George.

I was in banking for 40 years and Gwen was in the teaching profession.

During my many years in banking, I was employed at various branches in the Western, Eastern Cape and Border areas. Wherever I was employed Gwen was fortunate enough to get a teaching post."


What do you do for fun?

In our free time we love visiting our two daughters and grandchildren.

Our one daughter Rene has three boys and lives in Stellenbosch.

The other daughter Janine lives in Camps Bay and has two daughters.

We also love visiting the Wine Estates around this area, Stellenbosch and Somerset West.


Why did you decide to retire at La Récolte?

Okkie: "After Gwen and I were seriously ill

with Covid we decided to sell our property

in a security complex in Sonstraal.




We wanted to remain in the same area, so

we decided to purchase a unit in La Récolte.

We have been very happy here since we

moved in at the end of July
