    About me

    I live in a stunning quaint holiday village some 50 km from Port Elizabeth, a city on the Eastern side of South Africa named Colchester.

    Wilma, my better half, and I live in a luxury home (that I built myself) situated on the banks of the Sundays River Mouth.

    We have converted our home into a Guest House as well as having a seperate AA Superior rated guest house on the riverfront property.

    I'm primary a financial advisor who has been in the Finance industry for over 40 years and trade under the name of Robin van den Berg & Associates Financial Advisors.

    Secondary to that, Wilma and I own and run 19 Guest House units, mainly in a town in central south Africa, on the banks of South Africa's largest lake, Lake Gariep.

    Although I'm well over age 60, I have no plans to retire, simply enjoying my life and all the action related to it.

    My hobbies include fishing and riding my Yamaha Jetski on the mighty Gariep Dam Lake. Lots of fun in the sun.
