South African celebrities and sports stars have made Dainfern their home including Magnus Heystek, Ray Jennings (former SA Cricketer and Cricket Team coach), SA Rugby Player Ray Mordt, John "Shoes" Lesiba Moshoeu (SA Footballer) and Miss South Africa Suzette van der Merwe. Captains of Industry also call Dainfern home as the safety and security of their families are of paramount importance to them. Dainfern is a preferred choice of all international companies to house their expat employees who are on contract in Dainfern.

One of the best-selling features of Dainfern is and has always been the security of the Estate. Residents are able to live their lives with no anxiety. The Estate enjoys a 24 hour, seven day a week security service that is strengthened by a leading paramedic service. The Estate has a 7.5km perimeter fence that has microphonic sensors, 24 cameras and a highly sophisticated access / egress system. Families are able to spread their wings and children can ride their bikes, play soccer on the Oval, play in the parks, play tennis or squash or spend an activity filled afternoon in one of two pools without looking over their shoulders.

A beautiful Clubhouse with its modern facilities including a restaurant, Members’ Lounge, Halfway House and conference facilities completes the picture. Business people are able to host conferences, product launches and team building events for their clients and staff in a secure setting with added features such as a delicious lunch, a game of golf or sundowners overlooking the river. For residents there is nothing better than spending a tranquil Saturday or Sunday morning on the deck having breakfast with an unparalleled view of exquisite beauty spread out before you.

Complimentary Lifestyle events take place throughout the year and are an important element in forging a strong sense of community – annual events include The Easter Egg Hunt, Mother’s & Father’s Day celebrations, a Christmas Market, Halloween Trick or Treating, and Carols by Candlelight. The DHA host a Family Fun Day at the Pavilion every so often which sees over 2000 people descending on the Pavilion for a day of fun, entertainment and shopping.
