The company was founded in 1984 by Marcelle and David Jones, and traded under the name of “53 7 th Avenue” until 1994 when the name was changed to Quantum Sun Leisure Options. During those early days both partners were situated in Johannesburg and sold the Umhlanga Sands, Beacon Island and Cabana Beach.
In 1987, the partners moved to Beacon Island Resort for almost two years and introduced for the first time the concept of timeshare rentals which were used to enable prospective purchasers to enjoy “try and buys” at the Beacon Island Resort as a means of introducing them to what was then a relatively new concept – timeshare. The Jones’s returned briefly to Johannesburg for the launch of the Drakensburg Sun and then moved to the Cabana Beach in Umhlanga where they also introduced the rental “try and buy” concept and coupled this with “the plus bus” promotion which operated between Johannesburg and Umhlanga and enabled timeshare prospects to enjoy the timeshare concept over weekends on location.
With over thirty years of background in the timeshare industry ,specifically with the Southern Sun/Tsogo Sun resorts, Quantum Sun has gained an unprecedented knowledge of the industry and the ability to give unbiased views on these top products that are available for rental and re-sale.
Quantum Sun’s years of experience in the field have resulted in a large database of holiday makers that come back to us time and again, year after year. These holiday makers have enjoyed many years of exceptional, hassle-free holidays renting Timeshare weeks through us. Also as a Timeshare owner you can entrust your Timeshare holdings to us to rent on your behalf, enabling you to enjoy alternative holidays in South Africa or overseas.
