Overview

The Homestead is a Margate guest house offering guests luxury accommodation and breath-taking sea views.

Margate is a popular seaside town on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, about 135km from Durban (a drive of roughly an hour and twenty minutes) and 695km from Johannesburg (or just over seven and a half hours drive).

The Homestead boasts nineteen magnificent rooms, including standard and executive suites and an exquisite Honeymoon Suite. Large, light and airy, you'll feel like you're living a glamorous Riviera lifestyle as soon as you check in. With your suitcases safely deposited in your suite, it's time for you to enjoy your Margate beach holiday.

From the 3 spacious balconies, found on every floor, you can sit back and take in the splendid sea views, from Lucien Beach all the way down to South Broom. Enjoy early morning coffee while watching the sun rise over the Indian Ocean. Watch the fisherman casting their rods from the piers or heading out on their boats for some deep sea fishing. After breakfast, grab your costume and towel and hit the beach - The Homestead is within easy walking distance - and when you're done, head home to escape the heat of the day in your luxury Margate accommodation. Wash off the sand in your suite's gorgeous bathroom (most rooms have a spa bath), enjoy a light lunch and then flop into an armchair or get cosy on the couch with some good holiday reading. After a nap in a big, comfortable bed with cool, crisp linen, you'll feel refreshed and ready to tackle the afternoon's activities. In the early evening, perch yourself on a deckchair on the balcony and take in the sunset and listen to that soothing sound of waves breaking on the shore, while sipping a glass of chilled white wine. Or, if you prefer, head out to try one of the many restaurants in Margate.

A stone's throw away from Margate's stunning Blue Flag beaches and centrally situated to Margate's main attractions, The Homestead is the perfect place from which to explore all that the Margate and surroundings has to offer.

Walk to Margate beach, a safe, protected bathing beach, or take a short drive to one of the many other beaches nearby - Ramsgate; Shelly Beach, St Michaels-on-Sea and Uvongo.

Apart from sun and surf, there are shops, restaurants and pubs, diving, snorkeling and activities aplenty for adrenalin junkies.

Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Guest Comments

This place is a gem. It is stunning and has better facilities than most guest houses, is very polite and always willing to assist. Best of all it's close enough to walk to the beach and restaurants.

- Lerato Mpetshwa

The staff were incredibly curteous and helpful. Even when we showed up 3 hours after our arrival time they still gave us the best treatment. The Homestead's location is great as it is within walking distance of the best restaurants and the beach. I would definitely recommend it to others.
- Thabo Senooane

We were delighted with the guesthouse and treated like royalty. We could lie in bed and look out over the ocean. The facility was neat, clean and beautifully decorated. I would recommend The Homestead to all my friends. Real value for money.
