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 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 Southbroom. 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. After the beach & relaxing bath or shower, enjoy a light lunch at one of many restaurants and then flop into an armchair or get cozy 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.
In Room Facilities:
Air-con in 4 of our sea view rooms, fans in other rooms. Flat screen TV & Dstv. Mini fridge for own beverages. Coffee tray.
No doubt Margate's biggest attraction, its stunning Blue Flag beaches. The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to some 3849 beaches and marinas in 46 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean. The Blue Flag Programe is managed by a non-government, non-profit organisation, the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and promotes the sustainable development of beaches and marinas. To be awarded Blue Flag status, beaches must meet strict criteria regarding:
Water Quality - including the absence of sewage and waste-water discharges and featuring a low faecal E. Coli count
Environmental Management - beaches must be clean, with plenty of garbage bins, public restrooms and properly maintained buildings and beach equipment
Environmental Education - including information about the quality of bathing water and local ecosystems
Safety and Other Services - including lifeguards, lifesaving equipment, first aid equipment, and management of beach users.
Margate beaches proudly bear this prestigious Blue Flag status, so you can be assured of a safe, happy beach holiday on pristine beaches.
