Our Reviews

Beautiful beaches with easy access.  Relaxed scenic view, child and pet-friendly.  The pool is clean and inviting.  We love Dumela.  Flats are very neat and you can walk straight onto the beach from Dumela. Margate is our favourite destination.  We were very impressed with Dumela and had a great time.  I feel that the pictures on the website do not do justice to our beautiful flat.  Dumela is peaceful and tranquil, The braai area, kids play area, and swimming pool, simply the best place for a family.  Margate is always nice, good weather, we loved our stay, Zest staff were very helpful and friendly.
