“Peaceful Retreat”
Reviewed March 30, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

It's a great place to relax and get away from it all, and amazingly it's within walking distance to the beach. The beach is just wonderful, and you could say the same thing about the house. The local shops and restaurants are not so far either. Trish and Grant the owners of the house are very kind and helpful.

“SPACIOUS DUPLEX GOOD LOCATION”
Reviewed January 19, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The location in Umzumbe was good - short walk to the beach across the railway line. The duplex was very spacious and well appointed with lovely bathrooms and everything we required in the kitchen. The complex has a pool, which was a godsend for us as we had a couple of very windy days at the beach. Umzumbe is a quiet village but there are restaurants and shops within a short driving distance.

“Very pleasant memories from my stay at The Gallery”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The warm hospitality from the hosts Trish and Grant from the booking to the welcome and throughout the stay until you say your goodbyes would be hard to top. The apartments are spacious, modern and clean and the grounds are park-like with sweeping lawns. Umzumbe is a pretty, quiet village with very good security on a 24-hour basis. The Gallery is close to the blue-flag beach with daily life saver services. The food is amazing and the hostess surprised and spoiled the guests with mouthwatering dishes from her international repertoire, sometimes,influenced by her Italian background, sometimes just good SA cooking.I was also lucky to get a good old braai at the hands of the host Grant. I booked for the 4-day Artescape, which takes place some four times a year. Grant is a renown South African water colour artist and an extremely patient teacher; I had little painting experience and left as a budding artist.

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed September 26, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our stay there was amazing! The accommodation itself was wonderful. It had very modern kitchen and bathrooms, extremely comfortable beds & pillows, beautiful art, everything was very clean and even has a lock-up garage. The owners are wonderfully friendly and accommodating and I would highly recommend it as a comfortable space for a family for an extended holiday or even a romantic getaway for a couple. It is also very close to the beach and we enjoyed a number of lovely walks around. We will definitely go back again.
