South Africa's most beautiful new Eco-estate

    Situated on the beautiful KZN South Coast, Margate is home to a brand new 120ha eco-estate known as Serenity Hills.

    The area has seen a significant transformation as Margate has caught a considerable increase in demand for sustainable living and better quality of life over the recent years. 

    Michelle Harris, a licensee for Seeff South Coast, states that it has long been a popular destination for holidaymakers and retirees, but the Covid-pandemic caused a notable uptick in buyer demands.

    Homebuyers Investing in an Estate: 

    Homebuyers look for safety and a quality lifestyle when investing in an estate. But there are other factors that homebuyers take into consideration before moving into an estate:

    1. A central selling point is to enjoy a secure, family-friendly lifestyle with access to open spaces and amenities. 
    2. The property's location, the home's size, and the price.

    About KZN's New Serenity Hills

    Serenity Hills is a low-density estate that ticks all the boxes regarding a desirable estate within an inspiring environment. The estate is home to beautiful natural landscapes that overlook the Indian Ocean, making it an ideal place to call home.

    The lifestyle estate offers residents a secure and sustainable way of life. Surrounded by natural beauty, the estate features lush vegetation and landscapes with a variety of bird, butterfly species and game.

    Serenity Hills Development:

    This remarkable new estate was developed by Vida Capital, Constructionize and the Wenger Family, who are well entrenched on the KZN South Coast. They are also the owners of the renowned "Packshed Restaurant", which forms part of the estate, the Sweetdale trails and the local skills centre, promoting community upliftment.

    Property developer Sam Wenger who has lived on-site for more than ten years said that Serenity Hills is a perfect solution focusing on holistic living. This community provides everything you need to enjoy life amidst subtropical paradise, from quality design and finishes to security and peace of mind.

    Serenity Hills Estate Inclusions:

    Homebuyers can enjoy the best of both worlds as the properties are north-facing for maximum sun exposure and ocean views. Whether looking for a two-bedroom starter home or a four-bedroom dream home, Serenity Hills has something for everyone. Plus, the contemporary finishes and private gardens are second to none, and if homeowners have a furry friend, the estate homes are pet friendly.


    Serenity Hills is the perfect place to call home. This secure gated community offers top-of-the-line security features, like 24-hour security, perimeter fencing, and thermal cameras. Homebuyers and families will always feel safe and sound with on-site access control and security personnel. Additionally, the sustainable living features like gas geysers and hobs, LED lighting, solar panels, and water collection make Serenity Hills the perfect place to live more sustainably and save on utility costs. 

    Sustainability and water security:

    Furthermore, reservoirs on the property will provide water security for residents for up to three months – meaning families won't have to worry about drought conditions affecting their supply. Another great thing is that for a family looking to add further sustainability and water security, property owners have the option to install their rainwater tanks.

    Exquisite Sceneries and growth for Vegetables: 

    This beautiful place is perfect for those who love the outdoors. It includes safe leisure trails for mountain biking, walking and running and a stocked dam for fishing. There's something for everyone to enjoy. 

    And, for those who love to garden, the community is based on the Schrebergärten concept, which provides for the allotment of small parts of a more significant piece of land, which people then rent to grow their vegetables.


    The clubhouse is the perfect place to spend time with friends and family, with plenty of social activities. 

    The award-winning Packshed Restaurant is not to be missed, serving delicious food, wines, and freshly-baked pastries delivered to the houses via a Tuk-Tuk bakery.

    The children's playground is the perfect place for little ones to let off some steam, while the Observation Tower on the highest point in Margate offers stunning views of the surrounding area.

    Community Care: 

    Michelle Harris further states that estate developers know that as their homeowners' age, their needs will change too. And that is why the estate has on-site facilities planned for serviced apartments, frail care, dementia care, and step-down care. No matter the family's needs, the estate will be here to take care of its community.

    Apart from local interested buyers, the estate has also sparked interest from international buyers, making it a diversified place to live in.
