We welcome you to the place where guests arrive as strangers and leave here as friends. Well rested and ready to cope with all that life has to offer them. We are situated on the beautiful West Coast of Africa, 140km from Cape Town. Jacobs Bay is beautiful, tranquil and guests can walk down to the beach. The winters are mild with rain, but we have indoor fire places and the guests enjoy the warmth and just relaxing with a glass of wine or coffee. The nature is exceptional as we have little buck, mongoose, beautiful birds. For the more adventurous we have the Berg River for Canoeing, fishing, ab-sailing and off course we are able to arrange ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Jacobsbaai or Jacobs Bay is a beautiful coastal village from where you are central enough to explore the whole West Coast while using it as a base. The village is tranquil and safe to walk or cycle. The beaches are not crowded over busy periods and children enjoy the open areas and the little bay which is very shallow and nice to play in without big waves as on the main beach. The village exudes PEACE and tranquility and is more geared for nature lovers than commercial shoppers. Although we are 10 minutes away from Mall and general town, we have the best of both worlds.

The winters are long balmy days of about 16-18 degrees with no wind, however we do have a few rainy days as this is essential for the flower season which starts in August. The area is then decked with varied flower species and it is incredibly beautiful. Have a look at the flower photographs posted on the facebook link (website: hidden) People travel from far and wide to enjoy the flowers and the Whales that not only pass on the coast but also calve in the St Helena bay area which is 20minutes drive from Jacobs Bay. The summer is hot and guests should come prepared with enough sun screen and as it is coastal we have a lot of dry windy days. Most people that do not enjoy extreme heat love to come in winter as the weather is so mild then and all is green. We are very central with most town surrounding us within a 25-40km radius - We are close to West Coast Park and The Fossil Park, All other surrounding towns are within 20 minutes drive, towns such as Paternoster, Langebaan, St Helene Bay, Velddrif, Dwarskersbos. Darling and Yzerfontein are 60km away. Quaint little towns such as Hopefield and Morreesburg, an Riebeek Kasteel are all approximate 45 hours drive from Jacobs Bay. A lovely drive out for the day is Cape Town which is 140km from Jacobs Bay. Within 60 - 70km we are surrounded by scenic Game farms, !k Kwathu which is a cultural center of the Khoi San people and original rock drawings can be seen by guided tour. Tours can be arranged to Lamberts Bay where a day fishing trip can be arranged. Informal Day tours can be arranged. Suggest that a car be rented as the area is not within public transport. Within the village, the little shop can be reached on foot and is safe to walk. However the nearest mall is not within walking distance.
