The bar is stocked and always open,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cristal Cove Self Catering Guest House is situated in Jeffreys bay's dream territory. Hugged by the best beaches and surf spots this country has to offer and just a hop skip and jump away from restaurants, shops and other entertainment.The idea behind this one of a kind Guest House is “the very best at less” we pride ourselves on quality luxury accommodations at a price that everyone can afford.“Nothing is too much and anything is possible” is the motto the friendly hosts live and work by.We have a cosy bar for you to kick back and relax at (or get totally loose) or just play some pool.Grab one of our rental surf boards or our free loan boogie boards and experience our epic beaches, or maybe rent one of our skate boards/sector 9`s/ bicycles and cruise through the town.Re-discover yourself as you explore our beaches and enjoy the tranquillity of this awesome surf town. ... more   less
