“"HEAVEN ON EARTH"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

Wow JayBay house!! what a wonderful experience indeed from the get go, from being welcomed by the owner Adri who very nicely explained where we will be staying (our room) to where all the hot spots are in Jeffreys bay. The rooms have a homely feel to it, yet the luxury of being on holiday, a home away from home with all the bells and whistles. The breakfast is absolutely amazing with Adri preparing the breakfast herself to your exact specification, every morning you get a freshly baked bread (which we will miss, thanks Adri), but what stole our hearts is every morning she would set a special place for our 2 year old boy with his very own plastic knives & forks and make sure his comfy, a big heartfelt thank you Adri. We do recommend JayBay house as it was a top experience comlimented with top service and very friendly staff. Take care Adri and again THANK YOU!! Marc, Candice & Mikhail Bosch.

Room Tip: Room leading to pool and dont stress about the pool as Adri keeps a net on there at all times that y...

There's nothing to fault at JayBay House. The owner Adri goes out of her way to ensure you have a lovely stay and that her customer service ticks all your boxes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue and/or to stay there again!

This was our first B&B on our 2 week trip over from the UK. We had high hopes & we certainly weren't disappointed! From the lovely welcome we received on check-in, to the ease of free parking & great location near to the centre of town - everything was perfect.
We were in SA for our 2nd honeymoon & we were even given a bottle of champagne in the room. Our bags had been lost at Cape Town airport & we had to survive 3 days without them. It wasn't really a problem as we just bought some new stuff from the plentiful surf shops in J-Bay!! Then, we came back from a full day out & our bags had miraculously arrived into our room, along with the champagne!
We were so well looked after & the breakfasts here are superb with your own freshly baked bread (still warm!) wrapped up on your table! The views over the bay are wonderful, our room had everything we could have wanted and the bed was huge!
The only negative was that we couldn't find our way to the pool & it seemed to be covered over. Wasn't really a problem though as J-Bay has the best beaches we found in SA!
Would definitely recommend JayBay House & thanks for our wonderful stay.

We stayed here as it was an excellent location near to where our family was staying in jeffreys bay. It is modern style, very clean with secure parking & great breakfasts - every day you get your own freshly baked mini loaf at your table. A great base to come back to if your enjoying the beach & surrounding area, and is within easy walking distance of shops , restaurants & beach.

Friendly staff, room had a nice sea view, safe environment. Limited breakfast choice, hygienics bathroom could be improved. Early and overkill (read: unwelcome) of check-out time signboards in the room.

We picked JayBay as a practical one night stopover on the way to Shamwari – it served the purpose very well. Well located to walk to the restaurants etc, good breakfast, and all very well run by Adri at a reasonable price. Our room was on the ground floor giving us easy parking outside and our own direct entrance. Recommended.

This was our Annv. trip. We got here real late at night, about 1AM (did not have GPS & Were unable to Calculate exact distance from Cape Point, so ended up driving 900kms getting to J BAY), the owner Adri was extremely Kind & Considerate to still give us instructions on where to Park, Left us a set of Keys & Directed us right to our room over the phone that late.
The room was Delightful- the most comfortable bed which gave us Magical Sleep. The bathroom was so tastefully done with separate shower & Tub & toiletries. Tea/ Coffee/ Minibar facilities with a lovely Balcony sit out.
The breakfast area was super blissful on the 1st floor with lovely views of J Bay Beach. There was something special about the layout, presentation & design of the dining area. The hot breakfast was lip smacking with the most amazing Fruit, Muesli & Yogurt served in a wine glass.
Free wifi in rooms, brochures kept in the reception area, set of keys to open the remote controlled gate to come & go as per your time plan - makes this an A1 stay!
Cheers Adri & Keep up the amazing place & Experience!
