Interaction with guests
I love the fact that my guests feel at home. As I live on the premises, I am here most of the time if they need assistance, unless I need to run errands. Latest book-in time is 21:00 unless prior arranged. Check out time is 10:00am.

About the neighbourhood
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.

Turn left and drive till you reach a robot and connect with the R27 to Velddrif. Turn right & drive til you pass Engen Garage on your left with turnoff to Langebaan.

Drive on till last road Mauritz Rd. Turn right, 3rd house on the right. Drive into back where rooms and receptions is located.
