Our guesthouse is situated less than 100m from the beach in the Wavecrest area of Jeffrey's Bay. It's a short walk to the paddle-out channel at Supertubes and everything else is in close supply. Watching the waves at sunset from the balcony while sipping a cold one is a daily ritual.


We are blessed to have amazing views throughout the guesthouse. From the first floor veranda you look onto the Boneyards section of the point, as well as outside Super's to the left and Magnatubes to the right. From the upper balcony and lounge you have sweeping views of the bay and the stunning African sunrises are magic if you're an early bird. Almost daily we see dolphins from the balcony, and from July-Nov there are loads of migrating whales in the bay.

The guesthouse sleeps 24 people when full, so we are able to maintain a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. There are 5 double rooms, 1 four-sleeper mini-dorms, and an 10-sleeper dorm. All linen is provided.

Our spacious garden is a beautiful place to unwind in, lounging in the hammocks under our traditional Xhosa-style 'boma', sun-baking amidst the tropical plants,or sharing tales with other travellers

The garden is set in a zen-style, and has a mix of sub-tropical plants and a wide variety of cacti and aloes, as well as blue-berry bushes, chilli bushes and an array of herbs and other small produce that are used in our evening meals. There is a small camping area that comfortably accomodates around three tents.

Everyday the famous Ubuntu Free Breakfast is available from 8am until 10.30am.
Each night we cook a large, traditional African meal, and we invite our guests to experience some of South Africa's many delicious local flavours.
Our fully-equipped and modern kitchen is also for use of all our guests who wish to prepare their own food during their stay
From reception we sell a range of cooldrinks, bottled water and snacks.

In our comfy games room we have a big screen projector for our 8pm movie :) During the day there is a collection of dvd's that can be watched free of charge anytime on the TV. For comfort there are loads of couches, beanbags, pillows, hanging hammocks and mattresses. Foozball coming soon!
