Beach Cabanas Jeffreys Bay
Reviews (4)
4.5 out of 5

Beach Cabanas is on the surfers side of town, a stone throw from the beach and Magna Tubes and 500 meters from Super tubes home to the ASP Billabong Pro. Designated swimming beach being only 200 meters away. You cannot see the ocean from the Beach Cabanas but can hear the waves crashing on the beaches in the evenings and at night.

The Beach Cabanas has 16 self catering units.
8 upstairs
8 on the ground floor.
Units fully serviced daily.
Open 24hrs a day.

We run a professional and friendly business and will see to your every need.

Across the garden from the units is the reception and restaurant. The restaurant serves breakfasts and makes packed lunches on request. Although Beach Cabanas is open 24 hours a day helpful and happy staff will be around the reception / restaurant area between 6.00am and 7.00pm. The night manager who resides on the premises is there to deal with any after hour queries.

The tropical garden which consists of giant strellitzias, palms and evergreens almost surrounds the restaurant and pool area. Water cascades into the pool from a large rock feature, semi covered with large leaved plants and creepers. The cascading water can be heard from all the units. Well placed lights highlight the waterfall, greenery and pool at night.

The premises are secured. Guests are issued with a key allowing them in and out. Vehicle parking is off road. It is in a highly visible and lit up area.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

We stayed five nights to watch the surfing contest and wanted to be close to Super Tubes and restaurants for a reasonable price. And that is what we found in Beach Cabanas. The little Motel is located on Da Gama Road, sufficient parking outside and yes, it is possible to walk around if you have to. We were greeted by the whole family, offering lots of good advice and a map. The room was super clean! The equipment is a bit out of date, but it did not matter to us, you have a kitchenette with more than you need, a big fridge, a good TV with working DSTV, balcony with braai and a big shower. We had an super easy stay, the room is serviced daily. It was quiet at night and block out curtains made me sleep like a baby. It is not a luxurious apartment, but if you there for the surf and a good time, this is a wonderful place!

We stopped over a few weeks ago and literally walked in off the street. They welcomed us warmly and gave us a lovely room with braai facilities. The room was spotless and comfortable. Unfortunately we had to leave early the next morning.
We decided on our last trip to try them again and we were blown away by their helpfulness. Different room this time and consistent with the standard we had experienced the first time. We were surprised with a lovely cup of filter coffee before setting off the next day. Thanks guys!

How did you like the accommodation?

     

We booked a single room for our family of 4. Linda & Jeff were extremely kind in giving us two units with an inter leading door. It was absolutely perfect! The kids loved having their own space and so did we. The rooms were immaculate and serviced daily. I would wake up early, suit up at the place and literally run across the road and in to the surf within a few minutes. It is also walking distance to Graveyards and Supers main breaks from the top of the point. The pool was also very welcoming after a long surf and where the kids spent most of their time.

JBay is a buzzing little town with restaurants and pubs all within walking distance of the Beach Cabanas. The town is also just a short drive away. It's such a perfect location and we will keep coming back.

I stayed here in January 2016 while I was deciding where to stay in Jbay, it's walking distance from groceries and the beach. good location for families and wifi was good, there was a mini kitchen at each unit.
