About De Ware Jacob

De Ware Jacob has 5 private luxury-cottages for guests that are fully equipped for self-catering, on a 2.4-hectare smallholding covered in fynbos. All cottages can make use of the pool and Jacuzzi in the communal area, at no extra cost. Luxury Cottages B & D however have a private wood burning hot tub, also at no extra cost.

The natural fusion of down to earth west coast living, combined with a touch of luxury, is what makes these cottages so special.

A short five-minute walk down a gravel road, and you have the ocean right at your feet. All bedrooms have double beds, white bed linen, bathroom towels and electric blankets for the colder months.

There are fireplaces both inside and outside so you will be assured of a wonderful time, no matter what the weather.

With little bays that are quiet and serene, large breakers crashing against the rocky coastline and a long white beach, Jacobsbaai has something that appeals to everyone. In spring time, the property and the entire town becomes a landscape bathed in flowers.

Wedding Venues: For your small, informal garden wedding we can host a maximum at 30 people on the property.

Family friendly: Large open space to run around and play. Farm animals to visit including: pot-belly pig, dwarf goats, chickens and geese

Romantic: The Luxury fisherman cottages are specially designed with an artistic touch for romantic get-aways. They are very private with own facilities like the indoor fireplace and outdoor barbaque (braai). Jacuzzi for cold winter nights.

Covid Safety Approved: All surfaces are cleaned and prepared according to FEDHASA guidelines. Our staff are fully trained on COVID preparedness.

                      Loved it. A beautiful place. The pictures don't do it justice. Fell in love with the place. Very friendly people. The cottages are very private and beautiful.

                      We felt that Diane was rather pedantic. She came around to the Jacuzzi twice to reprimand us.

                      Was really cozy place but had 2 speed bumps. Firstly there was no gas the nite we arrived so couldn't cook until next morning. The host & hostess gave different info on facilities that we are allowed to be used be guest, so this caused a slight administrational error.

                      I want it to be my secret spot forever. The amazing hospitality of our hosts, the care and attention to each and every detail, the absolutely slice of heaven that it is. I cant wait to go back. Thank you Diane and Ian for the most amazing weekend away for my girlfriends and I. Absolute bliss xxx
