About De Ware Jacob

De Ware Jacob has 4 private separate luxury-cottages for guests that are fully equipped for self-catering, on a 2.4-hectare smallholding covered in fynbos. 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 5 minute walk down a gravel road, and you have the ocean right at your feet.The property is able to accommodate up to 10 people and extra camp beds can be arranged for children. 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. A braai room with a large indoor fire place, bar counter, and full kitchen facilities opens onto a wooden deck with Jacuzzi and Swimming Pool, making this the perfect entertainment area for larger groups and families. 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.

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.

                  Great little establishment in Jacobs Bay - easily one of the best self-catering options in the region! Everything about this booking was extremely professional and well managed - from first contact following our booking request, follow-up communication to keep us updated, check-in, our stay, and finally check-out - Ian and Diane clearly understand the hospitality industry and have done incredibly well to create this special place in the tiny town of Jacobs Bay.Well worth a stay - especially if you are exploring the West Coast and looking for a creative, comfortable, immaculately clean, and...

                  Thank you Ian and Diane for your hospitality and making me feel so at home. De Ware Jacob is a beautiful safe haven which includes a tranquil enviroment, connecting with nature and with God. The units are extremely comfortable and so unique, each have their own story. I highly recommend De Ware Jacob if you need to get away from the city life and need to spend time with yourself and be amongst true authentic people.

                  We had the absolute best time here as a family, celebrating my mom’s 60th birthday. Each couple was in one of the four cottages, and then we could enjoy the communal swimming pool, braai area and jacuzzi together as a family. It was an ideal set-up! Ian was very warm and welcoming and helpful. We can’t wait to book our next family holiday here.
