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 8 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.

                  We loved De Ware Jacob. This picturesque facility is gorgeous from the beautiful laid out gardens to the tastefully designed cottage. Its very quiet which is great for people who come from the busy part of the city (even weird in the beginning). The hosts are friendly and amazing there in the background if you need anything. If you need a quiet break. Would highly recommend. Suited to entire family

                  We loved everything about our stay, the cottage is well equipped and beautiful designed/interior, the peaceful environment, friendly host, beautiful gardens, nice walk to the beach. I would only recommend the WiFi be reachable in the cottages as well.

                  Diane and Ian have created an eco-friendly paradise in the picturesque West Coast village of Jacobsbaai. From the designer indigenous gardens nourished by grey water from the showers, to the jacuzzi and swimming pool fed by rain tanks, this weekend get-away proves that being environmentally friendly does not compromise comfort and aesthetics. We stayed in Luxury Fisherman Cottage C, the smallest of the units and the most romantic. The suspended double bed, the fire place, the private outdoor braai area and the adirondack chairs on the stoep outside the bedroom overlooking the pool were perfect...

                  This beautiful unspoilt beach in Jacobs Bay still retains the typical, warm West Coast holiday village feel. The sandy shores are perfect for long walks and the Atlantic waters ideal for water sports and swimming, albeit quite icy.

                  Bluewater Bay is a beautiful stretch of beach that is great for swimming, fishing and surfing. In peak season the beach is patrolled by life guards, and there is a kids playground and ablution facilities available.
