Shaloha Guesthouse, a truly unforgettable experience

Jeffreys Bay is justifiably one of the best holiday destinations of South Africa, with surfers and people flocking in from all over the world for its legendary waves, sunshine, dolphins, surfer points, classic reefs and game reserves. It is the idyllic place for holidays.


Boutique Beachfront Guesthouse

Located along Flame Crescent in the upmarket beachfront suburb Wavecrest, Shaloha Guesthouse offers both deluxe and modern accommodation choices to anyone looking to spend a day or two in J-Bay, as the town is fondly called by locals.

Anyone includes individuals travelling to the town for business or pleasure – or both, as well as families, groups and romantic couples.

Given its location, Shaloha Guesthouse is a mere stone’s throw away from the ocean.  

The guesthouse is situated at a prime spot – the ‘Supertubes’ (or surfer’s spot), where the Billabong Pro international surfing competition is held annually.

I found their communal areas spacious and include a large dining area, a comfortable lounge area with a TV, a fully-equipped self-catering kitchen, which opens up to an outdoor braai area overlooking the bay.

On the second floor, there is a lounge with its very own library for guests to use and a fully-equipped kitchenette and minibar.

In addition, Shaloha offers five luxury en-suite rooms, each fitted with their own bar fridge, DSTV, high speed Wi-Fi, air conditioning and an expansive deck. The rooms are crisp clean and beautifully-decorated.

From three of the rooms, one can enjoy superb views of the ‘Supertubes’ and the rest of the Jeffreys Bay coastline.

The remaining two rooms overlook the town.


Private sea view balcony

If you are a romantic couple planning a weekend escape to J-Bay, I found the White Milkwood Suite just perfect. It is the ideal Honeymoon suite with its own gas fireplace, free-standing bath, Daybed, sun loungers and of course a view of the bay.

There are plenty of activities to do while on your holiday in Jeffreys Bay, including the Shell Festival, surfing, sandboarding, beach horse trail rides, skydiving and bungy jumping.

Jeffreys Bay also has a handful of exquisite restaurants like Kitchen Windows, Nina’s, J-Bay Bru Co and even a restaurant /micro-brewery, Brewhaha, which are within reach of Shaloha.

Manager, Ross Campbell, says “All of our staff strive to understand and cater for the needs of each guest in order to make the experience an unforgettable one.”

 If you love staying close to the ocean, friendly people, great food and wildlife and want an unforgettable stay in Jeffreys Bay, then I strongly recommend Shaloha Guesthouse.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
