Jolly Roger Accommodation

If you’re looking to unwind in the seclusion of the countryside, then the Jolly Roger Accommodation – comprising of charming self-catering cottages in the peaceful and beautiful Tsitsikamma area, is a great idea.

Located in the small, historic settlement of Twee Riviere, outside Joubertina, along the R62, the Jolly Roger is designed to leave you with an appreciation of simple rural living – and fresh air!

It also happens to be among the best ways to social distance. Crowds are unheard of out here and life is enjoyed on a slow pace…

Accommodation at Jolly Roger Accommodation

Guest accommodation at Jolly Roger consists of two free-standing ‘hartbeeshuisies’ – or traditional wattle-and-daub house. Hartbeeshuisies are typically small with little in the line of architectural decoration.

These units – named the Duck & DoLittle cottage and the Pansy cottage, can sleep up to four people comfortably and comprise either one or two bedrooms with large, comfy beds covered in clean linen. The bathrooms come with a shower and basin and complimentary amenities.

Since your stay will be on a self-catering basis, your hosts have ensured that the units have kitchenettes with everything you might need – fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, frying pan, sandwich maker, two-plate stove, cutlery and crockery, pots and pans, clothes iron.

The cottages also feature patios from where you can enjoy the calming views of the area over a meal or a lazy afternoon braai.

See their accommodation rates HERE. Make an online booking HERE.

Facilities at Jolly Roger Accommodation

Facilities at the cottages include portable braai facilities for each unit.

There is also ample, off-street parking for your vehicles.

Not entirely a bad thing if you really think about it, the cottages do not TV or Wi-Fi. There is still full cellphone / internet signal in the area if you want to contact the outside world.

Activities in the Tsitsikamma

You are welcome to go hiking, jogging, cycling or birdwatching on the Nooitgedacht Nature Conservation grounds.

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.


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!
