Dwarskersbos – is a small village 13km from Velddrif on the way to Elands Bay, a popular surfers beach. It is situated between St Helena Bay and Elands Bay and in good weather, the swell of the waves is not high with no currents – very similar to a bay.

Since its inception in this town in 2011, JubelnJuig, has grown to become a popular self-catering accommodation, offering a peaceful and private surround to holidaymakers who use it as base for day trips in and around the coast. It also serves as home away from home with its warm and homely furnishings and one can be at peace for longer stays.

Families from the city will find it a source of many fond memories for years to come.

“JubelnJuig still offers a very good deal to guests who are interested in tranquillity and only want to chill,” explains the owner, Mariette, who also happens to be a talented artist. See some of her work here.  

“My self-catering unit is an extension of my home and exudes the love I have for people and sharing with them, some of what I am privileged to regard as my own.  “Sharing God given peace is a privilege and a pleasure. Here I offer you peace and quiet – a simplistic lifestyle. Come and find your feet.  Wherever we find ourselves, there is a reason for your being there.

“Come and recharge your batteries – take a breather, before you continue on your way.”

Many of their previous guests had many wonderful things to say about the house, the facilities, the location as well as the excellent hospitality they received from the owner.

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!
