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.
