              Absolutely loved my stay at Jambo and 100% would stay here again. Barry and Minna were so welcoming and always made themselves available to provide local tips or check in/out. The room was lovely and with air conditioning and the house is in a very safe area. An added bonus of Jambo is the crowd it tends to attract, the other guests were friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them.

              L'excellent accueil et les bons tuyaux des propriétaires concernant les restaurants/bars des environs, le calme du jardin, une décoration osée mais réussie, et la proximité du front de mer

              Séjour parfait à tous points de vue dans un lieu magique où l'on se sent comme chez des amis, j'y séjournerai à nouveau avec grand plaisir

              Sehr nette Inhaber, die immer einen Tipp für Aktivitäten hatten. Auch kümmerten sie sich intensiv, wenn man eine Ausflug oder einen Fahrer oder ähnliches buchen wollte. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Bei unserem nächsten Aufenthalt in Kapstadt werden wir wieder dort übernachten!!
