Absolutely love it here. I have been here a few times and brought my fiance for a last minute get away. They even put us in an a-frame because of our tent issues. Would recommend them to anyone I see 😁❣️

I really enjoyed our stay at Jacobs Bay Backpackers. Everything I needed was there and plenty of shady places to braai. It was clean and not noisy with friendly people. It is well situated along the West Coast

Last minute booking for the long weekend. What a surprise!
Jacobs Bay is not only beautiful but so conveniently located for travelling to other places along the west coast.
The backpackers is beautifully maintained, the staff are super accommodating, caring and friendly. The rooms are basic and clean, the shower facilities and bathrooms are well maintained. They are many communal braai areas and a shared communal kitchen that is well stocked. Bring your own glasses and sharp knives if needed.
I will definitely return for the very affordable and homey feel the Plot has to offer!

Our stay was awesome. All amenities were clean and we loved the whole ambiance of this place. The owner and her son are two amazing people and our group will be going back there some time in the future.
Thanks

Camped for 3 nights, very nice place, but because it is so close to the sea the winds are extremely strong and the tent does not want to stay up. There is no good spot to anchor your tent properly, as a result these winds keep pulling out the tent pens.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

My friend and I stayed in the stone house, which is a cozy room with a double and a single bed. The shared bathrooms are clean and in good condition, and the kitchen is very well equipped. We had the choice of several braai areas, some very communal and one more private. Trish and Marcel are so welcoming and friendly and we had a great time sharing a braai - Marcel even brought out his guitar. Animal lovers will adore the friends dogs. The pixie garden is beautifully crafted - a labour of love indeed.

Thanks for a wonderful stay and always being available. We are definitely coming back.

Jacobsbaai is such a beautiful little town. It was exactly what we need to unwind. It is not too far from Cape Town and the spring flowers were amazing.
