Once Upon A Tide is a charming guest house located in Jacobs Bay, a picturesque West Coast village, surrounded by natural fynbos, and within close proximity to Vredenburg and Saldanha. It is within easy reach of Cape Town, making it a popular weekend getaway destination.

In Room Facilities:

Accommodation is offered in a choice of 3 bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and a private entrance from the garden. The bedrooms are furnished with either 2 three-quarter beds or a queen-size bed while the en-suite bathrooms are each fitted with a shower.

There is also a family room with a king-size bed, 2 three-quarter beds and an en-suite bathroom with a bath. The room has its own entrance and a beautiful sea view.

Area Information:

The isolated Jacobs Bay, just north of Saldanha Bay, is less than 90 minutes' drive from Cape Town along the R27. Locals and tourists alike call this area "Namaqualand by the sea" and the countryside around Jacobsbaai does indeed turn into a wildflower tapestry in spring.

Jacobsbaai might be small but it boasts 7 different bays, each with its own personality. Jacobsbaai has a sea frontage of 2km with sandy and rocky bays that are home to a variety of seafood, such as mussels, abalone, and crayfish. The coastal fynbos supports a variety of wildlife including jackal, duiker, steenbok, and tortoise. Bird watching is popular, especially during the migration season and Southern Right whales and dolphins can be spotted along the coast.

Property Facilities:

There are tea- and coffee-making facilities available in the bedrooms while meals can be provided by prior arrangement and at an additional cost. Guests have access to Wi-Fi, a communal dining area as well as a lounge with a TV and 2 fireplaces.

For those who want to make use of self-catering facilities, there is a fully equipped kitchen.

Attractions:

Activities in the area include boating, fishing, diving, hiking, dune riding, whale watching in season, and birdwatching.

Our stay at Once Upon a Tide was very pleasant. The accommodation was very good and comfortable. It had everything we needed. And our hostess, Gisella, was very friendly and helpful. All in all, a great stay.

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.
