Whimseagull Self Catering Accommodation In Jacobs Bay

Come replenish your soul in a fully equipped holiday home in idyllic Jacobsbaai.

In a world where proper planning is valued, this is one occasion when acting on a whim will leave you with absolutely no regrets. Staying in this fully equipped house in the idyllic Jacobsbaai guarantees the replenishment of your soul.

Jacobsbaai, situated midway between Vredenburg and Saldanha Bay, is an isolated, traditional Cape West Coast Village. It boasts a breathtaking 2 kilometers of coastline, 7 individual bays and lime washed houses against an azure blue sea. The village is well known for its abundance of seafood and the magnificent display of wild flowers that transforms the landscape every year from late winter to spring.

Whimseagull, from whimsical (meaning playfully quaint or fanciful), is a beautiful holiday home only 300 metres from the beach.
Whimseagull offers a stylishly decorated self catering option with extra amenities that include a television, full DSTV bouquet, DVD player, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier, crisp white linen and towels, and an alarm system. The house is extremely generous with space, being equipped to cater for 6 adults. You only need to bring your own beach towels and beach chairs.

The house offers the following:


  • The main bedroom has a king size bed, spacious cupboards and an en-suite bathroom, with a bath and shower. Double doors opening onto the veranda provide a private entrance.
  • The roomy open plan lounge and dining area is ideal for quality family time. The West Coast style fireplace will ensure long, cosy evenings enjoyed with a good book and a glass of wine, or an indoor barbeque with friends and family around the dining table. The dining area is ideally situated between the kitchen, fireplace and lounge to allow for free-flow conversation. Wood for the fireplace and upstairs braai is provided.
  • The kitchen and inter-leading scullery are fully equipped and include an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. Coffee, tea and sugar are provided to help you settle in.
  • There is also a guest toilet and a double lock-up garage.
  • From the large veranda, with patio furniture, the beautiful West Coast sunsets can be appreciated.


  • The second bedroom has a queen size bed and ample cupboard space.
  • The third bedroom is furnished with twin beds, and has built-in cupboards.
  • A second bathroom with a shower services the two upstairs rooms.
  • The large loft area provides a second living area and is furnished with two large couches, a television, DSTV decoder and DVD player. Double doors open onto the patio (with braai facilities), which overlooks Jacobsbaai towards the sea. A separate, outside staircase leads up to this patio and loft.

The popular Weskusplek, a restaurant owned by the famous Afrikaans singer, Steve Hofmeyr, is situated only 800 metres from the house. Here delicious and affordable traditional meals, and the hospitality so characteristic of the West Coast, can be enjoyed.

Jacobsbaai has always been known for its abundance of crayfish and it is a popular fishing spot. The bay is also ideal for sea kayaking. The protected bays provide an ideal paddling and exploring area for youngsters and young at heart, while the sandy Atlantic Ocean beach allows uncrowded sunbathing. The brave, tipsy or hot can dip in the refreshing ocean.

The towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Darling, the hometown of the famous Evita Bezuidenhout are nearby and Veldrift on the Berg River is ideal for bird watchers. Enjoy some wine tasting at the excellent wine estates in the area or visit the West Coast Fossil Park near Hopefield or the West Coast National Park, which is particularly beautiful in spring (late August to end September) with a kaleidoscope of colourful spring flowers.

Come on, act on that whim and experience the West Coast with this beautiful house as your base. We guarantee that you will already be planning your next visit before you leave.

Please note that, in order to meet the needs of future guests, no smoking is permitted inside the house, and no pets are allowed.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
