Our minimum length of stay is 14 nights. However we strongly encourage longer bookings, as we believe your JBay experience will be better this way. Our monthly rates are quite significantly discounted to encourage this.
There are beaches, supermarkets and coffee shops all within a 5-minute walk from the house. Should you wish to go further (for example, to the coworking space), bicycles are available at the house at no extra charge.
Yes! The Coliving House provides the unlimited high-speed fibre internet (up to 400Mbps) with UniFi networking throughout the house. WiFi is solid.
Yes - we have our own independent backup power supply! The WiFi, plug points and all essentials will stay powered throughout the scheduled power outages.
We are able to arrange an airport pickup from Port Elizabeth Airport via a trusted taxi company (approx 50 mins drive). If you wish to use this, please communicate in advance upon booking your room at the coliving house. There is an additional cost of R750 / ~EUR38 (one way) for this service. This should be paid directly to the driver or cab company.
The Coliving House is 3km from the Coworking space, down one straight and flat road. On this road, it is about a 10 minute cycle (bicycles are included in your stay) or a 5-minute drive / ~EUR3 taxi. Your accommodation charge automatically includes free access to the coworking space.
Yes - some of the best spots for surfing are all within a 5 minute walk from the house! However, if you are a beginner, the more beginner-friendly waves are right in front of The Green Room Coworking space - about a 10 minute cycle from the coliving house.
One of the main things that make JBay, JBAY… is that we have incredible waves! The town is, indeed, very much centered around the ocean and the surf culture. That being said, if you are not so much into surfing, there are still plenty of stunning adventures and beautiful stretches of nature that you can explore in and around the town.
You can expect a quiet, peaceful and inspiring environment where you will be able to focus on your work, adventure with friends and relax!
We are definitely not a town that you can expect a lot of 'vibrant nightlife' in. There is not much of a 'partying' scene if this is something that you are looking for.
Everyone caters for themselves at the house - we have a large and well-equipped kitchen. That said, you can expect a communal meal provided by the house at least once a week. There are also a range of good and affordable restaurant options in JBay that we can recommend.
The house is designed with various spacious areas and private nooks where you can set up get some work done. Access to the Green Room JBay Coworking space is also included in your room rate! At the cowork you’ll find a range of desk space solutions, with different levels of privacy. You can also make some friends within the large established community of travelers and locals alike!
There is a house cat! Moji (who you will likely see in many gallery photos ) actually lives next door, but spends most of his time lounging in the sun at the coliving house.
Yes! We do have room options that cater for 1 x king, or 2 x singles that can be separated upon request. These are specified in the room options above.
Yes! There is a washing machine in the house available for all residents. This is included in the cost of your stay. We even provide the bio-friendly laundry detergent. If you prefer, we can also recommend nearby laundries within a short walk. The house will take care of a weekly change of linen.
