"Epic views of the most famous South African surf spots. An exclusive getaway with direct access to the boardwalk and beach. Come stay with us and some of the world’s top surfers!"

The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

There are several breaks in JBay, Supertubes being the most famous. We are right on the spot! Left of us (when looking at the ocean) is Point and Lower Point, to the right Boneyards. These are all a short walk away. JBay is known for winter swells, which means it’s usually cold, but we can get a few fun swells in the summer too! If you’re longboarding, this is an all-year-round surf spot.

The lodge

Guests from all over the world choose to stay at African Perfection, one of the original guesthouses on Supertubes, in Jeffreys Bay. This B&B house offers seven air-conditioned, en-suite rooms, and the penthouse suite on the top floor.

The first-floor suites all have phenomenal views of the ocean and from the ground-floor beachfront suites you have direct access to the boardwalk and beach. A hearty breakfast is included and rooms are serviced daily.

The African Perfection and other guesthouses on Supertubes, in Jeffrey’s Bay, consist of two B&B properties and three self-catering properties. Rated the number 1 B&B in Jeffrey’s Bay for 6 consecutive years by TripAdvisor. African Perfection is the epitome of beachfront living.

The two air-conditioned houses situated in Pepper street, home of the world-famous surf spot, Supertubes, have direct access to kilometers of pristine beach.

African Perfection 1, a classically styled B&B, offers eight en-suite rooms individually decorated with a distinct and celebrated African sentiment. The Penthouse is the pièce de résistance, a luxury two-bedroom, fully equipped apartment, with 180-degree breathtaking views.
