An excellent stay at an exceptional venue run by lovely people.
My Wife and were to stay at Jakitas in 2017 but could not due to logistical problems. We then booked for early 2018 and were so glad we did. From the time we arrived we were met and taken care of by the hosts KATRINA and DIMITRI in a friendly and more than helpful manner. The facility is tastefully furnished, very clean and VERY well run. Food and catering provided were of a high standard and all needs were taken care of. In conclusion we were very satisfied with our stay and will return in 2018/2019. WE WILL WITHOUT HESITATION RECOMMEND KATRINAS TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Thank you both for a brilliant stay.

Absolutely perfect!
Jakitas is just the perfect location for a relaxed stay near the beaches of Ballito. The accommodation is beautiful, tasteful and offers everything we wished for! A warm welcome, good food, close to attractions/activities and shops. I recommend Jakitas to everyone and will stay there again hopefully soon!
