About Barry Thomas

Jambo Guest House is a charming Victorian style home with a luscious tropical garden and a sunny courtyard. Situated in Green Point, the property offers easy access to the Victoria & Albert Waterfront.

The individually decorated rooms with wood furnishings include TVs, mini fridges and air conditioning, along with en-suite bathrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi. Two of the five rooms feature a fireplace.

Features at Jambo Guest House include a lounge area, a solar heated Jacuzzi and a games room. The hosts can help guests to arrange car hire and tours.

A continental breakfast including cereals, cheeses and yoghurts, as well as freshly baked bread and seasonal fruit, is served in the breakfast room or outside in the courtyard. Guests can also enjoy a drink from the private bar.

Jambo Guest House is not far from the Clifton and Camps Bay beaches: it takes a short 20-minute bus ride to reach the former, while the latter is an additional seven minutes’ ride away.

Great breakfast in the morning

Guests enjoyed the complimentary breakfast served each morning, reporting that the food was lovely and fresh and that there was a good choice of items available.

Interesting and quirky ambiance

Small bathrooms

While finding the bathrooms at this property modern and spotlessly clean, guests have been a little disappointing with their size. It appears that although the rooms themselves are spacious, the bathrooms can feel a little cramped.
