Island Vibe is Good for its value situated in a good place to spot and easily access areas around town and the stuff is friendly. It was convenient for us to reach our starting point as we were there for the marathon and to find parking close to the finish venue.

This accommodation was in the perfect location for what we required and we booked the whole 3-bedroomed house out for ourselves and our friends. It was clean and comfortable. Was great to have the DSTV sport available. We will be back again!

Stay in the main building. The annex is right next to a drug den. Staff very friendly and the place is clean and quiet. Parking can be a bit of an issue on busy weekends. A few hundred metres from the mall and three blocks from the waterfront. Park and walk.

Dear Wallace, Thanks for your review. I see you have made mention of the neighbouring house. That next door house has been abandoned for a while now. The police were given a court order to clear out the property and get it ready for demolition. There are plans in place to rebuild there. We do hope to see you again.... More

Stayed here one night, spend the evening at the fire place. Chilled vibe, extremely friendly staff, helped us with the planning of our trip for the next days. Bathroom was clean, would recommend this place to all backpackers!

I was pleasantly surprised by how welcome i was made to feel at Island Vibe. The staff went out of the way to help with organising activities around the area and were always available. The property itself is well laid out and convenient whether you want to party or just relax. My only regret is that I could not stay... More

I stayed only one night but had such a good time! The place is greatly located, spacious and homy at the same time. Staff is very cool and makes sure that you have a good time. The highlight was to go out with them to a local bar. They surely take good care of you :-)
