I had the pleasure of staying in Jabulani Guest House for only a single night on a business trip, but wished I had reason to stay longer! The hostess, Helena, was very welcoming and served up one of the best dinners I've had in South Africa. The guest house was comfortable--a real feel of home--tucked away in a quiet neighborhood...

We stayed a few nights in this very beatiful Guest House. The rooms are very nice and very clean. I would recomment it to any one staying in the Durbanville area. We felt at Home and Safe there. The breakfast was just amazing. A Perfect Place to stay if you wish to relax and in a very good located area.

Kind hearted host. Loving environment. The owner puts her heart and soul into the business. I've witnessed acts of kindness that are above and beyond that of the average guesthouse. I recommend Jabulani highly.

Helena is a warm, welcoming hostess who is obviously passionate about providing a relaxing and comfortable haven to the families and individuals who pass through her home. Our room was spotless and well-appointed, and the indigenous garden is beautiful. Although our children did not accompany us, Jabulani is obviously well equipped to cater to families with young children.

Spent a week-end in this guesthouse in 2001. The atmosphere was so homely and the place was pristine. Difficult to wake up in the morning because the place was soooooo quiet and the bed sooooo soft. Meals? Well, I mean, I ate. I sure did. If I happen to be in Durbanville anytime in the future, I know where I'm... More

Jabulani is a beautiful and peaceful oasis, the rooms are elegant and comfortable, the garden is gorgeous and the food is outstanding, carefully prepared using local ingredients. The hospitality of our hostess, Helena made this a very special place to stay. Jabulani provides the perfect balance between a warm and inclusive welcome and space and independence to enjoy your stay.... More

I am a frequent business traveller in RSA from so long - I visited many B&Bs in this amazing country , where landscape is so special and people warmest in the world . Jabulani B&B is really something even more special . It has become my reference in CT and I cannot stay in an another different place.

Jabulani Guest House was a perfect home for us while we were staying in Durbanville with our little daughter. It is a wonderful place particularly when you are travelling with children. Highly recommended.

We had a great time. Splendid hospitality, a perfect mixture between feeling at home and having your own privacy. The kitchen is perfect, Helena is a great host and terrific chef. Rooms were spacious and clean. A nice garden with a lot of flowers, do not forget to watch the turtels.
