We stayed in Jah Shaka Surf Villa for one week and it was just great! Thanks for the layed back atmosphere and the great food made by Marina! Special thanks to Silvio for showing us great nightlife in Lagos und everything else!
Everything was absolutely clean. The perfect place to go surfing or just chilling out!

Marina and Nathan you are Jah Shaka!!!!!! Without you guys there it would simply be a shell of what it is. You were both incredibly helpful, the standard of cleanliness was beyond my own mothers! Don't tell her I said that. Your cooking was something else, how you cook to such high standards for so many people and so cheap I can not comprehend.

To the boss:
Please look after these two because I'll be checking whether they are still working at Jah Shaka before I book again.

Marina and Nathan:
I just want to go to whatever place your working. You could probably take a garden shed and turn it in to a place I want to spend my time. You are both legends and i know I said I wouldn't say it again but thank you.

I stayed at Jah Shaka in final week of July 12 along with my teenage daughter (a surf beginner). As a none surfer myself I might have felt a bit isolated. Far from it. The atmosphere that is created by Marina, Nathan and Silvio in this immaculate villa ensures that everyone feels part of the group. They provide information and guidance to ensure that every guest is able to enjoy their holiday to the full. The food they provide is fantastic and often they will join the group for a night out in Praia De Luz or Lagos. The Villa itself is perfectly located within walking distance of idyllic PDL and a short drive to Lagos. The days spent surfing are always at the best beaches which you are taken to each day by very friendly surf instructors. My daughter is now hooked and we will definitely be visiting Jah Shaka again. Our holiday was made all the better as we shared the villa with some of the nicest people....and that includes two loons Tom H and Robert K (see below)

I would have to agree with Rob K even though I utterly dislike the man. I was fortunate enough to stay at Jah Shaka for the last week in July this year. Immediately we were greeted with a smile and a tour of the villa by Marina and Nathan even though we arrived late at night, and throughout the week my estimations of them both just went up and up and up. They worked their backsides off to make sure we had a good time, cooked outstanding food, and kept the villa to a standard of cleanliness that would have put Mr Muscle himself to shame in comparison. An awesome holiday location made better by the outstanding people who ran it.

It is very rare the one can book a proper last minuet holiday and for it to turn out to be totally amazing.
The accommodation is spotlessly clean.
The food is so good we ate in instead of going out.
The surfing was very good well instructed and never strict.
Due to the area and the sport that the villa is associated to, you meet many interesting and wonderful characters from all over the world.
Marina and Nathan are two individuals who truly care about their jobs. The standard that they hold them selves to shines throughout the whole experience of staying at Jah-Shaka.
To sum up; amazing place, fantastic people, extremely well run.

Stayed at Jah Shaka with friends during peak season in July/August last year. The staff were very easy going and friendly. The accommodation itself was fantastic with a great set up. Reasonably priced, and a lot of fun. The minibus into town during the evening was very convenient as well. Our experience in Lagos was unbelievable, and Jah Shaka was a big part of it. Fantastic times - thanks Maz and the fellas!

Room Tip: The ground floor main bed room with 10 person bunk beds is ideal for a large group of friends
