Jeffreys Bay which is well known for international surfing, started out as a fishing village. Joseph Jeffrey erected the first wood and iron warehouse near the Kabeljouws River in 1849. From there on Jeffreys Bay developed steadily, and in 1865 Mr George Pell, a trader, innkeeper and artisan, bought plot no 31 in Jeffreys Bay. He made a name for himself in the building trade. William Pell was born in 1870. He was destined to play a significant role in the future development of Jeffreys Bay.
Mr Pell’s existing residence, which now trades as Mr Pell’s House (accommodation@jbay) has been renovated in such a way that it showcases the history of the old building , but incorporates also a fresh Mediterranean ambience.
We can currently accommodate 29 people. Whether you are backpacking with friends, coming to enjoy Jeffreys Bay with your family, or just want to chill and surf, Mr Pell’s House is the place for you.
It is walking distance from the main beach, restaurants, pubs, central town and much more. Other activities in the area include: sand-boarding, hiking, horse riding on the beach, surfing and fishing.
