Property Description

Perched on a dune with a 270 degree view of the Indian Ocean, this sea-view Eden provides the perfect setting for any beach bum.

Wooden decks overlook the bay and provide wonderful, aloe-framed views and the perfect setting to soak up the sun, do some dolphin and whale watching or watch the full moon rising.

Every room- and brilliant camp site- has an uninterrupted view of the ocean. There are excellent surf spots on the doorstep and when the swell pulls in, you'll hear the crash of the ocean from your bed. There are also communal self catering facilities. As well as WIFI Internet.

Island Vibe has the right balance to build friendships and restore weary travellers. Spend a night in the bar and you'll soon see why it's called the Vibe. View House Rules

    Great location, staff and facilities. Only negative was that the 4 person dorms are tiny! The surf lessons are great and definitely a must-do.

    I really enjoyed the vibe in this place, the staff was really helpful and I enjoyed hanging out with them and few of the locals. Best braai I've ever had. Stephano is a great surfing instructor.

    We really enjoyed our stay with island vibe , the only grumble would be that we didn’t have a secure door on our hostel room , it was a sliding door that lead straight into the courtyard where people hung out so anybody could easily access the room without a key ! But great hostel !!

    Enjoyed my stay here. Met a lot of great people. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's noisy all night long, so bring earplugs...or join in. Staff were amazing, wifi was good, cleanliness was generally okay, showers were hot. Quite a few locals come to party here in the evenings and since doors are all sliding glass with no locks, security is...meh. There were lockers in our room, however. Overall, positive — I'd stay here again.

    amazing view! i loved it! BUT, the bedrooms left much to be desired. I stayed in a 4 bed with 3 friends, and its very small... the door is always open and there are no lockers. Also, there was only one power plug in the whole bedroom. They could improve the shower area adding shelfs, because there is no place to put your stuff.
