Owner, and Marina Martinique developer, James Hinton came up with the concept of FunkyTown a few years ago. Having bought the property (the original venue of Potters Place) in Oosterland Street during 2006, Hinton has really enjoyed breathing new life into the old building.

“As you wander through Funky Town, you will be transported back in time, with decor reminiscent of bygone times, re-created in funky, functional spaces. Yet Funky Town is also equipped with every convenience for the modern day traveler” said Hinton.

Funky Town is for the ‘back packers’ of yesterday, who have fond memories of these establishments across the globe. The social aspect of cooking together, watching movies together and making new friends over a few drinks will remain the same, but each traveler will have their own, modern upmarket en-suite room.

Through this breed of new traveler the ‘Flashpackers’ concept came about. FunkyTown is now one of a handful of flashpacker properties in South Africa and is on the fore front of a growing worldwide trend.

Funky Town offers 8 beautifully equipped en suite rooms, with multi functional spaces to cater for every need: from accommodation and events, to conferences and small weddings The entire property is a wi-fi hot spot, perfect for the
modern traveler and the public areas are large and spacious.

FunkyTown would like to extend an invitation to all the JBay locals to pop in and have a look around.

“Join us for a ‘Funky Blu Medina’ cocktail or simply come in and have a look around” said James. “Our aim was to give JBay something to be proud of. By working together we can promote JBay as a tourist destination. It’s only through collective efforts that we will start to really grow and sustain our tourism industry.” he added.
