My husband and I had ridden bikes on the ferry and it was getting dark when we arrived. Fortunately we called ahead and Murray picked us up at the dock. They were very accommodating and went overboard to make our trip enjoyable. The bed was comfy and the view wonderful.

My husband and I visited the Oceanwood Country Inn for our one year anniversary. We had a nice stay at the Inn - the hosts were very friendly, our room was spacious and had a gorgeous ocean view, the Jacuzzi was a luxurious treat, and the Tapa Bar was wonderful (I would definitely recommend the fish tacos!). However, before staying... More

I stayed 5 nights at the Oceanwood Inn. The hotel is very quiet. If you get an ocean view room you will not be disappointed. The bed was very comfortable. John and Caroline are very helpful. Caroline is a wonderful baker. Make sure you check out the Japanese Gardens across the road. Beautiful.

We arrived early and were first met by an English man who was not very friendly but he gave us our rooms and throughout our stay he became more friendly all the time. Our room was incredible . It was huge with a king bed and a sunken sitting room with a fireplace and a jaccuzi tub. We had large... More

The whole place looks very shabby, tired and unloved, especially for the very high room rates. We had a half price 'deal' and we thought it expensive even at the reduced price! Our room was not made up after our first night and when I pointed this out was told "they never make the rooms up, also there is a... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, apparently all rooms have an ocean view. Our room was lovely, and very nicely updated. There is a Tapas bar and the snacks were very tasty. The breakfast is very simple but the fresh baking was really really delicious and fresh hot each morning. There is something funky with the water once it has... More

The Oceanwood Country Inn was the perfect get away for the weekend. From the moment we were greeted by John and saw our room we were impressed. They have a wonderful afternoon tapas menu from 3pm until 7pm, prepared by Carolynn, which we thought was the best, most creative food on the Island with very friendly service. The rooms are...

I've stayed at the Oceanwood a couple times over the past years, and was happy to see that it reopened for yet another season this year. Accommodation options on Mayne for this area of the island I prefer are very limited. Overall, I think the place needs some updating... the room we were in (Iris) was adequate in that it... More

Unfortunately, the Oceanwood did not quite meet my expections. If the price per night is deluxe and the Website promises luxury than this is what the place is measured on. For me the place was a pretty basic B&B with a fantastic view and a large room. They have undoubtedly a little jewel there directly by the water. But you... More

We just spent five nights at the Oceanwood Country Inn. This is an absolutely fantastic place to stay on picturesque and magical Mayne Island with its unique history and ecosystem. Jon and Carolyn are brilliant hosts and storytellers (both worked as media professionals specializing in travel). In the mornings, Jon serves up the fresh coffee and fruit, while Carolyn whips...
