I have enjoyed my stay the the Ocean Watch guesthouse a lot. The nicely decorated house with a fantastic view over the bay is worth visiting the B&B. The owner, Judy, gave me a lot for hints what places to visit in Plettenberg bay. I really recommend this guesthouse.

Travelled as a family with two children, aged 5 1/2 and almost 4. Choose the Caribbean room (family, two rooms and bathroom). The pool at the guest house is small and is not a reason for staying here. Nice to have towels to go to the beach. Friendly staff! Basic, but ok breakast. Could be better cleaning of the room,...

We arrived around 6;30 pm for an overnight stay and following the map supplied found Ocean Watch. As we stopped a car drew up and a lady (it turned out to be the owner, Judy) drew alongside and told us that this entrance was locked off and we needed to go around the corner to get in. Once in Judy... More

This place is the best we've stayed in during our two week travel in SA. It is spotless, extremely well decorated, spacious, and and has recently refurbished bathrooms that are wonderful. Judy, the hostess, is charming and accommodating. The staff is also friendly and helpful. The ocean and distant mountain views are beautiful. The house is large, well laid out... More

A lovely B & B within easy walking distance to restaurants, etc. Fantastic location with views out over the ocean - just a beautiful spot. Very quiet area. Extremely comfortable with added extra touches in the room like tea/coffee and port.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Ocean Watch. Moica and Jessica and Glen took wonderful care of us, the bed was SO comfortable, and the views over the Bay were perfect. Will recommend to anyone coming to The Garden Route!

My stay at the Ocean Watch Guest House was initially booked as pre-Otter Trail accommodation for 4 of us friends. However, due to a change in my circumstances, I was no longer able to do the Otter Trail and so I extended by an additional night. I wish I had stayed longer. We arrived mid-afternoon and the second I walked... More

I fell in love with Plett and I'm sure this had a lot to do with Judy and Glenn's beautiful guest house and warm hospitality. Our tasteful room had a stunning view of the ocean. We enjoyed an entire day lying next to the pool with that gorgeous view. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff were fun and friendly.... More

Just back from completing the Otter trail and spent a night at start and at end at Glenn and Judy's wonderful guest house. I can only confirm all the wonderful comments by others and note that we too had a warm welcome, lovely facilities, a copious breakfast and fabulous views. We traveled as a family of four and stayed in... More
