After much research seeking a B&B in the Umhlanga area, we found Ocean View Bed and Breakfast on Tripadvisor. Perfectly situated on the Umhlanga Ridge, and close to the Gateway shopping centre, Ocean View met all our expectations during our two day stay. On arrival, we were met by Helen, who made us feel at home immediately, completing the paperwork... More

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to do a review on our accommodation. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and share our spot overlooking the sea. Sadly the weather was not perfect - who did the rain dance? However it was warm, dry and cosy inside!... More

After staying in the bush we looked for a place close to the airport for easy continuing our holiday. We found Ocean View and were happy with a very comfortable room. We met really nice people, enjoyed a delicious breaktfast and a good view to the ocean. It is a beautiful place to stay and relax!

Thank you Adelheid and Frank for your quick visit. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us between your trips to the game reserves around the country. Hopefully you were able to enjoy some sunshine before heading back to germany and the colder months ahead. We are glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Kind regards Helen More

I booked at Oceanview Bed & Breakfast for a period of six days. Upon arrival, the level of service and greeting was excellent and I was made to feel very welcome by Helen. She sat me down and explained all that could be done whilst on holiday in and around the area. She even provided me with brochures and maps... More

My wife and 2 teenagers recently stayed in the 1st Floor apartment. Well it was enormous - a lounge, separate bedroom, bath and shower en suite and its own kitchenette. The views from the balcony magnificent. We watched the full moon rise each evening. It was spotlessly clean, the breakfasts sumptuous.We had our own entrance and our hire car was... More

Don't bother searching trip advisor for a B&B in umhlanga, just book at Ocean View. Excellent value (very spacious for a B&B as 2 of their units have a kitchenette & lounge area), great sea views away from the hustle & bustle of the village. Lovely patio areas to relax & have a drink whilst looking out to sea, &... More

One of the best, if not the best, guesthouse we have stayed in. Lovely sea-views. Spotless. Secure parking on site The double rooms have a separate lounge/kitchenette. Helen's breakfast is to die for. Healthy and a full English Breakfast Service out of this world.

This B&B is located in a very nice residential area. We were surprised by the size of our room: it was more like a full size apartment! Very modern and comfortable, and spotless. In the morning sun, we enjoyed a great breakfast on our patio, which gave out to the garden. Superb start of the day. Don't hesitate, just go... More

If you are thinking about booking at Ocean view, just do it! No need to waste time reading reviews, this B&B is fantastic value for money. The accomodation is the most spacious b&b we have ever stayed in (& we have stayed in many). We would recommend either the downstairs or upstairs rooms. They are ideal for families or just... More

I would like to recommend this guest lodge. It is one of the best ocean view from Umhlanga Rocks and Helen is one of the best host and guide. Good breakfast, very clean rooms and baths and a lot of monkeys.
