A modern style guesthouse or more like a small hotel. The style is modern with open space panorama glass windows overlooking the ocean. High standard, good service very nice breakfast and parking is just outside. The staff can also arrange dinner reservations in the village, with pick up and all. Just ask. This place is a bit from the center... More

Tack, Michael. We're now baking our own health bread, croissants and mini bread buns for breakfast. And Lynda, the lady who makes our homemade jams, has found a recipe for Moskonfyt that dates back to the 1600s when the old Cape began producing grapes. More

We have just enjoyed our second visit to Ocean View. The management team of Diane and George together with the girls who cooked breakfast and looked after the room were all fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and we weren't even allowed to pick up a suitcase both upon our arrival and departure. The location is outstanding and it was... More

This is a real luxury guesthouse- ist worth its name! Located at the beach, overlooking the sea, having stylish bathrooms with glaswalls in the room..Great! It would have been worth to stay longer than just one night- or to come back! Great breakfast either...

We have recently visited this wonderful guest house, it is a very modern building with a contemporary feel and decorated to a very high standard, the views from a room no 2 directly over looking the fabulous beach were amazing. Staff could not of been more helpful. Will definitely be back

We stayed at the Ocean View for 3 nights and had an amazing time at this modern, luxurious and well maintained Guest house. Dianne and George are great hosts and were very helpful in giving tips on what to do and where to go. The locations of the house is stunning. It's nestled into the dune of the beach with... More

I'm writing this review as I think some past reviewers are wholly unfair. My husband and I stayed in Dec 13 (so s year ago but there is no option to go back that far). When we arrived we were greeted by a gentleman (the owner) who offered us a bottle of wine free as it was out honeymoon. We... More

One must like the design style with a lot of glass and a more cool atmosphere. It differs in a very modern way from traditional South African homes. The German - South African team who runs the lodge are very kind and professional. We love the wilderness beach, the house offers ideal access to it.

We stayed here with our 2 kids. The managers were so incredibly accommodating helpful and friendly. Made us feel very welcome, explained and gave us recommendations. We received a hand written letter on our arrival which is a unique and special touch. The property is stunning, beautiful design, very modern. It's very well located for touring the garden route.
