Luxurious home right on the beach in a peaceful community. A wonderful spot for couples looking for a romantic getaway. The modern home is private with very easy access to the beach. Choose a room with a private balcony for even more privacy. A great spot to stay along the Garden Route.

Every year my wife and i make a trip along the garden route to stay at a different guest house along the beach and we came across the Ocean View about a year ago and had to make a booking.The website does not do this place justice. It is amazing online but when you have the chance to stay you... More

This guest house is amazing- you are so close to the sea and have direct access to a stunning beach. The breakfasts were amazing with freshly baked muffins in a different flavour each day. They also have a wine fridge where you can help yourself to a glass or a bottle of red or white wine for very low prices... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in early April. The guesthouse is a modern, beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean luxury beach house. With its funky interior, open plan design, abundance of natural light together with ocean views to die for, it is the type of place you dream of buying and retiring to if you win the... More

We found this hotel on a google search and planned my whole trip around it - we were not disappointed. Every picture is a true reflection. We stayed in room 3, upper level which had a great view of the beach and sea. The room is lovely, just needs perhaps your own mini fridge although we loved the one in... More

The Ocean View Guest House is located at the perfect spot, directly on Wilderness' Beach with an stunning view and amazing sound of the sea. The house is very modern and clean. Breakfast is nice and fresh. Would definitely recommend to go there.

As you might have guessed from the name, the Ocean View Guest House has fabulous and expansive views across the Indian Ocean. With what seems like acres of glass there are sweeping vistas from every room. It's a beautiful building, furnished in a very contemporary, stylish and individual way. Each guest room fronts the ocean and has a balcony or... More

This guest house has a wonderful location in Wilderness. The king sized bed was comfortable, the wi-fi worked well. It would have been great to have a mini fridge in the room as well as a Nespresso or something similar.
