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

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.

The Ocean View is a design showhouse, converted into a luxury guest house, and its location right on the beach is to die for. The villa stands out in the Wilderness dunes, with one of the most beautiful beaches of the Garden Route right on its doorstep. The interior is chic and cool, all materials and fittings used are European... More

We stayed three nights. two lots of steps led down to the lounge area and our room. The property is right on the sea front and as such there is a lot of wave crashing noise, double glazing would help. The temperature was quite warm but we were unable to have the patio doors open because of the sea noise.There... More

Overall a rather expensive. We also found... More

Lovely place, clearly lots of attention to detail on the fittings. Very friendly and helpful service, and great breakfast! Interesting place as you get the experience of living in a glass box which obviously has its downsides hence my 4 rating- felt a bit stark in some ways....
