Dianne and George run this fantastic guesthouse right on the beach. They were so welcoming, attentive and accommodating to all of my needs as a guest. The view of the ocean is unrivaled, the service impeccable, the lodging spotless, well decorated and comfortable, and the breakfasts are divine. Don't search any further for a place to stay along the Garden... More

I was received with a lovely friendly, warm welcome and shown around. The bedroom is tastefully decorated and the views are just incredible. The guesthouse itself with the guest lounge is so beautifully decorated and luxurious. Definitely the best place to stay for the discerning traveller!

Very comfortable and well appointed accommodation and you don't get much closer to the beach than this. We only stayed one night while in town for some business, glad that we did, no complaints at all. The room was comfortable and breakfast was excellent. The owners are very much in attendance and go out of their way to make their... More

This was our second stay and we were not disappointed. The guest house is stunning, set right on the beautiful beach at Wilderness. The house is spotless and well furnished. Dianne and George are very friendly and welcoming (as are the team who help them) and we really enjoyed chatting to them during our stay. The house is well located... More

Serious brownie points for me when I brought my new wife into this stunningly modern, fashionable, yet relaxed and homey guest house... We then met Dianne, who is so friendly and informed about the area, you kind of think of her as an old friend within the first 10 minutes.. Our original plan was to be up and out early... More

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
