4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

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....

On the plus side the property looks the part. Very modern and uncluttered. The negatives: Our room was downstairs, we had to drag our big suitcases down two steep flights of stairs (no offer of help) The room was very dark but we found this compensated by the magnificent sound of the Ocean. The service was where the property let... More

we had a very pleasnt stay here, but the minimalist furnishings made it very noisey. The room heating controls also had a mind of their own! Room facilities excellant, Shower was great. View of the ocean Perfect, Gardens very nice, Breakfast good. Wifi didn't work.

We had such an amazing break there for a couple of days in early September. We were blessed with beautiful weather and long walks on the beach which we nearly had all to ourselves in the low season. There are lots to do in the area and the manager was very helpful in recommending things to do and places to... More

We had a gorgeous, modern room right on the ocean with incredible views. The views are amazing from every room, including the breakfast room. Breakfast was excellent, with cold and hot dishes made fresh for you. Our room's heater didn't work (radiant floor heat), so we were given a space heater, which worked fine. Our hot water didn't work very... More

Excellent value for great accomodation,helpful host, beautiful building and superb breakfast! Staff were professional and polite. Recommend visiting Beatrix Bosch, a renowned artist a few doors down at #57.

This is a stunning property which might just take your breath away inside and out. We loved it. You can reach the beach from your room via a stair case straight onto the beautiful and wide sandy bay. The main highlight of this guest house is without a doubt the views and the huge glass walls in all areas of... More

Set in an ideal location, Ocean View is just that. Every room looks out over the water and the only sound you'll hear is the roar of the ocean. I received great service and enjoyed the heated floors. Windows everywhere to maximize the view. No major complaints.

We loved our stay at this stunning, modern guesthouse with fabulous views on the beach from every corner in the house. The interior decoration is wonderful, great rooms with direct access to balconies or the swimming pool. Excellent breakfast and very friendly host and staff. Just forget about Wilderness itself (pretty dull) and enjoy the beachfront and Ocean View.

Ocean View is a fabulous contemporary guest house located right on the beach with breathtaking views of the sea. First impressions are of a brilliantly designed, spacious, light building with unusual artwork and luxurious furnishings.  I'll  never forget walking into the building - the view of sea sound of the waves were magical. The beach was fairly deserted and remained... More
