Stayed here for 2 weeks on business in November 2014. Kirsten and Sven were both amazing. They both made me very welcome. My apartment was stunning. The gardens, pool and views were fantastic. Kirsten is such a warm and king hearted lady. She made me breakfast each morning before going to work at 06.00hrs. You wouldn't get that in the... More

We arrived earlier than normal check in time, but we were welcomed by the staff with a cool drink and our room was ready in no time. In the meantime our kids could play at the pool and Kirsten took her time to explain us everything about the area, the best restaurants in town, etc. She knows a lot about... More

The Ocean Bay B&B is a must for any traveller looking for a home away from home. The garden is stunning and tranquil. The views are breathtaking and the breakfasts scrumptious. Kirsten is a wonderful, warm and friendly host. I would definitely recommend The Ocean Bay, it was most certainly relaxing .

And last but not least to be mentionend: the host. Kirsten and her family are just fabulous. We got great recommendations... More

The views from the room were stunning. - The room was very comfortable. - It was a quiet area with no noise disturbance. - Good recommendation for local restaurants. - The credit card facilities were out of order and therefore we were expected to pay the full amount for the room in cash. The way that this was communicated was... More

Keep coming back to J-Bay for some time already which is a typical surfers's paradise. Very cool crowd and laid back. If you dont want or cannot surf because weather is not good then maybe go to the local gym to deserve your reward for the really comprehensive breakfast at the Ocean Bay to start the day. Kirsten and her... More

This was a classic case of over promising and under delivering. Their brochure is an example. Whilst our room was modern and clean we were disappointed with the managers. Our room did not have any soap or coffee or milk, fortunately we had our own soap but such an oversight is evidence of a lack of attention to detail. Unlike... More

My family and I spent 5 days at The Ocean Bay while watching the ASP surf tour - it was a home from home but with all the added extra's you'd expect when you're on holiday - from the beautiful rooms, sparkling pool, amazing views, quite garden to the fresh flower on each bed. We were warmly welcomed by Kirsten... More

A lovely clean room with big windows. Very spacious. The room over looks a beautiful pool area and garden with seaviews in the distance. Not your usual "beach" decor however. The rooms are furnished in an african/ lodge style. The bathroom is small in comparison to the room with only a shower and no bath. Small complementary toiletries were not... More

It is a lovely bed & bed breakfast, big rooms with a lovely view. They had biggest pool of all the B&B's we have staid at. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. In compare of all the other places we have been, we have to amend that the little amenities such as shower gel, shampoo, etc. are missing. Therefore... More
