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

The Ocean Bay is a beautiful located B&B with a great view and very helpful and kind hosts (Kirsten, Sven and Caro). Our room had a beautiful ocean and garden view, only one jump away from the pool! We got great recommendations for our dinner and for further exploration of the area. The second night our host Kirsten organized a... More

We enjoyed three nice days at Kirstens and Svens Guesthouse. We liked the fresh bread and the daily baked cakes in the morning with jam and cheese, the different kinds of eggs and the good coffee. Kirsten was very helpful with the reservations of restaurants, our car-problem and our horsetrip. We had a nice room with garden view and hibiscus.... More

Having driven the Garden Route and stayed at quite a few Guesthouses, this was the best.. A great location, just on the edge of the main town, with a lovely pool and garden area with sea views in the distance. Very friendly and helpful hosts, with good tips on places to visit. With good size, clean rooms with access to... More

This place was so welcoming that we spent many hours lingering at the stunning pool, enjoying the view over the bay and soaking up the sun in the lush garden. Breakfast is very lekker and Kirsten & Sven went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. Our room lead out to the garden and was well equipped. We are... More

The Ocean Bay in Jeffreys Bay is a very modern designed and luxurious lodge with spacious rooms and a very good service. The owner Kirsten was very friendly and helped us with tips for hikes, activities and dinner (the Kitchen Window restaurant right at the beach was fantastic!). We had the Africa Suite at the Ocean Bay which came with... More

The guesthouse is owned by a German couple, therefore I wasn't surprised to find a very clean, nicely designed and modern room. I was surprised though how pretty and spacious the room was for that price. Great bathroom, kitchenette and the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. I mean it! The amazing breakfast was served on the terrace.... More
