Spent one night together with 2 friends in single rooms. Panorama view from the shared balcony, great breakfast, amazing rooms, great and friendly host that meets every expectation. Thank you very much for having us, if we return to Plettenberg bay we definitely know where to stay.

We booked in for the first two nights of our honeymoon at this little piece of heaven. It was an amazing experience. The staff were extremely friendly, and very eager to help with booking restaurants and anything else we needed. The room (we stayed in the Captain) was amazing, those black out curtains of theirs had my new hubby very... More

This is a long overdue review for a simply wonderful guest house. I've stayed at Ocean Watch five or six times and love the property, Judy's gracious and helpful assistance, and the ladies Monica and Jessica who prepare a splendid breakfast and keep the place spick and span. Judy goes out of her way to help with dining recommendations, reservations,... More

We have been staying at An Ocean Watch regularly since 1997. It's beautifully decorated, spacious accommodation on two floors. The upstairs rooms and outside balcony have a slightly better view. The downstairs rooms have the benefit of being next to the pool. The owner Judy is a so lovely, very friendly and helpful with local restaurant recommendations and places to... More

Ocean Watch is a gem, the house is beautiful, decor is very high spec and nothing is too much trouble for Judy the proprietor and her housekeeper Monica, they looked after us so well. We had the Caribbean room which was huge with a very spacious bathroom and large shared living area and enormous balcony with Ocean views. It was... More

One more staff member would help.Checking out was not handled good as we could not pay by credit card because only the owner knows how and she was not there that morning.Location and accommodation was very good.

We had the Shell Room and it is in our opinion the nicest room in this building with oceans view. The room itself is not really big, but this didn't bother. We got in touch with the owner just after one day. But she is really friendly and helpful. Because of our cheetah Tour we weren't able to attend at... More

What an incredible guest house. Judy (hostess) was a real treasure who was more than happy to help with anything. We immediately got awe struck by the beautiful view on the way to our room. The room was luxury to say the least. Every bit of care and attention had gone into furnishing the room to a wonderfully high standard.... More
