Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 23, 2012

Jeffreys Bay is a perfect stay at the Garden Route with nice beaches, shops, it's excellent for surfing and relaxing. If you consider to stop here, a stay at "The Ocean Bay" is an absolute must. The rooms are spacious, clean and light and offer you an excellent view to the beautiful garden and bay. I couldn't think of a greater hospitality than the one we experienced there.

We were spending a month in South Africa in February 2012 and we spent 5 days in Jeffrey's Bay in the Ocean Bay guesthouse... What a beautiful place!! We had a lovely room, very spacious, modern and clean; so we really felt at home here. The pool and the garden are so relaxed and Kirsten can give you all the advises you need for great places for coffee and food and activities to do in the area. We really want to come back some day..!!

We stayed at the Ocean Bay the last week of our honeymoon (Jan 2012) after having travelled through SA for 10 days. It was absolutely incredible. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Sven and Kirsten and felt immediately what a unique atmosphere The Ocean Bay has. We stayed in the Africa suite which is furnished in a very stylish way and includes all necessary kitchen equipment and appliances. On top of that the Ocean Bay has a lovely garden with a great swimming pool (overlooking the Ocean) and a dining area for breakfast and where our fantastic hosts organised a 'braai' for all the guests. Jeffrey's Bay itself is ideally located to visit Addo Elephant Park, Scotia Game Reserve, Plettenberg Bay, Knysna and route 62. Reservations for excursions and trips were kindly provided by Kirsten and Sven at no extra charge. The Guesthouse is located in the safest area of Jeffrey's Bay and close to restaurants, beaches, shops, etc (although it's recommendable to have a car). Overall we had the most amazing time at The Ocean Bay and would definitely recommend it to whoever is going to SA! Kirsten, Sven, Carolin, (Foxy and Tommy) thank you once again for the amazing time and we'll definitely be back!!

We really enjoyed our 2 day stay in Jeffreys Bay with Kirsten, Sven and Carolin in October 2011. The B&B has a great view of the bay, an awesome pool and lovingly decorated rooms with great beds. Since we arrived on a Sunday, most of the restaurants were closed, so Kirsten and Sven organised a nice barbecue with us and the other guests. We had a great night with delicious food and really nice talks. The breakfast in the morning was served in the garden and included everything you need for a great start into the day. During our stay we did a quad tour with Kirsten, Sven and Carolin and had a lot of fun. Unfortunately, we had a breakdown with our car but we had amazing support from Sven and Kirsten. They gave us helpful advise and spent time with us waiting for the new car. Thanks again! We will definitely come back as we came as guests and left as friends.

We absolutely LOVED this guest house - it is gorgeous and the hosts are marvellous. Our whole family of three generations stayed here, spread across different rooms of our own - each with its own design. Do yourself a favour and skip the chain hotels for a bit of personalised style and friendly service at the Ocean Bay Guesthouse - it is an oasis of calm and tranquility in South Africa.

We had a perfect stay in the ocean bay guest house: Large and clean pool (the best we`ve seen during our whole trip through South Africa), beautiful rooms with very comfortable bed and nice view, delicious breakfast. The house is good situated in a quiet area, but by car reach every spot in jeffrey`s bay wihin minutes.
The staff was very helpful and always had good advices of where to have dinner or what activites there are to do. We will definitely come back on our next trip through South Africa.
