Beautiful view, friendly staff (thank you ladies for the laundry), nice room with good bed and shower. The Ocean Watch Guest House is well situated on walking distance to the main road. Vanessa gives you all the advice you need for a good stay in Plett.

We had a wonderful room looking over the Bay. Great shower and comfortable bed. The furnishings are to a high standard highlighting the beach feel of the surrounding area. There are several sitting areas if you feel you want a quiet time to read, have some computer time, or enjoy some peace. There is comfortable outdoor seating with umbrellas for...

Noisy room, so small you can hardly turn around. Bathroom minuscule. Lovely friendly staff, but prepare to have 5 keys to gain entry into your room. Stay there only if you can get an upper room - with a great room and view.

Fair location, wonderful 'home like' atmosphere, but the size and location of the room in the house , made it impossible for is to spend a second night there. Hard to recommend the guest house, unfortunately, unless you get the upper room, which is large and has a fabulous view.

Thank you for this review and we are tending to concerns raised here. The guesthouse is in one of the most sought after areas, within walking distance to town and beaches. Unfortunately theft is always a concern and we are obligated to notify the clients. The privacy issue in one of the rooms is getting sorted out and the timer...

This is a lovely guest house, beautifully appointed bedrooms and communal spaces, staff are all lovely, breakfast excellent and views truly breath-taking. It is well positioned for local restaurants and I would stay there again if we are ever in Plett.

This is a great place to stay in Plettenberg Bay. The room was spacious and well appointed and the public areas are comfortable with a terrific view of the bay. It is in walking distance of all local facilities. I'll be back
