We stayed for 2 nights in The Captain's Cabin at Ocean Watch Guest house. The guest house was recommended to us by my parents who had stayed before and been treated like royalty and Glenn and Judy welcomed us so warmly and treated us like old friends. So beautifully decorated, our room was elegant, spacious and chic with a great...

We had 3 nights with Glen and Judy and they really were the perfect hosts. They were very helpful, telling us where to go and what to see and finding us restaurants in the evening. The breakfasts were excellent and all the staff very friendly. We would highly recommend it.

The location is perfect, a 10 minutes walk to the gorgeous beach...

We were disappointed with our stay at this guest house. From their website the place looked lovely, and although it was more expensive than we would have liked to have paid, we decided to book it as it looked so nice. When we arrived Glen and Judy were very friendly and welcoming and we had lovely views from our window....

A well designed spacious house the rooms on the upper floor are especially good with a terrace on which to enjoy the view, breeze, sun and the odd bottle of good South African wine. A very...

We've already recommended Ocean Watch to friends. Vibrant hosts, perfect breakfasts and especially the view from the balcony and small pool made this the best guesthouse experience on our journey along the garden route.
