One must like the design style with a lot of glass and a more cool atmosphere. It differs in a very modern way from traditional South African homes. The German - South African team who runs the lodge are very kind and professional. We love the wilderness beach, the house offers ideal access to it.

We arrived here a day early. From the first the service was impeccable and the surroundings beautiful. We had no complaints whatsoever and we're delighted with the position and service. We were upgraded to a honeymoon suite which made our ruby wedding trip all the more special. Go and experience this if you can.

The location of this guest house is stunning, right on the beach from where you can take long walks by the side of the ocean. The guesthouse however was not what we expected especially given the price we paid. It was clean and tidy, but lacking in warmth - the colors both in the rooms as well as the communal...

The elephant foot is a gift from one of our former neighbours, the inimitable Beatrix Bosch, one of the most fearless women we have ever had the pleasure to meet. A homage to her work as an influential South Africa artist and the role she played in shaping the face of The Dune, our guest lounge couldn't do without it....

The Ocean View's staff and management went out of their way to accommodate this guest's wishes so it is most regrettable that despite assurances to the contrary certain agreements weren't honoured. Nevertheless, we stand together in wishing her and her husband all the very best for their future together.

Luxurious home right on the beach in a peaceful community. A wonderful spot for couples looking for a romantic getaway. The modern home is private with very easy access to the beach. Choose a room with a private balcony for even more privacy. A great spot to stay along the Garden Route.
