First visited in 2008, and now would only ever stay there when visiting SA. Each visit has been superb. Arthur and Ursula are the finest hosts and we are always assured of a wonderful stay. The best homemade food and hospitality anyone could wish for. A piece of paradise on the South coast. Love it there!

Arthur and Ursula are genuine people lovers and made our stay so worth while. Their sincerity and professionalism will make this a "come back" to destination. The service is professional and intimate without being intrusive. External restaurant and alternative hotel accommodation can be arranged through Arthur. We loved it and will certainly be back.

We are repeat guests! We first stayed at Ocean Grove in 2010 and were blown away by the seriously fabulous service, amazing accommodation and the hospitality extended by Arthur, Ursula and Roxy (and later Bonny) - we were as heartbroken as Arthur and Ursula when Roxy passed away in early 2013. Since then we have stayed at this awesome place...

We recently, in May/June this year made our way down the South Coast to Munster, not sure what to expect as we haven't been down this part of the world in many, many years. Husband I were reminiscing about our younger years and what we remembered. It was late and we were awfully tired when we arrived at Ocean Grove...

Arthur & Ursula were just fantastic. We could not have felt more at home and they really went the extra mile. The sea views were fantastic and we woke up each morning looking out over the sea. A great place to stay if you're looking for something in the area between Margate and Port Edward.

Arthur and Ursula and their two labradors will welcome you upon arrival. The house is a gem with a huge pool overlooking the ocean surrounded by extensive and spacious lush gardens. The entire Port Edward area is a horticultural microclimate where everything is green and verdant. We wished that we could have stayed for more than one night. Breakfast near...

Ocean Grove was our first B&B experience and we won't go back! The guest house is well positioned with a huge garden, beautiful sea views and the most incredible pool. Ursula and Arthur were exceptionally attentative, offering beach chairs, cooler bags and every extra you can think of. They even went as far as to locate a Chiropractor for me....

My family and I have stayed at numerous guest houses and hotels over the years both here and overseas and this was definitely among the best. We enjoyed a memorable three night stay (could have stayed three weeks!) Lovely comfy room with a patio overlooking the swimming pool and the sea beyond. Delicious breakfasts (loved Ursula’s version of Eggs Benedict)...

My husband and I are a young couple, of 28 and been married 5 years. This is our first time we got to get to go on holiday to the sea by ourselves. IT was like our honeymoon, and we chose Ocean Grove because we wanted to be close to the beach and required special catering needs as we are...

We are from the U.K, and we first visited this lovely guest house 3 years ago, and have been going back ever since. Arthur and Ursula are excellent hosts. We arrived as guests, and left as friends. The rooms are very comfortable and beautiful. After having a lavish breakfast, a full day can be spent just wandering around the lovely...
