The views from the room were stunning. - The room was very comfortable. - It was a quiet area with no noise disturbance. - Good recommendation for local restaurants. - The credit card facilities were out of order and therefore we were expected to pay the full amount for the room in cash. The way that this was communicated was...

Keep coming back to J-Bay for some time already which is a typical surfers's paradise. Very cool crowd and laid back. If you dont want or cannot surf because weather is not good then maybe go to the local gym to deserve your reward for the really comprehensive breakfast at the Ocean Bay to start the day. Kirsten and her...

This was a classic case of over promising and under delivering. Their brochure is an example. Whilst our room was modern and clean we were disappointed with the managers. Our room did not have any soap or coffee or milk, fortunately we had our own soap but such an oversight is evidence of a lack of attention to detail. Unlike...

My family and I spent 5 days at The Ocean Bay while watching the ASP surf tour - it was a home from home but with all the added extra's you'd expect when you're on holiday - from the beautiful rooms, sparkling pool, amazing views, quite garden to the fresh flower on each bed. We were warmly welcomed by Kirsten...

A lovely clean room with big windows. Very spacious. The room over looks a beautiful pool area and garden with seaviews in the distance. Not your usual "beach" decor however. The rooms are furnished in an african/ lodge style. The bathroom is small in comparison to the room with only a shower and no bath. Small complementary toiletries were not...

The Ocean Bay is a beautiful located B&B with a great view and very helpful and kind hosts (Kirsten, Sven and Caro). Our room had a beautiful ocean and garden view, only one jump away from the pool!

We enjoyed three nice days at Kirstens and Svens Guesthouse. We liked the fresh bread and the daily baked cakes in the morning with jam and cheese, the different kinds of eggs and the good coffee. Kirsten was very helpful with the reservations of restaurants, our car-problem and our horsetrip. We had a nice room with garden view and hibiscus....

“Having only seen our room, I believe the African Suite, which was gorgeous, I will leave no preference tip. All rooms have sun on their balcony and overlook the garden and swimming pool. I believe, their are keepsakes in all rooms of Sven and Kirsten's travels that blend in with their theme, so all should be interesting!”
