The Ocean Bay in Jeffreys Bay is a very modern designed and luxurious lodge with spacious rooms and a very good service. The owner Kirsten was very friendly and helped us with tips for hikes, activities and dinner (the Kitchen Window restaurant right at the beach was fantastic!). We had the Africa Suite at the Ocean Bay which came with...

The guesthouse is owned by a German couple, therefore I wasn't surprised to find a very clean, nicely designed and modern room. I was surprised though how pretty and spacious the room was for that price. Great bathroom, kitchenette and the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. I mean it! The amazing breakfast was served on the terrace....

Totally impressed with this B&B - we stayed in the Shell self-catering apartment which was as advertised: small, self contained apartment with basic kitchen facilities. The decor was modern and homely, bathroom clean and kitchen small with all necessary facilities, DStv and a small safe were also available for use. The B&B is situated a little out of the main...

Ocean Bay guest house is situated in a quiet, safe, large development of houses less than one kilometre from the beach. Our accommodation consisted of a small kitchen and large lounge which opened onto a balcony with table and chairs where you could sit or eat while overlooking the very attractive pool and large, well maintained gardens. There was a...

The Ocean Bay Luxury Guesthouse is a very peaceful and relaxing place. Kirsten and Sven and the staff offers excellent service.

We had a fine stay at The Ocean Bay Guesthouse, not really what we expected but it was okay, there was no electricity and the room and interior a bit dated. Kirsten was very nice and helpful, the breakfast was good, the location is not really close to the beach as you would expect from the name. Overall okay stay,...

Dear Maggi, we are very surprised, that the dripping power was a problem for you. It seemed that you enjoyed your stay anyway. There was a problem in the garden, it was dark and we couldn't work on it. The next morning the electrician came immediately and solved the problem. We didn't know it before, just when the other guests...

“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!”
