Brilliant!
A friend recommended this place to me. Knowing her, I knew I will like it. This place totally surpassed my expectations. The service is 5 star, the food is amazing, the views are breathtaking, and the best part....the people. Everyone here wants to make your stay memorable. I love this place and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Definitely going back. Thank you to Snez and Jen for all that you did to ensure that I am well taken care of, I appreciate it.

What a recognition for us when guests come by recommendation and how precious to have such a lovely memento here - Thank you Shadi! It is gratifying when the lasting impression is about the people, as we are here for you/our guests and devoted to meet and surpass the expected and provide a caring, welcoming place one would like to come back to. It was an honour to host you and we hope you will enrich our days again soon.

For the Gueshouse that goes above and BEYOND!!!!
Myself and my husband were celebrating our joint birthday weekend at Ocean Vista in October 2019 and our expectations were exceeded with the level of service, efficiency and smiles offered by all the staff. We had requested the guesthouse to assist us in arranging special surprises in the room and all our requests were not only met but carried out with such a sense of care and effort. Ocean Vista puts the hard work into every small detail of your stay to ensure you feel right at home. The owner Snezana is as lovely as they come with a warm and inviting demeanour!The accommodations are lovely with scenic views and a delightful breakfast to top it all off. We will surely be returning to Ocean Vista and a big thanks to all the staff especially Debbie who went above and beyond to ensure we had a birthday weekend to remember, we cannot thank you enough for your efficiency and willingness to ensure every surprise was carried out flawlessly, you are a gem!

Dear Amy, Thank you so much from all of us for this amazing review, I am not sure how we missed to see it at the time, my humble apologies for a delay in replying! Debbie was truly excited about a task and we were so happy to have exceeded your expectations, providing a warm and beautiful setting for your rather unique celebration and meeting you and your husband was an absolute pleasure! Lovingly guided by you both we did take it very seriously so are thrilled to hear again how much you appreciated our effort and little touches and the memories will last a long time 💘 Debbie is sadly no longer at Ocean Vista but the rest of us will be waiting for your next visit -- maybe an anniversary?? Or no special occasion at all... Many thanks again for your generous feedback and warm greetings to you both on behalf of the whole team! Snezana

simply the best!
from the very warm and yet perfectly discreet welcome, to my stunning, ocean facing room. I had booked room 6, an ocean facing king. It is worth paying the small premium! The room is spacious, spotless, un cluttered , has plenty of storage, includes a tea/coffee station and has a wonderful ensuite bathroom with walk in shower; no horrid shower curtain in sight! :) . Super comfortable bed and spotless linen. Breakfast, what a treat! I sat on the terrace offering uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean and was thoroughly spoilt with the most delicious cooked to order breakfast. To Snezana and the Ocean Vista Team, thank you for making me feel so welcome and so relaxed. I will be back. Warmest wishes

What an amazing compliment, THANK YOU Gordon! For discovering us, for taking the time to write such an informative review, for appreciating our contemporary setting and the value provided. Breakfast is really lovingly prepared at Ocean Vista, using only free range eggs and served al fresco whenever possible... which is about 320 days a year, with sights and sounds of the ocean below :) I am so glad you had a great stay and we would be thrilled to welcome you back. Best wishes, Snezana, Debbie and the team

Simply superb!!
We stayed three nights, and couldn’t fault the guest house - Snezana, and Debbie made us feel so welcome! And Prudence took such good care of us! Breakfast was complimented by a spectacular ocean, one morning we even spent an hour watching 100 or more Dolphins from the balcony!! Perfect honesty bar for sunset or sunrise drinks. A short Uber trip into town for dinner and drinks. Hoping to come back again soon!! Thank you ladies for your hospitality! :)

Extra special care
Fabulous stay at this sparkling guest house with gorgeous views and the most accommodating hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. I was unable to make breakfast and was presented daily with delicious sandwiches to take on my early way. Thank you so much for all your trouble. Great location, great hosts and comfort!

Felt like we were on an exotic island getaway with the beach in our front yard
This place is amazing, my husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we couldn't have hoped for a better place. You have the view of the ocean constantly, whether from your room or on the deck upstairs. The breakfast is delicious, my mouth still waters when I think of it. We were made to feel so comfortable by both the owner Snezana ( who I miss dearly) and all the staff. It is also located conveniently with all restaurants and attractions nearby. We are definitely looking forward to visiting again for our anniversary.

Thank you for a fabulous review, dearest Cebi, I felt so chuffed and a bit taken aback at the time, plus it was a busy time and I was to go to Belgrade . . . can hardly believe it so much time has gone by . . .Please know I had you often in my thoughts in the meantime! Hope all is well in your world and your family has grown. All of us enjoyed getting to know you and your husband over that special week and I hope that you will indeed find a way to return to "your island" for your anniversary...maybe this year, there is a a few months to plan for it :) It was wonderful to hear that you missed me but the very best accolade of all for me is to hear that you will visit again and I promise an ever-better Ocean Vista and some new little touches for your comfort and enjoyment! A big warm thank you from every member of the staff for entrusting us with your honeymoon and Thanks again for your lovely review. Love, Snezana

Fantastic Place
My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days after a hectic travel schedule. Fantastic view, great facilities, amazing deck overlooking the ocean. Top notch bedrooms with a modern design. Great breakfast and excellent staff. Couldn't have asked for more. Will definitely return.

Dear Staffan, thanks a million for giving Ocean Vista wings on TripAdvisor! I obviously fail you badly, replying to this very dear review only now, but more than a year since hosting you the memory of those few days is still vivid. The tranquility and beautiful simplicity you liked about Ocean Vista has become our trademark in the meantime. Trusting your amazing work continues to involve intercontinental travels I know it is not easy to slot Durban in but if you happen to be passing by it will be heartwarming to see you and your lovely wife back. Best wishes, Snezana
