We stayed for 3 nights in the Captains Cabin. This room and views were amazing. We had private access to the shared pool and a fabulous G&T patio which was small but perfect for the 2 of us. The guesthouse itself is very well presented, airy and immaculately clean, with 2 sitting, one of which is a balcony with breathtaking...

We stayed one night. The rooms are very bright and well equipped. We loved the view from the porch which is really, really nice. There are great restaurants nearby. We recommend The Table which serves excellent Italian food. Breakfast at the guest house is continental standard.

We only stayed for one night, but it was well worth the visit. Great rooms, excellent views, and about a 5min walk from the centre where all bars and restaurants are located. Breakfast was good as well. Would have gave 5/5 but we did feel there was a slight lack of privacy, due to the communal area being right outside...

I stayed two nights in the Ocean View. And it really does have a wonderful view. After a long flight it was so nice to get into the comfortable bed, with white cotton sheets and a soft duvet, I slept so well. Breakfast next morning was served buffet style. The ladies who looked after us were very welcoming, introduced themselves...

Amazing place with breath taking view. one of the best places we stayed in on our garden route trip. the rooms are comfortable and clean. the value you get for this price is very good. The "Captain Cabin" room is amazing and very luxury, but the wifi signal there almost doesn't exist. the wifi in the other rooms are good....

We upgraded the room to a suite so we have an ocean view (make sure when you book the you have a view apparently some rooms don't) The room is very small, the bathroom is part of the room, and the worse thing, the bed, it's only 1.90 in lengths I'm a tall guy and it was the worst sleep...

We stayed in the Carribean Suite with a sea view for 4 nights. The owner was really welcoming, and the room spotless, with a wonderful view from the shared balcony. There is a really comfy large bed, cannot fault anything about this property. It is in a really good location, within walking distance of shops and restaurants.

Based on the ratings, expected much but let down. Doesn't have a security system or gates for the 'private parking'. Our car was broken into by thieves here. No one stays at the hotel apart from the guests, so service is minimal. We couldn't even find drinking water in the night as kitchen was locked and no one around. Location...

summer-place, Manager at Ocean Watch Guest House, responded to this review

Due to this incident, future clients are now advised by management, to not leave any luggage in their car, while in residence, so there is no reason for anyone to break in.
