The guesthouse has a beautiful view over the ocean. We treated ourselves to the honeymoon suite which was everything one could expect with a pleasant stoep overlooking the sea, easy access to the pool and even a Jacuzzi bath. Unfortunately dinner was not available at the guesthouse on the nights we stayed, but the owner kindly made bookings for us... More

I made booking with Arthur (one of the owners) in early Jan ,I arranged dinner accommodation and a cake for my boyfriends birthday on arrival. It was wonderful to see that nothing was forgotten.

This place was a last minute find in a desperate attempt to join my family on vacation and what a treat! The guest house is ideally located: being in a tranquil enough space to be removed from the "rush" of holiday makers but still within close proximity to swimming beaches and other amenities in the area such as the Wild...

A delightful and comfortable guest house with most attentive hosts, Arthur and Ursula. The sea view is worth a visit. And there is a lovely outdoor pool. Excellent and varied breakfast are served. Highly recommended for a short or long stay in the area as it has all the charms of the sub-tropical South Coast. Also excellent va,he for money.

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... More
