We stayed here for two nights and what a wonderful location on the beach with top quality accommodation . 5 mins drive to the quaint village of Wilderness . The quality of the staff, food, and views is outstanding. Open kitchen with customised breakfast menu made for a nice change from the standard breakfast menu. Basically say what you want and it gets cooked for you . Jay was an excellent host, helpful and friendly but not intrusive . Really enjoyed our stay, one thing I did raise is the pool and decking have no sun shade/ umbrella which was a challenge as we needed a down day by the pool. Jay was helpful, explained the wind makes it difficult to maintain shades which I understand but I’m confident he will find a solution. Treat yourself and stay here

We know Wilderness well, it s one of my fav places! This guest house is located right on the beach with direct access. The rooms are small and adequate but have the most annoying light switches in the world!!! The wardrobe is really hard to open without breaking your nails and the TV stops the door opening properly! But it has access to a terrace next to the pool which is nice! We had plenty of towels and hot water during our stay. Breakfast was very nice especially when it didn't coincide with loadshedding. The views from breakfast are spectacular. The manager, Alex, was surely and uncommunicative. No one helped us with our bags when we left despite 2 long flights of stairs, and my husband has a heart problem. Alex never really spoke to us our entire 4 day stay! Never gave any help or advice of where to eat or go..in SA we are used to the managers being so helpful that his attitude really marred our stay. It's a stunning location and the property is nice. I imagine the higher rooms are better, making use of the view. I was very disappointed with our room but we did have lovely weather!

Alex and Yana are the worlds best hosts. They always try and make my say here as pleasant as possible. My room had the most beautiful view of the ocean and I felt like a queen staying in this guest house. I can recommend this place to anyone with a smile.

The situation of the guesthouse is perfect! We enjoyed breakfast with dolphins in the sea in front of us. The direct beach acces is perfect, as well as the breakfast. The room was good but showed some tear and we missed a small fridge on the room. There was a nice balcony with seats but in the room not a single chair. The lady from the reception was perfect, very informative, helpful and taking good care of the guests. We had a very nice stay all in all!

Location perfect and house magnificent. Room was excellent with great views of the beach, very clean and great linen; bathroom was also excellent. Beach superb and breakfast looking over the beach was amazing. All staff were excellent, but have to make a special mention to Yana. She was the perfect host, always available and gave great recommendations for trips and especially restaurants. If in Wilderness again, would not stay anywhere else.

We had the privilege to stay at Ocean View Luxury Guesthouse for 3 nites and it was absolutely incredible... Perfect undesturbed views of the Ocean... A gorgeous penthouse suite with all the amenities and more... The most scrumpteous breakfast with so many variety of choice... (Princess makes a mean omelet) And a host with the coolest accent... What more can a man ask for after being kocked down for way too long I highly recommend this place if you want an amazing garden route living experience Big Up Alex !!!!

We are very disappointed with this guest house! We have stayed there many times over the years on trips from the U.S. This year, we paid for our reservation in February, 2019 for a stay in December, 2019 (high season). We booked our entire South Africa vacation around the availability at this property, including our rental cars and flights. Without notice, we received a booking.com email stating our reservation was canceled. Only after calling the Ocean View did we learn that the property was sold to a new owner, that it won't be a guest house any longer, and all reservations have been canceled without offering any alternatives. It has previously changed owners over the years, without this issue. Now it is nearly impossible to get a ocean front reservation in December. How can booking.com allow this to happen? Couldn't the new owners have honored the reservations until after the holiday peak season? This creates serious issues with our entire trip! Frustrated!

We had a paid (!) booking for this hotel (from several months ago) and today received notice that the hotel has cancelled the booking - without any further explanation. We will now have to look for another place to stay.

We stayed two short nights in Wilderness on our way to Kariega Game Reserve. Our room was very clean and we got a tour of the entire house upon arrival. We were comp’d a bottle of wine since it was our anniversary which was a nice unexpected touch. The house is gorgeous and you cannot beat the beach views! Breakfast in the morning was delicious and served fresh. Can’t wait to come back!
