Guests at Ocean View House are truly spoilt for choice, they can find peace under the ancient milkwood trees that shade the park-like gardens, relax at the sun-trapped pool deck or explore the mountain stream and koi ponds that dot the terrain or enjoy a swim in the solar-heated swimming pool.

We enjoyed a 4 night stay and loved every moment of it! It’s our 3rd time returning to this lovely establishment . Spacious rooms with a lovely garden and sea view ! Breakfast is included and well worth it ! We received a complimentary bottle of red wine as we are returning quests. Mark at reception was amazing , always ready to help and accommodate our every need. The garden left me breathless and just loved the koi fish and waterfall . I can highly recommend this establishment .

Honestly, stop searching, you found the right place. It’s the perfect combination of breathtaking ocean views (my favorite room 22!) closeness to city, closeness to nature attractions and relative quite. Very special thanks to my friends Supreme, Mark and Cleo who are just wonderful people. Individual attention and sensitivity amidst beautiful surroundings. Will be back soon!

Dear Ocean View staff, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for making our stay a very memorable one once again. I travelled with my son this time and he stayed on for an additional week. He cant stop talking about how he was looked after once I had left. We had a great room (5) with a fantastic view doesn't get much better than that. Your staff were fantastic under the circumstances during these terrible times. You do not get better views and beautiful sunsets from your rooms and the pool deck. Good luck with the new pool it looks fantastic. I love being able to walk down to Beta beach probably one of my favorite's of all time. Hope to see you all soon.

We absolutely loved our stay! We received a very warm welcome, and great service throughout. Our room was beautifully furnished & the views breathtakingly beautiful! We didn't want to leave. We opted for in-room dining for breakfast, to savor every second of the incredible views. We will definitely be back!
