Snez and Jens warm welcome just out of this world. This ideal location is a 5min walk away from the beach, COVID protocols are observed at all times and rooms are cleaned twice daily. The breakfast with The Dorothy Performance was a pleasant surprise. I look forward to coming back to Ocean Vista. 10/10 on location, food, hospitality and rooms!

Dear Ayanda, what a touching compliment from a wonderful lady whose return stay would be a great honour and a pleasure for us all, thank you! It was a perfect weekend in many ways but "Heaven on earth" is an accolade that really goes above and beyond and I will cherish it forever! Ocean Vista is a labour of love and a little safe haven for the entire team and we can not be happier you so enjoyed the tranquillity, our hospitality and Dorothy's rendition of Qongqothwane for your birthday. May it bring you good fortune you deserve and may it remain a hope for all for better days. Warmest wishes, love and much gratitude from the whole team!

I've stayed at Ocean Vista guesthouse twice, and I will do so again! Ocean Vista is a tranquil, beautiful, neat and clean guesthouse, and I've thoroughly enjoyed my stays there. The view and rooms are amazing, it's close to the beach, the staff and owner are warm and welcoming and the breakfasts definitely get 5 stars.

Ocean Vista exceeded our expectations - from a stunning view, cleanliness, a friendly hostess, what more could we ask for. We had a beautiful room over looking the sea. Each morning we were served a delicious breakfast on the deck. We will definitely visit again! Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

Dear Chelsea, your thoughtful review made me miss your smiles, what a beautiful token and how lovely to hear Ocean Vista exceeded your expectations! Our aim is to provide an antidote to this crazy times and the whole team cares to making each guest's experience enjoyable and memorable. Breakfast on the deck and our big views set the tone for a holiday mood even when there is business to be done and we are proud cleanliness is noted as much as tranquility, our favourite two attributes. It was such a pleasure to meet you both and I will be looking forward to your next visit. All the very best meanwhile!

No words! WOW! From the moment we arrived I knew I had chosen the best place to spend the night celebrating my hubby's birthday. From the initial correspondence via email I was assisted with every request and no detail was left unturned- when we opened the door there was a bottle of wine on ice with birthday balloons wishing for hubby's birthday! This will definitely be our go to place when we have to stay over in Durban agin. Thank you again for the amazing hospitality
