Excellent quality of stay! Super friendly owner, host, staff and fantastic rooms with great views. Breakfast and breakfast location is top as well as the rest of the upper deck. I would definitely advise this guest house for a stay in the Durban region (diving at Aliwah Shoal, trip to Drakensberg, visit Imfolozi, St Lucia, Isimangaliso,...). Top price/quality in comparison to other stays in South Africa!

Heartfelt thanks from all of us! For braving travel regulations and Covid uncertainties and arriving to South Africa from Europe! For extending your stay and making Ocean Vista your base for exploring KwaZulu-Natal. For your friendliness and especially for the gratuity for our ladies! Your comments mean so much at this trying time and we promise to keep the quality and friendly hospitality no matter the restrictions. Hope you had an easy flight home and your spirit of adventure will bring you to South Africa again one day! Kindest regards, Snezana

Beautiful breakfast with fresh variety, great views overlooking the sea. A tranquil and calm place to unwind and relax. Close to La Lucia for shopping and walking distance to Umhlanga promenade and beach.

A huge thank you for this compliment Victoria! So pleased you found Ocean Vista very tranquil and you loved our unhurried breakfast goings-on! La Lucia Mall is indeed just down the road and a walk in that direction can be combined with a stroll on the nearest beach but for less fit walkers and in the summer heat we recommend a drive to Umhlanga promenade :))
It would be awesome to be your blissful retreat again, here's hope it will be possible to travel without restrictions soon.

For our 6th wedding anniversary my husband surprised me with a 4 night stay at the breath taking ocean Vista Boutique Hotel. It was simply breath taking, from the gorgeous views of the ocean, to the clean simplistic decor I #oceanvista immediately on IG. The beautiful welcome gift and the gorgeous breakfast every morning was a wonderful delight. Thank you to the staff and our wonderful host Snezana for her beautiful home. Definitely worth it! Will be back soon!

The room came with everything we needed and a beautiful sea facing balcony! The breakfast was delicious and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. We felt very much at home whether it be at the pool or sitting on the sea facing balcony on the roof. We will most definately stay there again :)

Room tip: All rooms seem to be sea facing

This is so lovely from you guys and means a lot, thank you! I'm delighted you loved your room and balcony and enjoyed the enthusiastic attention we are dedicated to provide to every guest. The ocean has a big part in defining the Ocean Vista experience but I'm proud and grateful to hear our team completes the picture. Sending love and best wishes for your next chapter!

Beautiful and wonderful stay at Ocean Vista - marvelous staff with a smile 24/7 tailoring bespoke service to each guest. Magnificent view from each room plus the upper deck where we enjoyed our delicious breakfasts and cocktails. Spotlessly clean all areas, crisp cotton sheets, Nespresso coffee machine in every room. This was our second stay and every time is better than previous - my husband and i will certainly be returning.

Thank you for the memories of a full, happy house at the end of the year and for the love and support with this glowing review! Some guests just settle in and become part of the family--and you and yours definitely are so! Fortunately cocktails were possible as you had an expert, we must say we are not good at that We miss you already, Dorothy has made a note about extra pillows and breakfast likes, the house is sparkling and I will look forward to welcome you as very special return guests. ❤️
