Spent a delightful few days in this gorgeous guesthouse. Professional hospitality and stunning rooms. The view is unbelievable. 180 degrees of ocean as well as the river mouth. One could not want for a more centrally located place. Shops and restaurants are in walking distance as well as the beach. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a special stay in Plett.... More

My room was cozy and comfortable on the top floor with a wonderful sitting area on the terrace to watch the crashing ocean and dramatic winter light from where... More

Spent one night together with 2 friends in single rooms. Panorama view from the shared balcony, great breakfast, amazing rooms, great and friendly host that meets every expectation. Thank you very much for having us, if we return to Plettenberg bay we definitely know where to stay.

We booked in for the first two nights of our honeymoon at this little piece of heaven. It was an amazing experience. The staff were extremely friendly, and very eager to help with booking restaurants and anything else we needed. The room (we stayed in the Captain) was amazing, those black out curtains of theirs had my new hubby very... More

This is a long overdue review for a simply wonderful guest house. I've stayed at Ocean Watch five or six times and love the property, Judy's gracious and helpful assistance, and the ladies Monica and Jessica who prepare a splendid breakfast and keep the place spick and span. Judy goes out of her way to help with dining recommendations, reservations,... More

We have been staying at An Ocean Watch regularly since 1997. It's beautifully decorated, spacious accommodation on two floors. The upstairs rooms and outside balcony have a slightly better view. The downstairs rooms have the benefit of being next to the pool. The owner Judy is a so lovely, very friendly and helpful with local restaurant recommendations and places to... More

We had the Shell Room and it is in our opinion the nicest room in this building with oceans view. The room itself is not really big, but this didn't bother. We got in touch with the owner just after one day. But she is really friendly and helpful. Because of our cheetah Tour we weren't able to attend at... More
