I am totally impressed. Spent my 30th birthday here. The owner snezana surprised me with flowers in my roomdream, decorated the the room with rose petals and chocolates. They are so welcoming and do not have a problem if you Get visitors over. She aspires to make guests feel happy. The breakfast is delicious and the staff are wonderful. There may not be a pool but soon one will be built later this year however for now the deck is absolutely beautiful with the view of the beach. I love it here

For various reasons we needed to leave Ocean Vista (with a heavy heart) to go to another guest house. Nothing compares to this BNB! It’s clean and beautiful and the breakfast is simple, delicious and healthy. The staff are trained by a world class host. The hospitality industry in SA needs to play a bit of catch up to Ocean Vista. It’s a 10/10 stay.

From the moment we arrived with the warm welcome we received from Snezana and all her staff we knew our stay was going to be exactly what we had hoped for. There is a certain personal touch here that makes it unique in every way. Highly recommended. Graham & Julie
