We had 4 nights as a family of four; it's unusual for me not to find something that could be improved but this was just perfect. Glenn & Judy were perfect hosts along with the 3 wonderful ladies who looked after our every request. Great location in the centre of Plett. Easy access to beaches and fantastic advice on what to do in the local area. If you go to Plett stay here in one of the upstairs rooms with amazing views over the bay towards the east. Sunrise in the morning just stunning. Great breakfasts and well appointed in very respect.

Stayed: April 2014

This Guest House is a slice of Paradise. It's a beautiful home in a beautiful location. Made very welcome by Judy and Glenn. Sea views from our bedroom, 5 minute walk to town and the beach. 10 of us stayed here and were extremely well looked after. The girls who work there not only made breakfast and cleaned rooms/the house, they also did our laundry every day. I cannot recommend this place enough.....stay here!!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room - they are stunning (Most rooms do have them, but some more spectacular than...

We stayed for 2 nights in The Captain's Cabin at Ocean Watch Guest house. The guest house was recommended to us by my parents who had stayed before and been treated like royalty and Glenn and Judy welcomed us so warmly and treated us like old friends. So beautifully decorated, our room was elegant, spacious and chic with a great little patio next to the pool. Lovely touches like vintage silver trays and cut glass decanters with port wine in the bedrooms and freshly ground cafetiere coffee. Judy is an extremely beautiful and glamorous lady obviously with amazing taste and it shows in the decor and ambience. Breakfast was delicious we would recommend the Omelettes and Monica who served and took care of us was so sweet. the views from the deck upstairs were to die for across the beautiful bay. It's also close and safe to walk into town. Glenn and Judy were wonderful friendly hosts, and made sure we were comfortable and looked after making reservations for us and helping us to plan our onward travel. I would really recommend staying with them we had a lovely relaxing time.

Room Tip: we loved the captains cabin downstairs spacious and private.

We had 3 nights with Glen and Judy and they really were the perfect hosts. They were very helpful, telling us where to go and what to see and finding us restaurants in the evening. The breakfasts were excellent and all the staff very friendly. We would highly recommend it.
