After a dark, windy drive arriving late at Ocean Bay, we were greeted by Sven and Kirsten in the garden, who had already started cooking a 'brae' for their other guests. Having understandably given up hope of our arrival, we were nonetheless warmly welcomed with wine and delicious food. Both Kevin and I enjoyed the excellent company whilst the children played with the two other children chasing Kirsten's two dogs. The place itself is beautiful, the accommodation spacious and tastefully decorated, the garden and swimming pool with the brae a perfect setting to relax and enjoy. Kirsten and Sven themselves are truly lovely and our fond memories of Ocean Bay is as much to do with their warm hearted generosity as to their fantastic service and luxurious rooms. Jeffreys Bay itself is fun for the children, watching the surf dudes, rolling down sand dunes and the horse ride Kirsten recommended is a must if you like horseriding. Cantering on long empty beaches as the surf soaked us, will be a memory not easily forgotten! Kirsten also ensured we were made aware of all the places to eat and see in the area, whilst not being pushy about anything. We would highly recommend Ocean Bay to all travelling to Jeffrey's Bay without hesitation and hope to one day visit Kirsten and Sven again ourselves. Out of our three week, garden route tour, most places left us more than satisfied but Ocean Bay is that bit special and remembered with fondness.
