Ocean View Self-Catering

Ocean View Self-catering is situated 30 km outside of East London in a small, quaint village called Kidd's Beach. The accommodation is smart and friendly. It is not inside a family home, but adjacent to, so privacy is assured within a homely environment.

The room has stunning sea views and is situated alongside a dune. Dolphins can be seen most days and whales during season.

It is an ideal stopover for business people wanting to avoid city life as well as for holiday makers travelling between the Cape and Kwazulu-Natal/Wild Coast. One restaurant and a coffee shop are within walking distance.

booking enquiry no obligation!

Great for resting and relaxing, but also beautiful for walking along the beach & lagoon. Very friendly hosts who made sure we had everything we could possibly need. Price according to quality is extremely good."
