January 2016: “Fabulous stay at Ocean Park Guest House in Umkomaas” Excellent stay, thank you Lana for a wonderful week, your friendly and efficient staff, accommodation and catering was of a high standard! I would recommend your Guest House to all - thank you very much! Tanya

January 2016: Vriendelik, skoon, stil, privaat, goeie ligging met heerlike kos! Vriendelike mense. Jou kamer word elke dag mooi skoon gemaak en is so geleë dat jy lekker stil en privaat in jou kamer kan verkeer, of heerlik kuier om die swembad. Die oggend en aandete word puik voorberei wat van klein tot groot tevrede sal stel! Die ligging van die gastehuis is goed geleë, naby aan mooi strande en nie te ver van die lughawe af nie. Lana, baie dankie! Tanja J

January 2016: “Better than expected” The staff was very friendly although we felt that housekeeping services was too early and the breakfast as well, its the holidays we wanted to lie in but overall it was a good experience. thanks to all. Anette

December 2015: “Great hospitality” What a lovely stay we had. Great value for money. Everything so clean, fresh and pleasant - from the room, bedding to crockery and cutlery. The breakfast was good too. The manager, Lana, so friendly and accommodative. Thanks for the great time. We will surely call again. Bongeka S

December 2015: “All is well” We were welcomed very nicely. Lana was vey nice to us even though we checked in late but there were no hassles whatsoever... towels were clean and all was well :) Had a quite and relaxed weekend. Would mos def go back. Mbalizama Phemba

December 2015: Ontspannende, private, skoon rustige ervaring!
Baie mooi skoon en privaat! Alles wat ek nodig gehad het vir 'n goeie wegbreek van die myne en die stad se betogings en se nonsens! Het 'n week gebly en kon niks verkeerd vind nie. Behalwe vir Lana wat baie gasvry was, was selfs die kombuis personeel baie ordentlik en behulpsaam. Baie lekker ontbyt en kuier area in die aand saam ander gaste maak die plek 'n definitiewe ja vir volgende keer!

November 2015: “Lovely Quiet Weekend Away at (or Close to) the Beach” The room we were given for our weekend stay was massive and decorated very well, the single beds were huge and extremely comfortable to sleep in. Breakfast was very pleasant with many options available and staff were both approachable and friendly. The only hiccup was we ordered toasted sandwiches one evening for dinner after having our breakfast, but when we arrived back after a full day out they knew nothing about our dinner plans, unfortunately the message had not been received but this was very quickly rectified and the toasted sandwiches were prepared and delivered to our room and were absolutely awesome! Pool looks amazing and leaves didn't really seem to be a big issue during November but the weather and other commitments meant we didn't actually get to use this facility but it was a very pleasant weekend getaway all things considered we would definitely go back

October 2015: “Family weekend” My family trip to Ocean Park Guest House was wonderful. My kids had a ball of a time with the pool, put put and the pets. The place was peaceful and quiet. The beach was great with the mall close by. The croc world was a hit with the kids and they wanted to go there every day. The only three things that I can comment on was 1) That I did not get a chance to meet Lana, the replacement lady was wonderful and my small son spent lots of time with her. 2) the pool had leaves in it, it was very windy and even though the guy cleaned it up the wind caused leaves to fall in the pool. 3) On the Sunday a guest that came in late for breakfast was rude to the staff. The ladies at breakfast were great and made sure that the kids were happy. It was a wonderful experience and my family are really keen on going there again.
Many Thanks.
Abel Williams

July 2015: The owner of the guest house is very friendly and made us feel at home immediately. The guest house is well-located (close to the town centre), but not close to the beach, which is a short drive from the guest house. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. We really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Park Guest House!

July 2015: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of 2 nights in June 2015... Lana was very helpful & welcoming and she even gave us some roots from her herb garden to take it back. The rooms were nice, clean and well-maintained. The breakfast was simple but sumptuos. We never got to use the pool due to the weather, but I'm sure it would be maintained as well. Our room had a small kitchennete and that was helpful as we had our own little braai area. The guesthouse also had a mini golf for entertainment. The wi-fi in our room was very poor. All in all a thumbs up and would certainly recommend it. Thanks

July 2015: We stayed at Ocean Park for 2 nights for a relaxed, quiet time. The atmosphere and the people were warm and welcoming, with awesome food. The Guest House couldn't have been located at a better place, with restaurants close by and the beautiful view of the ocean. An added advantage was access to the wi-fi. The rooms were clean and neat. Lana (the manager) was very helpful and pleasant. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay.

June 2015: My partner and I would like to thank you for a wonderful stay at your BnB on the weekend of the 26th of June 2015.
A special "thank you" for the extra effort of waiting up for us (wee-hour check-in). We found the rooms cosy and comfortable and the staff very accomodating. All in all, it was an experience of a home away from home.
Ndumi Mbambo

June 2015: We had the best time, very peaceful place to stay, Lana was helpful Please Lana tell the ladies to clean the outside chairs, dusting them off in the morning just before breakfast, other than that all was on point.

January 2015: I had a wonderful stay at Ocean Park . The whole environment was extremely clean and well kept. The staff were so obliging and did everything to respond to any request. The food was so good that we cancelled eating out and ate on site . I would highly recommend Ocean Park as a place to stay especially for divers. Sue Lumby – United Kingdom

January 2015: We stayed at Ocean Park for 3 nights whilst diving Aliwal Shoal. There were 13 in our party and we took over the whole guest house, but nothing was too much trouble for Lana. She made us feel so welcome. The rooms were lovely and clean and the bar area was a great place to catch up on diving stories before having dinner. We were given a packed breakfast as we were out early every morning, we ate in on our first night, but due to the cooking being so good that we chose to have dinner at the guest house every night of our stay. Rhona H (UK)

November 2014: Good morning Lana. Mdu & I would like convey our gratitude for the great hospitality we received at your guest house. It was our first time experience to be on a romantic getaway and you've made it the most enjoyable and memorable event. I'm normally very good in expressing how happy I am but I was overwhelmed with joy such that I got emotional and didn't know what to say to you to thank you for everything you've done for us. I was somehow scared as I didn't know how to prepare for this or what to expect but you made our stay the most interesting and remarkable. We, from the depth of our hearts say: THANK YOU! We shall see you soon...and yes, we're going to spread the word LOL! Kind Regards, Nontando T.C. Mthethwa

January 2014: We stayed there for only one day but everything to me was 100%. There's actually no room for improvement. I welcomed the fact that there was a bar fridge with soft drinks and  space for our personal stuff because not all the b&b's have fridges in the rooms. Felicity Pillay

December 2013 : “Excellent value for money” I stayed at Ocean Park for two nights on a quick visit to the South coast. The owner Lana makes you feel right at home! I stayed in the double room away from the main house. The room is well appointed and beautifully decorated with complimentary toiletries, coffee and tea. A minibar is also available. Laundry can be done by the staff for a reasonable fee. The property also has a beautiful pool and cash bar. I was impressed with the variety served at breakfast and the staff was very professional and helpful. I highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone travelling in this area. JS Le Roux

Just a quick note to say a BIG THANK YOU for your hospitality, the weekend that Allan and I stayed over with you at Ocean Park. We were really impressed with your Management of the Lodge and the cleanliness and overall order there. Well done!! I must say I felt more inspired when I got back to Blue Haze and have since had a whole range of new linen made for the beds, bought new towels, implemented a housekeeping stock issue and control sytem and generally had a shake up!

I hope that you are well and that life is treating you and Levi with love and kindness. Take care and thanks again for an enjoyable and relaxing stay at Ocean Park. If you are ever passing this way, give us a shout and come and have a break.

Love and 1000 smiles! Angela, Blue Haze Country Lodge

January 2011: Our stay was exceptional but too short! We have family in Umkomaas and often spend short breaks with them - previously at LaLa Manzi but not recently, and we love to play golf at Umkomaas. We have now found the place we'll come back to! Lana was wonderful and we hope to visit again soon! Elaine Mcmillan


December 2010: all positive and above average comments were received by myself from crew Chris McCreedy

December 2010: Lana's easy going and down to earth attitude is much appreciated and makes a big difference to make one feel welcome and at ease. I have stayed at places that may score 10/10 for all the above but the atmosphere is so clinical and cold that it is actualy unpleasant. I like the indigenous plants in the garden and would like to see some newcomers (indigenous plants) on my future visits. Winston Geringer

March 2010: I'm travelling all over KZN and Mpumalanga during the week. Ocean Park Guest House is the best. I have seen them all, hotels, B&B's and geust houses. To single out one aspect, the rooms: they the most comfortable I ever stayed in. Thanks to Lana and her team for the 7 star sevice 24/7. Speedy van Rensburg

December 2009 : As you'll probably remember I went through a very rough time at the time I stayed at your place.
All I needed was a 'warm' place with kind people and a good bed.
You certainly fulfiled these wishes and even more. You sometimes found the time to give me a listening ear and whenever I wanted to, I could join you and your family. Your kindness helped me a lot and the guesthouse is absolutely lovely and beautiful!! I felt surrounded with love and caring and I am still very grateful to you.
As I said to you before, I admire your courage and strength to lead this guesthouse, have a little baby and to be a very good 'hostess' to all guests. You are great!!!!!
Monique A van de Laar
