About Ocean Bed

Ocean Bed is situated in Gonubie, a small village town about 15 minutes' drive from East London. Gonubie offers a bit of everything for everyone, and is known for its boardwalk that stretches from Gonubie Point to the main swimming beach, next to the Gonubie river mouth.

Along the boardwalk is a tidal pool and the most spectacular scenery, and for the bird lovers there's the Gonubie Bird Sanctuary which is home to over 160 bird species, including the crowned crane which can often be seen walking along the roads in Gonubie.

For golf enthusiasts there's the Gonubie Golf Club, and for keen anglers there's a long stretch of shore to choose from. Gonubie also offers restaurants, shops, a laundromat, and much more. Attractions include the East London Aquarium, East London Zoo, and the East London Museum which is famous for the Coelacanth.

Beach: Walking distance from family friendly beach. Ideal overnight venue for those travelling from Cape Town to Durban, from Port Elizabeth to Durban or Gauteng.

Wow. What can I say. I will recommend this place 12 out of 10. Rooms are awsome. The host Melinda was counting down the days with us until our arival. Checking up on us if there was an issue she sorted it out. Amazing little gem. Hope to see them soon again

My wife and I loved the whole package. We could not have asked for better. And the B&B is so close to shops and restaurants and the beach. We will definitely be back. Awesome service! Melinda was a super hostess.

The owner is a delightful sweet lady. She welcomed us so warmly that we felt very much at home. The place was so clean and cozy. A unique fashioned style. The room was warm and cozy. The bed slept well. There was a braai facility which we made use of and we were lucky to have nice weather. Just a pity it wasnt warm enough to have a swim. The place was centrally located to shops and other places. Ive recommended to family and friends. I would stay here again at any time.

The location was good, I enjoyed the fact that there was breakfast in the morning and the bedrooms was cosy. I felt comfortable, loved staying there and can definitely recommend.
