“Great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

The guesthouse is in a great location with a beautiful garden and secure parking. The view is wonderful. We really enjoyed the breakfast (including Nutella) and the Lindt treat. We definitely would stay at the Ocean View House again.

Excellent service. Helpful staff. Breathtaking views. Beautiful gardens. Secure. Nicely updated rooms. Reasonable pricing. Just perfect.

This place delivers.

Ayreton (sorry if I spelt thins wrong sir) and Bronwynne are truly amazing staff and need to be recognized for their exceptional commitment to customer service. Bronwynne was amazing in helping us arrange our reservations and details prior to our arrival. Ayreton was a machine and bent over backwards to accommodate every request we had.....Thank you for sending us to Beluga....what a great restaurant!

Excellent hotel. Will definitely visit again when we go back to South Africa.....and we will be back. What more could you ask for.

Stay at ocean view house you won't be disappointed!

On the quiet side of busy touristy Camps Bay this size of land / garden is unusual for the Atlantic Seaboard where space is at a premium. Nice garden, (rare here) across the road from the sea with good views. Excellent Breakfast. Large rooms & Bathrooms. Own Patio. Very clean and well run. Plenty of parking - Best to have own transport for this part of Cape Town or Taxi (public bus also.) Female Traveller - felt safe on property. June 2014 (out of season) was excellent value for this prime area in Cape Town.

Exceptionally delightful in all aspects - Splendid decor, well located, delightful accommodation and privacy, ambiance, beautiful setting with carefully tended garden and views, warm and welcoming staff, outstanding breakfast - just delightful overall, could have stayed longer and a MUST return establishment! Loved the funky little touches to the interior!

Bus tokens must be sold at Oceanview. This is the best location - between sea and mountains. There was construction happening at neighboring properties that interfered with baby's naps. Next time warn

Dear Henrietta V

Thank you for your great review! We thoroughly enjoyed having you and your son here for the Birthday Celebration. Thank you for sharing that with us.

You will be pleased to hear that the MyCiti card machine has been installed and that we are now able to sell them! Construction has also come to a close and peace has returned to our beautiful Camps Bay.

The whole team, including the Koi fish, sends their regards.

We hope to see you soon.
