We loved our four night stay here......we arrived after an overnight flight from the UK and although we took our time getting to Ocean View House we were still there well before check-in time, even so, much to our delight we were able to access our room immediately. We could have a shower and grab a couple of hours of...

The place was fantastic, and the staff from check in to check out could not have done more for all of our group. Great leisurely breakfasts, lovely Malay meal, local knowledge and help getting to and from places of Interest.

From the very first telephone conversation and email the team at Ocean View House have been exceptional. A group of us stayed at OVH for 5 nights and the whole experience was wonderful. The location is perfect - away from the main strip but close enough to walk. We were lucky enough to be there for OVH Cape Malay evening...

We spend two wonderful days at the Ocean View House. From our arrival to departure the staff went the extra mile to make us feel welcomed, valued and special. This is a gem in Camps Bay. The short walk into Camps Bay is delightful with the twelve apostles providing a stunning backdrop on one side and the Ocean over the...

My wife and I, with two friends, stayed for eight nights in Ocean View, two weeks ago. It was wonderful. The rooms and garden are magnificent. The location is perfect - in the quiet southern part of Camps Bay,yet just a stroll or short taxi ride into the main drag with its restaurants and bars. The staff were kind and...

We had a most enjoyable stay here, thanks to the beautiful garden, tasteful and very comfortable interiors, delicious breakfast and in particular the courteous, friendly and attentive staff, headed up by Ayrton who was most helpful and gracious. We would've loved to stay in this beautiful corner of Bakoven for longer - perhaps next time! Till then, Thanks once again,...

I'm a bit of a cricket fan and stayed here during the England test match. Everything was just about perfect. The guest house was about a 15 minute walk from the main bars and restaurant in Camps Bay. We had a room with a beautiful view overlooking the sea with the twelve apostle mountains behind us. The grounds are attractive...

We spent the first 4 nights of our honeymoon here and couldn't have wanted for more.
