We were on a road trip and needed somewhere to stay and when we called the Ocean View Guesthouse the phone was answered promptly (first good sign) and I wondered if we would really have an Ocean View. It was pouring with rain when we arrived and were met by the owner and shown to our room. Wow! The duvet... More

Very warm servise, superious room! We visited Kaap Agulhas and then had a diner in nice restaurant, Spent a night listening to the breath of two oceans. Our daughter was delighted too. Thank you! Отличный отель, хорошие хозяева, приятный городок. Если бы было время, провели бы на ночь больше, даже готовы были бы пожертвовать одной из двух ночей в Кейптауне.

Great appartment and a very charming and helpful person who is runnig the Guest B&B, she phoned up the white shark company to arrange a trip. The breakfast was abundant and tasteful. Go to Pelicans at the harbour for eating fish!

A little out of town, but with a great view over the ocean. Very friendly and helpful owner, good breakfast (but more boerewoers would be welcome!). We had the 'red room' which has both inside and outside shower - the latter is great on a hot day!

My wife and I and brother stayed at this place while we visited Cape Agulhas. Nice place, clean and breakfast was great, would stay here again. The views were fantastic. We were all very happy with the stay and the people were great.

Very happy with our stay! The host was very friendly and flexible (we asked to have breakfast earlier which was not a problem). The room was nice and cozy, all details were well thought through by the host.

OK - so Struissbai is a little off the beaten track and probably not more than a 1 night stay for most people who are ticking the Cape Aghulas box, which included us! And the Ocean View is in a lovely location that does indeed overlook the ocean, while the owner seemed to be a genuinely friendly lady who personally... More

Toilet, shower, bathtub (plus 2 washbasins) and bed all in one room … what else do I have to say ? BUT: there's a second loo + shower outside on the balcony... I have to blame myself, though, for nor looking at the pictures close enough.

Ocean View is a comfortably furnished, clean guest house with great sea views from some rooms and the public areas. It is close to excellent restaurants, stunning beaches and also to the Southern Most point of the continent of Africa. We enjoyed our weekend at Struisbaai.

We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts in various parts of the world and I will say without a doubt, this was the most odd. I will admit the owner was very kind and I almost wonder if that's why there are so many "excellent" reviews....maybe the reviewers didn't want to hurt her feelings but goodness....I really wish more...
