Comfortable guest house on a hill above the Indian Ocean. Superb view. Clean, kind and helpful land lady. Safe parking. It is not far to an excellent beach, very well suited for kiting. You can easily drive or hike to Cape Agulhas, the divide between the Indian and the Atlantic Ocean. We didn't find convincing restaurants with overlooks over the... More

Ocean View is a rather tired B&B. The breakfast was uninspired, with very limited choice. Whilst the bed was comfortable the room we stayed in was weird in the extreme. The room was open plan , with toilet and shower facilities being behind saloon type swing doors. There was a strange collection of wall hangings and bric a brac. There... More

Very nice B&B with an incredible view down to the Indian Ocean (the Atlantic is just around the corner ;-) ) Excellent & nice service. Bedroom was spaceous, bathroom had some interesting room-concept with a shower-wall right next to the door. Coffee and fridge are in the room :-) Loads of pillows to choose from ;-)

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
