The Beach House is situated perfectly, basically on the beach, although due to the huge sand dunes you can not really see the ocean. The staff are really friendly and helpful and breakfast are really delicious with fresh juice and fruit. Cooling down in the pool after a day on the beach is also very nice. The rooms facilities however... More

This place needs a serious upgrade. Rooms not as in photo's. Bed is making a noise every time you turn, fan did not work. Cupboards in very bad condition. Room very small and cramped. Pool dirty. Breakfast was okay. Lady on duty was friendly. Will never stay here again.

We arrived at the time of a sand storm and were warmly welcomed by Maryann and shown to our spacious room. Although we didn't have a sea view the room was very comfortable with a seating area and a kitchen area as well as a spacious bathroom. Good Restaurants were within 10 - 15 minutes walk which was ideal. Unfortunately... More

Sand everywhere not their fault but if you are in the sand dunes wouldn't you have a pool cover. No pool. Electrics old and scary. Room minuscule. In room facilities poor Staff very sweet but not efficient. Shame as Hout Bay is a lovely destination. Would never go there again.

My Partner and I stayed in Room 5. The room is relatively small and has a tiny bathroom. Upon check in we were reminded that we booked the smallest room, which to me was irrelevant and unasked for. The room are in need of a thorough clean and the mattress itself was not too comfortable. The room was stuffy, despite... More

Not really a beach house but on sand dunes. Have to exit premises and walk two streets. Asked to pay when payment made already. Rather embarrassing as they check emails. Nice dip in pool and breakfast basic. Cleaning staff dedicated.

We had a very nice stay at Beach House B&B. The rooms are tidy and clean. The beds are very good. Friendly people. The only tips we have are: - Please update the bathroom, shower is outdated and was not comfortable. - In case of full house, more service staff required during breakfast. For the rest we had a great... More

We stayed at this B&B one night in December, overall it was a pleasant stay. However, the units bathroom light was not working which made showering difficult in the dark. The coffee and tea station had not been cleaned or refilled we had to ask the lady to come back and sort it out. Besides this, the staff were very... More

The rooms at the Beach House a very basic but you’ve got what you need and it’s clean and safe. It’s in a good location but with no views (except maybe if you get one of the top rooms). The tv in the room has just a few channels but there is another tv in the main house which has... More

Very nice place and very central. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The location is very close to everything in Hout Bay so it is easy to move around. Also very close to the beach and harbor. Would go there again :)
