We stayed in room 23 it is a seperate block on the big property, with awesome uninterrupted views of the ocean, and 12 Apostilles. Breakfasts were lovely. Lovely to see whales so close this time, probably 50 metres from the road this time. We also spotted two huge schools of

When we arrived at the Ocean View House, we found that we had been upgraded to a room with sea views. This was an amazing surprise, and really made our last night in South Africa, it was one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. The room was lovely, very big, clean

Lovely property. Views of both sea & the 12 apostles! We had Room 14- which is suite right upstairs from reception. Last min booking and we paid an absurd rate for what it was. Most of mini bar is NOT included- oddly (I’m not sure I ever stayed in a hotel that didn’t provide

Hi there, I am looking at booking your panorama room. What view does it have?
Good day, my apology - I had responded but it appears the response did not reach you. We have 3 Panoramam Suites, all 3 have balconies and ocean views. Suite #17&18 are on the upper floor and overlook the pool deck with Ocean , while suite #10 overlooks the garden with Ocean. Best Regards Katrin

Dear Travelight, great hear from you!! the Pooldeck rooms open out onto the pool Deck. From there you have great ocean views however it is not very private as you don't have your own terrace or balcony! Best Regards Katrin

Dear Justin, Ocean View House is 1.5km from the Camps Bay Beach/centre. Camps Bay is a small suburb to Cape Town and about 8km from the City Centre. Walkin into Camps Bay takes about 20min. To see sights like V&A Waterfront (10km), Table Mountain (8km), Cape of Good Hope ( ca 55km), Greenmarket square ( 8km) and the City , you can take a Taxi or the bus. But for Cape f Good hope I think I would rent a car. May be just meant a car for at least 2-3 days, to get to the places a bit further away. Alternatively you can book guided tours in a group and they will collect & drop you at the guest house. Best Regards Katrin
