Our second year to stay at Ocean View and once again amazing! What a joy it was for us to drive through the gates and be met by such wonderful people. The staff cannot do enough to help and are so friendly. The suites are magnificently furnished and the addition of the chef is the icing on the cake. We left with heavy hearts when we moved on to our next location and look forward to the time when we can visit again.

Ocean view is in Bakeoven, 1.2kms south of Camps which is perfect for walking off Lorenzo's fantastic breakfast. This place is amazing, we were on the top floor with stunning views of 12 apostles behind & ocean in front. Lam did everything he could to make us laze about in the beautiful gardens. The photos say it all. As a landscape gardener I was very impressed. Sunbathing next to the stream looking downhill to the ocean. Bliss. Cant wait to return & brew the afternoon tea

Having looked at the photos on trip advisor I didn't believe the views...but the setting is fantastic, the 12 Apostles behind and the ocean in front. As the sun sets the mountains turn orange, it's lovely.
The gardens too are beautiful.
Big "tick" for the staff, all very nice, I declined help with my bags when checking in, but later a gardener saw me pulling 2 bags and insisted to help! Lorenzo is excellent in the kitchen (does a mean fry up) and we exchanged our thoughts on the rugby. Reception Management team were also first class.
A lovely stay, thanks.

What a lovely surprise as we entered the gates of the Ocean View guest house! The variety of rooms set in beautiful landscape gardens will appeal to all tastes and pockets. Set in the hillside the views of the ocean are stunning. Ocean View is located in the quiet location at the top of Camps Bay but it is within easy walking distance of the beautiful beach, shops and eateries. Our pool view room was immaculate a good size and patio door onto a terrace where we could enjoy a drink from the honesty bar and watch the sun sets! The staff were friendly and very helpful and were prepared to go the extra mile to book trips etc and ensure your stay was special.

Room Tip: Such a good choice something for everyone

What a fantastic place to stay. If you are looking for guest house accommodation near Camps Bay then I highly recommend Ocean View. Great location about 1/2 a mile from Camps bay with stunning views, great staff - friendly and helpful, clean modern and spacious rooms with attention to detail. The garden was something else. The only thing I would say that would make this place even better would be a lounge/proper bar area to socalise with other guests but this does not detract from what a lovely place this is to stay.
