View is stunning if you had a sea view room. Good breakfasts. Sarah is very knowledgeable about the area and can direct you to where to go and what to visit. Room was adequate but bathroom on small side. Pillows on bed need to be replaced. Dressing gowns hanging from cupboard door looked out of place as well ad the...

The place is so unique! It looks a bit old-fashioned but everything is decorated with a lot of heart. They provided the PERFECT breakfast. You can also see a bunch of hummingbirds in the morning in front of the guesthouse. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for one night to visit Cape Agulhas. Nice views on the ocean with the fresh breeze coming in from the windows. Our room was average sized but the bathroom was really tiny. One can see that the owners took pride furnishing the room. Breakfast was good. We were travelling with a baby and they actually furnished the...

We only stayed here for one night, but it was nice. Location was very close to the coast. The place itself is a bit quirky, the inside courtyard was filled with plants. Our room was large and had two toilets, one besides a Jacuzzi tub and since that was inside of the bedroom, separated from the bed by a tall...

After reading the reviews of Ocean View, we had high expectations, however we were a bit disappointed during our 2-night stay here. It is very well situated with pleasant views from the dining room. Our room was a bit strange, and had two bathrooms - one inside the room (separated by a chest-high wall) and one en-suite. We had the...
