I only stayed at Ocean View House for one night at the end of April, which really is unfortunate as this place is beautiful. You have views of the mountain to one side and the ocean straight ahead. Very quiet and relaxing and the breakfast is fantastic. I will admit I wasn't expecting so much as this is a small...

Dear ScottHayley, Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to review our establishment, we appreciate each and every bit of feedback that we receive.

We spent 3 marvellous days in a garden suite, next to the small river in the green with trees, plants and our own fish pond . The staff is very friendly, it is clean, the breakfast offer all what you need. It is a very charming quiet place to stay 5 min drive from Camps Bay beach.

From the moment we arrived with its wonderful setting on the coast with the twelve apostles towering behind us and the sun setting into the ocean below, we knew we had chosen right.

Nice comfortable B&B only 15 minutes walking from Camps-Bay's shops, restaurants and beach. Rooms are clean and Well equipped, nice garden with views on Ocean and 12 Apostles mountain. Breakfast was perfect! Ask for a room with airco, a ventilator was not enough to keep our room cool in summer.
