We can highly recommend ocean view house. Stayed here for three nights, excellent location to discover Cape Town from. Near to beaches and plenty of nice restaurants. Property looks lovely, very well kept. Helpful staff, excellent breakfast. We can recommend room 8 and 9 for families; connecting doors and very large space.
