About Ocean View House

Situated in Camps Bay, Cape Town, Ocean View House is a luxurious 14-room establishment with superb views of the Atlantic. The rooms and suites, including the Presidential Suite, are all sea facing, ensuring breathtaking views, particularly of the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean.

Facilities include a swimming pool and a beautiful, landscaped, award-winning garden. The Ocean View House is one of a kind, offering beautiful and luxurious accommodation in an intimate 'guest house' setting. Guests are able to stroll through our lush tropical garden and experience waterfalls, a river and a Koi pond.

Our pool deck is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing afternoon, while the sunset deck is the perfect spot to watch the sun sink down over the horizon or for those with patience, to perhaps see Southern Right whales as they make their way along our rugged coastline.

Breakfast is served in the Out of Africa restaurant and includes a delicious buffet as well as delectable English breakfast, which are made to order. Our guests are also welcome to make use of the bar, sipping sundowners while enjoying one of the world's most sought after locations.

Superb stay for 6 days at this small hotel. Lovely spot very friendly/ helpful staff. Superb breakfasts.Stunning views and really handy for Camps Bay and all it's nightlife. Right below the 12 Apostles and you can actually see the gondolas going up to Table Mountain.The room which my husband and I had was obviously next in line for refurbishment as looked a bit tired , beautiful setting and layout,whereas my daughters room had been totally refurbished and the decor was lovely. Having said that was a great stay and would recommend to all

Very nice grounds. Wonderful view; even saw a whale from the pool deck. Pleasant room although a little plain. I'm not one for overly friendly or intrusive hosts but the atmosphere here felt a little too impersonal. Still, with such a great location, I would stay here again and again.

Great location, lovely views over the ocean, beautiful gardens, very relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay here.
