hi. my husband and i would love to book a room with you. However, on the last night, we need to go to the airport at 4am. Do you provide airport transfer in the middle of the night and how much will it be?
Hi there, are all the superior rooms upstairs units with sea views? Thank you
Dear Lesaj, yes there are 2 superior rooms on the 1.floor with sea views. The 3. superior room has a terrace and garden views with sea views from the terrace! Best Regards Katrin

Hi there, I am looking at booking your panorama room. What view does it have?

Hello, I am very excited for my stay at ocean view. I have booked the pool deck room. Can anyone tell me if it has an ocean view or if its private?
Dear Travelight, great hear from you!! the Pooldeck rooms open out onto the pool Deck. From there you have great ocean views however it is not very private as you don't have your own terrace or balcony! Best Regards Katrin

We are looking into visiting Cape Town for our honeymoon and want to see all the sights the area has to offer. Would you recommend getting a rental car if we stayed here? It seems like it's a bit off the beaten path of the city. Thanks!
Dear Justin, Ocean View House is 1.5km from the Camps Bay Beach/centre. Camps Bay is a small suburb to Cape Town and about 8km from the City Centre. Walkin into Camps Bay takes about 20min. To see sights like V&A Waterfront (10km), Table Mountain (8km), Cape of Good Hope ( ca 55km), Greenmarket square ( 8km) and the City , you can take a Taxi or the bus. But for Cape f Good hope I think I would rent a car. May be just meant a car for at least 2-3 days, to get to the places a bit further away. Alternatively you can book guided tours in a group and they will collect & drop you at the guest house. Best Regards Katrin

"Standard rooms 3 & 4 have fantastic views"
"All rooms are charming, we were on the ground floor and thought it was great."
"Most rooms have great views. In summer, choose the Garden Suite. For longer stays, reserve one of the apartments"
"Rooms with aview a must! Recently renovated. Not ideal for small children!"
"If you want a sea view stay higher up in the resort."
US$115 - US$853 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
