Profile: Camps Bay

Profile: Camps Bay

Camps Bay is Cape Town’s premier tourist hotspot, neatly seated between the sparkling Atlantic Ocean and the rough and rugged Twelve Apostles mountain range. Its star attraction is its palm-fringed beach, where bronzed bodies play volleyball, and swimmers frolic in the warm waves.

Just a short drive from Cape Town’s city center, the village-like suburb boasts its own trendy selection of bars, restaurants, and shops, many of which dot the main drag, Victoria Road. Come sunset you can unwind with a cocktail, and then take your seat for an evening of musicals, cabaret, or comedy, at Theatre On The Bay.

    This property is in a Wonderful location with breath taking views of the mountains coming down to the rocky ocean and the property has beautifully designed gardens that comfort you before and after exploring the excitements of Cape Town and the surrounding environments. However, the best part of my stay at Ocean View House was not just the immaculately designed place and room but the far above superior staff at this respite in life! Each and everyone of the staff and the owners of Ocean View House stopped their busy schedules to individually, privately to assist our personal needs and to decrease stresses as they could and to encourage us during our time with them. All I can say is Thank You to Each and Everyone one of the staff for the privileged time we had at Ocean View House.

    This was our last stop during our South Africa trip and glad we chose this hotel. Super serene, lush and peaceful with an amazing staff. Mark checked us in and brought us complimentary bubbly for my bday - so sweet! We stayed in the Traveller room which was cute and clean with an amazing view of the mountain and ocean (comfy beds too with a nice turn down service). Supreme at the front desk gave us recommendations and made us resies for Bungalow for dinner which was one of the better meals we've had on this trip. The hotel is only a 10-15 scenic minute walk from the Camps Bay strip. The breakfast here hotel was also one of the best we've had on this trip. We will definitely return to Ocean View House...we LOVED our time here!!
