stayed at sweet ocean view over a quick weekend break thanks to the excellent staff and lovely room for the experience. Great location though parking on the road only. Very comfortable and quiet though extra cost for dstv stations.

Bridget and Memory assisted me in every way possible to accommodate my family. They stayed in the Blue Berry House. Neat, amazing interior and views. Breakfasts great! Central and near to the ocean. All taxis and Uber can be arranged while you wait! Interesting people...More

I booked my brother and his wife in at Sweet Ocean View Guesthouse. Their service from day one was impressive! When my family arrived we found that they were to stay in Sweet Berries (the blue house). So neat, clean, fully equipped and newly renovated...More

Good location in Sea Point, but "ocean view" is very euphemistic (800 m far away). Mamangement charges 39 Rand per day for WIFI although this should be free (website). Good breakfast, but all customers are jammed together at one big table.

POSITIVE: Good location, friendly staff, fresh orange juice NEGATIVE: small room, breakfast crammed together at one common table, expensive internet charge although webpage promises free wifi, no aircondition, no real ocean viewMore

Hi there, I am not sure about that. You better ask them direct. It is usually easy to arrange for a nanny in S.A. - though it may be costly if you do it through the hotel. Have a great trip & stay :))

Hi, Sorry to be late in replying to your question. One week should be sufficient to visit a game park, even 2-4 days would be OK. But I recommend to inquire with the S.A. tourism board or any travel agent. Hope you will... More
