Ocean View Guest B&B
Ranked #2 of 5 Struisbaai B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 October 2017

We coose this place because it had a sea view, which is something you should look for in Agulhas. We dropped by and were welcome by the owner Sarah who was very warm and friendly. There was a shower and bathtub which gives you different options. The morning breakast was delicious, eggs, bacon, fresh bread, fruits, everything you could wish for. Cherry on the cake, we were lucky to see whales breaching in the far.. Sarah is very nice and gives you many advices, it was nice sharing experiences with her.
Would love to go back and spend a little more time there.

This is an average B&B with a very good host. Layout of the rooms are okay. An open bathroom with bath toilet and basin. Another shower and toilet outside....with a small tiny door with a view of the sea. Quirky but strange. The host, Sarah was very friendly and attentive. Good value for money but dont expect fancy 4 or 5 stars then it is fine.

Positive comments first. The host Sarah is a star and was going an extra mile to make us feel comfortable. The breakfast was rich and varied. The view from the breakfast room is amazing. We stayed in the green room, which was quite odd. An open bathroom with bath, toilet and basin. Another bathroom with shower and toilet but no basin. The bed was just a standard double bed, no queen, no extra length. The couches and armchairs all over need to be replaced or at least upholstered. A nice and comfortable outside seating area was missing. All in all not a 4 star standard.

The room was warm and comfy even in the middle of winter and had a lovely view of the Indian Ocean. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed a generous and tasty breakfast.
Sarah's intimate knowledge of the area enabled us to take advantage of the last rays of sunlight to see the southern tip of Africa and then see the best of the coast (from the whales to the penguins) as we continued our journey towards Capetown on the following day.

She put so much heart and effort to decorate this lovely B&B. We stayed only for one night in the suite, since we traveled with our little one. It was cozy and lovely- Sarah even had toys ready. Since winter it was pretty stormy and the beds were heated, which was just amazing. Breakfast is like being home at your mom's....best view to the Ocean.

Thanks for everything!

After a very long drive we arrived at Ocean View in Struisbaai which must be the most southern part of Africa. Sarah is an amazing hostess and full of great information about the town and area. She advised us on the best place to have dinner and where we should visit. The bedrooms have a commanding view over the ocean and are bright and airy with tea and coffee making facilities.
Breakfast is a feast which just goes on and on and you are full up for the rest of the day....this is definitely a B&B not to miss if you are coming this far south.

View is stunning if you had a sea view room. Good breakfasts. Sarah is very knowledgeable about the area and can direct you to where to go and what to visit. Room was adequate but bathroom on small side. Pillows on bed need to be replaced. Dressing gowns hanging from cupboard door looked out of place as well ad the hairdryer dangling on a hook. I would have preferred a separate entrance to our room
