We come to Cape Town every February and this house is the best we have ever stayed in. It is very spacious and very, very well equipped. Most places We have stayed in, no matter how good, is always missing something that we could do with. Not so with this house there was lot's of everything, and great thought had been put into the requirements of a tourist staying for long periods away from home. The pictures and description show it being a great villa, but in reality it is actually better than is portrayed in the listing. It is also immaculately clean as is all the equipment and utensils.
It is located on a very secure estate, though it is quite safe to walk into Big Bay, or along to Table View. It is also convenient for taking the "Mycity" bus service, if you don't want to always take your car. Cape Town is becoming a nightmare for traffic, and the bus service is an alternative, efficient way of getting into town. Do try to avoid the rush hours, either driving or taking the bus, though.
All in all a fantastic place to stop, which really contributes to make a visit to the area a wonderful experience.
If you want to travel the Garden Route to play golf, watch whales (if you go at the right time of year) or simply enjoy the beauty of South Africa, Knysna is a wonderful place to visit, and this is an excellent house in which to stay. Ocean House is very well appointed and has everything you would ever need if you're planning on staying in the area. It overlooks the Indian Ocean and the Pezula golf estate, and is just a short drive from Knysna with it's wide range of shops and food stores and excellent restaurants around the harbour or on Thesen Island. And if you're planning on playing golf, the Pezula golf course meanders through the valleys behind the house and along the coast and is an excellent challenge for golfers of all standards. Just down the road from Pezula there is also Kynsna which is a traditional members' golf club that boarders the lagoon and Simola, a Jack Nicklaus designed course created up in the hills behind Knysna offering fantastic views across the whole area. Overall, it's a really good place to stay.
