We were very pleased with our five nights at African Dreams. We stayed in the Lion's Den on the top floor with a wrap-around deck which provided the most amazing panoramic view of the mountains, the ocean, and the city. It was a picture perfect location with easy access to the beach below and the many restaurants (a really healthy... More

First, the warnings, the wind blows really hard quite frequently limiting the amount of comfortable time you can spend outside unless it is very warm. There is a bit of a walk (15-20 min) or taxi ride (5 min) to get down the hill to restaurants and shopping on the beach. Breakfast was good, but it was more or less... More

We stayed in African dreams for one week. The owners are really very helpfull, friendly, nice and caring. It's situated uphill in Camps Bay. 20 minutes walk to the beach. Nice views. Also we can recommand Hansie, the son of the owners who organized a great trip to Cape point and the vineyards.

We had a last minute booking in Africa Dreams so our expectations were low. However we got a marvellous reception and welcome from Fanie and Jeanette to their excellent property. Although we got the smallest room in the house (last availability) it was more than adequate for our needs with all the required facilities. The setting for the property is... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in Lion's Den on the top floor and the room was very clean and spacious, with nice little kitchenette, huge comfortable bed, although for the price I think we expected a little more luxury. Superb views from the room and balcony! The only thing - the shower head definitely needs replacement! The breakfast was... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful guesthouses that we have stayed in. The setting is beautiful. There is the most amazing view from the balcony. Camps Bay seems to be a wealthy suburb. All the houses look very ritzy. There is just a small drive down the hill to the beach and shops and restaurants that line... More

We stayed two days in the guesthouse and it was a great start for our Africa voyage. The view from the terrace is nice, the rooms are comfortable and the owners are kind and helpful. There is also a very cold swimmingpool which is very refreshing after a long flight. The breakfast was very tasty and gave us energy for... More

We had the a Elephant Room which I certainly enjoyed as a collector of anything elephant! It was a large room, with sliding mirror doors along the entire length of one wall hiding... More
