First timers to South Africa and the standard of accommodation always amazed us once we got used to seeing Armed response Security, electric fences and infra red beams! The Dreamhouse was above what we had been expecting having come from the Waterfront in Cape Town which we also enjoyed.. We were upgraded on arrival to a room with a view... More

I have got to give them praise for their amazing spread they provided at breakfast - was that much and more! Loved it. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. The pool area was lovely to relax around. BUT We had a room sort of at the back of the house (not sure of the name of the room) but... More

8 days at the dreamhouse. We enjoyed the great view, the excellent breakfast and the warm hospitality from the staff. The first days we stayed in the serenityroom, and at our arrival it was a bit disappointing: not comform the foto on the website: smaller by placing a sofa instead of the chairs, a strange smell from the bathroom and...

First class greeting, arranged airport transfers, called taxis when we needed, printed off our robben island tickets, excellent breakfast with views. We had 3 nights here in December 2013. No shops within walking distance so had one day exploring cape town/hout bay & one day at the guesthouse as a relaxing break before Xmas. Would pay to bring some snacks/pre... More

The Dreamhouse has an indisputable great view of the city. The sparkling pool was irresistible. We found the backyard garden to be so peaceful and relaxing. We particularly liked the meticulous service and presentation provided at breakfast by the staff. We found the daily evening weather forecast and chocolate candies to be a sweet touch. However, we were disappointed about... More

Superb quiet location just 20 minutes from Cape Town. Our accommodation was very comfortable with great views of Hout Bay and beyond. The breakfast was excellent and well presented in a comfortable dining space either on the patio or inside both with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Anne and the Dreamhouse team made our stay quite special. They were... More

Overpriced. The most expensive stay during our 3 weeks trip in SA and not the best at all. Far from CT and Hout Bay. Had to park in the street. Got a so-called "secluded herb garden" but was asked to let the light at night for other customers... The room was tiny and dark. Kingbed consist in 2 single bed... More

Very comfortable and good attention to detail. Staff very helpful and informative. Our room had the bathroom as part of it which was a bit different and the view from the bath was spectacular! The gardens below the house were lovely and the caged birds added some interest. Being set high up above Hout Bay gives the most wonderful views.... More

Very cozy and friendly atmosphere, great staff and awesome Cape Town insider information of places to go! Lovely arranged garden with several small relaxing areas. Nice pools and a great terrace with a spectacular bay view where a wonderful breakfast is being served. We are already looking forward to coming back soon!!

We stayed at Dreahouse 2 nights in August. We really enjoyed the place: very warm welcome from Anne, great room with splendid view, excellent breakfast. Rooms are very clean, fully equipped, and confortable. Anne was very helpful and careful, and gave us a lot of advice for our visits. Moreover, Hout Bay is close to cape town (about 20 mn... More
