We had under floor heating in the bathroom and a heater in the lounge / bed room so we were very comfortable The breakfast was... More

We are struggling to imagine a more beautiful setting than this. The views were to die for, the welcome warm, the room large, clean and comfortable. Sadly the chef was away on hols, so we had to eat dinners out, but had two excellent meals at restaurants recommended in Hout Bay. If you are in this area and don't stay... More

Our room was perfect, it has a fantastic view, it was immaculately clean and with a small terrace above the lovely swimming pool. Breakfast was the... More

Such friendly hospitality, most beautiful views, very comfortable and clean rooms and top quality breakfasts. Very well-located accommodation close to the centre and many interesting attractions nearby. We loved every minute of our stay!

We arrived at Dreamhouse for the last 5 days of our 3 week tour of South Africa. This guest house certainly lived up to its name, it was certainly a dream. We were welcomed by Kristina who was very friendly and extremely helpful during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for her, she organised trips & taxis as we... More

Simply gets better and better . Our third stay and Ivanka and her team were excellent as usual but this time Ivanka and her husband have upgraded some of their rooms and outdoor areas which has made this guest house even better than ever and in my opinion definitely the number one guest house in Hout Bay.Thanks for everything my...

It`s beyond AMAZING, we were travelling for our honeymoon and it was the perfect choice. The hotel is slightly outside the attraction areas of city center but in the middle of peaceful, quiet neighborhood, It`s about 15-20 mins drive from camps bay, The hotel view is marvellous ocean, greenery and mountains that you can't get enough of. We rented a... More
