Dreamhouse is in the hills above Hout Bay and the Sat Nav proved useful in getting there. We had the Yellow Room with stunning views across Hout Bay for two nights. The room was large, clean and well appointed. We had a wonderful breakfast on the terrace also with fantastic views. The owners Louis and Ivanka were very welcoming and... More

Wow. Our first stay in Capetown ever - and what a welcome. We arrived on New Year's Eve and stayed only two nights but the atmosphere that the hosts created and the location of this five-star-feeling-bed-and-breakfast made (and make) it a real dreamhouse. Incredible breakfast. Fantastic view (Hout Bay). The room itself was not the biggest (choose a bigger one)... More

Ivanca made our stay in Hout Bay absolutely fantastic. Her guesthouse consists of around 20 suites, each one lovely decorated with direct way towards the garden with 2 Pools to Chose of. The garden is a little wonderland with small relax areas. The breakfast is served either inside or outside and was absolutely amazing, with a choice of 10 breads,... More

Our first time in South Africa - day 2. Make sure you get real good directions to this superb accommodation, as it is not easy to find. But once you are there, you are in the very good hands of your hostess Ivanka, who bends over backwards to make your stay pleasureable. And it was! We spent 3 nights there.... More

This is a beautiful spot , super views and the garden is wonderfully maintained. Yes the drive is very steep so we always left our car out on the road. Each night on our return the security guard was there to greet us, our bed turned down, chocolate on the pillow. Our room was always spotless and staff very kind... More
