My husband and I celebrated our two round anniversaries, and how lucky were we to have come to the Dreamhouse in Hout Bay. We simply had the most fabulous time of our lives together. 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

My wife and I recently stayed for the whole 2 weeks of our vacation in South Africa. Whilst our room was on the small side (it was the last room available),and without views, it was accordingly competitively priced so not an issue. This aside, all aspects of our stay was perfect - from the welcome we received, to the sumptuous... More

We stayed for two nights at the end of our holiday and found the girls at reception very welcoming but no parking available outside our guest house. Note there are two properties here both with exceedingly steep drives and parking was definitely an issue. Its also a fair distance to hout bay not walking distance for sure but the views... More

We spent a fantastic 4 days at Dreamhouse in Hout Bay. The staff were very friendly and attentive, service was excellent and the breakfast one of the best we have had in any hotel or B&B. We initially had an issue with our room, as it was not a suite with a balcony as we thought. Still not sure whether... More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed @ the Dreamhouse. It is an exceptional property with wonderful views of the mountain, Chapmans Peak and the sea. Our room ( the silver suite ) was spotlessly clean and well laid out. Only downside was the lesser view,on our previous visit we had booked one of the rooms at a higher... More
