5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Fanie and Jeanette were wonderful hosts, we usually stay in a hotel when visiting Cape Town but found this amazing Guest House by chance when browsing for accommodation for our trip as hotels have outpriced themselves. We stayed for 5 nights (family of 4 adults)and had 2 rooms beside each other at the pool level. The guest house was very clean, comfortable and breakfasts were very good. African Dreams is the perfect place to stay while in the area, good location, easy to find and best of all amazing views from all areas of the property. Good parking right at the door so no trailing of luggage.Would recommend this property to anyone... forget the hotels this is the place to stay and very good value considering the area!!

Fanie and Jeanette made us very welcome and were perfect hosts. The views are amazing, the weather was fab. It was excellent value for money. We were a family of 4 staying in Serengeti and Giraffe rooms (double and twin) with patio doors onto pool terrace with a large shared bathroom. Good choice of breakfast. We would definitely recommend this guest house and would love to return.

After an extraordinary tour of Kruger, St Lucia and The Drakensburg - could African Dreams live up to our now high expectations? Without a doubt! The views are to die for - the rooms both luxurious and convenient. The kitchenettes are a great touch giving you an alternative to eating out if you need one. The location is ideal - 10 minutes to the Cable Car - or 15 minutes to the waterfront (in winter out of rush hour!)The pool was pristine - our boys braved a dip but it was short. Thank you Fanie and Jeanette for your hospitality.

Room Tip: Book the Lion's Den if you can

We had an AWESOME experience staying at African Dreams B&B. Our hosts were welcoming and the room was comfortable & clean. Jeanette and Fanny shared great day trip ideas and tips to make make sure we did not encounter typical tourist frustrations. Our breakfast was typical of most B&B's in the area and tasted great. The location is close enough to Cape Town and other attractions to be convenient but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet, away from the fast pace of busy towns.

For once, accomodation that lives up to its billing! Jeanette and Fanny were the perfect hosts. Friendly, helpful and generous. Certainly value for money. If we ever visit Capetown in the future we will not look any further than African Dreams....Perfect!
