This was our first trip to South Africa and our first experience staying at a guest house. I wasn't sure what to expect as I've always stayed in hotels but was blown away by the experience of staying in the guest houses especially this one. It is in a lovely area of Capetown and the view from the house is... More

We stayed 5 nights at African Dreams and weren’t overwhelmed by the place. The rooms are nice and clean, the kitchens have everything you need for self catering and there are tables and chairs outside, where you can have a meal. The Bella Fang studio is quite small, so you could not really have had a meal inside other than... More

Well maintained B&B Great breakfast with a breath taking view on the False Bay Warm welcome by the hosts Good information of where to go and what to do in the area provided by the hosts Vannessa and Peter. Good place to stay for German and English speaking visitors because both hosts are bi-lingual. We would come back!
