“DIDN'T WANT TO WAKE UP!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

From the moment of our arrival - our very first port of call on our very first trip to South Africa - Fanie and Jeanette took us into their wonderful home like old friends. They're a wonderful team: Fanie works hard and cheerfully at factual information and routeing to help get the best from ones holiday. Jeanette simply bubbles warmth and friendship (alongside everything else she does behind the scenes). Our Room (Lion's Den) was spectacular with wonderful views and every thoughtful luxury one needed. Food was another lovely part of the "dream" but was a reality! Such a wonderful, relaxing and yet informative series of nights to introduce us to Camps Bay and Cape Town.

Room Tip: Don't worry - they'll all be good!

We stayed here 1 week over New Year with our 2 kids and really spent great holidays in this guesthouse. The owners are very friendly and helpful - you really feel at home - which is so important when you are travelling with kids. The view from the terrace for Breakfast is just amazing!
we had 2 family rooms and a separate bathroom - very well decorated and with direct access to the pool!

Very friendly couple run the guest house. Also very helpful and willing to make dinner reservations for us and let us use their p.c to search the net for things to do in Cape Town. The view is great. It is very neat and clean. Breakfast has everything you need. Our room had an aircon and a small T.V with some satellite channels. We had keys to come and go as we please. There is off street parking but not behind a locked gate. It is situated close to restaurants and pubs but not within walking distance.

Very helpful couple, for example we were able to reserve and print the cable car tickets in advance. The location and view are breathtaking. The only problem was that with 2 relatively older children 13 and 11 years the room was a bit small, the sofa bed was too small for both, otherwise to be recommended.

We stayed during our honeymoon during November 2013. Our arrival to Cape Town couldn´t have been better! Impressive view all over camps bay and the most friendly welcome and service from the owners.
The room was (and probably still is) so beautiful!!!
We can just recomend this place as we don´t know another place to stay in Cape Town, but if we ever go back this is the place to stay, for sure!!!!
10 out of 10!

We spent five nights at African Dreams. It has a fantastic location high in the cliffs of Camps Bay close to all the restaurants and clubs etc. The owners, Jeanette and Fanie could not be more helpful in suggesting restaurants and places to go locally. Would recommend this guest house

We stayed at this guesthouse during Sept 2013. What a lovely guesthouse, with breath taking views over Camps bay and the sea. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, and really do offer some wonderful information on what to do while staying there. We stayed in 'n room with en-suite bathroom (toilet, basin and shower) Lovely crisp white linen with a dash of sea colours. lovely cosy room with stunning views, even from the bathroom! We felt at home from the minute we walked in. Will definitely stay here again. The house is close to Table Mountain, variety of restaurants and a beautiful scenic route will take you to the Waterfront and other surroundings.
