We stayed here for 3 nights begin December. We loved everything about it: the location, the room, the view, the breakfast, the owner and her staff. We stayed in the White Room by the pool. We had a beautiful view from our room! Hout Bay is a wonderful town, only 15 minutes from the center of Cape Town, very close...

The Dreamhouse feels more like a friendly village than a B&B as it rambles from one room to the next or down to one of two pools and the bar area. The views across the valley and down to Hout bay are magnificent but your room choice does have a big impact on how much you get to enjoy them....

Dreamhouse is a very appropriate name, because the stunning views make this guesthouse a real dream location. The friendly and helpful staff made our stay very memorable. Our room was clean and well equipped, and the Amarula Cream on our last night was a nice gesture.

“If you have Mobility problems, avoid the Violet suite, there are a lot of outdoor steps (over35) to the breakfast room alone.”
