We have just spent two lovely weeks at African Dreams. Stunning views in a tranquil setting. We were really pleased with the accommodation, comfortable and clean and would recommend. Vanessa, along with her assistants, is the perfect host and nothing is too much trouble for them.

We enjoyed our stay in this nice house, with this wonderful atmosphere and service. The view from our apartement and the breakfast table was beautiful. The breakfast itself was delicious. We got a lot of helpful hints for our trips. A rental car is advisable.

Nice quiet, safe neighborhood, easily within reach of shopping and eating. Clean and comfy. Vanessa is the nicest host and we felt very welcome. The booking and payment is done professionally and safe. All good. We'd be happy to return. Unfortunately the sound carries and the love for music either piano in the morning or a more up-beat in the...

African Dreams is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Vanessa and Ashan (her assistant) are incredibly kind and accommodating. The accommodation was very comfortable and more than provided for every need, with many luxuries (like wifi, heated blankets, a private courtyard area, parking, a coffee machine, etc.) besides. It came to feel very much a home-away-from-home for me. With it's prime location...

Thank you Vanessa for a lovely stay. I have spent the last 5 weeks at African Dreams and have had a wonderful relaxing, comfortable stay here. I used the self catering facilities and with good shops all within a 5 km radius, I had all that I could possibly want. The scenery around the Cape is the best in South...

Cannot fault my two nights at this incredible B&B, in fact B&B doesn't do it justice. I actually stayed over the road from the main site due to the demand. My room was incredible with everything you would require and an amazing view. The owners of both properties are great, offering a highly professional service and a warm, friendly welcoming...

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.
