Thank you so much to Fanie and Jeanette for being such wonderful hosts. My wife and I had booked the Lion Room (the 'penthouse' room on the top floor) for a couple of nights after getting back from my cousin's wedding in Paarl. The room was spacious, had an incredibly comfortable bed, kitchen facilities and a little mini-bar which was...

So happy with our choice of accommodation while in Camps Bay. We arrived very early from the airport and our room was not ready. we had flown all the way from New Zealand and it was so nice to be welcomed and offered lovely hot coffee and comfy place to wait. The room was ready quickly and we enjoyed a...

We really enjoyed our recent stay at African Dreams. We were looked after so well by Fanie and Jeanette. The room was lovely, delicious home cooked breakfast and the view amazing. Well stocked (and good value!) mini bar so we tended to enjoy a couple of beers watching the sunset. Camps bay itself was just a 15 minute walk away...

Stayed in the Leopard Room for a week and could not have wished for more. A beautifully presented, spacious and spotlessly clean suite with sliding doors direct onto to the poolside. Fanie & Jeanette were welcoming, helpful and always ready to help. Even more remarkable is that Fanie did not gloat about the ODI cricket result. I could not have...

I had a great time at African Dreams. I was warmly welcomed and I loved the views and my room which opened up onto the pool terrace. The owners are SO KIND and friendly, I really liked them.

My wife, our baby and I spent 2 weeks in African Dreams in January 16. We had a lovely time. Jeanette and Fanie were very hospitable and made us feel at home.

Many of the B&Bs in this prestigious neighbourhood are too independent and snooty to accept young children. From the moment we arrived with our 9 month old baby, it was clear that the owners and hosts of African Dreams, Fanie and Jeanette, not only accept babies but welcome them with warmth and open arms. It felt like entering the home...
