The booking and payment is done professionally and safe. All good. We'd be happy to return.

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... More

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... More

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... 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.

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!
