African Dreams Guest House Camps Bay
Ranked #24 of 54 Camps Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 February 2016

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 shown such restraint!
An absolute pleasure to stay with great breakfasts and a sincere and warm welcome that lasted throughout. We were sorry to leave.

Room Tip: Just stay, you can't choose a bad one!

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. They had their grandson, Fanie (same name as the owner) who is absolutely adorable! The room is great with an en suite bathroom and a mini bar which was super useful, as it meant I had instant access to bottled water!
The pool is beautiful with sensational views.
The only reason I have not given it five stars is because the WiFi wasn't really working in my room and I didn't expect the walk down to the beach to be quite so long and a little confusing, but no matter, I walked it once and it was great for everything else. Fanie and Jeanette and the staff are all fabulous.
Thank you!

Room Tip: Leopard room has a mini kitchenette!

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. We really enjoyed eating our breakfast on the terrace which has beautiful views. Our room Lions Den was very spacious and comfortable. Jeanette and Fanie could not do enough for us. They were so nice. Their son is a super travel guide who will take you on a guided tour in his car to where you want to go - Whale watching, a day safari to see the big 5 or where ever else you would like to go. He is very knowledgeable and has a lovely manner about him.
We would highly recommend African Dreams.

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 of our grandparents. Fanie and Jeanette are hospitable and friendly without being intrusive. The accommodation is spotless, spacious, airy and luxurious. The views are rivalled only by the excellent breakfasts. Table Mountain, the restaurants and shops of Camps Bay, the City and the peninsula are all easily accessible by car.

Wonderful wonderful hospitality! Having never visited South Africa before it was a sheer delight to meet local people and the hospitality was second to none! Right from the start we were treated like part of the family and the guest house is beautiful! Fab pool, terrace with the best view I have EVER seen (Camps Bay with Table Mountain right behind), breakfast, rooms - everything you could wish for! Thank you both for making us feel so welcome.
