We both work in hospitality and have stayed in different places of different star ratings all over the world and we usually are quite open minded but this...

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...

We really enjoyed our stay at Dreamhouse. We were lucky to have a gorgeous room by the pool that had a stunning view of the bay.

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....

I cannot fault this guest house one bit. It gets 11/10 from me. The rooms are very cozy and I have stayed in almost all of them on various business trips. The view of Hout Bay exquisite. The breakfasts in the morning were delicious especially the freshly baked bread. The Hostess is very friendly and helpful. Will definately be returing...
