We are struggling to imagine a more beautiful setting than this. The views were to die for, the welcome warm, the room large, clean and comfortable. Sadly the chef was away on hols, so we had to eat dinners out, but had two excellent meals at restaurants recommended in Hout Bay. If you are in this area and don't stay...

My husband and I celebrated our two round anniversaries, and how lucky were we to have come to the Dreamhouse in Hout Bay. We simply had the most fabulous time of our lives together.

We arrived at Dreamhouse for the last 5 days of our 3 week tour of South Africa. This guest house certainly lived up to its name, it was certainly a dream. We were welcomed by Kristina who was very friendly and extremely helpful during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for her, she organised trips & taxis as we...

It`s beyond AMAZING, we were travelling for our honeymoon and it was the perfect choice. The hotel is slightly outside the attraction areas of city center but in the middle of peaceful, quiet neighborhood, It`s about 15-20 mins drive from camps bay, The hotel view is marvellous ocean, greenery and mountains that you can't get enough of.
