We had a fabulous stay at African Dream House. This B&B is super clean, perfect located and safe. The Breakfast is very nice and freshly made, especially the fruit salad was very delicious. You can take breakfast at the balcony and enjoy a spectacular view above camps bay and the twelve apostles.
We stayed in the Lions Room with a fantastic view about the bay and towards Lions head. The Room was very big with a small fully equipped and functioning kitchenette and a refrigerator with fair prices, which is very rare to find usually. Fanni and his wife are the most carrying hosts we have ever experienced. They have great local recommendations, which we really enjoyed. We definitely locked Capetown and especially these two hosts to our hearts. We will come back for sure.

We started our two weeks in South Africa at African Dreams Guest House (or African Vibes as it was also known). A beautiful little hotel will the most helpful hosts ever. Sofia couldn't have done more to make our stay better. Nothing was too much. Our circumstances meant we had a change of room after two days so we sampled the downstairs room (poolside) and the upstairs balcony room. Both were lovely rooms although the balcony room (The Lion's Den) was fantastic with terrific views across the bay and some fantastic sunsets. Breakfast was good and served, when the weather allowed outside on the middle deck. Rooms were clean and roomy and very comfortable. The guest house is a 25 minute walk down to Camps Bay and ZAR100 trip back at night in a cab. Closest restaurant is the Hussar Grill at 20 mins walk away (excellent).

Highly recommended!

Nothing but good words for this place, from the coziness to the incredible views, I can only recommend this accommodation.
The staff is really friendly and helping, they do organize also airport transfers and can help you with general information. Rooms are beautiful designed with a handmade wooden touch and all the amenities you can need. The house is located in a nice and safe area, beautiful to walk downhill to the beach and enjoy the views.
Sunsets at the place are special, with the mountain behind and ocean in front of the house.

Spacious room with large bed on pallets. The kitchenette and the door to the bathroom are behind large sliding mirror panels. This makes the kitchen difficult to reach. The shower has an awkwardly high step. Sufficient sockets for European plugs, also next to the bed. The room overlooks the spacious swimming pool through a large glass wall with sliding door. There are many different types of chairs and beanbags around the pool, which makes it look quite messy. There is only a narrow wardrobe with 3 shelves, but no space to hang clothes. When we arrived the air conditioning and TV did not work, but that was fixed within 2 hours.

For a luxury view in an incredible location, African Vibes is a terrific alternative to a hotel or a guesthouse. It’s a multi level property with clean, safe rooms, comfortable temperature, a pool, views for days and an in-house host , Ali, who was happy to pick us up after we walked all the way down the hill to the fabulous restaurants. Mpoza was the kindest hostess too.
We only got to stay for one night, but if we had more time, I would stay a few days. We loved walking up the hill and seeing closer up views of the mountains as well.
The bathroom was clean and private. Breakfast was not included, but we had good coffee, and again, for the price, we felt very satisfied.

Thank you for a great visit!

On arriving we had a lovely warm welcome from Fanie and Jeanette. We stayed in the Lions Den room, a beautiful room with amazing views. We were located in Camps Bay, a lovely place, and ideally situated for trips to Cape Town, we got Ubers to and from Cape Town because it was quick, easy and reasonble. I recommend African Dreams, for it's location, comfort, warm welcome and friendly hosts. We hope to visit again soon!

The place is run down. Garden should be seen to, overgrown and plastic bottles lying around. Pool paving overgrown with weeds.
Furnishings poor and extremely uncomfortable (chairs so hard you cannot sit on them for longer than 5 minutes).
Breakfast is a disaster, no cutlery, crockery available, poor quality with no juice or coffee available, had to wait ages for it to come from the kitchen.
Will definitely not return again and will not recommend to anyone.

Wow. What a beautiful stay. We only had a night here prior to heading in to Central Cape Town but we were fortunate enough to stay in The Lions Den room. One of the best balcony views you could ask for (which is also replicated underneath and available to all guests in the chill area). Stunning views across Camps Bay and of Lions Head. Sunset here doesn’t get much better! Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Uber was easy enough in and out of the airport/central. Book if you are in the area you won’t regret!
