Best quality and service ever from arrival to departure. The room was spotless with views so picturesque it made me feel like staying longer. The staff are friendly and welcoming, especially Marilyn with her sweet and humble nature.

Really enjoy our stay at the Dreamhouse, still can't believe the breakfasts we received every morning. Amazing! You can see the owner is full time involved in this business, we saw her every morning serving and looking after the guest with her team. Can't wait to stay their again!

We had a lovely stay with Ivanka in Hout Bay. The guest house is extremely neat, clean and well run. The location very central and convenient with stunning views and lovely gardens. The breakfasts were marvellous and Ivanka’s personal attention to everything really makes this a fantastic place to stay!

This was a beautiful property built into the mountain side near Hout Bay. It is a convenient location for other site seeing options. It was quiet and peaceful. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. Our only concern was that there were a number of trip hazards due to the style and construction of the property. In addition, parking our car was a challenge.

Amazing stay at the Dreamhouse! The hosts were super friendly and it was a big plus that the hostess could speak German fluently. Beautiful view and wonderful breakfast. We did not have a rental car but the hosts helped us SO much. (I nonetheless recommend getting a rental car!) 10/10 recommend.

This guesthouse has beautifully appointed, large and clean guest rooms. We stayed 5 nights in the silver suite which has its own entrance and a small garden - ideal with a toddler. Breakfast is good and the views from the property are absolutely stunning. Ivanka and Louis are very welcoming hosts and, together with their team, add little touches here and there which are more than what you would normally expect in a guesthouse (e.g. turndown service or a farewell greeting). The service is a little slow at times and varies from day to day, but hey, TIA ;) The price performance ratio is excellent - we would come back anytime! Thank you Dreamhouse team!

The property is perfectly located, with a stunning view of the mountain and sea. The room was clean, warm and inviting. Breakfast was delicious with a wide selection of foods. I was very happy to receive a complementary drin on my last evening at the guest house.
