Your host and hostess

Since February 1, 2017, we, Patrick Jans and Mieke Lemmens plus our 2 teenagers Emile and Fleur, are the proud owners of African Dreams Guesthouse.

In 2016 we decided to make a total career switch and to follow our dreams. After a period of pondering what we would like to do, we decided to emigrate to South Africa. During our "discovery trips" we ended up in Somerset West where we lost our heart to African Dreams Guesthouse. We found a school for our kids and in June 2017 we finally arrived.

After several months of painting and renewing, we reopened our doors on August 15, 2017. In 2018 and 2019 we embarked on larger renovations. In 2019 we built a new parking deck and renovated the pool area. The garden was newly landscaped with waterwise plants and artificial grass. African Dreams Guesthouse has become a home for the demanding traveler in a modern African interior with natural colours and a little retro wink. For the future we plan another 2 guest rooms and a putting green in the backyard.

Together with our staff - Sharita, who takes care of the housekeeping, and Herman Lindhout from ElizaYo,Foundation, who is maintaining our garden with his team - we strive to give our guests an unforgettable experience during their stay.

We look forward to welcoming you in our Guesthouse!
