Alkies dream was a dream stay. Stylish, neat, modern and everything you need for a few days stay over. The host Alida and her husband Tinie are down to earth people with the comfort of their guests at heart. They walked the extra mile for us with kindness and care. They have a winning cottage in the best country atmosphere. We will for sure be back. Eryl and Hannetjie

Aalkies Dream is a superb stay-over for our regular business trips to the Cape.
Alida and Tienie went more than the extra mile to make sure that our smallest need is satisfied.
From the make-up mirror and the crisp bedding in the bedroom to all the treats in the kitchen.
The rooms are spacious and super clean and the surroundings are peaceful.
See you again with our next trip!

What an amazing experience at the Alkies dream. This beautiful establishment was indeed a dream and inspirational. Thank you Alida and Tienie for your warm welcome to your home. Your home was very immaculate and peaceful. We had everything that we needed and more (waking up to your scrumptious rusks:-) was more than a dream). I truly appreciated that you went far and beyond to provide us with an exceptional weekend gateway experience. I am without a doubt returning to the Alkie's dream and recommending it to my family and friends.
