This was our second visit to Karen's stunning guest house in Gordon's Bay. We were a party of 6 including 4 teenagers that stayed at the guesthouse for 11 nights. Again, Karen and her staff did not disappoint. All our needs were met without hesitation or question, the breakfasts were first class and included a different confectionary item each morning....

I spent 4 nights at Blue Horizon and had a very pleasant stay. Karen was the most helpful in organizing my excursions and taking care of me when I stayed in the Gordon's Bay area. The room was very clean and the view was amazing. Upon arrival she even made me a sandwich as I was hungry and tired after... More

We spent two nights here in a superior room. Although our room was tucked away to the side, it still gave us great views over False Bay; there was a small deck area to sit out. Parking is off-street; access by secure gate and steps. The room was very comfortable, well furnished and equipped, including a small mini-bar with soft... More

Great B&B situated high on the mountain side in Gordons Bay. The view from our room was amazing. Our host Karen was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts were delicious. Our room had a mini bar, tea/coffee making facilities, selected DSTV, a great shower and a balcony with the most amazing view. Free wi-fi was a... More

The guest house is neat and spotlessly clean. Unfortunately, some rooms were being worked on and workmen on site always makes things a bit uncomfortable. Breakfast is great with a range to choose from. Can definitely recommend the guest house if you wish to explore Gordon's Bay and surrounds.

We stayed for one night at Blue Horizon and Karen was the perfect host. The guesthouse was very well equipped, beds were very comfortable and the view from the balcony was spectacular. Karen was very accomodating and gave us lots of useful tips on local information and places to visit.
