Stayed here on our last night, prior to flying out of Cape Town. Well located for the airport, beach and wineries. The house stands high above Gordon's bay providing lovely views and a great sunset. Karen made us very welcome and gave us the low down on the best restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable with our own outdoor... More

We spent four nights with Karen and her team. Seldom does one come across an "exceptional host". Karen was friendly, most helpful with advice as well as an extremely keen eye for " attention to detail " in our room as well as serving an amazing breakfast! Highly recommended, will be planning a second visit.

Stayed with friends for just 1 night before going on a motorcycle tour the next day. Wish we could have stayed longer! Lovely host, very helpfully and accommodating. Had to have an early breakfast which was very good. Stunning setting and a lovely home. Can't wait to return.

I was so impressed on how immaculate the Blue Horizon Guest House is. The view is spectacular. Felt like it was home away from home. Homely breakfast and friendly smiles all the way. So accommodating in every way. I would recommend this guest house. close to amenities and Somerset Mall.

We were a family of 5, (2 adults and 3 children) that stayed at Karen's beautiful guest house over the New Year period for 11 days. We booked 2 rooms, the Deluxe suite and a superior room for the boys. From my first email to Karen to enquire about availability, through to our final goodbyes we had nothing but absolute... More

We needed accomodation for 6 (3 were teenage boys) on very short notice. My husband went onto Trip Advisor and read the reviews about Blue Horizon and so we decided to call, Karin was amazing from the first phone call to our last moment (she came to say good-bye at 6:30am!) She and her staff made every effort to make... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again. The room had every convenience we could ask for - literally a home away from home - a lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into the amenities provided (free Wi-Fi was such a bonus!!). Our room was very spacious and airy, and also had a small... More
