I've stayed at 'Blue trea' for a week in august, I found it clean and comfortable, it really offers an international and an english breakfast (so eggs and bacon every morning), a laundry service, television and wi-fi. I think that what makes it different from others b&b is the big disponibility and kindness of Natasja who is always there to... More

My family and I have stayed twice at Blu Trea now and absolutely love it - it is literally home from home. Not only is it very tasteful and beautifullly decorated but it is so relaxing and peaceful with quick access to shops, restaurants, highways etc. Being animal lovers, we were delighted that Natasje kindly allowed us access to her...

This was the most beautiful, friendly, and clean place I could have imagined. I was travelling with my husband and 5 year old son, and everything about our week-long stay at Blu Trea was perfect. I can't recommend it highly enough. We were met at the airport, having arrived from Canada, and the owner picked us up and whisked us... More

I stayed at the Blu Trea for one week (I was in Jo'burg on academic business) and could not have asked for anything more. The room was fantastic--creatively decorated with a very comfortable bed, private bathroom, TV, microwave and fridge--and the property is simply beautiful. The breakfast is very tasty (you can get a hot breakfast if you want, but... More

Very peaceful, cosy and comfortable. All you need is there to make your stay homely. Nestled away from the buzz.Convenient stores and restaurants nearby. I really enjoyed my stay. My home away from home.

I stayed two nights at the Blu Trea Guest House. The room is really beautiful decorated - with lots of love. You absolutely fell at home. Everything you need is there - up to plates and cutlery if you want to order food to your room. Breakfast is really good - fresh fruit, good coffee and a nice talk. The... More

Great rooms, great food, and great host! It's a small place in a beautiful neighborhood, and for a great price. For those of you who run,there's a beautiful park less than a mile away. I really enjoyed my stay.

It is a quiet atmosphere, proximity to shopping store and excellent restaurants, Natasja and the staff took care of our ever needs and breakfast was very well prepared and they really know how to make you feel welcome. The rooms are spotless and comfortable, so come on in and discover this secret place.

Everywhere you look is decorated with character and taste. ( My favorite was a whimsical plaque saying, "Here, in 1823, nothing happened." Our room was lovely and the breakfast wonderful. Natasja is friendly and eager to be sure that everyone is content and comfortable.

We only had 1 night to stay at Blu Trea as we were going to the Bruce Springsteen concert at the FNB Arena, travelling in a cab organised by the host. Natasja works incredibly hard and has created a lovely environment with spotlessly clean rooms with lots of character and a great breakfast! I actually don't know how she does... More
