Shout-out to Yoliswa, who runs the day-to-day at this lovely B&B. She is unfailingly friendly, helpful but not pushy, and cooks up a killer breakfast. The views, rooms, and location are perfect. The property has all sorts of comfy corners for chilling with a book while looking out at the Atlantic, which is only a few hundred steps from your... More

Very sweet spot, intimate and homey feeling in a quiet neighborhood. Nice cold breakfast spread and delicious hot breakfasts by the lady of the house, Ms. Yoliswa. Top floor view from our room was outstanding, as was the birdwatching. Local eating spots were within 2 minutes driving and the city was a gorgeous drive not too far away, but far... More

I escaped to this place after the insanity of the Cape Town Jazz Festival to enjoy some relaxation by the seaside. Beautiful location in a quiet residential area, but walking distance to the beach and lots of cafes and restaurants. Secure parking on the property. I loved the decor. It seemed that each room had something special by local artists... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Blue On Blue in early January 2014 for a dreamy four days. The B&B is exactly what we were looking for---clean, beautiful, relaxing, with lovely common areas where you can sit and read and look out at the ocean or enjoy a cup of tea. You'll find colorful art on the walls and books,... More

Check in is after 2pm and as we had flown overnight we arrived before that only to find that the manageress had gone to do some shopping so there was a delay in being let in. The place is immaculately clean and the rooms are quite adequate with en suite bathroom. There are 3 rooms and the best one is... More

We loved staying at Blue on Blue. The B&B is very charming and our room was really nice with amazing view to the bay. Yoliswa, our hostess was very friendly and helpful since day one. The breakfasts were great! St. James is a nice option to stay close to Cape Town (30min or less drive) with lots of options for... More

Also from the bathroom we had a directly view over the sea. The host is very fiendly. We can really reommend this place a... More

Some would say that the property had a period charm, others that the décor and facilities had seen much better days. We belong in the latter camp but it does depend on which bedroom you are in. We had the twin (Curries Corner) and were not aware when we booked that the bathroom and WC were not en-suite but across... More

Six of us reserved the entire house (three bedrooms) for a two night stay and we couldn’t have chosen a better place. The house is lovely, clean, comfortable and quiet. All the rooms were excellent with comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. We were within easy walking distance of St James restaurants and shops and a 5 minute walk from the... More

We stayed four nights at Blue on Blue last week and very much enjoyed the experience. We arrived rather late the first night but our hostess (who has a name that I just couldn't pronounce and now can't remember) was ready for our arrival. There are just 3 rooms in the B&B in total and we had booked the Cape... More
