Decided on a bed and breakfast this time, as we were looking for something relaxed and quiet, but didn't anticipate the gorgeous views that this charming spot featured from our top floor room. We wanted to explore the false bay side of the cape and this offered perfect opportunities. We took a water taxi one day to Simonstown, the train... More

This fun and cozy b and b is a charming and comfortable spot very near the warmer waters of Saint James beach. The interior is decorate with lots of artwork made by locals and bright colorful rugs and uphostery. The linens in the rooms are nicer than your average bleached hotel sheets. The exterior views of the bay and the... More

Normally not a b&b man but my wife prevailed upon me to stay at this little spot for its quaint vibe and socially conscious mission. Lesson learned: listen to wife. Very charming, arty feel (just as wife suggested). Low key surroundings of old, residential homes yet still within healthy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Kalk Bay. We... More

This nifty little spot located on the east side of the Cape point is a quaint little find. Small and intimate. Wonderfully appointed with artworks. Bright and funky furnishings, which still managing to stay in character with the old feel of the building. Fresh bread and delicious garlic butter mushrooms were included in the breakfast fare by Yoliswa, the capable... More

Quite a nice little spot on the hillside slope with seaview vantage points from nearly every room. Spent most of the days exploring the nearby coastal villages and beaches, several of which have tidal pools that we quite enjoyed (shark-free!). Kalk Bay is particularly nice for its little shops and plenty of eating establishments. Each day at the b&b started... More

We chose this as a place of escape during middle of a long trip, and spent lots of time looking out the window spotting whales in the harbor. There was a lot of fun and color in the space, from the sheets to the framed artwork to the rugs and curtains in the lounge. The hostess treated us well and... More

Blue on Blue provided a convenient place to stay with beautiful views, comfortable surroundings, and attentive service. The furnishings were colorful and fun. The breakfasts were plentiful. Easy walk to the restaurants and shops in Kalk Bay as well as to the beach.

I stayed in this place for my holiday treat... and I'll have to consider doing it again! Quaint, cute interior with character and charm. Yoliswa was a gracious and generous hostess who made me feel at home, fixing tasty breakfasts. I followed the recommendations in the room book for Kalk Bay restaurants and concurred with all of their good reviews.... More
