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

I had the most relaxing two nights here, sleeping like an angel with the waves whispering in my ears. The house is colorful decorated and has an special arty vibe. Our room, the blue room had a super view. We were happy here and Yoli spoiled us with a delicious breakfast every day. Location is perfect if you like to... More

Lovely little hideaway with great vistas of the wild waters of the cape. You get a perfect eyefull of mountains, whales in the bay, shifting clouds and an earful of breaking waves on the beach below. Yoli is a kind hostess who aims to please. She cooks up a tasty breakfast, too. Nice linens. Artwork everywhere. A characterful establishment, to... More

Sweet little homelike establishment tucked away in Saint James. Cobblestone street, ivy on the exterior walls. Charming. My upstairs room had delicious ocean views and I could see all the way along the Cape Point. Breakfast was made to order at a time scheduled on the previous evening by Yoli. Fresh bread, too. Perfect way to start the day. Nice... More
