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

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

Miss Marple would not feel out of place in St James. But in other ways it gives expression to a uniquely South African identity - a colourful cavalcade of history, social dynamics, and peoples arrayed against a backdrop of one of nature's most spectacular settings. And unobtrusively set in the midst of this, Blue-on-Blue provides its guests with access to... More
