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

We spent two nights at Blue on Blue and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect, close to everything without being in the city. Our bedroom view was of False Bay, and we awoke to the sounds and sights of whales on our second morning there. Amazing! Our breakfasts were excellent, and the B & B spotless. We arranged to... More

Everything is written on the other revies and no need to descrive more this excellent guesthouse. I hope the owner will continue with the same service. Sitting on my desk in the office I still remember the sweet sensation of getting up with the waves of the ocean.

This cozy spot was recommended by friends and for once I listened to advice. Thanks, Trisha! beautiful views looking over false bay and we happened to catch the very first whales of the season looking out of our bedroom window! this is another gem that is away from the rush of the city but still within easy driving of all...
