We had a great stay here, would definitely recommend. The two sisters are delightful and made Martin and myself very welcome and comfortable. If we come to Cape Town again will stay again. Very clean, all staff were very personable and helpful. Thanks for a great stay.

Stayed in the penthouse, during a weekend away from a Pretoria work trip. The 180' view was spectacular and the Parenti sisters that managed the guesthouse was extremely helpful with making tourist arrangements. Only negative was that I could not walk to nearby shops or restaurants, so dining required some planning. Because my stay in Capetown was short, I tried... More

We have free unlimited WiFi at the guesthouse but sadly the signal is not strong at the penthouse. We are looking at some other options to sort this... More

Bluegum Hills guesthouse with a most scenic view over Cape Town is a very charming guesthouse with excellent services. The rooms are nicely equipped, the breakfast comes with a broad variety, the personnell is always friendly and helpful. The Parenti sisters (onbers) are supporting whereever they can and create the feeling "coming home".

Can't say enough about these thoughtful, warm, ladies and their guesthouse. Wonderful quiet neighborhood in Greenpoint area with a lovely pool overlooking the bay. Both Ugetta and Aissa were so helpful with trip planning, organization and even getting a doctor for my husband to come to the house.

Very nice accomodation, from the deck fantastic view over cape town, excellent breakfast, owners (sisters) were very friendly. Rooms are little bit small. You need a car or a taxi for going to town. Guesthouse is secure.
