We returned here after six years and thoroughly enjoyed our second visit. Anton's hospitality and the attention to detail by all the staff was excellent. We certainly look forward to coming back in the future.

We went for 2 days with our young kids and only wish we could have stayed for longer. Beautiful surroundings, lovely food, relaxed atmosphere and loads of space and fun things to do for the kids - could have stayed for a week. Lovely beaches nearby wig huge expanses of golden sand and great waves for bodyboarding. Nice local towns... More

Blue gum is lovely: an English country style lodge (including delicious complimentary high tea with scones and biscuits served mid afternoon!), set on the slopes of the mountains behind Stanford (one of the quaintest villages in South Africa!). Very large cozy room, a 10m long pool under the shades of the rustling trees, really nice food (set menu) in the... More

Dear Beat and Byron Thank you for the lovely, kind words - i am glad we were able to provide a relaxing stay for you both, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life (if only for 2 days) Looking forward to welcoming you back! Anton More

In March 2015, we were married at Blue Gum Country Estate. We had been looking for the perfect venue - something private, beautiful, with a family atmosphere and a luxurious feel. On our first visit to Blue Gum, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding! Needless to say Anton, Tarryn and their amazing staff pulled out all... More

Great treat for the whole family, managed by a truely motivated team. Even thought not exactly close to the sea side and some minutes drive from the whales and other attractions, this B&B offers a full breath of relax for the family (the 3.5 year old boy enjoying himself in a well equiped outdoor playground). Worth the drive, promised!

This is an amazing place. One of our favorite places during our holiday. Everybody makes us feel so welcome. And the hospitality was even better than we expected. It is about half an hour from Hermanus and a nice and quiet place. Our daughter (1,5 years old) was also very happy to stay on this place.

A great kid-friendly hotel in a rural location (down a fairly long dirt track which got a little slippy in the rain) - we stayed with our 20 month old and really liked it - adjoining room for our daughter for no additional cost - lots of toys and play area outside with sandpit/swing/see saw etc - kids meals early...

Very friendly staff, beautiful and quiet environment, great comfort, truly exceptional dinners! We stayed here for 2 nights with a baby. The room was good, nice terrace with small playground. It is a good stay when you want to stay at the whale coast but want to keep distance to the busy en touristy hermanus.
