Johann & Joanne are the perfect hosts at this lovely guest house. It is ideally situated in Somerset West near the main wine route to Stellenbosch, with the beach, shopping and best restaurants all just a few kilometers away. The guest house is nicely furnished, with large and luxuriously decorated rooms, and extremely comfortable beds. The internet works well (often... More

How lovely it was to return to this wonderful Guest House in Somerset West. Johan and Jo-Anne gave us such a great welcome and we quickly relaxed after an overnight flight. Accommodation is superb, all arrangements are taken care of and breakfast is excellent with lots of chat with our hosts.

Being warmly welcomed by the Blaauw’s close to midnight and looking forward to slip in one of these very comfortable beds makes the 12 hour flight already half forgotten. And Johns fruit platter the following morning lets quickly forget the torture of the economy class seat as well. There are for sure many other very nice places to stay in... More

We are regular visitors to Blauuheim, and just as regularly rave about the place. This is more of the same, I'm afraid - sorry..... Blauuheim is quite small - 3 rooms only. Actually 2 very large, comfortable suites (small apartments) and a large double bedroom. All the accommodation is beautifully fitted and the level of comfort is very high, as... More

Johan and Jo-Anne are superb hosts of an amazingly beautiful house. Our private suite had a full bathroom as well as a separate guests’ toilette, all in honey coloured travertine and stunning bathroom fittings. The king-sized bed is draped in plush linen and silk duvet and pillows and hung with ample, thick sound and light absorbing curtains. Most outstanding are... More

My husband and I stayed at Blaauwheim on two separate occasions while on a golfing holiday in the Western Cape. We booked the Pinotage suite as we were travelling with golf clubs and it is on the bottom floor so much easier for carrying clubs from the car to the suite. The accommodation is excellent and furnished to a high... More

Dear SpanishFly It was lovely meeting you and really like welcoming you home when you arrived for the second stay at Blaauwheim. The lovely aromas wafting our way from Pinotage often tempted us to report for dinner and the tasters you saved were beyond delicious. And the laughs. And the anecdotes. Simply the conviviality. Your review made our day -... More

When I stayed at Blaauwheim for the first time in January last year I had found „my Somerset home“ far away from actual home in Germany (after many previous visits to Somerset). It was clear to me that this was the only place I would stay when visiting Somerset West in future. So I did in January this year, when... More

It is effortless to have you here and the leisurely way in which you enjoy breakfast rubs off on all the other guests. Enjoying simple things in a big way is usually indicative of a great mind.

A definite must for anyone on either business or leisure breaks. We stayed in the luxury unit for one night only and found it to be great in every way. It was clean, lots of attention to detail and the breakfast was fresh and very well presented. Johan and Joanne made us feel very welcome and we had great conversations.
