Blaauwheim is by far the best guesthouse we have ever stayed at. The atmosphere is relaxed and the garden is tranquil and beautiful. Johan and Jo-Anne are such lovely people and the place is spotless. Nothing is too much trouble for this friendly couple. We spent our last night of vacation here and we wished we could have spent more!... More

Blaauwheim is the ideal venue for a business trip to the Boland/Cape Town environment. The hospitality makes it a home from home, the rooms are incredible, and the atmosphere is tranquil and relaxing. Another great plus for a business trip is that it is situated less than 30 minutes from the airport. It has some of the best wine farms... More

Cape Town was recently voted the world no 1 tourist destiny! Many reasons for that but definately hospitality sevices and vibe, are two. Blaauwheim must have contributed to that because of it's atmosphere and hospitability. Surely the land- lord and lady is responsible but the place "talks" to you and so does Richard "my man", Kylie-dog, and an awesome cat.... More

We stayed at Blaauwheim in June and really enjoyed our stay. Johan and Jo-Anne are lovely people, and really made our stay pleasant. We have stayed at several guest houses before, but Blaauwheim offered something different. The setting is beautiful, and there is such a relaxed athmosphere there it makes you enjoy the beauty of the Helderberg region even more.... More

We had a lovely stay at Blaauwheim. Johan and Jo-Anne made us feel as we knew each other a long time ... The bed are like a cloud, the best ever. The breakfast in the morning was excellent, especially the fruit that looked like a picture on a canvas. The warm floor in the bathroom was a blessing. Just a... More

Im Laufe der letzten 5 Jahre haben wir in SA wohl 80 bis 100 verschiedene Dächer über dem Kopf gehabt, aber Blaauwheim erhält die Goldmadaille (gäbe es Platin ,dann ...). Man merkt, dass bei jedem Detail (Bidet im Bad, Zeitungsständer im Gästeklo, Adapter wo sie gebraucht werden, Kleiderhaken, stummer Buttler, Fernseher auch im Schlafzimmer, deutsche Sender -nur ARD/ZDF- , Geschirrspüler)...

Forget all what you know about Guesthouses, Blaauwheim is much more - it is a HEIM, your HOME! The minute I arrived I was greeted by the pleasant Jo-Anne and Johan who showed me the lovely intimate grounds letting me know all that was available for me to use and enjoy with! I immediately felt like at HOME. The large... More

We stayed at Blaauwheim Guesthouse for 5 nights in January 2011 and had a great time there. The guesthouse is very conveniently located just off the road from Somerset West to Stellenbosch which makes travelling to both destinations very easy and quick. The guesthouse is set amidst an absolutely beautiful garden and the owners Johan and Jo-Anne are the most... More
