We stayed with Jo-Anne and Johan with other friends. The suites are spacious and super clean. The suites are 'selfcatering' but luckely we asked for a breakfast for the 6 of us. That was super !! The swimmingpool is as it seems on the picture... small, but no reason to spoil the fun. Service is excellent and If you make... More

We loved our stay at Blaauwheim! We were married in the area - so the bridal party got ready at Blaauwheim and then we spent a few days after for the beginning of our honeymoon there - and it was fantastic! Best breakfasts ever! Joann and Johan are extremely sweet hosts and are willing to help with any and everything.... More

My wife and I spent an anniversary evening at Blaauwheim a couple of nights ago. We were wonderfully surprised by the beautifully appointed room which was also exceptionally spacious. A big lush garden surrounds the guest house. Service was friendly and prompt and our five star breakfast was top notch. Highly recommended!

Just to make sure our review gets published on this amazing property, we had to submit a review again. The rooms are out of this world, you feel like royalty from start to finish!! The attention to detail is above expectation. One of the few bathrooms with frameless glass showers and enough room in the suits to make any traveler... More

I arrived at Blaauwheim on a beautiful spring day. Not only was I welcomed by Johan and Jo-Anne, but the garden also welcomed me with vibrant colour. The familiarity of the surroundings were so comforting. It felt as if I had never been away. This time I stayed in Shiraz: stylish and elegant but - like all things Blaauwheim -... More

It was... More
