“Simply the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2010

The accommodation is 5* plus with the finest fixtures and fittings. Cleanliness is of the highest standard and the breakfast is fabulous, (especially since we taught Johan how to cook porridge to our liking!) Nothing is too much trouble for the proprietors and they will go the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable. We stayed for 15 nights and Johan located and booked a different restaurant each night for most of our stay and they were all good. The location gives easy access to the winelands and Stellenbosch within 10 minutes. Drive in the opposite direction and you are on a wonderful beach at Strand also in 10 minutes. Cape Town takes about 35 minutes with a good motorway link. If you like golf there are several courses close bye. The pool is only small and is only good for cooling off but this is a price worth paying. We have enjoyed holidays all over the world and this is one of the best places we have ever stayed.

During our stay at Blaauwheim, we were treated with respect. The owners go out of their way to make it a unforgetable experience.

The rooms are well decorated with everything you need, heated towel rails in the bath room, mini bar, satalite tv, plasma mounted tv in the bedroom and lounge.

You are surrounded by the mountain views and birdlife with upmarket shopping malls a few miles away.

Thanks for the proffesional service and making this a stay to remember!!!!!

I am a tour operator and even though I have been to this inumerous places, this is the second time I write about a place.

The place is immaculate, from the rooms, bathrooms, main house to the garden. Everything looks like new and well mantained.

Extremely luxurious and stunning good taste when it comes to decoration. Rooms are very spacious and there are flat screen TVs in both room and living area.

Kitchenette completely equipped. There is even a dishwasher and a conventional/microwave oven.

Besides the beautiful bathroom, there is also a guest loo, the attention to details is everywhere.

The owners are incredible, Johan and Jo Anne will go out of their way to please you, they were always very helpful and never said no as an answer.

Breakfast is definitely one of the best I have ever had. There is a bit of everything and again their attention to details is immaculate. And they do dinner on request, also one of the best meals I have ever had, ask for the lamb!

And the best of all is that the value for money is amazing!

I will definitely send a lot of customers their way cos I know as a fact that they will be happy.

I would recommend it for people wanting to stay well located in the Winelands or for people who want to be away from busy Cape Town, since it's not far and also for the ones who like to play golf, since there are million of golf courses in the area.
