We opted for this space as it was right between the beach communities of Kalk Bay and Muizenburg, and right above the St. James tidal pool. The view from our King-bed suite was gorgeous. The bed was comfortable and the linens were high quality. The hostess Ms. Yoliswa provided warm, friendly service and a satisfying hot breakfast (she prepared my... More

My second visit to this little diamond of a spot (last year, same time). Thought I had already left a review, but if not, it is worth mentioning again. April is a spectacular time to enjoy autumn in the cape, and Blue on Blue is as good a place as you will find to enjoy the False bay area. Eyepopping... More

I stayed at this cute bnb as a treat before my impersonal budget hotel in the city. it provided just the homey feel that i wanted, with lots of personal touches. yoliswa immediately became a friend for her kindness, as well as her very fine hot breakfast. the artworks in the place are second to none for a guy with...

I'm a regular in Cape Town, but I haven't tried the False Bay side lately. This little B and B is perfect for checking out the "warm side" of the cape. Lovely linens, beautiful artwork and a warm hostess. You get a full view of the ocean every morning as the sun rises and turns passing clouds pink. I walked... More

Looking outside, this spot has mesmirising views of the sea and surf. Inside the walls are covered with funky contemporary and township artwork that really gives a Cape Town feel. Yoli, Nomfundo and Siphokazi were gracious hostesses who made us right at home. Breakfast was on time for our early departure, with a nice mix of cold and hot offerings.... More

This was the last guesthouse we stayed in on our trip and it was one of (if not the) best guesthouse. It is hidden away a little up the hill, but still in walking distance to the beach road, the train station, and a nice tidal pool. Being up on the hill, it has the nicest view you can imagine....

I visited the Cape not only for a relaxing stay, but for birdwatching. The Cape point tour that we organized with the guest house's recommended guide was quite wonderful, but I must even say that the birdwatching on site was quite nice, as I caught sight of several very nice local birds. We felt very at home in this establishment,... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Blue on Blue this past November for two nights though I wish it could have been longer. The location of the B&B was perfect as it was just up the hill from the train station and a cute beach with colorful Victorian bathing huts. It was also walking distance to Kalk Bay which... More

We last stayed here 5 years ago on our honeymoon and had wonderful memories of Blue on Blue. The beautiful docor has been maintained. As it was low-season, there were no other visitors and we had the whole place to ourselves. Loved the TV room and dining room. Breakfast by Yoliswa is yummy. On-site parking is available.

Decided on a bed and breakfast this time, as we were looking for something relaxed and quiet, but didn't anticipate the gorgeous views that this charming spot featured from our top floor room. We wanted to explore the false bay side of the cape and this offered perfect opportunities. We took a water taxi one day to Simonstown, the train... More
