Although "service" at places is of utmost importance the aura of "pleasantly at ease", is much more satisfying. The squirrels amongst fallen autumn leaves, the African sun on the patio, the smell of hot freshly ground coffee ... I could enjoy that recently with my wife at Blaauwheim ... The Land Lord and Lady, Johan and Jo Ann, were there... More

Luxury guesthouse run by a delightful couple. The suite, being the size of an apartment, was well equipped, spotless and tastefully decorated. The bed extremely comfortable. The breakfast plentiful and delicious. Highly recommend.

The owners were very welcoming and made sure I was comfortable at all times. My stay was short with just one night but memorable, excellent breakfast and coffee thank you! The location is lovely, a little outside of the bussle of the main roads making it a quiet escape after a long day.

Everything was perfect, huge suite with stunning panoramic terrace, comfortable bed, quiet, spotlessly clean, bathroom with shower and bathtub, all modern amenities, fully equipped kitchen, Nespresso coffee machine. In the morning you are spoils with delicious breakfasts while your wonderful hosts have a chat with you! A home away from home! Would go back anytime!

Very lovely and welcoming hosts. I recommend this place to anyone visiting cape town. The suites are very beautiful and really quiet to sleep, equipped with the most comfortable beds. The guest house is very well run, very safe & secure and of a very high standard.

I absolutely loved my stay here and will only stay here when visiting the Cape in future. Ultimate luxury, with the most comfortable beds, full bathrooms and everything you need.

We were needing to travel to the area for a business trip and were looking for a B&B where it would be safe, clean, convenient and easy to get to from the highway.

I loved our 4 day stay at Blaauwheim. Every morning Johan's and Jo-Ann's sweet dog Rafiggi, came to fetch me for breakfast. And every morning Johan had made a beautiful and delicious fruit platter for each of us, as a starter for breakfast. Also I enjoyed the pool, which I used every afternoon. I also made friends with a tiny... More

We frequently visit the wine lands and have found our dream hideaway at this impeccably run guest house which we now call home. We visited Johan and Jo-Anne twice last year and discovered true luxury and comfort in absolutely everything. They are both outstanding hosts in an unassuming way that makes for an out of this world experience. The Pinotage... More
