It is set in a large garden with a big pond, a lovely secluded deck for...

We stayed here for two nights on our Garden Route trip. Carla and Maarten, plus their dogs, were great hosts. They seem to have arrived here with a vision to create a minimalist surroundings but done in a very tasteful way. Each of the eight rooms was enormous with good wifi reception and a fridge in each. Thoughtful touches included...

We stayed here for two nights and the atmosphere was really relaxed, just what we needed. Upon arrival we had a friendly welcome by Maarten, the owner. Breakfast was out of the world including healthy options. Even when my wife forgot her blouse, the owners sent it to Capetown, where we stayed for the last part of our trip. Great...

My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend at bloomestate, and we could not have asked for better hosts! Carla and Maarten were attentive without being over bearing. The little personal touches and attention to detail made the entire weekend just that little bit more special - E.g. hot water bottles delivered to our room, kept the winter chill away....

We stayed at Bloomestate for four nights for my birthday and had a lovely stay. Carla and Marten are lovely hosts. They are attentive and accommodating. We asked to have breakfast later one morning after a massage at the spa next door and they were happy to do this. They were also happy to show us what we could do...
