This is a little peace of heaven in a town that is good for the soul (not so good for the pocket, to much shopping). My son had a bike race in Clarens and we decided to make it a "Whole Family Getaway" so we booked the house for the weekend. Amazing view, so many little nooks and crannies in...

The first thing that strikes you with this house is the unassuming architecture and the serene garden! You immediately fall in love with the large wooden windows that provides an uninterrupted view of the Golden Gate National Park as well as the Clarens Golf Estate! It has such a character that doesn't overwhelm the senses but at the same time...

It's affordable and well located with a great view. Rooms well equipped and comfortable. Only disadvantage is self catering facilities are shared between the 4 rooms. But y would u want too with all the amazing resturants in the area.

On the outset all looked great and we decided to book. When we arrived we were met by the cleaning lady. Over the weekend that we stayed there the owner was not there once. We could not even arrange for breakfast. And had issues with getting keys.

We stayed in Periwinkle Blue over Christmas, taking the whole house for self-catering. Big and comforable and reasonably well equiped, it is close a short and pleasant walk into the centre of Clarens. The rooms inside and beautiful and well kept and very clean. Outside, the building is a little tired, but that doesn't matter. A good place to stay...

Very neat clean an nicely decorated rooms. Very caring kind and friendly management. Breakfast was Superb !! Clarens is one of my favorite towns to visit and will be back again soon. Periwinkle Blue is close to town (within walking distance), lovely restaurants, art galleries. Nice walk to the top of a koppie with a view over the town, Lovely.

I found Periwinkle Blue on 'Where to stay'. The fotos and discription seemed great and I contacted them to book our stay. The manager Sanmarie's communication was great. On arrival we were so pleasantly surprised because past experience has tought us that guest houses are seldom as great as they seem on the web. Periwinkle Blue is better! The rooms...

We had a super stay there for our 18th honeymoon (wedding anniversary getaway). Location, accommodation, service, and overall quality was all just terrific. I have no problem in recommending this to anyone.
