wow!!! blue on blue is truly a hidden treasure! tucked away in beautiful st.james, blue on blue provides everything you desire for a honeymoon, family trip, or even a quick weekend getaway. with a short walk to muzenburg (a surfer's paradise), cute cafes and restaurants, and the homey environment, what's not to love about this place.
yes, the view from the rooms are one of a kind. and yes, the artwork and interior design provides guests a comfortable temporary home. i have stayed at many b&b's in various countries, and i must say, blue on blue definitely tops all of them!
but what makes this place truly special are the people! nadeem and yulitswa welcome each guests with open arms and make you feel right at home from the moment you enter through the gates. they make sure you're doing well and having a great time throughout your stay at blue on blue. in addition, they are always open to spend time with you and answer any questions you may have. they know SO much history about cape town/south africa. i read travel and history books on south africa prior to my trip but i learned most from getting to know nadeem and yulitswa and hearing their stories. they make blue on blue extra special.
i'm so thankful that i was able to stay at blue on blue during my short time in cape town. it made my experience SO much richer than i could have ever imagined. when i go back to cape town (and i will), i won't look into any other place than blue on blue. and this is the only place i'll recommend to friends and family.
ALSO, while we were there, my friends and i took morning jogs along the ocean and climbed a million flight of stairs (conveniently located right next to the b&b). so if you're on vacation and worried about being able to find a place to exercise, not to worry at all. :)
