“very comfortable and peaceful stay up in the Tree House”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Thank you dear Niki and Chris and extended family !! ---- for a wonderful 4 nights spent in your Tree House which we enjoyed so much.
Lezard Bleu is definatley to be recommended, especially the Tree House room ---- so close to town and yet so far away it seemed to us, looking onto the massive Palm trunks and into swaying palm leaves with the lights of Cape Town way below.
See you again, lots of love... Karen & Oleg

It will be hard to find a guesthouse in Capetown that is more welcoming, warmer and easygoing as Le Lezard Bleu. Chris and Nicki are awesome hosts, providing advice, a helping hand with reservations and a great breakfast. Location is good. It was best start imaginable for a short visit to the city.
The three dogs are part of the family, so if you don't like dogs...

After spending a few depressing nights in the Protea Island Club in Century City, I relocated to this little beauty in CT. And what a difference I got. You are made to feel super welcome. I stayed in the Tree House which has fantastic views over Cape Town. The breakfasts are delicious. The owners, a German couple, very friendly and interesting and helpful. On top it seems to be a perfect base to explore CT.

Tree House room is very spacious, perfect internet, nice bathroom. Absolutely nothing to complain about.

Will try and stay here again if I come back to CT.

Room Tip: Tree House is great. Have not seen the other rooms.

Stayed here for two nights - this is my second time to stay in Lezard Bleu. Chris and Niki made our stay really home from home (in fact better than home) - they could not be more helpful in every way.

Rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is amazing. You are really made to feel part of the family. Its great having breakfast with other visitors from whom you also learn much!! Very accessible to nearby restaurants and a nice walk or a taxi ride to other parts of Capetown.

Chris and Niki are very knowledgeable about the area and give great advice on things to do!! I was only sorry that we couldn't stay longer. Would definitely recommend Lezard Bleu and hope to be back again soon!!

It's very common to find a nine bed and breakfast in capetown for sure. However this place has a more then bed and breakfast. Yes it's not luxury but comfortable, very welcome. If you are looking a place for feel like you are welcome and sit around relaxed this is for you. Lovely and delicious breakfast very international guests, good wine. Clean rooms, lovely hosts:) you will like it definetely.

Room Tip: Their corner room is the biggest one at the end of the corridor on the entry level.

We stayed for 2 nights in the treehouse and based ourselves here to visit Cape Town. The views from the spacious tree house are just superb, looking over the city, to the harbor. We could see the cruise ships, Queen Mary, in dock. It is set back from the road and surprisingly peaceful, considering you are so close to the city. We just called a cab to go out at night and it was so cheap, not worth worrying about driving yourself and getting lost or looking for somewhere to park. I am saving the best until last, the breakfast, wonderful. I understand Chris was a chef, well he still is!!!! Cheeses, fruits, different cold meats, breads, and then you order poached eggs and out comes a complete meal, with stir fried veggies and the egg. It was also lovely to be able to eat with the whole family, and although we all spoke a different language it was as though you are part of the family. I would highly recommend staying here if you need to be close to the city or waterfront it's convenient and good value for Cape Town, and Chris and Nikki looked after us really well, great hosts.

We booked here as wew liked the idea of the'Tree House',which wasnt really such but part of a structure at the back of the garden albeit that the view was good and the accomodation OK although one of the less comfortable beds we found in SA.

What made our brief stay pleasurable was the fammily atmosphere and the welcoming atmosphere created by Chris and Nicola.We enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine with Nicola in the evening and learnt how the two of them and the family had ended up there.Chris is/was a chef and makes an excellent English Breakfast with a twist !

Dear John, dear Chris,

many thanks for your testimony and kind words. Really sorry you did not find the mattresses too
comfortable, we usually get good comments on it and the products are well known. But good to get some criticism too. That keeps you alert and is so important in any industry. Be happy you did not stay in a real tree house. With our South Easter blowing it would been a frightening experience.
Great you liked the atmosphere and the breakfast. Go well and we would love to have you back one day... All good wishes Chris and Niki
