“Fantastic Attention to Detail! Awesome experience!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

My wife and I flew in from Colorado and took a trip up the Garden Route during the second week of January. There is a reason why this impeccably run and decorated Bed and Breakfast is continually rated as a five star destination – everything was perfect but more than that, the hospitality by Johan and Jo-Anne was absolutely genuine. They accommodated our peculiarities and the incredible breakfasts we had on theiri veranda and they were quick to give us advice on where to go, how to drive there, what to do and what not to do.

Dear Dr Rory

It was fun, it was interesting and it was awesome having you at Blaauwheim. We really appreciate your valuable time used for this review and the photo. What you are doing in your field, boggles the mind and therefore taking care of your "peculiarities" is the least we can do. Taking care of people is what we do best! Keep up the good work.

We have had such lovely days at Blauuwheim Guest house...we are looking forward to our next trip to South Africa and Somerset West and of course to our visit at Blaauwheim to meet Johan and Jo-Anne. We never have had such a excellent breakfast --and the famous fruit platter from Johan - we are missing it really...and all the informations we got... super
The location is very nice, the garden, the suites are luxury like in a 5 Star Hotel...I think better...
and then we got such a friendly welcome and services and also a lot of helpfull and really good tips ....thanks for your great hospitalityl

Room Tip: If you will stay here a few days the luxury suites Pinotage or Chardonnay are really good we visite...

Dear Ulma

"like coming home"... I like that! Thank you for being such wonderful guests and for taking time to write this lovely review. The additional stone among those surrounding the fountain is a new one to us but certainly a tangible reminder of your stay. Believe me: there is space for many more stones. As for the flop proof bread recipe... Come home soon!

Once again, Blaauheim delivered more than than promised: from the best beds in Africa to a breakfast platters almost too beautiful to eat! From crispy white bedding to a lovely lush garden with a view on Helderberg.

Thank you, Johan and Jo-anne, we will be back.

Dear Maryna

Thanks for the review! Funny that you should say "Best beds in Africa" - maybe that is what put us at #09/25 in South Africa but also #19/25 in AFRICA this time around! Tired guests deserve that and hungry travellers need food as delicious as it is beautiful.It is always a pleasure to have you and your camera around.

Thank you Mishkah at the Tourist Info office who said we wouldn't be disappointed. That was an understatement! Being anxious to settle in Capetown for the last week of our vacation, we decided to splurge on a five star accomodation and were so pleased that we stayed three nights! Johan and Jo-Anne could not have been more welcoming and professional and the suites are equally beautiful and comfortable. This guesthouse is truly perfect as is their food and gardens! It was one highlight of our three and a half week vacation in South Africa that we can't stop talking about.

Room Tip: The one room suite is very! beautiful and adequate for stays less than a week

Loved the review! We are also glad that you discovered Blaauwheim! We enjoyed the talks and the many laughs! "Are you serious?" now has more meaning to us than before and brings a grin and a memory every time either of us uses the expression. Come back soon!

What can you feedback if more than 140 guests have praised this extraordinary Guest House? Just confirm that they are right. Jo-Anne and Johan, both are passionate of what they do and they walk the extra-mile every day. Thanks for a wonderful start into our holidays!

Room Tip: The smaller Shiraz room is good enough if you use this Guest House only as a base for excursions.
