A warm welcome was received on a very cold day upon arrival. The hosts were incredibly friendly and the rooms were immaculate, spacious and luxurious. I was very impressed with the Nespresso coffee machine and pods in my room. Breakfast was a beautiful and tasty variety of hot and cold options, made to order and served by the owners themselves. A beautiful guest house, really worthy of the five star rating!

Room Tip: Descriptions on website very accurate.

Dear Germa

Someone has to brighten up the cold days in the Cape and I am delighted if we managed to do just that. You also brightened our day with your positive review. Reviews from corporate guests are very special because you took time from a busy schedule to do it. Thanks so much. See you next time with more of our Blaauwheim hospitality!

Dear Linda

You came here on such a tight and stressful schedule but if you felt at home, we certainly succeeded. Our "little paradise" has to provide a homely base to every guest who comes here. Johan loves to cook but enjoys it even more when it is appreciated.

Thanks for expressing your appreciation in a review - and remember the breakfast promise!

I once again would like to commend Johan and Jo-Anne for their unlimited hospitality. I am a frequent guest and not once was I disappointed. It is especially now, during winter time, that I am reminded of the sheer luxury that “my” room, Shiraz, holds for me. What a pleasure to come home after work to a beautiful and cosy room. To warm the body - the room is fitted with hot towel racks and under floor heating in the bathroom, an electric blanket and crisp linen on a huge bed. For inner warmth – it has Muskadel and a charming little red coffee machine. To warm the soul – there are always friendly faces and happy chats! Thank you for looking after me when I am away from home. I know, from experience, that every time somebody is lucky enough to cross your threshold, your service will always be above and beyond anything that anyone could possibly ask for.

Dear Karen

Thanks for the new review. You are THE authority on Blaauwheim as no-one has crossed our threshold as many times as you have. No wonder we often refer to Shiraz as "Karen's room"...

Guests deserve certain things of which hospitality certainly is #1. Comfort after days as hectic as yours, comes standard at Blaauwheim. Unfortunately I cannot get George Clooney to get you your next Veluto and you'll have to use the red machine yourself! Pity...

You certainly are no longer only a guest: you are part of the family and we look forward to those special e-mails announcing your next visit. Long may they continue to come!

I was there in March 2014 on a business trip but Johan and Jo ann made me feel at home and pampered me with delicious breakfasts every morning. The guesthouse is in a beautiful garden, rooms are spacious and equipped for self catering too.

Dear Linda

Your have such a busy life and still found time to write a review! Thanks a lot!

We are glad that you felt at home even on a business trip. And yes, some guests enjoy Johan's special breakfasts but use the self catering facilities for all other meals and thus have the best of both worlds!

Here's to future business and welcoming you again!

Thank you Johan, Jo-Anne and Richard for an amazing stay at Blaauwheim. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. Your hospitality and friendship, attention to detail, lovely garden and wonderful breakfast left nothing more to be desired. Your accommodation is superbly furnished with every detail completely attended to. You will definitely see us again at your 10 star guest house when we visit our friends in Helderberg Village.

Dear Merilyn

Wow! Thanks for a lovely review and thanks for acknowledging Richard as well. It more than made his day to see his name on TripAdvisor again. He is such an integral part of Blaauwheim, quietly getting on with work behind the scenes. We are as lucky to have him as we are to have guests like you noticing him!

It was a pleasure hosting you after what could have been a disastrous week end... In the end we had so much fun. Appreciative guests like you and Ernie make us realize why we do this.

Until next time!
