If you arrive late and wanna travel further down the garden route this house is definitely worth a stay. But you can also stay there if Somerset West/Hermanus and Stellenbosch is your place in mind. Karen and her team are wonderful. My tip: try the french toast with the African style in it! We both felt in love and ordered...

Karen and staff are amazing. Facilities are great and the view is absolutely stunning. Breakfast spread is top notch. Rooms are immaculate, we hardly wanted to leave the room. We wished we could've stayed longer

We needed a place near the Cape Town Int. airport heading to the coast, Gordons Bay was the perfect distance (1/2-1 hour depending on traffic). The guest house is up high on a hill overlooking the bay. Our hostess, Karen, was super nice and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Highly recommended. Only caution for those with problems...

Very nice guest house with an excellent view. We had a very nice stay (one week). Service and rooms are very good. The service for the room was very good, as well. Gordon's bay is a very suitable starting point for the whole cape region (Cape town is close and Stellenbosch is also very nearby). All in all we can...

Lovely guesthouse with a pleasant family suite with 2 rooms ideal for a family of 4. Breakfasts were fantastic with freshly cooked eggs and good bacon. Only downside is it is too far up a hill to walk back from the beach or restaurants, but with a car this is only a small problem.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. & our breakfasts! You're quite right, the stroll down to the beach can be lovely, but the walk back could prove to be a bit much for most. A car is recommended when you stay at Blue Horizon, & that way you get to explore and see so much more of...

This was our second visit to Karen's stunning guest house in Gordon's Bay. We were a party of 6 including 4 teenagers that stayed at the guesthouse for 11 nights. Again, Karen and her staff did not disappoint. All our needs were met without hesitation or question, the breakfasts were first class and included a different confectionary item each morning....

I spent 4 nights at Blue Horizon and had a very pleasant stay. Karen was the most helpful in organizing my excursions and taking care of me when I stayed in the Gordon's Bay area.

We spent two nights here in a superior room. Although our room was tucked away to the side, it still gave us great views over False Bay; there was a small deck area to sit out. Parking is off-street; access by secure gate and steps. The room was very comfortable, well furnished and equipped, including a small mini-bar with soft...
