One would think that a return visit to a guest house, would be the proverbial "same old, same old". Yes, on yet another stay at Blaauwheim the familiar friendly hospitality as usual, the fantastic meals such as Johan's signature Blaauwheim breakfast on the stoep and the best beds in South Africa were there as expected, but Blaauwheim has managed to...

Spent 5 days at this outstanding Guest House - the owners Jo-Anne & Johan - no words to describe them. From the minute you arrive you are made to feel at home.Their hospitality and friendliness is something very rare. The apartment was a dream come true.

Spotless, Incredible personal attention, lush surroundings, wonderful breakfasts, spacious, modern rock-solid fittings. Way beyond expectations in every way. Our belated (25 years) honeymoon couldn't have been in a better place. We WILL be back.

Our stay at Blaauwheim has exceeded our expectations and more. Johan's and Joanne's hospitality was outstanding and their little champion Rafiki the Schnauzer brought us much joy during our stay. Johan's culinary skill was superb, especially his creative breakfast fruit plate. Joanne with her final touch to every meal brought the ambiance to life.

What a warm and welcoming 5* star Guest house. Johan and Joanne made us feel extremely comfortable in what can only be described as the perfect home from home. The luxury rooms, playful squirrels, beautiful garden and splash pool was just what we needed to relax. See you soon!

Dear Mandy Thank you for wonderful words coming from such a dab hand in the tourism industry. It is always enriching to speak to other players in this environment, to know what you are doing and thinking. Don't wait for the next Getaway show for an excuse to visit Blaauwheim again. Stay safe Johan and Jo-Anne

We had a such a wonderful time in your beautiful home. We received a warm welcome from the lovely couple. Amazing breakfast and wonderful rooms, great hospitality. They definitely went the extra mile to ensure that our time at the Blaauwheim Guest House was sublime. We also enjoyed playing with Rafiki 😊 The Nogoduka family
