Spacious, luxurious and friendly. Everything you could want from a B&B Johan & Jo-Anne makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive. I will definitely go back as soon as possible. Loved the breakfast especially the fresh fruit platter

Cannot find the quality and hospitality anywhere. Will do anything they can to make you feel at home or even as family. Enjoy good cuisines and peaceful surroundings of the beautiful garden and neighborhood. Will defiantly be back with my next trip.

Dear JJ Thanks for the review! Good to hear that South Africans are also returning home after having worked abroad.There is indeed something to say about real South African hospitality! If you add quality to it and the other attributes you mentioned, you have Blaauwheim! A return trip sounds so good. Regards Johan and Jo-Anne

For us to stay in Blaauwheim, it was fantastic, the location is great and easy to access. The room we stayed in was very clean, the bed comfortable, we woke up with the birds singing. The breakfast was excellent and nothing lacking. We love the couple's sympathy and we still share some experiences. We highly recommend the stay. Thank you...

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!
