Blue on blue is a cute little guesthouse in St. james with an awesome view over the sea. Waking up to this is just great. The staff is super friendly and helpfull. Breakfast is a little limited but it is good. The room was not so big and for me the bed was bit small ( i'm 1,96m ). We...

Sweet little homelike establishment tucked away in Saint James. Cobblestone street, ivy on the exterior walls. Charming. My upstairs room had delicious ocean views and I could see all the way along the Cape Point. Breakfast was made to order at a time scheduled on the previous evening by Yoli. Fresh bread, too. Perfect way to start the day. Nice...

Miss Marple would not feel out of place in St James. But in other ways it gives expression to a uniquely South African identity - a colourful cavalcade of history, social dynamics, and peoples arrayed against a backdrop of one of nature's most spectacular settings. And unobtrusively set in the midst of this, Blue-on-Blue provides its guests with access to...

Shout-out to Yoliswa, who runs the day-to-day at this lovely B&B. She is unfailingly friendly, helpful but not pushy, and cooks up a killer breakfast. The views, rooms, and location are perfect. The property has all sorts of comfy corners for chilling with a book while looking out at the Atlantic, which is only a few hundred steps from your...

Very sweet spot, intimate and homey feeling in a quiet neighborhood. Nice cold breakfast spread and delicious hot breakfasts by the lady of the house, Ms. Yoliswa. Top floor view from our room was outstanding, as was the birdwatching. Local eating spots were within 2 minutes driving and the city was a gorgeous drive not too far away, but far...

I escaped to this place after the insanity of the Cape Town Jazz Festival to enjoy some relaxation by the seaside. Beautiful location in a quiet residential area, but walking distance to the beach and lots of cafes and restaurants. Secure parking on the property. I loved the decor. It seemed that each room had something special by local artists...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Blue On Blue in early January 2014 for a dreamy four days. The B&B is exactly what we were looking for---clean, beautiful, relaxing, with lovely common areas where you can sit and read and look out at the ocean or enjoy a cup of tea. You'll find colorful art on the walls and books,...

Check in is after 2pm and as we had flown overnight we arrived before that only to find that the manageress had gone to do some shopping so there was a delay in being let in.

We loved staying at Blue on Blue. The B&B is very charming and our room was really nice with amazing view to the bay. Yoliswa, our hostess was very friendly and helpful since day one.
