What a wonderful surprise stopover - unlike most B& B's this made us feel like Kings. The extra lengths they went to, to accommodate us for our very, very early morning start was amazing - Thanks for the efforts Johan and Joanne.

My colleague and I spent 6 nights at this wonderful guest house. The owners are very nice and provide good service. We could borrow guidebooks, got nice tips on sights nearby and had many pleasant conversations with Jo-Ann and Johan. Last but not least, I must mention the wonderful breakfasts with lovely, fresh fruit and everything else you could wish...

First class! Johan and Jo-Anne were perfect hosts - friendly, service-orientated, accommodating without being intrusive. Luxurious accommodation, attention to detail and value for money. Unreservedly recommended - all in all a fantastic experience. Will definitely return.

I enjoyed my stay at Blaauwheim very much; it is a beautiful peaceful setting and very convenient to business in the area. They took great care of me, and the rooms/suites are exceptionally well appointed hope to return for another visit.

Earlier this year we stayed at Blaauwheim Guest House again, having stayed there last year. It is definitely the best guest house we have ever stayed in and were welcomed back by Johan and Jo-Anne so warmly, like family! The suites are superb, with such attention to detail and everything of the highest quality. The breakfasts are something to see...

On arrival we were met and warmly greeted by the owners Johan and Jo-Anne Blaauw and shown to our room. We booked the Shiraz room which had an outdoor braai / BBQ area and dining area which, if staying for a longer period, would have been wonderful! The room was well appointed with all the amenities you might require. The...

What can I say this time around? We like Blaauwheim, and I keep saying so in review after review. Last review, I mentioned the Cat who runs the place. Don’t, whatever you do, take it’s chair at breakfast! You have been warned! This year the chameleons ruled our days, and hours were spent peering into the bushes for the elusive...
