This was the most beautiful and comfortable place that I have ever been to. I am a person with disabilities and traveling requires comfort as a priority for me. Blue on Blue makes your stay as comfortable as any large five star hotel in the city. Blue on Blue is much better, because it's your home with all the home...

I just returned from my stay at Blue on Blue and am still dreaming of the gorgeous views! I stayed in the Cape View room and looked out over a beautiful blue ocean and the colorful row of brightly painted beach huts. The large house is bright and clean and filled with amazing art all by local artists. The location...

The Blue on Blue is the perfect combination of contempory art mixed with a historic flare. The accomodations were very comfortable and felt a lot like home. The staff there were friendly and warm and very nice to chat with. They had wonderful suggestions for places to visit and it was almost too easy to make arrangements for tours. Nadeem...

I recently stayed at Blue on Blue for a night after choosing it at random from a website on St James B & Bs. I loved the simplicity and lack of pretention - what needed to work worked well and the furniture and fittings were very tastefully chosen. The use of local craft was lovely. Nadeem, the manager,was most helpful...

I returned to Blue On Blue for the second time... After staying at Mount Nelson to conduct my city business, I escaped to the False Bay coast for my beachside relaxation -- still near the city, but feeling a world away. There is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves. Centrally located, it was ideal because I...

I chose Blue and Blue for its proximity to the beach and location centralized between the Cape Point, Winelands and City Center. I was not disappointed by the service...if you have read other tripadvisor accounts (which brought me here), you will find that everyone writes about Nadeem, the outstanding host. But what I learned is that in addition to his...

It was our first time in South Africa. We stayed at Blue on Blue for four nights of the entire eight nights of our trip. Nadeem is a gem! Just ask him any question about Cape Town or South Africa for that matter, he is amazingly knowledgeable and helpful. We stayed at the largest room in the B&B and we...

We chose Blue on Blue because of the Trip Advisor reviews indicating that the manager, Nadeem, was very special. We were not disappointed. Nadeem was incredibly attentive and did everything in his power to make us feel comfortable and pampered. The view from our room was spectacular and we were able to see whales throughout the day. Breakfast was delicious...
