Looking for a relaxing and quiet retreat - Head to Blue Jay - The room was stunning - clean and inviting. Your hosts are top notch. We had breakfast on one of our mornings and had a nice egg breakfast which was whatever we ordered from the cook. Security fantastic. The pool looked small but clean. We didn't use it.... More

Blue Jay Lodge is a very nice Guesthouse in Hazyview. The hosts are friendly and helpful and the rooms are comfortable and roomy. I would have no problem in recommending it to people visiting the area for a short or long stay.

Hosts were wonderful and made us feel at home. The rooms were wonderful and the grounds were even better. We especially enjoyed the sunbirds and other birds amid the lush greenery. Breakfasts were superb. It was a wonderful break from our days on safari.

We loved every bit of our stay at Blue Jay Lodge. Great base for day trips into Kruger and the panorama route. The rooms are spacious and have all the amenities you will ever need. Phil and Margi thanks so much for helping making the start of our holiday so memorable.

The Blue Jay is a gated B&B located in a secluded neighborhood about 3k from the Loveld/Blue Haze mall. I had no trouble finding the place using the directions supplied by the owners.

lovely calm place to stay. Perfect to start visits to Krüger Park or to drive to Blyde River Canyon. We were 3,5 weeks travelling through South Africa and Phil and Margi were our nicest hosts in this time. Very friendly, obliging with good tips and hints.
