Blue On Blue Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 7 St. James B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 March 2015

Normally not a b&b man but my wife prevailed upon me to stay at this little spot for its quaint vibe and socially conscious mission. Lesson learned: listen to wife. Very charming, arty feel (just as wife suggested). Low key surroundings of old, residential homes yet still within healthy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Kalk Bay. We enjoyed the kindness and cooking of the hostess, Miss Yoliswa. Took a trip to the township project that is affiliated and were quite impressed.

Room Tip: I recommend the master suite for being wonderfully spacious and airy.

This nifty little spot located on the east side of the Cape point is a quaint little find. Small and intimate. Wonderfully appointed with artworks. Bright and funky furnishings, which still managing to stay in character with the old feel of the building. Fresh bread and delicious garlic butter mushrooms were included in the breakfast fare by Yoliswa, the capable hostess. Wonderful views. For a constitutional I recommend ascending to the top of the mountainside stairway to get a full view of the entire bay. Breathtaking!

Quite a nice little spot on the hillside slope with seaview vantage points from nearly every room. Spent most of the days exploring the nearby coastal villages and beaches, several of which have tidal pools that we quite enjoyed (shark-free!). Kalk Bay is particularly nice for its little shops and plenty of eating establishments. Each day at the b&b started with satisfying hot breakfast prepared by the lady of the house, who is a sweet soul. Splendid collection of books and artwork.

We chose this as a place of escape during middle of a long trip, and spent lots of time looking out the window spotting whales in the harbor. There was a lot of fun and color in the space, from the sheets to the framed artwork to the rugs and curtains in the lounge. The hostess treated us well and fixed hot breakfasts. Sundowns were particularly beautiful as the light reflected orange on the clouds. Took lots of walks along the nearby coastal path and dine out somewhere different every night.

Room Tip: Wifi was fine... The tiny cost is for a donation toward a nonprofit education project that the estab...

Blue on Blue provided a convenient place to stay with beautiful views, comfortable surroundings, and attentive service. The furnishings were colorful and fun. The breakfasts were plentiful. Easy walk to the restaurants and shops in Kalk Bay as well as to the beach.
