Wonderful service & location. Girls are doing a one of a kind job. And I’ll repeat the note I left in the book in my room- people warned me aboot the baboons stealing my backpack... but nobody warned me about the Bluegum stealing my heart!

Personalized service in a delightful guesthouse
We loved our hosts at Bluegum who were helpful and friendly. We met nice travelers there as well. The guesthouse has a lovely view of Cape Town and a real local feel. It is comfortable and well appointed. The pool has an amazing view. Breakfast is delicious! If you aren't too fond of impersonal hotels and like the idea of very personalized service and advise, you will love the Bluegum Guesthouse!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A nice guest house in a very good area. Rooms super clean i was in a single room which was small but i had no problem. Good location about 20mins walk down a hill to waterfront. Great views from the balcony with a nice pool and seating area. I would recommend this to anyone, only drawback it's on top of a very steep hill so walking up is difficult, taxis uber are cheap enough. Aissa was very kind and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast too. Thank you.
