    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!

    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.

    Excellent choice!

    It was amazing. The managers were very helpful and friendly. The staff was very good. Spectacular views. Location is close to my points of interest and easily accessible by Uber. The breakfast on the terrace is a joy.

    Excellent views of the city and within easy reaching distance of the V&A. Fabulous hosts who helped us hire a care to visit Cape Point and advised us to visit the quaint seaside town of Kalk Bay. Highly recommend a stay here.

    Blue Gum...by gum!!! get your crampons on!!!

    Nice place, great view, but agony to access...one needed to be a mountain goat to ascend and descend the myriad steps down to the actual accommodation...shame because otherwise it was pretty nice.

    Lovely spacious apartment.

    Lovely well secured apartment up in the hills from Cape Town. Two bedrooms and a helpful owner. A garage so you don’t have to worry about your car. Superb views from your two balconies of Cape Town, Robben Island and the stadium. Waterfront a short drive away.

    J'ai beaucoup apprécié l'accueil et le sens du service de la propriétaire qui a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour le plus agréable possible. C'est grâce à elle que nous avons trouvé un laboratoire médical dans une banlieue résidentielle qui effectue des tests PCR Covid-19 sur les touristes et qui nous a délivré le test négatif indispensable pour rentrer en Europe. L'appartement jouit d'une vue exceptionnelle sur la mer et le V&A Waterfront et est très bien équipé (wifi, TV, lave-linge, lave-vaisselle, etc.).
