About Blue Crane Guest House
Set at the foot of the majestic Helderberg and against the rugged Hottentots Holland Mountains, the Blue Crane Guest House nestles in the heart of Parel Vallei, a safe and up market suburb of Somerset West, only a 40 minute drive from Cape Town.
At the Blue Crane Guest House, a short garden path leads guests from the secure off street parking through a private entrance onto a covered terrace. Here visitors are greeted with a welcoming view of the sparkling main pool and heated 8-seater cocktail pool, set in the lush garden with the Helderberg Mountain completing the background, a picture epitomising extreme tranquillity and an unsurpassed privacy.
With the historic blue-gum trees towering throughout, the 2200 square meter property is blessed with added protection and shelter against the prevailing summer winds, creating a calm and relaxed atmosphere around the furnished pool deck, the perfect venue to enjoy some of the best wines the Cape has on offer.
