Dear Aissa and Mia, First of all many, many thanks for helping us with the passports!!! You were just wonderful! Everything was fine and please tell the taxidriver many thanks as well, Reinhard said that he was very, very nice when he gave him the passports! Apart from the chaos we caused I hope we were not too loud and peaceful guests. Your house is sooooo lovely and one feels really, really welcome everywhere around. Thank you once again and I am sure we will come back one of these days and tell all our friends about your lovely house and your hospitality. All the best, Renate

Dear Aissa and Inge Just to say, thank you for a perfect stay at the Blue Gum. You certainly got me off to a good start for my first visit to SA. I was so impressed with everything about the Blue Gum, not only the view but you as managers, the lovely staff, the breakfasts, cleanliness and so importantly, the atmosphere. Thank you all.

Liebe Aissa und Ughetta, der Aufenthalt in Euerem Guesthouse war ein super Abschluss unserer Tour durch SA. Die Lage Eures Hauses, die Freundlichkeit des Personals, das Frühstück auf der Terrasse bleibt uns in allerbester Erinnerung. Wir danken Euch nochmals für Euere Hilfe und Tips während unserer Tage in CT. Wir kommen 2013 wieder!! See you again Volker und Monika

We have been fortunate to have stayed in many holiday accommodations whilst in South Africa, by far, this has been the best! We thorough enjoyed our stay and will not hestiate in recommending it to our friends. All your staff are extremely happy, helpful and very pleasent. Breakfasts brilliant, views fantastic and the cherry on the cake was the bottle of champagne given to us to welcome in the New Year. Thank you for making our stay in Cape Town one to remember.

The highlight for us was definitely Cape Town - we loved Blue Gum Hill guest house - it was by far the nicest place we stayed - being really clean, comfy, relaxed and with lots of graet attention to detail. Aissa was lovely and really helpful - even packing us part of a picnic for a concert at Kirstenbosch. We would recommend this place to everyone looking to stay in CT - there were no negatives about our stay there.

The breakfast was perfect and the view your Guesthouse has is awesome. So sorry did not get to meet you Ughetta maybe next time... THANK YOU very much see you again John and Debbie Oakley

Dear Aissa and Ughetta ! Thank you for good service and your hospitality during our visit at Bluegum Hill.We specially remember that morning when Ughetta came down with coffe after our morningbath in the pool.Such attention is great.And of course the cake and gratulations on my bitrthday. We are save back home and are staying at our countryhouse some days for skiing.A big contrast from our time in Capetown and West Cape.As you can see we have a lot of snow. Hope to see you again next year and in that case I will make a reservatoin in good time. Take care! Margaret and Bo Dahlström.
