Bluegum Hill Guesthouse is a warm and welcoming family double storey house, lovingly decorated to reflect the colours and culture of South Africa. Breathtaking panoramic views are seen from our open plan kitchen, dining room, top and bottom lounges, large balcony and pool deck, as well as our six well kept and characterful en-suite bedrooms.
We are situated on the top-most road of Upper Green Point, one of Cape Town’s most up-market residential areas and close to the City Centre and the world famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, yet it is remarkably quiet.
Our panoramic 180 degree views stretch across Table Bay to Robben Island, the 2010 Soccer World Cup Stadium, the V&A Waterfront with its working Harbour and the coastal suburb of Mouille Point with its’ Lighthouse and seaside promenade. See the waves breaking on the shoreline of Robben Island. Across the bay, lies Bloubergstrand with the Tygerberg Hills in the background.
Africa’s colourful history and warmth are reflected in our artistic décor, warm friendly atmosphere and good old-fashioned South African hospitality. Sleep in one of our six characterful, well equipped bedrooms and wake to a generous Full English alfresco breakfast. Let us help organise your days sightseeing trips and later enjoy sundowners around our sparkling salt-water pool.
