We have a 3yr old and 1yr old and we thought this was the most child-friendly place we've stayed in, in South Africa: great pool, sandpit, play area, very accommodating for early kids meal times, exceptionally friendly staff. The setting is truly stunning, right on the edge of where the granite mountains meet the rolling farmland. We wish we'd stayed longer.

We came upon Bluegum by accident, in search of a wedding venue, but what a perfect coincidence! All about Bluegum is exquisite, from the service to the tasteful rooms. We loved how many children there were. Our room was perfect, with a beautiful view and a huge bath! We opted for a private supper by our own fireplace, and even the food was wonderful. We cannot recommend Bluegum enough, and will definitely be back for an entire weekend, tons of books to read and lined up for relaxing. Anton is a SUPER host! Thank you for making our stay, extra special.

My husband and I went to Get away from the hustle and bustle and that is exactly what we got. We loved our stay. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Elephant Room and it was very spacious and a private balcony. We couldn't have asked for more. There is a lot to do to keep you occupied in a relaxed way and at night the stars are also amazing. The breakfast was delicious and the fact that you can order food and drinks during your stay is very convenient if you don't want to drive anywhere. We will definitely be back. Thank you Anton for a great stay!

This is one of the most amazing places we stayed in. The fire place that Anton set up for us in our room after our dinner. The dinner that was made specially for us cos we are vegan. The rooms, the people who works there and the area are all amazing. Thank u again

Wonderfully peaceful retreat in the overberg! So much attention to detail, more so than some 5 star places I have stayed. Anton was exceptionally accommodating to our catering needs and was an excellent host! Highly recommended!
