We have received our Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for last 5 years and we are rated no 7 out of of 155 B&Bs on Trip Advisor.

Ughetta greeted us on arrival, such was her personality both my wife and I felt relaxed. The Guest House is situated up a steep road with panoramic views from the rear aspect overlooking the Stadium in the middle with the Quays to the right and Three Anchor Bay to the left. Ughetta obtained assistance with transferring our luggage from our car to our room. Our room no. 5 overlooked the panoramic scene, was spacious with a separate large bathroom porcelain non-slip tiles, shower, wash basin and bath.

"A quality Guest House owned by two sisters whose forte is to please their guests"

We returned to Bluegum with some of our family so they could experience the views from the guesthouse and the excellent service from Aissa and Ughetta and their small team. We were not disappointed and in fact enjoyed the stay even more second time around. Our family too loved the stay. The owners were so accommodating, helping with bookings and other arrangements. When one of our party was unwell they could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I am sure we will be returning for a 3rd visit in the future.

"Second visit and still fabulous"

Lovely accommodation, truly the best view in cape town and the owners couldn't do enough for us. We really enjoyed it here! There are a lot of steps with no disability access, so not suitable if this concerns you.

Ughetta and Aissa Parenti are host/owners of an outstanding Guest House in the Green Point section of Cape Town. This Guest House is located in a very safe neighborhood with amazing views of Cape Town, the water and the soccer stadium.

When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the staff and Ughetta who provided my wife and I with a wealth of information that would prove helpful throughout our stay in Cape Town. She even planned a take away breakfast when we advised her of what day we would be visiting Robben Island. We subsequently met Aissa, who was equally as warm and helpful as her sister. She provided access to one of the three garages for our rental car which was very convenient and provided added peace of mind. Note however, that there is some street parking and a security guard is on duty at night. After we had returned our rental vehicle, we were able to use Uber which provided excellent service to and from Bluegum Hill.

During our visit we had the pleasure of meeting Aissa’s lovely dog, Mila. I challenge any guest not to fall in love with this beautiful dog!

We were in Room 2, which was very comfortable and had a lovely terrace, which led down to a small pool. The room had a safe, television and plenty of storage. The bathroom had a large soaking tub with a separate shower stall. The bathroom also had a bidet in addition to the toilet.

Breakfast was included and was very good. The buffet included croissant, muffins, fruit salad, cereals, yogurts, fruit juices, tea and coffee. In addition, English breakfast items can be cooked to order; this includes, eggs cooked to order, bacon and beef sausage. The breakfast was available from 8:00am to 11:00am and was a delicious start to our days in Cape Town.
Each room also had a complimentary tea and coffee service and a few delicious cookies. On the lower level there is a very reasonably priced honor bar (a full sized refrigerator) with a variety of beverages and snacks for guests to choose from.

Aissa, Ughetta and the Bluegum Hill staff really made us feel like honored guests at their home. Our stay at Bluegum Hill made our time in Cape Town even more special than it already was.

We stayed in this guesthouse during November, and we couldn't ask for more. The room was small double but big enough for us, the view from it was just spectacular and waking up every morning was just a pleasure. Upon arrival Aissa greeted us, and provided with hints and tips about the town, also booked a trips, and was always happy to help whenever we needed it. Breakfast was delicious and there was so much to choose from. Ladies working at the guesthouse are so nice, and even packed breakfast for us to take away when we had to leave very early in the morning. The lokaction is very safe and close to restaurants and waterfront, we walked there even at night with no problem. We enjoyed our stay there so much that we will definitely book this place again on next visit, and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Aissa

"Breathtaking views"

This B&B is situated in the highest road of Signal Hill, above there is wood .So as you are high up the view over V&A watefront, the Soccer Stadium and, weather permitting, Robben Island is very nice. Our room was clean and we had everything we needed, big bathroom with shower and bathtub. Nice honesty bar, wine, beer and soft Drinks. Nice hot and cold breakfast. As the Guesthouse is far up the hill the entrance is a couple of steep stairs off the road, which can be quite tricky with suitcases. Our room was a spiral staircase down the breeakfast room, so if you are bad at climbing stairs choose an upstair room. The staff was very helpful carrying our luggage, so this is not a problems. The owners very helpful with recommendations for nice Restaurants. And they organize an Airport shuttle if you want
