We were privileged to be able to spend an amazing weekend at this little piece of Paradise.
Hermanus is just 90 minutes drive out of Cape Town , there you will find nestled between a mountain and the sea is this amazing little bed and breakfast called Villa Blu. Villa Blu is about a 10 minute slow walk from the well known Grotto Bay and a 5-10 minute drive from city centre.
On arrival we were greeted at the gate by Elizabeth who made us feel as though we were visiting a long lost friend or family member. She took us on a tour of the b&b and then showed us the way to our room. We were greeted by two mini bottles of Jc Le Roux sparkling wine and a cheese platter for two.
Our room was on the ground floor and had doors which open to the garden and pool area. The room was equipped with a queen size bed, TV with DSTV, fully stocked mini fridge (at affordable prices), beach towels, gowns , pretty much everything you could think of Villa Blu has made provision for. Our room had an en suite which consisted of a bath and shower.
Facilities and decor
They have seriously thought of everything to make your stay a comfortable one, it feels like your home away from home. There is two communal living rooms with indoor fire places which all guests can make use of. The pool area is equipped with loungers as well as braai facilities. The decor is well thought out with a rustic type touch to it. We absolutely fell in love with the different paintings they had all around the b&b, it really added to the feel of the place. Our favourite room is the upstairs living room, where the one fireplace is situated, it has the cutest little couch with dolphin details in the wood.
Breakfast is a real occasion at Villa Blu. Seated in a cosy little dining area right next to the kitchen, your morning starts off with a spread of cereals, fruits, yoghurts, juices,cold meats,cheeses,toast with preserves and pastries. Then comes the warm meal eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes and baked banana and it ends off with dessert. Yes dessert with breakfast, isn’t that what holidays are for? Breakfast is served with your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. You can look forward to breakfast chats with the team over at Villa Blu, where Liezel gave us some tourism leaflets and suggestions on what attractions to check out.
Villa Blu is the ideal romantic getaway destination.The staff are extremely friendly and they really go out of their way to make you feel at home. They have thought of all the little things that makes your stay extra special. Villa Blu will definitely be our go to accommadation in Hermanus.
