Casa Mia Guest House, Bloubergstrand, Cape Town

In a city where hotels and accommodation offerings can charge exorbitant rates, Casa Mia Guest House in Bloubergstrand, northwest of Cape Town, is a great deal.

Casa Mia is situated on the border of the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, with superb uninterrupted views of Table Mountain and Robben Island in the distance and the white sandy beaches of the blue Atlantic within minutes.

This Tuscan-styled guest house adds its own distinct personality to the Cape Town accommodation market. Its yellow-brown walls and arched doorways that open to a beautiful courtyard are unmissable.

Casa Mia is located only 20 minutes away from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. It is just 3km to the beach at Bloubergstrand, where kite surfers have learnt to harness the epic winds of the Atlantic.

It is actually a bed and breakfast offering with the exception of those staying in their Presidential Suite. The establishment was built with the idea of meeting the needs of business travellers and offering a peaceful retreat for romantics and holidaymakers.

“After being in the business for 25 years, we mastered the balance of satisfying the needs of our guests; many became returning friends,” says Kirstein Combrink, Manager at Casa Mia Guest House.

The establishment’s Honesty Bar is a great place to be to end an eventful day. They offer a variety of drinks including good quality red and white wines, soft drinks, beers and ciders. If you feel like unwinding, have a go at snooker or billiards on the full size table.

Although your car is parked in a dedicated off-street area, your hosts have gone the extra mile and installed security cameras and external perimeter security beams. Safes are available in the rooms for valuables or cash.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
