What a truly amazing experience it was to be at Blue Roan.  Perfect place to come and relax and forget about the city hustle and bustle.  The scenery is just breathtaking, the décor of the wonderful Mexican Loft was something so unique.  We plan on coming back to visit the other rooms.  Judy and Yossi, you guys are wonderful and so welcoming.  Thank you for the experience.


Jaco & Zelda da Silva

Dear Judy and Yossi, thank you for making our stay memorable and awesome!!  Beautiful chalet with stunning views - most relaxing atmosphere.  Will see you again!

Absolutely stunning room!  Beautifully decorated.  Privatae and loads of space.  Thank you for a lovely relaxing break. And we love the pool and lapa!  We will be back soon.

Clinton & Tarryn (Max, Mia & Charlie - our yorkies)

Dear Judy & Yossi.  It is our first day of our "spontaneous" weekend away and we are SO relaxed.  Clinton could not have chosen a better place!  Your warm disposition made us feel extremely welcome and the fact that you took the extra effort to swap us to a chalet that was more accommodating and safe for our' furkids' will never be forgotten.  We are already planning our next visit to your beautiful guest farm - our new home away from home.  The detail that you put into making this a truly wonderful experience for your guests, is phenomenal.  Mia, of course, wants to adopt your biggest dog and the horses.  She can't understand why we can't have them!  Thanks again, we will definitely be back.


Sonja & Kim

Dear Judy

Thanks so much for two relaxing and most enjoyable days that Kim and I spent at your  beautiful Guest Farm.  The lovely flowers and sweet card that you put in our Tuscan Cottage started the weekend on a special note.  Kim certainly didn’t exaggerate when she told me all about your place after she and Demetri had stayed there.  It was great meeting you and Yossi and having some lovely chats
.  Having animals – 6 dogs, 2 cats (which, unfortunately we never met) and 2 horses – gave it a more homely feel to our stay.  Well, Kim and I really ‘’blobbed’’ all weekend and watched some enjoyable DVD’s (from your huge collection) and movies (on DStv) while we ate, ate and ate some more, with the occasional stroll on your lovely property!   Our cottage was charming and we soon felt at home.


Kim & Demetri

Day 1 of "Bluebush" weekend - already I feel like I have stepped into another world - and this is just the beginning.  Already I want to thank my host, Judy, for a trip envisioned to be heavenly!  Thank you for a wonderful weekend. All the little details and superb setup of your cottages against the highveld sunsets.  We will be back!


Michael and Bianca

We had an amazing weekend at Blue Roan.  We felt very at home at the Villa and it reached a higher expectation than ever imagined.  We will definitely return.  Thank you so much Blue Roan for your amazing hospitality.
