It's going to be hard to book the treehouse, particularly when word gets round, but you have got to try! Surely the most wonderful bedroom in Cape Town. The trunks of two giant palm trees spear through a wooden deck at vertiginous heights and a tiny balcony is in among the topmost fronds and spikes. Lezard Bleu was just about the best guest house in Cape Town anyway, so this latest extravagant addition represents one great big cherry on a mouthwatering cake. Niki is an actress and Chris is a chef, although he has hung up his hat now...no, don't even ask! They are still young and humorous and the house remains sleek and modern with solid maplewood bedframes, white pure cotton, sandy shades and tones, bright splashes of local and modern art on the walls.
Breakfast is the best beanfeast in Cape Town (and that's the opinion of other guest house owners). The Blue Lizard sneaks pleasingly from area to area, each room has it's own doors out onto a patio and to the large pool, where sunbathers relax on a stunning surrounding hard wood deck. There are real log fires in winter, a honesty bar, free internet access - mere details of the house, but typical of the standard. Individual, creative, very comfortable, but most importantly this is somewhere really natural and friendly.
