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. Lézard Bleu was a great house anyway, so this latest extravagant addition represents one huge 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 snakes pleasingly from area to area, each room with its own doors out to a patio and to the large pool, where deck loungers take it easy on a surrounding timber deck. There are real fires in winter, an honesty bar, free wifi in all the rooms and the garden, as well as a Mac for guest use if you are lacking your own gadgetry - mere details, but typical. Individual, creative, very comfortable, but most importantly this is somewhere really natural and friendly. Children welcome from the age of 6 years old.
