What a magical weekend! Cactus Blue provided and ideal base for our visit to this beautiful town. We loved our delightful room and will certainly be back to further explore the wonders of the Karoo. Thanks for having us!

There’s a thin line between making a guest feel very comfortable & at home…and making the guest want to find their own place – just as good…you’ve made us cross the line!! We’ll be back! Spatially you’ve caught much of the Karoo town essence in Cactus Blue. needless to say we had a wonderful stay!!

Thank you for a wonderful weekend at Cactus Blue! Perfectly situated for all Olive Festival activities & visiting amazing restaurants nearby – the Gallery Café being our favourite! Also loved braaing in the aloe filled courtyard & drinking red wine in front of a fire in the big fireplace inside! Look forward to visiting again!

We loved Cactus Blue and wish we had more time. Thanks for everything!

Been back for more twice again! Last time with Usidi & Bert von Sethe, my parents…with our arms full of fresh Moroccan aubergines, tomatoes, Karoo Honey, wine. We had no hand free to write in the book. Now back with my sister from Munich. We loved the fresh mountain air in the Swartberg Pass in the morning. Breakfast outside in Cactus Blue, dappled light under the latte, with yoghurt and cheese from the dairy. All was wonderful! I left my impressions on canvas in the gallery!!

Tnk u tnk u, wow!! A home away from home.

What a lovely holiday home – we were really comfortable & it is a wrench to leave. Just loved the ‘tanning deck’! It is also great being in the heart of town but also tucked away and private.

Being at Cactus Blue has really been the cherry on the top for us on our honeymoon journey. Thank you for a peaceful, soul-soothing stay. We can see so much care and attention has gone into making it such a unique and cosy haven.

What started out to be a one-night stop at Cactus ended up being four very relaxing days, soaking up the hot Karoo sun!

It’s seldom you book a place ‘blind’ and get way more than you hoped for. Cactus Blue was a delightful surprise. It’s tasteful, funky, generous and beautiful.
